Above all, do not loose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.
— Søren Kierkegaard

What is the difference of walking, hiking and rambling?

Walking, hiking, and rambling are all forms of physical activity that involve moving on foot, but there are some differences between them:

  1. Walking: Walking is the most basic and common form of physical activity that involves moving on foot. It can be done at a leisurely pace or at a faster speed, and can be performed on flat or uneven terrain. Walking is a low-impact activity that is accessible to most people, and it can be done as a form of exercise, for transportation, or for leisure.
  2. Hiking: Hiking involves walking on trails or paths that are typically unpaved and often in a natural setting, such as a forest, mountains, or hills. Hiking can be more challenging than walking, as it often involves uphill and downhill sections, and may require more stamina and endurance. Hiking can be done as a form of exercise, for recreation, or as part of outdoor activities such as camping or backpacking.
  3. Rambling: Rambling is a term used primarily in the UK to describe long walks in the countryside, often on footpaths and bridleways. Rambling is similar to hiking but may involve a more relaxed pace, and may be more focused on enjoying the scenery and the outdoors rather than achieving a specific fitness goal. Rambling is often done in groups, and may be part of a social or community activity.
