Well, hiking might be an overstatement, but my hubby and I went for a walk in the area, and then we ended the walk at the mall, to do some errands. Since my husband is not Scandinavian, he is still a stranger to walking, for no other purpose than just walking, like we do here. When I suggest we go (as in walk) somewhere, he always asks “Why? We have a perfectly fine car”.
When I lived in the US, and was out for a walk, people would stop their cars and ask if my car had broken down. They always seemed so surprised when they understood that I was walking of my own free will 🙂 Those funny cultural differences 🙂
