Our mission is to share our vegetarian, nomadic lifestyle with you and to inspire you to explore the world by foot.
Nomadic. Vegetarian. Hiker. Let’s adventure together.
Avid adventurer. Global circumnavigator. Walking advocate.
Chris Englert, the Walking Traveler, has visited over 60 countries and all 50 states. Usually traveling with her teen daughter and husband, yet sometimes by herself as a solo traveler, she uncovers neighborhood walks, urban hikes, and pescatarian/vegetarian eats that other guide books miss. Be sure to read her fun adventures in her books:

Author: Travel Magic Postcards, Vignettes from the Walking Traveler
Contributing Author: The High Line Canal Guide
Chris is also Denver’s Urban Hiker, and appears in social media under @denverbyfoot.

From 71 mile trails to 1-mile neighborhood walks, find the urban hiking content at DenverByFoot.com.
A fun and engaging speaker, Chris speaks about using walking as a tool to find peace, connection, and mental clarity. Through fun stories of her adventures around the world by foot, she weaves together a motivating story of how walking can open up doors of creativity and help anyone break out of their comfort zones into their lives.
