Welcome to MORE !
Here you will you will find short excerpts and outtakes from Walking to Japan, anecdotes about Derek Youngs, and my own ponderings about the book and the man.
The last time I was in the UK, I had the good fortune to be interviewed for the podcast “Talking Walking”, by the very personable Andrew Stuck, Founding Director of the Museum of Walking, and design consultant at Rethinking Cities. One of his main concerns is the walkability of urban environments, but his podcast show features people from a spectrum of disciplines talking about all aspects of walking. As we meandered through the streets of busy Bermondsey, I talked mostly about “Walking to Japan”. In retrospect I wish I’d mentioned my early-mid 2000s project of walking all the streets of Vancouver, Canada, but being in London at the time, I enthused about one of my favourite walks there. Do check out the interview and the large catalogue of podcasts!
I am thrilled to announce that Walking to Japan has won a silver medal at the 2017 Living Now Book Awards, in the Inspirational Memoir category!
These awards celebrate creativity and innovation in books that enhance the quality of life, from cooking and gardening to spirituality and wellness.
