Friedrich Nietzsche on walking

Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche

A wonderful quote by  Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher and composer. Written in 1888 and taken from "Twilight of the Idols, or, How to Philosophize with a Hammer"

Only thoughts reached by walking have value
— Friedrich Nietzsche - Twilight of the Idols, or, How to Philosophize with a Hammer, 1888

Wisdom from the wise, I couldn't agree more or have said it better.

The Secret Worlds of Colin Fletcher

Secret Worlds of Colin Fletcher

Secret Worlds of Colin Fletcher

I just finished "The Secret Worlds of Colin Fletcher" a truly engrossing collection of Fletchers stories, each one painting an increasingly vivid picture of Fletcher through his musings. He strives endlessly and at times aggressively for solitude as he passes through different, changing landscapes hunting an epiphany, an answer to a question which haunted him; just how is it possible (if at all) for man to live in harmony with nature in the modern age.

This is not an instructional book like "The Complete Walker" and is less of a travelogue than "The Man Who Walked Through Time" but I feel it's essential reading for anyone true lover of the great outdoors.
