Because as we know it's all about the journey

Over a month ago the lovely Miret (@zurichvienna) nominated me - to tell my story of what I see from where I stand. This started my collection of #fromwhereistand photos but what was missing was an idea to weave them into a story. Then my friends (@5milesinmyshoes) came up with a great idea of a charitable photo walk. And this got me thinking that I see what I see, from where I stand, because I walk. So here are mini stories from my walks - organised & disorganised, aimless & purposeful.

Walking - it's a slippery slope, especially when you don't know your destination. 😁 Invergarry, Isle of Skye, Scotland

But it can take you to wonderful places unknown. Oeschenesee, Bern, Switzerland

And to the comfort of the place you call home.

Bangalore, India

From there to see places you've never seen before. Fairy Pools, Isle of Skye, Scotland

And to wash away your worries. Fairy Pools, Isle of Skye, Scotland

As you make new memories. Oeschenesee, Bern, Switzerland

To spend some quality time with your loved ones.

Oeschnensee, Bern, Switzerland

And to take you to the lakeside, to put your feet up as you watch the fading sun. Zugersee, Switzerland

Thankfully it also gives you a reality check when you need one. Portree, Isle of Skye, Scotland

There are so many things that make walking (and of course taking photos along the way) amazing. But what if you could do it for a charitable cause? On Sunday 26th July 2015 @5milesinmyshoes along with @stellerstories is organising a charity photo walk, so join in wherever you are, if you would like to raise funds and awareness for OXFAM, WWF and UNICEF. All you need to do is get sponsored to walk five miles and share your pictures. 😃 If you are in London and want to come along for a walk from Tower Bridge, RSVP : www.meetup.com/five-miles-in-my-shoes-London If you are not in London Town but would like to walk, the lovelies @5milesinmyshoes will help you create your own walk. You can raise funds direct to their JustGiving page here: www.justgiving.com/teams/fivemilesinmyshoes Or set up your own page. Just click on @5milesinmyshoes for more information.😃
