In my series Feet Follow Heart, I want to explore the significance of our feet and the power they have to guide us toward our wildest dreams.
Has anyone ever thought about how important our feet are? For those of us who are lucky enough to be blessed with healthy and functioning lower limbs and feet, I think it’s time we appreciate just how fantastic they are. One of the most pivotal moments for a human being’s life is the day he or she learns to walk! From that day forward, our feet carry us to our first day of school, our first date, our first and last day of university, our first job…you get the idea.
For travelers, our feet are vital to our adventures. Our feet take us where our hearts want to go. They take us anywhere from mountain tops and ocean cliffs to airports and local taxis. Our feet ground us when we need to settle and move us when it’s time to get up and go.
For the second part of the series, I wanted to highlight how intricately amazing many of the floor tiles are throughout Vietnam. When I first came to this country in 2014, I knew that my 9 day trip wasn’t going to be enough and I often thought about returning at some point. Fortunately, I was recently afforded the opportunity to spend an entire month in the gorgeous country and, as I anticipated, was taken aback by its beauty. The country is so uniquely diverse; perhaps one of its more interesting qualities are the fact that the tiles are so spectacular.
I must give a shout out to the shoes featured in this are my trusty [fake] Havaiana’s, which I got in Bangkok on one of the first days on our trip moments after my one and only pair of flip flops broke on Khao San Road. While I was initially unimpressed with having to shell out the cash, I’m happy with the fact that they’ve carried me to so many awesome places!
What about you? Have your feet taken you on any adventures lately?
