Looking at the photos with our tag or with #visitpinas in Instagram, we noticed a pattern of feet as focus in various Philippine destinations. We’ve also noticed that all of these photos are from women. We don’t know why. Perhaps this is just an extension to women’s love for shoes. Yes, men also love sneakers, but that’s nothing compared to the relationship between women, shoes and bags. Let’s feature some of these feet that happily roamed the gorgeous islands of the Philippines.
Boracay Island, Aklan
“The feet of a wanderer,” goes the description of eikaakire (check his account, @eikaakire , for more photos) in her Boracay feet selfie. We really don’t know if there’s a standard look of a wanderer’s feet, although, in our experience, it’s absolutely not perfect but of seasoned beauty.
We miss Boracay (see 5 Reasons We Still Love Boracay). The fine, white sand and clear waters captured in this photo. Boracay going to reopen in October. We’re excited.
Where’s this? “The jagged cliffs of Itbayat,” says Maj Flores (check his account, @majflores, for more photos), who love telling stories through visuals. This photo is rare (and, we must say, dangerous, so please be careful in taking selfies, feet or otherwise). It’s rare because Itbayat (Batanes) is not easily accessible. Also, of the few brave souls that get there, how many do you think take a photo of their feet with the background natural beauty? Iba si Maj. Beautifully different.
Sibul Springs, Bulacan
Put together ’em immaculately manicured toes and spring water, what do you get? You get this nice shot, courtesy of a flamingo who doesn’t give a flock, Cindy Soliven Ligon (check his account, @iamcindependent, for more photos). Shot in Madlum, Sibul Springs, San Miguel, Bulacan. Looks fun and refreshing. So, to paraphrase Cindy, watah you waitin’ fo? Go ahead, enjoy!
Kawasan Falls, Cebu
If feet can speak (that would be scary, but bear with us), these will tell us that they belong to a laid-back traveler. Not surprising that Key Ylanan (check his account, @ikeydy, for more photos) has this caption: “We always have a choice to explore, to stay, to love, to live, and to be HAPPY.” We couldn’t agree more, sistah!
