Verification notes, Walking everywhere

Slì. Hope that’s the right expression, Irish. I’ve just been to Stockholm, Sweden, to cover a pump company. They have laid out (according to the Irish Slì) several walking trails about 10 km long. These are laid out in attractive parts of the city to encourage people to take long walks and preserve cardiac fitness.

I have not yet come across conscious use of design principles to enable people to walk, it seems that city planning more encourages use of the motor car.
End of verification notes, Walking everywhere.
