Walking is the age-old form of travel

“Walking to ease the mind is an objective of the pilgrim. There is a spiritual dimension too: the walk itself is part of the process of purification. Walking is the age-old form of travel, the most fundamental, perhaps the most revealing.”
–Paul Theroux, The Tao of Travel (2011)
