I don’t. Usually.
Actually I do, but not on purpose. Quite the opposite of my attitude while I was in Italy – where I would walk all the time, anywhere, anytime. But not here in America. I always think that there isn’t much to see here, unless I’m at the park.
I just started walking to my local library instead of driving. It’s a nice little 20 minute uphill/downhill walk both ways. Its funny the things you see as you walk, that you automatically ignore when you’re in your car. I noticed this:

Its also funny because sometimes I get odd stares when I walk, I guess because most people are only used to seeing teens or the elderly walking along the street. Or maybe they are wondering where I’m headed to. Or why I don’t have a car.
Either way, its good exercise, and as long as I can do it, I will.
