My Big Geneva, the Walks of Pan.

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s easy to forget the simple pleasures that lie just beyond our doorstep. Walking: an activity as simple as a cat’s leap, yet with benefits worthy of a superhero in sneakers. Often underestimated in our speed- and efficiency-focused society, it is one of the simplest and most accessible forms of physical exercise.


Albert Einstein’s Walking

It is well known that Albert Einstein used to take daily walks to stimulate his thinking. It is even said that he formulated part of his theory of relativity while walking in a park. This habit of walking to foster creativity and problem-solving is often cited as a practice by many thinkers and writers.


Thoreau’s Walking

The famous writer and philosopher Henry David Thoreau was a fervent advocate of walking. He even wrote an essay entitled “Walking,” in which he described the benefits of walking for the mind and body, as well as its deep connection with nature. For Thoreau, walking was much more than just physical exercise; it was a spiritual experience.


Walking on the Moon

During the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the surface of the moon for the first time in human history. Their historic walk captivated millions of people worldwide and symbolized the incredible achievements of science and technology.
