Hiking in my neighbourhood

I am so lucky living in a city where I actually can be hiking in my neighbourhood.

My city

I am living in a small town called Bodo with just 50 000 inhabitants. Many of us, including me come from suburban districts and we have to move to a city for college or university.

Every Sundays my best friend and I are having a long walk. It can be up in the mountain or by the sea. Everything is so close. The opportunities are many. Our goal is to reach a minimum of 10 000 steps and that is not hard to get.

We are up in the mountain looking down at the town. The funny thing is when we are walking we nod or say hello to complete strangers, and sometimes many want to talk. I find that really amusing. Maybe that is strengthened because of the pandemic. But that is also a part of the north Norwegian spirit.

This time of the year you have to wear shoes with ice spikes on. To days walk was really icy, but we came down safely. It was windy and – 10 degrees Celsius, so we had to be dressed properly. Almost wool inside out.

I love these walks, because it give me so much energy. The anxiety ease of and I sleep better at nights. I am not depended on my friend, but the advantage is that we are pushing each other to reach our goal. But sometimes I have to to walk alone and then my companion is an audio book. It is not the same as the companion of a friend, but it makes the walk easier.
