For most of us walking is easy, its cheap and its a great way to take exercise as well as get to work, home, rest or play.
You can spend a lot of money on walking gear but you don’t have to.
- Good boots or walking shoes and socks,
- something waterproof and windproof,
- a rucksack, a map and a picnic – even if you’re in town you can find a bench somewhere to have a snack
And once these things are bought they should last a while – and can be used for all sorts.
Start when the weather is good, walk to town, walk to the shops, walk round a park, join a walk or walk with a pal, talk to others who walk, and you can add things like hats and gloves as the weather changes.
Start with well-trodden paths and then when you get familiar with maps you can start to explore more.
