In 2012 Stavanger municipality and Stavanger Tourist Organisation launched a unique public health project called “52 everyday trips”. Every week a new walk, with a detailed map, was presented in the newspaper.
The idea was to present the public for well marked routes right outside their own houses, making everyday activity an easier task.
The 52 walks varies in length from 7 -11,5 km (5-7 miles)
me, my mother & my sister Anne
My mother & father walked all the routes last year, this year she is doing them again with my sister and me. Every Monday afternoon we set out for a new hike. Today we walked trip no. 5; Marieroturen – which is 9,6 km (ca. 5 miles) long, it took us exactly 2h.
“52 everyday trips” is a great project – I have lived in the municipality of Stavanger for 46 years, but still there are lots of places to discover, and re-discover. And of course I have to admit; these mini-hikes are also a fabulous opportunity to spend some genuine quality time with my sister & mother. No men, no kids, no dogs – just the three of us walking & talking.
