GOOD WALKING BOOKS began as an idea of sharing walking journeys that we had experienced in Europe, South America and Australasia. Many people have said that they ‘would love to walk those paths, but don’t know where to begin’.
So, in 1999 we decided to put our travel journals and photos to good use and develop a range of informative educational courses and books as a resource for intending travellers, to make it easier for you who are thinking of walking these fascinating paths. * Almis Simans – books and presentations
THIS IS YOUR INVITATION to explore our world on foot. We appreciate other types of travel as well – Cruising, Bussing and Driving. However it is by walking that we can deeply immerse ourselves in the worlds of the Romans, the Vikings, the medieval European Kingdoms. We truly journey through history when we walk these ancient paths. * Carol – Itineraries
Why is walking becoming more popular? In a word: RE-ENGAGEMENT. Yes, we are re-engaging with the world around us. Walking gives us the opportunity to travel through landscapes at our human pace. It involves effort, but not struggle. Walking is one of the most natural motions and movements for the human body and we are now recognising its benefits. * Min – design, layout, ideas
