 Active travel is about journeying through a fascinating region under your own power. On foot and on a bike, you can really get a visceral sense of place. Without any filters, you’re free to truly be where you are. The wind in your face. The sun on your back. Reconnecting with yourself and others. The feeling that right now, and for the next few days, you control your own destiny. And always just ahead, the next unexpected moment you’ll carry with you forever: a ruined castle shrouded in mist as the sun appears over the mountains… a flock of birds rising in a shimmering cloud from a vast river delta… a waiter lighting lamps on the café tables, saluting the village priest as he climbs the cathedral steps…
