The perfect prescription for those tired of everyday routines, 40 short walking courses for any season of the year
- Book Intro
How about a little walk to give your mind and body a stretch?
Light and easy half-day trips
This book introduces the concept of the short “walking trip,” for those who can’t spare much money, time or mind.
A walking trip feels more like a leisurely stroll where you are not bound by travel itineraries. It also frees you from tight schedules, complications of trip-packing and preparing, and allows for a more generous travel budget. We often think that we must do certain things to make a trip complete. Is it true that we must cross off everything on our to-do list to make a trip a successful one? When it is not work-related we travel for pleasure, and walking trips are the perfect way to achieve this goal.
Check out the six chapters that illustrate different concepts of traveling. Roads for walking alone, roads for walking with a companion, roads close to the Seoul metropolitan area, roads filled with phytoncide, and choose the one that best fits your travel needs. Each chapter starts by introducing the course and must-stroll spots. Readers can read about ways to get to their destination, information about the course, and also eating spots and nearby attractions. Most walking courses take between 40 minutes and 2 hours, but this is merely an average estimate. How much of the course is to be explored is entirely up to the traveler. Have you chosen your destination? Then just grab a bottle of water and walking shoes, and you’re good to go. Let us embark on this short, but truly healing walking trip, together.
