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

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

  13. Yes, sometimes you should treat your feet, and not just after a ladder accident (ouch!). Here is my version:

    “Hello Ailsa,
    Nice theme post for the travelers. Good shoes always work well for the travelers who want to travel by foot. Hope you enjoyed the trip very much. Isn’t it painful to travel on foot? Hope your shoes are very comfortable to give you the warm and soft feeling during those days!
