To Let Your Mind Wander, Travel on Foot

From a Times Insider column by Sarah Bahr headlined “To Let Your Mind Wander, Travel on Foot”:

Not every walk is a walk in the park.

One might decide to trek 1.6 miles through Singapore’s red-light district, for example, and stop along the way to sample local delicacies like mud crabs and frog porridge. Or take a 750-mile pilgrimage across 28 days and 88 temples on Shikoku, the smallest of Japan’s four main islands. Or even run through the rocky trails of the Dolomites, a mountain range in Italy.
