Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Walking, by Erling Kagge.   

'Everything moves more slowly when I walk, the world seems softer....'  

From the best-selling author of Silence comes an illuminating exploration of the joy of walking. From those perilous first steps to great expeditions, from walking to work to walking to the North Pole, Erling Kagge explains that he who walks lives longer - and better.  

'After having put my shoes on and let my thoughts wander, I am sure of one thing - to put one foot in front of the other is one of the most important things we do.'

Loved it

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's very humble, simple in its message, and that's exactly what I was looking for. It basically tells you why walking is so enjoyable, how it can change your perspective on things, and a few stories of people who walk long distances, included the author. I read it in preparation for the Camino de Santiago, and it did the trick, as it motivated me and inspired me. After reading it, i couldn't wait to go walking my 250km on the Camino :)
