Lately, one of my favorite things to do has been to walk. Yep, as simple as that! I come from a very small town, during my childhood and my teenage years I've never used public transportation. I used to walk to high school, to the market, to the parks to meet my friends, to the forest, basically everywhere. When I moved to Bucharest, I started taking the tram or the subway for distances that weren't nearly as big as the ones I was used to in my hometown. I gave up to laziness...
Last year I went through a rough patch, and there were times when I could't stand being in crowds, I was feeling suffocated. I use the tram to get to and from work, and at a point I started to avoid crowded stations by getting off early and walking the rest of the distance. It felt amazing! I discovered I could easily and a lot more pleasantly get home by walking through a park and then by a lake, instead of being packed in a tram with a bunch of tired, sad faces. Instead, I was feeling the air, watching children play, happy people walking their dogs...
Then the winter came, the weather got cold and it was difficult for me to maintain the same routine. So I was back in the tram with the other sad faces :).
So you can imagine how happy I've been during the last days, now that Spring finally came and I'm able to go back to my therapeutic walks :).
With this in mind, I wish you a sunny week ahead!
