This is what walking on air is supposed to look like!
This is ARoS in Aarhus, Denmark so it is probably true when they say the Danes are the happiest people in the world; skipping through life on rainbow walkways, heads in the clouds!
Walking on Air.
But in life when you’re walking on air it’s usually because your path is blocked by seemingly unsurmountable problems. Hopefully the path you construct will not be as rickety as this one as this walkway to Cat Ba Beach in Vietnam (but it did still get us to our destination!)
In the Irish Republic walking in the air leads you straight to the Guinness Storehouse! Hmmm, the Irish should be pretty happy too!
Walking on Water (or Unstable Ground).
Bamboo walkway across the marshy fields, seen on our bike trip around Inle Lake in Myanmar.
The narrow boardwalk through the village on the Penang Jetty (Malaysia). A path of stepping stones through a stagnant green pond in Portugal.
Obstacles in the Path.
Sometimes there are ways to get around obstacles, or up and over; sometimes there’s a gate that allows you through if you can just figure out how to open it. (Ladybower Reservoir in the Peak District of England.)This trail is cut through the mountain at Utah’s Timpanogos Caves National Park, USA.
Help Along the Way.
Free walking sticks for Ucluelet’s Wild Pacific Trail on Vancouver Island, Canada.Singapore’s Botanical Gardens not only provide a pathway above it all, it gives out free raincoats if you accidentally get caught in a monsoon.Stands with drinking water were placed all along the trail on our walk around Inle Lake.

Free raincoats and walking sticks — how fun is that?! Wonderful response Elisabeth!
I was inspired by your post showing how the theme ‘path’ led to all sorts of thoughts on the directions and obstacles in the path of life.
Great series of paths! I would love to walk them all – that bamboo walkway looks inviting. I love that you have chosen some obstacle solutions.
that bamboo walkway was very wobbly and a little tricky; if you weren’t sure-footed you could easily fall into the swamp!
I can understand that. But good for training balance and my feet!.
Singapore’s national garden looks like fun but my favourite photo the cave pathway Utah
If you like the path carved through the mountain you would have loved the caves!
Indeed I was a tourist guide at the C
When I was a student
Ah, that explains it – what a wonderful place to work as a student!
such wonderful messages here with your paths – I lke the help one and most of all:
up and over
up and over
Have you just met with an obstacle and managed to get up and over it with a little help?
yes – sure have
