On line meet up with Saira Niazi: “Walking as a woman of colour”

As a young girl I was taught that it is unsafe to wander alone. As a woman, I find nothing brings me more peace than wandering alone. I’ve traversed remote ‘nowhere’ landscapes; from lonely edgelands to expansive wetlands in areas throughout the world. Walking as a woman isn’t always easy, especially as woman of colour.

Life is travel, the case for the patron saint of walkers

The Vandals are at the gates. Augustine is deadly ill, spending his final days in prayer and repentance. Having coined the phrase "Solvitur ambulando", “it is solved by walking”, perhaps his ambulatory restlessness at the end of his life indirectly saved the city, as the Vandals initially retreated.
