Travel Photo Thursday — September 19, 2013 — These Feet Were Made to Travel

Posted by on Sep 19, 2013 in Bali, Destinations, Korea, Thailand, Travel Photo Thursday | 25 comments

Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. I woke up this morning to the quietest day of the year. There are no car doors slamming, and no people screaming in the street. Today is Chuseok, Korean Thanksgiving. At least for a few hours, everything is closed and all is quiet on the Korean front; BLISS! Since the first of September, I’ve been walking everyday, and it’s made me realize (once again) just how awesome our feet are, and how much we rely on them in our travels. Here are a few of my “traveling feet” shots!

Sandals in the snow…taken at Mount Baker this past summer. The snow at the top provided relief for our  traveling feet from the 30 degree heat below…

  1. This is such a clever and fun post. I never would have thought of focusing on feet during our travels but such a great idea. Love those Bali dancing feet. Hope you enjoy the calmness of Korean Thanksgiving. Thanks to you I learned of another culture celebrating it.

    • Thanks, Mary. Yeah, I think we forget how important our feet are for traveling, and how often we observe them in out travels (like the dancers). Chuseok has been great!

  2. Fun theme and great photos. Love the photo of the dancers. Oh, and I like your shoes. 🙂

    • Hi Cathy…thanks! I love my Nikes. I bought them when I was in Canada in 2011. Bought 1 pair at regular price and got second pair for $1.00…sweet deal!

  3. Aww, what a cute theme for a blog post! Love these, specially the colorful ones and the one of the little feet at the beach 🙂

    • Haha Maria…it’s been a long time since someone called my feet “little”! 🙂

  4. Loved the theme of your photos for this week. Very cute and original.

    • Thanks Tonya! Using my brain to come up with something a bit original 🙂

  5. Great idea! I love walking, I walk a lot not only when I’m traveling… some of my best ideas come to me when I take a long walk (^_^)
    Love the dancers photo!

    • I agree! For me, walking is the best way to get to know a new (or old) destination.

  6. Great post! I had to laugh that you and I both seemed to have ‘feet’ on the mind when doing this week’s posts. Great minds. . .what can I say?

  7. The second picture is my favourite. I love the colours. I take pictures of might feet at different destinations all the time.

  8. Great idea for a post, Nancie! We do so much with our feet but we hardly ever think about them until something happens.

    Walking, running, squatting, standing, dancing feet are all I’ve been thinking about since I fractured my ankle in April. I can’t wait to get back to normal so I can run, walk faster, and especially go up and down steps with ease.

    Yesterday, I looked the notes I made while I was recovering from surgery and decided it was time to write a post about my experience but I got so overwhelmed after I read through my journal, I set it aside for another day.

    Thanks for the reminder of how important our feet are. It also reminded me that I need to get a reflexology treatment!

    • Hi Marcia…Sorry to hear about your ankle. I hope you are back up running/walking soon. I broke my leg when I was 11, and I STILL remember that ordeal.

      • Thanks, Nancie! I’m walking but it’ll be a little while before I can run.
        Since my accident, I’ve met and heard about so many people who’ve broken their ankles and they all say they remember it. Very interesting.

  9. What a great idea for post! Very fun.

    My feet were killing me in Toronto – a reminder of how blessed I am to be able to get around most of the time without even thinking about it.

    • Hi Cindy, I know what your saying. I’ve been walking every day since the beginning of September, and have ended up with a huge blister on one of my toes. I have really good runners, and normally walk a lot. However, these extra 2 hours a day, have reminded me that I need to be REALLY nice to my feet!

  10. I love walking in my travels and appreciate my feet even when not traveling 🙂 Nice theme for Travel Photo Thursday 🙂

    • Hi Salika…I’m with you on looking after my feet. We only have one set, so important to keep them happy!

  11. I can’t imagine wearing sandals in the snow. My tootsies would be frozen. I really like the picture of the Korean girls dancing. They look as light as air. I also like the expressions on the faces of the Balinese dancers.

    • Hi Michele…It really was a hot day, even way up on the mountain!

  12. This is a unique post angle. Great pics!
