Diving In Feet First – 36 Traveling Boot Photos From Around the World

Posted on / by Alex Berger

It’s Thanksgiving back home, probably my favorite holiday of the year.  It’s a holiday about people, about coming together, and about taking a moment to focus on all that is positive in our lives. The people, the opportunities, the friends, the family, and yes, even the challenges.  As I reflect on what I’m thankful for travel comes to mind as a major aspect of my life and a true blessing.  In honor of that, I’ve put together this photo post showcasing some of my favorite signature boot shots from around the world.  If you enjoy these shots, feel free to check out the complete album over on flickr.

The world is a wonderful place and travel a spectacular gift.  If you’re already a veteran traveler, then I hope you’ll pause for a moment and reflect on all the gifts you’ve received from travel.  If you’re just gearing up for your first trip, then I encourage you to dive in and have to admit, I’m slightly jealous of the journal of self discovery, awe, adventure, and new experiences you’re about to undertake.   The majority of the photos in this post were taken on my Canon G11, though some shots were taken on my older Canon G6.

    Love the photos! It’s neat that you have consistently done that everywhere you have traveled but I wonder how silly you might look sometimes? hahaha For some of them it seemed like you were sitting in the middle of the street taking photos of your feet! haha
    love it though 🙂

      Oh, I look like a flaming idiot at times. Several new ones to upload. Nothing like sitting down in the middle of the street with my feet in the air. Yep. Definitely happens =)

      Thanks! Yep, it’s a fun way to remind myself I was there but still in a way that’s shareable and conveys part of the feel of the experience!

      Probably fairly close, we actually pulled in a back street and made our way down to the water that way vs. staying somewhere in the immediate area.

    Very cool, man. Glad you made it to Giant’s Causeway. That was one of my favorite places to visit in Ireland.
