Wayfarer


Wayfarer (n.) – Origin: English – Definition: Someone who travels, especially on foot.

I love to hike and travel and walk towards the unknown.  Walking allows you to really take your time and observe the life and things around you.  I like walking with people and equally, walking alone.

So many footsteps later and I’m still walking and preferring to walk.  However, I have finally arrived back in the U.S. where I will be posted for the next two years and I actually forgot how difficult it can be to walk to things during your normal daily life.  Like restocking your food supply, picking out furniture, public transportation with an area rug.  Anything that requires more than two light bags of things to carry can be complicated and painful.

My car is still in transit and everything is close to where I live.  So I didn’t think walking would be an issue.   That is until I remembered how I shop.  Only 3 things needed today, easy peasy.  But wait.. wow.. i haven’t seen this in awhile.  25 items later… 20 minutes by foot later.. arms about to fall off later.. I broke down and bought a little red wagon.  Or as my sister likes to call it a foldable grocery cart.

I am dreaming of long hikes with only a backpack, or better yet.. just a water bottle.  No complaints though really.  I am still loving walking.  I will continue to walk.  I just have to become good friends with my newest and closest companion.. Why, hello Amazon..

So I’m not sure i spelled that correctly but it’s where I was.  The pictures were taken over a couple of days.  Just walking to and from work.  Some of my favorite shots.

Can’t imagine there is not a crowd.

Then there is a before and after shot.. shoot pass if you are squeamish.

Most days feel like dog days.  Especially in front of the butchers.

Some modes of transportation either passing me, parked along side me or nearly running over me.

Then there are your workers, waiters, walkers and businessmen.

Then at last, some final random photos that didn’t really fit into any other theme.
