THE ORIGINS OF WALKABOUT IN SAN DIEGO

Our organization derives its name from an Australian aborigine ritual, called a walkabout, in which members of the community venture out to live off the land and meet their environment on its own terms. That is the spirit of what our walks are all about. We encounter and embrace our urban, suburban and rural environments on their own terms and open ourselves up to uncovering the beauty and essence of a neighborhood while we enjoy healthy exercise and convivial socializing. That’s the “Walkabout” part. The “International” component reflects the opportunity to travel for customized, behind-the-scenes walking tours of countries such as the UK, Switzerland, France, Canada, Mexico and Japan. Walkabout International began as a result of people, recently moved to San Diego, who wished to discover the tucked-away nooks and crannies as well as the well-known picturesque places in the environs of San Diego; to walk just for the health of it in the evening after work – and to meet others with similar interests afoo who would share their favorite pathways.
