Inspiring walking - putting Van Gogh Walk on the map

Some nice developments to build on the theme to encourage walking:

Kristine Groenhart on the right
  • Kristine Groenhart is writing a book about Van Gogh's London: a travel guide to explore the routes he took, the sights he saw, and the paintings he wondered at and wrote about. Kristine says she was inspired to write this book after she watched the drama-documentary "Painted with Words", with Benedict Cumberbatch as Van Gogh enjoying his walks through the city and out to the countryside, and visiting London's art exhibitions and galleries. Kristine's book will be published in Dutch to start with.
