Frances likes to go on long walks. She walks an average of 12 kilometres per day.
We asked Frances why she likes walking.
When did you take up walking?
When I was young, I worked on a farm. I walked between the dairy farm and the sheep farm. It was 10 kilometres a day. Sometimes, I did it twice in a day.
Why do you walk now?
I walk to be in nature and to explore the city. I also practice yoga daily. I add meditation into my walking.
Do you wear special clothing?
It depends on the weather and season. I always wear polarized sunglasses. I also bring a camera to take photos.
What is your favourite thing about walking?
I like to take a dog friend with me on my walks. My friends are Stanley, Charlie and Reuben.
