Travel theme: Feet

This week’s theme is brought to you by the ladder I dropped on my foot earlier today. I was wearing flip-flops; it wasn’t pretty. Still, I am grateful for the inspiration, however painful. I was surprised to find quite a few foot photos when I went rummaging through my travel shots, like this one with my friend Jo on a precarious rope bridge over Lava Canyon on the slopes of Mount St Helens.

Ahh, my trusty old jungle boots, dangling off the edge of the highest temple pyramid in Tikal, watching dawn break over the jungle.

My jungle boots, covered in jungle mud, over the jungle!

Wedding feet in the grounds of the Iolani Palace on Oahu. The bride (my sister-in-law) rocked those red converse – best wedding outfit ever.


Mud never looked so good – bringing sexy back to sheep shearing with bright pink wellies at the world renowned Sheep Olympics in Gorey, Ireland.

Footloose and fancy free, clambering over red rocks in flip-flops on a foggy, rainy, monsoon day in Arches National Park, Utah.

It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.   – J.R.R. Tolkien

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself
Any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.   –  Dr. Seuss
