I Am Walking to St Pancras International
Meeting a friend in a couple of hours for a much needed natter and a cuppa, and have decided there is time to walk . In March I posted about the marvellous and ever flourishing site called walkit .com (Old Post About Walk It). It is not just for Londoners as there is information about many towns and cities in the UK. The wonderful thing is you can put your postcode in and then decide on direct, least polluted and it prints you out a map, written directions with all the important landmarks and how many steps it will take, the time it will take depending if you are racing, or chilling, how many calories you use, depending on how fast you are moving, and how much CO2 you are saving from tube car or bus (interestingly tube is less emissive than bus, but then that is probably because all it’s emissing is happening underground?)
Walkit now do circular routes from your house ( good for dog walkers) so you can tap in how long you want to walk and at what speed and it will sort out a nice little circular walk for you ( if you can call the Holloway Road a nice part of a circular walk)
So I had better get my skates ( good sensible walking shoes on ) as it is 2.4 miles, a mere snip for my fit friends, and will take between 36 mins and 1hr 13 mins depending if I am slacking or not!

Something gentle this morning , and a reminder to me with my songwriting hat, that it does not have to be chunky chunky strumming all the time. This is for Mr P.
