Are you the type of person who enjoys taking a walk and getting lost? Do you like to wander around, or do you think this type of walking is pointless? Some people only want to walk if they have a place to go. Other people enjoy a relaxing stroll with no place to go. Both types of walking are good for a person’s health.

People walk for many reasons. For example, some people like to walk to work every day. This can be calming, and it is a good way to get extra exercise. Going on hikes is another way to enjoy walking. You can explore a mountain or other natural place on a hike. Often, you will find a great vista point with a beautiful view.

Gary and Brian are talking about walking. Gary walks everyday because it is soothing. Find out more in today’s English lesson about going for walks.

Gary:  Brian, did you know that every single morning on my way to work, I go for a nice long walk.

Brian:  Oh, you walk to work.

Gary:  No, I go for a calming, relaxing walk. And then I go to work.

Brian:  But you’re not walking because your destination is your work place?

Gary:  No, I do it because it’s a habit, and I just relax when I do it. It’s really soothing.

Brian:  Doesn’t that seem kind of pointless? The only time I ever wander is when I’m lost or when I’m not sure where I’m going. And that is so frustrating.

Gary:  So, you don’t like walking and getting lost while walking?

Brian:  I like walking somewhere, but I don’t understand the stroll or the meandering walk that folks go on.

Gary:  I think that my favorite type of walking is in the woods. So, a relaxing walk in the woods, hanging out in the woods, and then heading home.

Brian:  I guess that makes sense. I do like to go on hikes, which is similar. But usually the hikes I go on have a destination. They have a really nice vista point.

Gary:  Sure. Yeah, that’s not a mundane kind of walk. That’s actually really enjoyable.

YES YES YES!


I enjoy going for a walk when Im sad or happy!


When I want to think about something special or when I need to take a long walk without having a plan and maybe I get lost!


It’s very calming and soothing for me!


I prefer meandering walks or go on hikes with my friends, not alone!


Of course I have to confess my city is too polluted for walking! 😔


And walking in nature! Who dosent love that??😌

walking is beautiful ,if you like it..


walking is to feel nature..to see  Harmony in the Nature..among land,sky and sea..


from sunrise to sunset..in four season..


walking is to feel the life ..to see beautiful colours of nature, to listen different sounds ,to take fresh breaths.


when you walked ,you feel rains,snows,winds,sun lights,


ı like two blue colours sky and sea meeting …ı like golden colours on the surface of sea waves..ı like dews on the flowers,roses after rains…ı like snow on the bunch of trees..ı like waves that kiss hot sands in summer..bird chirpings on the forest..
