    Walk Grand Central Station in New York City

    By

    New York City is a city of walkers so you do not have to look for opportunities to walk when you are there. When I visit the city I walk an average of 3 to 5 miles per day. I know this because I take my pedometer with me and wear it at least one day of my trip. I

    Hiking Via dell’Amore Lovers’ Lane – Cinque Terre

    By

    The Via dell’Amore hiking trail in Cinque Terre, Italy runs between Riomaggiore and Manarola. I use the term hiking trail loosely because it is actually a paved path and is very easy to walk. It would be easy to push a stroller or wheelchair on the path but I do not believe the path is wheelchair accessible. To get to

    No Hiking in Stilettos

    By

      This sign shows a pair of pink high heels with a big X through them, meaning “No Hiking in High Heels!” For most of us this would be a totally needless sign because it would never occur to us to actually hike in high heels. But if they have a sign preventing it, that means that people were actually

    Portland, Oregon – City Walk – Chinese Garden Review

    By

    The Chinese Garden in Portland, Oregon is a beautiful place for a walk. It is especially beautiful in the rain and that is important since chances are it will be raining when you visit. You will not burn a lot of calories walking around the Chinese Garden because you will not be walking very far. But, you will burn more

    Mt. Etna is located on Sicily, the island being kicked by the toe of the boot of Italy. Mt. Etna is Europe’s most active volcano and is visible from all over the eastern part of the island.

    Seattle, Washington – Discovering Walker’s Paradise

    By

    I recently visited Seattle, Washington for a long weekend and it was well worth the 5 hour flight. The thing I love about Seattle, other than the low humidity, is the fact that there are so many in town neighborhoods that are a walker’s paradise. I stayed in West Seattle where it was an easy walk to restaurants, bars, coffee

    The colors are the first thing you notice when you start your walking vacation in Sicily, Italy. The sea is a surreal mix of blues and greens.
