Steps on Vacation


Cornwall

I took 52,202 steps during 10 days (5,220 average, 7,982 max). Cornwall is a ceremonial county in South West England, bordered to the north and west by the Celtic Sea, to the south by the English Channel, and to the east by Devon. Cornwall is the westernmost part of the South West Peninsula of the island of Great Britain. The area is noted for its wild moorland landscapes, its long and varied coastline, its attractive villages, and its very mild climate. (Wikipedia)

Crete

I took 59,269 steps during 11 days (5,388 average, 8,646 max). Crete is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, the 88th largest island in the world and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Crete forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece, while retaining its own local cultural traits. It was once the centre of the Minoan civilisation (c. 2700–1420 BC), which is the earliest known civilisation in Europe. (Wikipedia)

Porto

I took 89,513 steps during 8 days (11,189 average, 17,085 max). Porto is the second-largest city in Portugal. Located along the Douro River estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centres, and its historical core was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. Its settlement dates back many centuries, when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. Its Celtic-Latin name, Portus Cale, has been referred to as the origin of the name "Portugal". (Wikipedia)

Andalusia

I took 126,603 steps during 11 days (11,509 average, 18,340 max). Andalusia is an autonomous community in southern Spain. The region has a rich culture and a strong identity. Many cultural phenomena that are seen internationally as distinctively Spanish are largely or entirely Andalusian in origin. These include flamenco and, to a lesser extent, bullfighting and Hispano-Moorish architectural styles, both of which are also prevalent in other regions of Spain. (Wikipedia)

Highlands

I took 101,917 steps during 11 days (9,265 average, 13,837 max). The Highlands is a historic region of Scotland. The area is sparsely populated, with many mountain ranges dominating the region, and includes the highest mountain in the British Isles, Ben Nevis. Before the 19th century the Highlands was home to a much larger population, but the natural increase in population was exceeded by emigration and migration to the industrial cities of Scotland and England.

Lisbon

I took 104,340 steps during 10 days (10,434 average, 16,481 max). Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal. Julius Caesar made it a municipium called Felicitas Julia, adding to the name Olissipo. Ruled by a series of Germanic tribes from the 5th century, it was captured by the Moors in the 8th century. In 1147, the Crusaders under Afonso Henriques reconquered the city and since then it has been a major political, economic and cultural center of Portugal. (Wikipedia)

Lisbon

Shorter trips

I took 154,216 steps during 12 days (12,851 average, 18,821 max) on shorter city trips. Berlin is the capital and largest city of Germany, and a world city of culture, politics, media and science. The city is well known for its festivals, diverse architecture, nightlife and contemporary art (Wikipedia). Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark. Being the Danish city with the youngest demographics, Aarhus is also the second fastest growing Danish city (Wikipedia).
