Placing one foot in front of the other and embarking on the journey of discovery are activities intrinsic to our nature, but each of us will experience it differently. For Norwegian explorer Erling Kagge, it is a natural accompaniment to creativity: the occasion for the unspoken dialogue of thinking. "Walking expands time rather than collapses it," Kagge notes, and presents it as a radical antidote to our high-speed lives, to our insistence on rushing, and on doing everything in a precipitous manner. On this leisurely, conversational journey, Kagge also cites such writers (and flaneurs) as Michel de Montaigne, Henry David Thoreau, Milan Kundera, and Robert Walser.
