Walking and counting.
Antonio Muñoz Molina, Mario Vargas Llosa and Miguel Delibes are some of the writers who make up the club of tireless walkers that includes a long list of philosophers, journalists and even politicians.
Millions of Steps is the personal vision of Carolina Reymúndez, a book that includes chronicles (a trek in the Torres del Paine National Park, in Chile, and another in the Brecon Beacons Park, in Wales; 18 km in Buenos Aires and 120 km on the Camino de Santiago), the story of a man who is walking to Alaska and several talks (with an expert in urban walkability, an amputee, a Chinese reflexologist and walking analysts).
These 20 chapters include walkers, hikes, feet, pilgrimages, tears, pedometers, gym tapes, kinesiologists, a library of walking, epic wanderings, losing one’s way and, as a final point, the impossibility of walking during the confinement of these recent months and the “clandestine” walks that have arisen in the context of the global confinement due to the coronavirus.
Walking is a physical activity that favors thought and reflection.
Carolina Reymúndez sheds light, with incredible narrative skill, on walks, experiences, travels, conversations, readings and snippets of life.
