When I am at home I try to walk every day. The route is always the same. There are few roads in our neighborhood which means I don’t have to concentrate on where I am. This allows me to enjoy the scenery as it changes with the seasons.
Sometimes we go to visit family in southern California and again, I try to walk every day. As I walk, I can’t help but notice some differences.
