A Quirky Collection

I think every traveler has some weird collection to make them remember about their journey. Also it’s like a common secret, some travelers love to collect thing that they have interest with. Just like me, I like to capture my feet around the place I’ve been. It’s remind me how I use my leg to walk here and there, make me feeling grateful for having feet and also such a reminder for me, how I can accomplished the target and how I can reach the place that I really want to see. Inspired by what I did every time I go in a journey, my boyfriend told me, why not I compile all the pictures and write about it. I think, that’s a good idea!

 

The idea to write about this come when he saw me take lots of pictures of our feet.

He didn’t understand, how this picture for me is simple but so intimate 😛

 

When you are in a trip,  usually you have extra power that make you able to walk from the morning until evening without being tired. Some travelers even cut their budget of hotel and bring their bag everywhere while visiting some places in the city. In Europe and some Asia countries, the sightseeing can be in walking distance, that’s why walking play important role for many travelers.  For me, I do enjoy walking, it’s like a spiritual meditation while also pay attention in detail with all the building, daily life and people I met along the way. I also like to walk, not only it’s good for my health but it’s kind of bring fascinating feeling when I lost around small alley in unknown cities. Just like what happened to me when I was in Thamel, Kathmandu. I woke up early and start my walk around 7 am while the shops still close. Yes I do like a tourist, cause I brought a map and look everything in detail. But then because of walking, I found a beautiful old small Buddhist temple. How I love the feeling of blending with the local when I walk here and there. For sure you will get some things that you won’t get if you do it with cars or tuk-tuk.

 

Ah, but also I’m not stupid. Some places only can be reached by using car. And such a general habit for me, every time I finish trip to one place, at home I will do massage for my whole tired body, especially my legs.

 

This article I dedicated for my feet who already brought me to many places. I am so grateful for the opportunity to walk here and there and watch everything in detail. It’s more fascinating than traveling in Porsche, even I don’t reject a horse ride, I always want a horse ride. But for now, let’s celebrate this feet we have!
