What is Walking Stories?
It's a site where people like you can share walking experiences and learn about new places to walk. It's a new community for anyone who enjoys walking, on routes of any distance and difficulty, anywhere in the world.
Walking / hiking is the most popular outdoor leisure activity. But how often have you arrived in a new area and wondered where you could go walking? Or come home after a great walk and wanted to share the route with others?
Walking Stories is for you!
You can read the stories, and if you become a member (for free), post stories of your own walking experiences!
You'll find Walking Stories of all types!
There are mountain climbs, countryside trails, and strolls through towns and cities. Colourful stories from Japan, China, Scotland, San Francisco and Tromsø, Greece and Dundee - even The Da Vinci Code locations at Rosslyn Chapel.
There's a Web Site Story page so you don't need to search for the latest additions to the site. Or check the site map.
Off the Beaten Track is another new section, with historic and literary walking stories, and other thought-provoking material. It includes stories from Matthew Parris' A Castle in Spain.
We will publish impressive photos from around the world - how would you like to see your best shots on the web? (Bill Cook has submitted some of his from the Himalayas, the Sahara, and Kilimanjaro, and Michael Gale from Peru).
Walking Stories is a new and expanding site launched in March 2005. We're adding new walks just now, and will be improving the design as soon as we can.
