Allan Porter, Avalon Beach (Sydney) NSW Australia
Had a giggle at on sign that said 'TOELLE St'.
I know Alan was ALAN. But I'm Allan – frequently saying to people that it's OK if you say "To 'ell' with Allan".
John, Carbonear, Canada
It's been a pleasure watching Alan over the years walking all over the city suburbs.
It was heartbreaking when I read of his death. He sure was a national treasure.
Sonia Testa, Concord (Sydney) NSW Australia
I just found out about Alan's walks and I just want to say what a great time I had on your website.
I really enjoy the captions on the photos too.
Hans Stichter, Figtree (Wollongong) NSW Australia
It is wonderful to see that Alan's website is a "living" website despite Alan having "moved on" a number of years ago.
Always enjoyable to come back to it occasionally. Thank you.
Andrew Kim, Dundas Valley (Sydney) NSW
Thank you to Alan's family for sharing his adventures and stories. And thank you for opening our eyes to see what a beautiful and diverse city we live in.
Came across this site today and absolutely love
the photos and the witty remarks.
Thank you Alan for leaving such a wonderful gift to Sydney.
Scott LaPierre, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Just stumbled across this site preparing for a trip to Sydney. I am sorry I arrived after Alan's departure.
What a beautiful man. He is now one of my heroes.
We didn't know about the following July 2008 quote until January, 2010. It is from http://notreallyaustralian.blogspot.com/2008_07_01_archive.html (near the bottom of the page):
Walk Sydney Streets - The best website about Australia ever. This website made me laugh so hard. You have to go here. If I ever fall out of love with Australia, all I need to do is go to the site and I'll fall in love all over again.
Betsey Brister, Erskineville, Sydney
It's so good that your father's contribution to health and wellbeing has outlived him!
I love seeing these pictures.
Stephen Terrill, Allawah, NSW
Its absolutely inspirational to see somebody like yourself to promote the wholesome goodness as walking,
I am too a bit of a walk a holic, your a fantastically charming and funny man. Keep up the excellent work!!!.
Maureen Ramke, Atherton, Queensland
Such an inspirational person, such a wonderful smile, such a Great Australian.
I have only just discovered the site last night hence why at 4 am
I am writing this to congratulate you for still adding data for this lovely man.
Dave, Bondi, NSW
Love the site, guys! My house is in one of the shots! Keep up the good walk!
Otto Sticher, Dulwich Hill (Sydney), NSW
I regularly visited the site and was inspired by Alan. As with many others, no doubt, the thought was that if he is able to go walking at his age, I have no excuse to be sitting on my backside. His whimsy, sense of fun and obvious enjoyment of life made his site great fun and was a guide book to interesting places to visit myself. I am glad it is being maintained
Allan Porter, Avalon, NSW
Alan was certainly a individual whose
existence was an inspiration. Energy, a positive outlook,
humour not only
that he enjoyed but shared with others. I will remember him
as one of life's
Jenny Davis, Chelsea Heights, Victoria
He was a wonderful man and a real inspiration. He inspired
me to walk every day, I still do, and will think of Alan every
day on my walks.
Heidi Saidi, Cape Coral, Florida, USA
We live in a real retirement area and people are always looking for ways to improve their health. Your Dad has been a real inspiration to them. At our physical therapy office when people feel discouraged and don't want to help themselves we pull up your website and show them that a man 30 years their senior is out there pounding the pavement and they can do it too. He still is very inspirational.
Leanne, South Yarra, Victoria
I moved to Melbourne about a year ago and the walk sydney website is where I go when I feel homesick. It's so much better than the glamorous photos of Sydney's landmarks that you find on other websites. It's so much more real. And unlike the glossy travel websites, Alan's comes with a sense of humour. Alan leaves a wonderful legacy for Sydneysiders and walkers alike.
Alan was so cute and seemed like a genuine human being. Something you don't often see today. He is so inspirational that I cut his story out of the paper and have placed it somewhere where I can refer to it when I need a lift.
Laura Albulario, Special Reports Writer Nationwide News
I had the pleasure of meeting Alan last year while working as a reporter on the Mt Druitt-St Marys Standard and was absolutely amazed by what he had achieved in his walking mission. Aside from his unique accomplishments, he also struck me as a true gentleman with a positive approach to life that we can all take notes from.
Since my initial meeting with Alan, I have been regularly visiting the Walk Sydney Streets website to check up on his latest feats and delight in his quirky observations. I have no doubt that the legend of Alan Waddell will live on to become a colourful and treasured chapter in Sydney’s history.
Barden Ridge, NSW
He was truly an inspiration to all people, whatever age, and proved you are only as old or young as you feel.
Alan Wells, Farmborough Heights NSW
I didn't know Alan, but I felt that he was a personal friend. I looked forward to each email, and he was a great inspiration. I am only a spritely 61 year-old, but if I can have Alan's physical and mental approach to life as I get older, then there is plenty to look forward to.
Heidi, Patrick, Emily, and William Saidi, Cape Coral, Florida, USA
Alan was an inspiration to so many and he will be sadly missed. Though I'm not yet 40 years old I live in an area of Florida filled with retired people and his promotion of walking got a lot of people off of their chairs and out on the streets. When people would be sitting there feeling sorry for themselves, my 8 and 9 year old children would show them your website and they'd get up and about and back into life again. My family has enjoyed the website immensely and will continue to visit it, using it to motivate others and giggling at the captions attached with each photo.
Kathi, Harrisonburg, VA, USA
A gentleman who I truly wished I had had a chance to meet in person. An 'unforgettable' person, who brought joy to many across the world that he never met, and an inspiration, whose zest for life always brought a smile to me.
Robin and Anthony, Telopea, Sydney
He inspired us to get out and walk more and get to know Sydney suburbs better, even our own suburb of Telopea.
Rosalene, Whangarei, New Zealand
The web site will be his greatest tribute. No, on second thoughts: the healthy, older people he inspired are his tribute.
Irene, Sans Souci, Sydney
What a wonderful legacy Alan has left us all. Not many can claim to have made such a positive impact on the community. Or to have achieved it so late in life, too.
Ed, Lancaster PA, USA
If we do go on to another life, besides my family, your dad is at the top of my list for people to meet and know.
Paul Tatnell, Journalist, Cumberland Newspapers
Alan remains one of my most discussed news items. He is one story I will never forget.
Steve Woodmansee, Singapore
His site is exactly what the web should be, ordinary people telling amazing stories. I also liked the way Alan didn’t take himself too seriously and that shines through in the web site.
Shelli Bennett Albion Park,
My father in Kansas likes to see photos he calls "just
as things are" and your site fills the bill perfectly.
Not to mention the fact you are quite a character and an inspiration!
Michael Hynes, Northridge,
Of all the marvels of the internet, I think yours is the most
personal, the most intriguing. It's like a little vacation
every time I click on your link.
Heidie, Cape Coral, Florida,
We can't get enough of your website!
Geoff Irons, Gold Coast,
One of the best sites I've ever seen - so positive, interesting
and easy to use. Yesterday my 22-year-old daughter and 13-year-old
son spent time trolling through the site with me, and they
Bev, Cabarita, NSW, Australia
I love your site and I am thrilled that so many people from
across the world get to see how funny and brilliant our gorgeous
city is, with all its quirks.
The very best thing about Alan's site is his humorous take
on the everyday, ordinary things he passes by (and his understated
wit when faced with not-so-ordinary things). If you are unfamiliar
with Sydney, or only have a short time to browse, I suggest
you check out the Secrets and Surprises pages. Every time
I read them, I end up laughing out loud (even at things I've
read numerous times before)!
A warning - his trivia questions are TOUGH!
Coral, Stanmore, Australia
You are the most inspiring person I have seen on TV for a
long time. What a great idea you have given to us all. Now
you have influenced me to get up and go exploring this wonderful
city of ours.
Gloria, Victoria, Canada
When I’m feeling down, I go to your Web site, look at
the photos of sunny Sydney streets, read the funny captions,
and my mood immediately improves
Dr Wong, Sydney, NSW, Australia
You are amazing. I will recommend your site to all my patients
- to inspire them to walk more.
Tanya, Tasmania, Australia
My mother only died weeks ago and I so wish she had seen your
story long ago and been inspired to walk.
Janett, 17, NSW, Australia
You have inspired me to do something with my life. I now appreciate
what a gift it is to be fit and healthy and I am not going
to waste that anymore. You have gotten me off the coach and
into the world.
When I'm feeling a little lazy, I always say, "If Mr
Waddell can do it, I can do it, too". Then, I just get
up and walk. Thank you, sir, you are an inspiration.
I am 73 and do not do much walking (medical reasons) but you
inspired me to try a bit harder.
You have inspired me and most importantly my parents (who
are over 60) to get out.
Joanne Traeger, FM103.2, Seven Hills, NSW, Australia
Since your visit I have been walking almost every day. Thanks
so much for your encouragement and inspiration.
You are an inspiration to me, I am only 65 and will start
Jillian Cordeiro, Hong Kong
You are a true inspiration to those of us who sit in front
of a computer the whole day.

Lorna, Canberra ACT
It is really good to visit your fantastic website again. Can't
believe how much it has grown and expanded. You're truly a
champion. I just love looking at your photos and reading the
captions. Great sense of humour! You've given many people
around the world joy and cheer through your optimistic perspective
McHugh family, Rooty Hill,
Thank you for such a great website. After seeing you
on TV shows and reading about you in magazines I just had
to look up your site. My sons aged 12 and 15 also enjoyed
about an hour looking at your great photos. You certainly
live life to the full and are an inspiration to both young
Seamus O'Leary, Queensland,
I teach at a middle school in Queensland. What a refreshing
website. I can actually show the kids at school what a well
planned, fun, interesting and inspiring website looks like.
I love your work. Well done.
Lillian, Normanhurst, Australia
It was a delight to stumble on to your website. You are truly
a gem! I would love to be as healthy, energetic, and inspirational
as you are as of tomorrow, let alone when I get to your age!
Cindy, British Columbia,
Please accept my heartfelt encouragement to continue your
Elizabeth, Sydney, NSW, Australia
What a wonderful webpage. You have inspired me to explore
more of my city. I am a town planner, so your discoveries
are eye-opening and truly inspiring. I’m glad you appreciate
the contribution of the everyday elements of our environment
– letterboxes, fences for example.
Christine, Ipswich, Queensland, Australia
Every now and then I erupt into gales of laughter at the comments
you have put beside the photos.
Mark, Glebe, NSW, Australia
You’re an absolute inspiration! I’ve
been walking around your site, amazed, delighted, as well
as giggling like a schoolgirl.
Keep it up, you champion. I think you’re a legend.
Nancy, Ontario, Canada
What a great site. It is so imaginative and lots of fun..
Mr Waddell, you are an amazing man.
Brigitte von Bulow, Miami, Florida, USA
Your walking and website, the photos and your smile, all of
these are a fantastic Australian spirited example of true
beauty. Thank you for your stunning achievement and goal.
Any chance to publish these in a Waddell book? After all,
you are an icon already!
Louise, London, England
I think you're absolutely fabulous!! Not to mention putting
most people a fifth of your age to shame. I submitted your
site to www.boingboing.net, one of the most read blogs on
the internet, and you feature on there this morning.
Leonardo (25) , Argentina
I have just found you page. I want to give you my best wishes,
and once you finish with Sydney you are invited to walk in
Chris, Toronto, Canada
I stumbled upon your site today and I just had to send you
an email. What seems like something so simple is really so
amazing, and doing what you do has brought inspiration and
good feelings to so many people. Your pictures and commentaries
are great. You've done something positive and I sincerely
thank you for it.
Justin, Sydney, NSW, Australia
I look forward to enjoying the rest of your website, it looks
fantastic. However I might need to do so at home because the
laughter your website induces is drawing attention to me at
Graeme, St Helens, England
What an inspiration you are! Been to Sydney twice and looking
at your pictures makes me feel like I am in your wonderful
city. Keep walking and clicking mate ! Great web site, love
Tom, Mosman, NSW, Australia
My wife and I walk the same route with our dog every evening
after work. Being inspired by you, we have already started
to "find new routes".
Karen, Launceston, Tasmania, Australia
I work in a hospital and try to get people up and walking
so I might have to use you.
Emma, Ryde, NSW, Australia
I absolutely love the site, the pictures are fantastic and
the comments keep making me laugh out loud! I am seeing some
wonderful parts of Sydney that I didn't know existed.
David, Isle of Lewis, Scotland
Fantastic site, truly inspirational. Walk on.!
Very best regards,
Sarah M, Allawah, NSW, Australia
I have spent some more time looking through your site
(I'm not finished yet)
and I am so charmed. I have passed the link onto many friends
who have also
enjoyed your site. It's an intriguing combination of photo-diary,
tour guide and an insight into a remarkable man.
Oliverio, San Salvador,
Let me congratulate you for being an example of real
citizenship and for sharing with the rest of the world the
beauty of your country.
Lorraine Anderson, Wanganui, New Zealand
Gosh I think you are just absolutely marvellous - your website
is beautiful !
Alan (dude!) You are the coolest old fella I have ever seen.
Those photos of you walking around Sydney just melt my heart.
Love ‘em to bits. Keep on rocking mate.
Barbara Bernstein, Miami, Florida
Your website is one of the most ambitious and beautiful ones
I have ever visited. I feel as if I have taken a beautiful
tour of your lovely country.
Jane Buckle, Brisbane, QLD
I am 12 years old. It's great to see what you are doing! I
heard about your story on 'Today Tonight' as I flicked the
through the channels on television. I just had to stop to
hear your story. I am just stunned by how much you have done,
I am 13 years old. I'm just writing to say congratulations.
I'm pretty sure that a lot of people out there are proud of
you and I'm sure your family members and friends are too.
Also its pretty cool how you know how to work a computer,
my mum doesn't even know how to turn one on. I hope you have
a long, happy and old life and good luck. (And later:) I went
and told my mum that you had wrote back to me and she's like,
' Oh, wow really! ', it was pretty cool.
Kerry K, Albany Creek,
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
I find your site such an interesting place. I go to it daily.
I go over and over the photos, because they are so beautiful
and I tell so many people about them. It's just like a History
Max Moffatt, Melbourne,
I was very impressed to see you walk the streets of Sydney
on Today Tonight this evening and I think you are a great
inspiration to many elderly people of Australia, not saying
your old! As said on TV, you are 90 years young! I am 14 years
old and I find it a chore just to walk my dog!
Sue McCosker, Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia
I am inspired by your story and your willingness to share
it with the world. The photos of the "real" Sydney
are fabulous and I love you and your family's sense of humour.
I have put your website on my favourites and will be looking
forward to continue "walking" Sydney with you!
Bomaderry, New South Wales, Australia
I love Sydney, but don't ever have the chance to discover
all the places you have discovered. Now I can live vicariously
through you, as there are hours and hours of enjoyment to
be had through your website. Love your sense of humour, too!
Amy Hobbs, Devonport,
I just saw you on Today Tonight, and I must say being an active
person myself I am pleased to see that people of all ages
can keep fit and healthy! Good on ya Al, keep up the good
Alicia and Zia, Gold Coast,
My 12-year-old daughter and I read your story today in The
Sydney Morning Herald (online version) and have spent the
last hour enjoying your website. You are a true inspiration,
not to mention a very funny person! We wish you more wonderful
walks and will visit your website to keep up you with you
the only way we can. Tomorrow we're getting up at 6am and
walking at least one street!
Steve Woodmansee, Penang,
I discovered your site for the first time today and I just
had to tell you how wonderful I think it is. The photos are
great and the story is told with a great sense of humour and
an eye for the unusual. It is really good to see a site with
the real Sydney, not just the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
This is what the internet should be about … people telling
interesting stories to the whole world!
Ben Leeson, Waverton, New South Wales, Australia
Congratulations on being such a great ambassador for Sydney
and Australia. I noticed many of your site's visitors are
from overseas. No doubt, if they visit they'll be checking
out some of the locations featured. That's great, because
they'll get off the tourist trail and see the real Sydney.
You set a great example for people of all ages.
Alana Jonze, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Dood! You are totally rocking! I saw you on the TV and was
thrilled to hear your story. You are an ace! Your website
is totally cool. I am going to send your web address to my
friends in San Francisco.
Michael DeFries, Picnic Point, New South Wales, Australia
I came across your site from the article in The Sydney
Morning Herald. You are an absolute legend. You've given an
incredibly interesting view of my home city of Sydney with
the photos and witty commentary. I'm 28 years old and have
always enjoyed going for a wander around my local suburb but
will definitely be getting around to different areas now.
Your story is most certainly an inspiration to anyone to just
get out there whenever they can and go for a walk. I think
you've done more than your share to inspire people to change
[Australia's overweight problem].
Dennis Hicks, Townsville. Queensland, Australia
G'day Alan. You, sir, are a credit to us all. Not only are
you the most active 90-year-young human I have seen in my
36 years but also the most mentally astute. If I get to 50
and have half the energy and brain as you I will be a content
man! Well done, mate. It's an honour to know you're there.
Jodi Dickson, Chipping Norton, New South Wales, Australia
I came across your website by accident - and I am so
glad I did. My grandfather, an avid walker, used to say that
since cars became cheap people have missed out on things that
you can only catch on a walk, like the smell of concrete that
has just been hosed at sundown on a hot summer's day, the
sound of children laughing and the friendly smile of a stranger
as you appreciate their garden - all things that used to make
his day. I miss him terribly and had forgotten our footpath
talks, as we used to call them. Your website brought those
wonderful memories back, so thank you. I have two children
of my own that I don't do nearly enough walking with, but
I am going to visit suburbs you have posted and show them
some of your surprises and secrets that I would not have known
Edsy, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Dood, I was just watching Today Tonight and, man, you are
doing so well. So do not give up. By the way, I am nine and
I do not really like old people. But, dood, you are fully
sick. Make that mad.
Alyshia Peterson, Muswellbrook, New South Wales, Australia
I am 25 yrs old. I saw you on Today Tonight last night. I
really enjoyed the interview and I think you are marvellous!
I worked in a nursing home. I love the elderly and I enjoyed
every moment working with them. You see the best and the worst
of people. I saw a lot give up because they thought they were
old and past it. I hope they all saw you because you are an
inspiration! You are proof that you are only as old as you
let yourself feel and that we hold ourselves back.
Robert Yee, Drummoyne,
New South Wales, Australia
Alan (dude!), you are the coolest old fella I have ever seen.
Those photos of you walking around Sydney just melt my heart.
Love 'em to bits. Keep on rocking, mate.
Coral Erber, Sydney,
New South Wales, Australia
Dear Alan. I think you are the most inspiring person I have
seen on T.V for a long time. What a great idea you have given
to us all. You have influenced me to get up and go exploring
this wonderful city of ours.
Bob T, Cleveland, Ohio,
I enjoyed your picture tour around Sydney very, very much.
I was delighted by the commentary accompanying each picture,
it was very humorous. The pictures were very clear and with
excellent color. All the pictures were very interesting and
depicted unique locations. If I ever get a camera I will take
pictures of this area and post them on a blog. Of course,
I got this idea from your wonderful website. Congratulations
on your tour of Sydney at age 89. My regards to you at the
beauty and creativity of your website.
Irene C, Sans Souci, New
South Wales, Australia
I have been enjoying a stroll through your site and am sending
the url to friends overseas. I’d be delighted to receive
notification of any additions to this excellent and fun site.
Shirley, Midland, Texas,
I can imagine seeing this story in Reader’s Digest.
It could be very inspiring to the multitudes of people who
do very little exercise and complain about even that. It would
be a much better story than the ones we are seeing and reading
in the media each day. ... Congratulations on completing your
90th suburb. No tour guide could give us a better taste of
Sydney. ... Congratulations to you and the photographer! What
a goal to see the ordinary and mundane in an exotic way. I
am bookmarking your site for any day, not just the terrible
ones. Thanks to both of you for your inspiration of the mind
Ed Lada, Lancaster, Pennsylvania,
I'm feeling great. I believe that your web site has helped
how I feel. Every time I leave your site I am in a better
mood than when I arrived. I've been telling many people about
you …Alan, meeting you on the internet is probably the
best thing that has happened to me via the computer and I’ve
been online for many years now. You must be getting hundreds
if not thousands of emails now from all over the world, but
you take time to answer my emails and call me a friend. Thank
Doug Schneider, Valley Park, Missouri, USA
I really enjoyed your website, and find your goals inspiring.
Keep up the good work.
Fred Vines, Bawley Point,
New South Wales, Australia
As an 80-year-old daily beach walker I admire your project
of keeping fit and showing the world the beauties of Sydney.
Good luck. A very worthwhile website.
John Gavin, Fort Myers,
I want to say what a wonderful website you have. It's
a fantastic introduction to Sydney and Australia. I definitely
want to visit. It would be nice if people in other touristy
places would do a website similar to yours. I’ll be
checking back to see what new discoveries you’ve made.
Bobbie Noah, Conyers, Georgia,
What a delightful website! I had great fun walking around
with Alan. The "Garden on top of the house” and
the “Emma Chisett house” are just two of my favourites.
Beautiful pictures, and Go Alan!
Jean, Livingston, Montana,
I found your site most interesting and entertaining.
Connie Hayes, Emporia, Kansas, USA
What a great idea! I am enjoying the pictures and have saved
the site to favorites. Keep up the great fun, and enjoy your
beautiful walks. Thanks for sharing the pictures for us to
Mark, Perris, California, USA
What a fun site you all have.
Josu, Bilbao, Spain
I've downloaded one photo (Tamarama Bay) for my work computer's
screen background. Thanks for your photos and keep walking
& taking nice photos.
Ken, Kennewick, Washington, USA
Great photos and a remarkable “young” man
Tim and Jennifer Preston, Jacksonville, Florida, USA
Great idea for a website! Thanks for letting us see all the
John Yoda, Albion, California, USA
Absolutely great! Keep it up!
Sandy Boyd, Nederland, Texas, USA
Gosh, you are fascinating for someone almost 30 years older
Ed, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA
What a great way to get your exercise. And thanks for sharing
your photos and journey with us. Hope I’ll be able to
get as much walking done when I’m 89. Right now I’m
just a kid of 70. I ride a stationery bike, not a fraction
as interesting as your exercise plan!
Paul Becker, St Louis,
Keep going, man, I hope you live to be 190! What great scenery,
I really have to visit sometime.
Steve Culshaw, Reading, UK
Excellent site, an inspiration to us all.
Catherine Watkins, White Rock, British Columbia, Canada
Alan, you are amazing!!! You are an inspiration to all of
us!!! What a wonderful treat to see your pictures. Although
I think I live in the most beautiful part of the world, your
pictures show us a close second.
Helen, Wisconsin, USA
I had no idea that Australia was so beautiful. Your pictures
make me want to visit there.
Margaret and Malcolm Andrade, Burlington, Ontario, Canada
Keep up the good work and may God bless your efforts.
Kathi, Virginia, USA
What a wonderful site! Thanks so much for sharing this with
all of us. This is what the internet is all about –
bringing us closer together. I may never get to Sydney, but
you’ve made it possible for me to really see it.
Charles Wilson, UK
If a bald 90-year-old can do it, so can I!
Dr Petr Prikryl, Prague,
How admirable is your idea. Thank you for giving me the possibility
to walk through Sydney with its secrets and surprises.
Dorothy Keller, Lake Pak, Georgia, USA
I very thoroughly enjoyed the visit to your webpage. I will
be back for followup visits. I am disabled, and can hardly
walk, even using a cane. I am 54 years young. Since I cannot
walk over about 20 feet before having to rest, I placed the
sights on your journey, throughout your town, in my mind,
and imagined I could walk along with you. Awesome! I admire
you for the determination you have. Thank you for sharing
this wonderful adventure with the rest of the world.
Judy, Garland, Texas, USA
Visiting your website brought a smile to my face!
Marie Mosher, Long Island, New York USA
I thoroughly enjoyed all your pictures. Bless you! What an
encouragement for other seniors. Keep the pics coming.
David and Phyllis, Lacombe, Louisiana, USA
To see the city in your pictures was a joy. Thanks so much,
and keep on stepping!
Patricia Duke, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA
Everything about this website is brilliant, from the fascinating
photos to the witty commentary, and, most especially, its
handsome leading man. Good job to all involved, and you can
be very proud of your efforts! In fact, gentlemen, dare I
say it, I could see a documentary movie coming out of this!
Thank you all from a new fan.
Sandra, Denver, Colorado, USA
You show us a beautiful city where actual people live
in actual neighbourhoods and houses. My perception of Australia
was previously the opera house and the bridge with fireworks,
and, of course, the outback and the big rock where the dingo
ate the baby.
John, Dallas, Texas, USA
You should be congratulated on the inspiration you have
provided to couch potatoes all over the world. Your efforts
have made me get up from this desk to go for a nice long walk.
Thanks so much for the inspiration.
Stephen, Lewisville, Texas,
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the pictures and
especially the commentary. I am only 65. I'm not proud to
say that I haven't even walked my own neighbourhood yet. I
think that it's time to change things. Thanks for the pleasurable
experience and keep up the great work.
Jackie, Bishop, California,
What a joy your site is. I've only just started to explore
it but I'm already feeling that I'm getting to know your city.
Thank you for your great site and your inspiring efforts and
Richard, Lodi, California,
I've really enjoyed exploring your web site. So many
interesting and beautiful places to see.
Curtis, Edmonton, Alberta,
Thank you for the tour of Sydney! It is great to see some
of the real Sydney. Congratulations on your accomplishments
Mr. Waddell, you are an inspiration!
Matthew D, Brisbane Queensland,
I'm very impressed with the web page - some of the photos
are just fantastic. Whoever set it up has done a very good
job. I reckon I could say I've walked every street in my suburb.
Somehow I feel that is slightly less significant.
