I felt ready to hear what Bayard had in store for me and was happy to know that there were only three challenges she wanted me to tackle over the next month to help me make friends. I wrote each challenge down and devoted at least one week to following through on them. The first thing Bayard advised me to do was take inventory of people I know and who they know.

Who are the people you sometimes see at the same parties and share mutual friends, but never have one-on-one conversations? Start there.
But before I did, I asked Bayard for advice on what to say. She advised me to send that person a message on Instagram asking them to get coffee.

Hiking, Walking or Rambling? Are you a hiker, a walker or a rambler? The UK seems to be the only place that has ramblers, whereas hiking seems a bit of a foreign activity. We put the three words to the test.

The Oxford Dictionary defines rambling as, "the activity of walking in the countryside for pleasure" which rather intriguingly suggests that walking is not always associated with enjoyment! Hiking is defined as, "a long walk or walking tour" which definitely has the ring of sodden boots, sore feet and a large drink in a warm pub associated with it.
I don't think I need to define walking, suffice it to say that it isn't necessarily the same thing as a sober pub crawl across the fells So we might conclude that hiking is the most strenuous way chah make new friends, walking is the middle ground, and rambling is the least exhausting.
