I Would Walk 500 Miles

Today’s Bloganuary prompt is:

What is a road trip you would love to take?

Going anywhere with good friends is a treasure. But road trips aren’t my favorite. Mainly because I don’t enjoy driving (that’s what living in a city for 25 years with no car will do to you) and riding as a passenger lulls me to sleep immediately.

Walking, however, is another story. I love walking. I love the rhythm of walking, the ability to take so much in. You move slowly enough that the details don’t escape you. My favorite manner of walking is walking without a schedule. Meandering and allowing the day to unfold. There are a couple of walks in the United Kingdom that have piqued my interest – the Coast to Coast, the walk along Hadrian’s Wall. And once there, I’m sure I would discover many more.

For now, though, I’m happy walking the trails of the Blue Ridge Mountains when I can sneak away, or walking through Asheville neighborhoods and the Arboretum with Mom when I can’t.

  1. Love this. I literally started mine saying, my favorite road trip would be a walking trip! And then I started thinking about past road trips and got all nostalgic, which took me in a whole other direction. So cool how writing can do that…

  2. We DO truly enjoy walking. But i have to admit i love driving, too. Road trips have been our only travel since we haven’t flown anywhere for the past couple years …
