Journalist documenting a walk from Washington, D.C. to New York

American veteran journalist Neil King was interested in experiencing a new side of the United States and set out on a slow stroll all the way from Washington D.C. to New York.

He has been documenting his progress on Twitter and plans to continue doing so until he reaches his destination. He’s been live-tweeting information about historical sites, interviewing interesting characters he meets on his journey and learning about his country. Thousands of Twitter users are following his walk through and he says he plans to write a book about the experience eventually.
