Walk, don't run

I love my walk to work.  I have carefully refined my route to include as much green space as I can, and it's really one of my favourite parts of the day.  I used to walk another way which was greyer and busier and generally a bit rubbish, until I found out I could walk along the river almost the whole way and now I love it! I try to vary my route slightly to keep things interesting - at its best I walk through 3 parks and hardly any roads.

This week we had some rare sunshine in between all the rain and clouds and so I took some pictures of my favourite bits to share.  Bristol is such a good, green city - I love how lots of the green spaces are a little bit wild, not all carefully maintained lawns and flower beds, but overgrown hedgerows and long grass.  It's really easy to forget you're in the middle of the city sometimes.  Hurrah for Bristol!  And hurrah for walking to work.  A zilllion times better than sitting in traffic. 



  1. What a lovely way to start your day. I love Bristol so much, it is a great city to walk in. Rachel x

  2. It is, isn't it? Even with all the hills! I moved away from Bristol for 2 months once, and I missed all the trees and green so much. So glad I moved back! x
