How far can your wife walk?

Recommended Posts

My missus took the huff after we walked from BKK Soi 4 to Soi 11 for a meal with friends.

100 meters she takes the motorbike. She says its due to soi dogs in my village.

Does your missus have problems putting one leg in front of the other?

Can walk - at least 10 km.

Willing to walk - perhaps  250 metres.

Willing to walk in the name of a Buddhist ritual - up to 2 km.

 

The most amazing thing was when she successfully climbed Ramkhamhaeng Mountain in Sukhothai all the way to the top albeit with incredible complaining.

 

It is best to structure your time together bearing this unwillingness to walk in mind.

The doctor told my wife to walk five kilometers per day, and after 12 years we have no idea where she is.

2km every morning with the dog, until the dog gave up..

Now she walks 3km on her own but then she eats like a horse so needs it :)

We used to do a five mile hike around Diamond Head in Hawaii fairly often and we have been on many hikes in National Parks.  One of the more strenuous ones was the twelve mile hike down and back to Lookout Point in the Grand Canyon.  Doing the downhill first and then having to hike out is a little different.

Sometimes wifey walks far but she's happier with door to door,  double parked,  triple parked never mind. :biggrin:

Thats funny! While I lived in the "sticks", I always took long walks. At first, the Thai's stopped, thinking my Motorbike had broken down, offering me a ride.


After a while, they realized that I am doing this on a voluntary basis. Conclusion: "Just another crazy Farang, but otherwise, he is an OK guy". 555


- Maybe this aversion by Thai's to walk and generally avoid unnecessary physical exertion may well date back to times when there was no farm machinery, only strenuous physical labor.


Well understood, a person performing hard labor must eat a lot. Remarkably, (these days)  Ladies working in the Entertainment Sector, must be convinced that their trade consists of nothing less than "hard labor". So they eat accordingly. AND IT SHOWS! (= Increasingly.)
Cheers.

Is there a market involved in this walking calculation?

 

Not necessarily a market, but a food outlet of some description for sure :)

If you ask your wife walking is for poor people in Thailand , and no good wife wants to be looked upon as poor in a country where money and status is  more important than family and friends.
