for the journey, not the message

Estelle in the Woods

I love to walk, but unfortunately at the young age of 21 its hard to find anyone else who shares the same love for stretching their legs. This is a good friend of mine, Estelle, we sometimes go on walks around London, we walk all day, for hours, until our feet hurt. Not to get anywhere, just to walk, we have been completely lost, we’ve walked round in circles without knowing it. We’ve seen some pretty cool things, and we’ve learnt a little more about the city we live in.

This photo is taken in a park near Muswell Hill, London. My memory of this moment is exactly the same as how this photo looks, we were both exhausted and slightly delirious. But it was a fun day.

    I love to walk too – and yes, just to be on my feet. Right now I’m loving trail walking and hiking, but when I’m in cities, I love just getting out and going and seeing where I end up. I’ve spent hours exploring San Francisco, Melbourne, New York, Chicago and Portland, Oregon. Thanks for this beautiful picture and the reminder of what a wonderful pleasure walking is!

  5. The best way to see the world is on foot. I start each day with a walk around the outskirts of my town whatever the weather!
