We all do it; depending on where we live, some of us more than others. Placing one foot before the other is so natural that most of us give it little thought.
For those, “1,001 Walks You Must Take Before You Die: Country Hikes, Heritage Trails, Coastal Strolls, Mountain Paths, City Walks” will be a great resource.
The editors have put together a massive list of walks that range from the sublime (Fimmvorduhals in Iceland) to the whimsical (German Fairy Tale Route) to the macabre (Jack the Ripper Walk in London). All of the walks are accessible and “eminently doable” although, caution the editors, some involve climbing and others may require the services of an accredited guide.
The walks are organized geographically by continent, country and state or region. Amply illustrated, each entry consists of a short description of the walk, and most conclude with a helpful observation.
