"I adore rambling. Visiting a region by car doesn't let you discover any hidden secrets or feel the atmosphere of the place. It is a lot more enjoyable on foot: we remember the smells and landscapes; and what makes regions diverse and so unique becomes more tangible.
Rambling lets you discover the region slowly. We may have lost our taste for patience and gradual discovery; we have lost certain reference points. Walking lets us retrieve those reference points: being in contact with the ground, watching the landscape slowly develop, smelling the landscapes that we cross, the odours of the seasons. At 4 km/h, life has a completely different taste...
Rambling to discover landscapes on foot is only part of the discovery. The other part consists of a formidable human adventure: being together to discover something. Roger Frison-Roche's books had a particular impact on me: the friendship that binds the characters is so beautiful. The philosophy that I have drawn from these books is that you never abandon a friend along the path. In my rambling club, we put this way of thinking into practice. Our association's motto is "we leave together, we share together and we stay together". It's something that I strive for.
That may also be the reason why our association "Haute Picardie Ramblers Association" was renamed "Highly shared friendship, rambling and pleasure".
