Want Inspiration? In Sydney Nsw you will find it


Want some inspiration to get up and live life? Go to WalkSydneyStreets where 92yr old Alan Waddell will give it to you in street loads. S ee the real Sydney Australia while your there.

In December 2002, this idea of walking every street was expanded to include neighbouring suburbs and so his odyssey began.
