They should not walk a lot.

I would need more context. It can be: "They should not walk a lot (or too much)" or "They probably do not go too far".

The other: "But why is this train trip interesting?"
Good luck,

"they don't walk much (a lot)"

If it's an ironic comment then: "they don't walk much (a lot)" (for they're always taking the train instead). The other sentence:
"But why is this train journey so interesting?"
cheers :-)

    almost everyday usage...

"They must not walk a lot" or "They must not do a lot of walking"

In the ironic sense, rather than as a prescription (indicating that they have been instructed not to walk a lot).

Iit's not clear whether "Pero" is part of the text of your question, or your own word. In the latter case, the question would read in English simply "Why is this train trip so interesting?"

Cheers, HC
