The best way to acquaint yourself with a landscape is to discover it on foot. This is as well the oldest “mean of transport” of mankind and our senses are made to work best at this pace.
Effectively by going “SLOW” we are able to absorb intensely the various impressions and impulses that our surroundings give us.
To see how the landscape changes at every step, to hear the sounds: the singing birds, the humming insects, the roaring surf and the whispering wind, to smell the fragrances of the nature: the flavour of the flowers and herbs in spring time, the aroma of mushrooms and wet leaves in autumn. And at end of the day we feel a sweet tiredness in our legs, when we stretch them out under a table full of inviting plates which we are hungry to taste: the wine, the pasta, the cheese, the local specialities…
These are the pleasures that walking gives us – pleasures as old as humanity
