Typically when someone says they’re going to “take a walk,” it means usually walking a few blocks and back, not across the country. Well, Chinese immigrant, Catherine Li, had some extra time on her hands and decided to walk from San Francisco to New York City.
It’s been seven months since she began her journey and with the help of Google maps, her savings account, and strangers who have offered her their couches and financial aid, she is determined to make it to the Empire State. Li says, “I just felt like walking. I just decided to click over to living in the actual moment instead of inventing all these fantastic fantasies for the future.” Not a bad attitude to have in these tough times.
