"Sangeeta, Perfectly understandable. After the Tween Walk you can set your sites for a reasonable goal for The Big Walk. Most dont finish that distance but many try and have a good experience. See you soon. Paul"

Sangeeta,

Perfectly understandable. After the Tween Walk you can set your sites for a reasonable goal for The Big Walk. Most dont finish that distance but many try and have a good experience.

See you soon.

In Their Footsteps

Words to Walk By

A brief essay by Loredana Delluchi

Why Do You Want to Walk to Canada?

One beautiful day, while walking with FreeWalkers on the Connecticut East Coast Greenway (ECG), the desire to keep going all the way to Canada came over me. I spoke about it with my friends and the more I played with the idea, the bigger my smile became. 

Suddenly, my friend Ian Hochstead bent down, picked up a coin and said "Look Loredana!  It's a Canadian penny."  Overjoyed, with a theatrical reaction, I said "It's a sign! Now I must walk all the way to Canada to return the coin." 

During that same walk I met Ken Kurland who had the same dream of exploring the ECG to the Canada-US border at Calais, Maine. In fact, Ken and Nancy Jonap were already planning the next segment of the walk. I joined them and together we arrived in Providence. 

This year we are walking from Providence to Boston and I'm filled with joy thinking about the privilege I have to admire the beauty of America one step at the time.

Author Paulo Coelho wrote "When you really want something, the world conspires to make a dream come true".  

I'm grateful to Ken, Nancy, FreeWalkers and the ECG for helping me with my dream. One day I may be able to return the coin. :)


Loredana lives in New York City and has been a FreeWalker for over 5 years. She is the founder of a non-profit Knitting Without Borders, which provides hand-crafted teddy bears to sick children around the world. Her indomitable spirit inspires us all.
