Foot Fotos

The World

We thought we’d “get our feet wet” with a new, playful contest for our readers. Have you ever seen the photos floating around social media sites that show selfies of people’s feet with a gorgeous setting in the background?  They are much cooler than a “wish you were here” postcard and the foot thing makes it personal.  

Since you, our readers and supporters, are located all over the globe, we figured there are some awesome places that you (and your feet) have been, and you might like to share. Phil, a friend here in Belize, is an great example of this. He posted this photo recently on his Facebook page:

And here’s what he had to say about it:

“As I take a well-deserved break on my beloved hammock. I notice this enormous grasshopper hanging with me. Then I think to myself "self, is that critter chewing on the ropes?" Ultimately I realize that I would have to actually get up from my resting place to see. Will my fear of damage to my beloved hammock and possible injury prevail over my laziness? Carla is about 25 feet away on Facebook, maybe I could PM her to investigate. Oh well, I think I will just wait and see.”

Cool huh?

Did you happen to notice the beautiful, lush jungle in the background of the photo? Ah, paradise!

Here’s one of my feet when we were in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, exploring the blue-bricked streets in my blue Vibram 5-Fingers running shoes.
