Photo Series: Feet Follow Heart (Part 2)

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?

    This is a very unique perspective on your feet taking you places. Love the pictures of the different patterns on the floors. I grew up in Vietnam and I do miss walking on those really cool tiles. I’m actually going to be going back there soon so this comes at a very convenient time. My feet have taken me everywhere, and soon I’ll be where you were.

      I’m so happy that you’re going to be back home and see these places again! I really love Vietnam and have even considered moving there at some point. Have an amazing time and thanks so much for reading!

    I love the idea of it and i might do this as well. Lovely photos as well. I have not thought about this but it is surely a great idea to capture awesome moments with your feet.

      Glad I gave you some inspiration! I always take pictures of my feet when I’m places – it’s such a weird way to remember places, but in all actuality my feet are the most important part of the entire trip!

    I love feet pictures so this photo post was pretty cool. Lovely floor designs and interesting to note how they make for unique photography. Oh and the fake Havaiana’s are the way to go 🙂

    I never get tired of looking at tiles. All of these tiles are so pretty and this photo series is such a great idea. Someone once complained about how big their feet were and I said to be grateful that they even have feet 🙂 I’d much rather have big feet than none at all!
