Decided to walk home after work today. The total distance isn't all that far, about 6-7km, and it's along a straight road so the chances of me getting lost was really quite minimal.
Packed my stuff in a trusty backpack, changed into comfortable walking shoes and attire (comfort is key!) and set off.
The walk back was actually quite pleasant. Most of the way was along a park connector, so there was ample greenery, and although the main road was just next to the path, the traffic fumes weren't that bad.
Playing music helps as well, and I was happily singing along to Queen. Think I might have startled (or amused) some of the bangla workers at one of the construction site as I warbled along.
I don't know why people are making such a big fuss of this though. I've walked longer distances back home before (last time it took over 4 hours!) so this was relatively simple in comparison. There wasn't any particular reason why I chose to walk back either, except to see if I could or not. Lol.
The last part of the walk was a little challenging though. Getting close to home but not familiar enough to take short cuts. Decided to stick with the main roads instead of risk getting lost. Perhaps next time.
