When you become a consistent walker, some weeks are better than others. Wk #11 for the Walking Australia team was a week to remember for two reasons. First, we walked 238 miles, our biggest miles of walking in a week in Australia. Second, we walked through Melbourne, one of the cities we looked forward to on the walk because it is a special city.
Wikipedia says it is special because it “is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of Victoria, and the second-most populous city in Australia and Oceania. The name ‘Melbourne’ covers an urban agglomeration spanning 9,900 km2 (3,800 sq mi), which comprises the broader metropolitan area, as well as being the common name for its city centre. The metropolis is located on the large natural bay of Port Phillip and expands into the hinterlands towards the Dandenong and Macedon mountain ranges, Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley. Melbourne consists of 31 municipalities. It has a population of 4,641,636 as of 2016, and its inhabitants are called Melburnians.”
That is fantastic information about one of the highlights of our walk. We want to thank Joshua Hibbert on unsplash.com for the picture of Melbourne. Since this is a walk online, it is great for our team to actually see some of the beauty of this great city. Thank you, Joshua, for making that possible.
I hope all of you following us are consistently walking. Please write and tell us of a week to remember that you have had in walking. I just hope it was a great one like the one we have had in Wk #11..
We are making our way closer to Sydney, our final destination for our Walking Australia team. We think we are four or five weeks away. However, with some more weeks like this one, we’ll be there sooner.
In fact, I invite any of you following our walk, to join the team and help us get to Sydney sooner. It’s easy to join our team. Record the miles you walk from Sunday to Saturday and enter your name and miles on LEAVE A REPLY and you are on our team. We’d love to have you join us soon, because arriving in Sydney will be a week to remember.
Hoping you join our walking team to be a part of a week to remember,
