Who walked today?

Did anyone else walk to work today?
I didn't see any of you. On my more than 2 km walk to work today I didn't notice one other person waling to work. Why do I ask? Well it was National Walk to work day today. I am sure others did, but on a two km walk which brought me past one of the largest employment hubs of Darwin I expected to see at least a few walkers. My neighbor walks every day but must have gone earlier.

I'm glad I walked! It was such a pleasant experience all but walking past Casuarina Shopping centre where I discovered that drivers don't only try to knock over cyclists! Pedestrians are on the menu as well!
It's been more than a year since I last walked to work and actually I can't even remember the last time I walked that distance. How slack!
Thanks to whoever came up with the idea. I thoroughly enjoyed my walk. Hopefully it won't be so long until the next time.

I love walking. It's what my Meindl boots are for.

Ah yes. I remember hiking boots. I still have a pair rotting away in the cupboard! They were so comfortable I walked across Cradle Mountain in them before I'd even worn them in. That was about 15 years ago. I haven't done any decent hikes since. I now wear thongs for most occasions. They are fine for cycling (on the down peddle) but give me blisters when I walk too far in them.
