I haven’t joined in any WordPress memes before, but their recent invitation to join a worldwide 5 kilometre walk last week struck a chord.
I need to get more active, and the email mentioned Map My Walk. Is there a suitable route on there for Chippenham? It turned out there was.
I’d love to live somewhere where I can just step out the door into wonderful scenery, preferably with mountains or the sea, or both. Sadly living in Chippenham means urban walking from my door, or a drive elsewhere. At least I now have a 5 kilometre route with takes in 2 out of the 3 main open spaces the town has to offer.
Last Tuesday dawned bright and sunny and with the trees at their peak colour, I really had no excuse not to go.
And do you know what? I really enjoyed it!
