Event:
To saunter is to wander slowly.

Perhaps you prefer to meander or ramble. Regardless, on June 19th you can choose your go-slow mode of choice because it is World Sauntering Day.

Really.

World Sauntering day
Meander with a friend on World Sauntering Day


World Sauntering Day started in the 1970s as a response to the growing popularity of jogging. Saunterers prefer to go slow, to smell the roses rather than the sweat pants. I like this line of reasoning.

So perhaps on World Sauntering Day you might like to grab your dog or a good friend, and take it slow. Saunter through the office and tip your hat to people. Saunter around uni. Saunter the streets.

Make a YouTube video of yourself sauntering like this lad has done. Twitter about sauntering #saunteringday.

Enjoy your happy slow walk, and don't forget to smell the roses.
