Be it a sandy beach, colourful street art or a breathtaking drop to the ocean – when we Travelettes get to a particularly beautiful place with a unique floor or view down below, we all take the obligatory photo of our feet. There are some people who go just a little bit further with this and take #fromwhereistand to a whole new level. One of them is Kimmie Conner, a South Californian native who travels the world and takes us with her through photos of her feet in the most awe-inspiring places.

Nope, my feet aren’t photoshopped in there. And that little speck of white down below? That’s the boat we’re attached to by a few lil ropes as we parasailed on the ‘extra high’ option😳✈️🚤 such an incredible experience. This is yet another image from my “The World & My Feet” series – where I have taken similarly awesome/interesting photos of my feet everywhere I have traveled – see my last few Instagram posts for an idea, or better yet visit the link in my bio to see them all! They’re great, I promise😝 Some more exciting news, im officially going back for round 2 as a tour guide in Croatia this summer💙 can’t wait to return to this stunning country!! #selfeet #myfeet #parasailing #gopro #goprogirl #view #croatia #makarska

So there’s this weird thing I always do when I’m traveling… and it’s taking pictures of my feet. In front of views, interesting textures, memorable situations, and anything that really saves a moment in m head. A little while ago I decided to group these by year, and I have now (finally) released the 2015 edition of “The World & My Feet.” Last year was massive for me- moving abroad to London, getting my dream job in Croatia, spending some time at home in CA, and traveling through Southeast Asia for a few months on my way to Oz. Needless to say, my feet went a LOT of crazy places, like in this hammock watching the sunset over the mountains & river in Laos.

Kimmie is a natural born world traveler and has been exploring the globe for three years. On her blog and Instagram she shares the best pictures and stories from her adventures and has an entire section dedicated to showing you the world at her feet.

As the daughter of a pilot and a flight attendant it comes as no surprise that she has been bitten by the travel bug early on and now loves to share her experiences. In 2015 she has been exploring Europe and South East Asia, before hitting up Australia in 2016.

‘I’m not entirely sure why I started doing this…. my feet aren’t all that attractive and basically always have small chips of old nail polish somewhere and are slightly dirty because I don’t like to wear shoes… but it has evolved into a tradition nonetheless that brings back tons of memories and also an appreciation for shoes that have been there for me through it all,’ she says in a recent article she published for the Huff Post, where you can find even more inspiring pictures of the places that Kimmie’s feet carry her.

My new photo journal (link in bio) is more than just photos of my feet in front of nice views (although a lot of them are!). It’s all about textures, patterns, color, and moments frozen in time. Your feet are always there, but what’s beneath them that counts – trails they have traversed, mountains they’ve climbed, beaches they have relaxed on. When you think about it, your feet have taken you everywhere you’ve ever been! Right here I stopped to appreciate this beautiful pattern on the beach off the coast of north wales, collecting seashells half buried in the small grains of sand. This photo brings me right back to that cold moment, rubbing my sandy hands together to keep them warm as I examined my shells and tried to keep up with my uncle as he walked along. to see all my moments like this of the last year, and my favorite photo compilation ever, follow the link in my bio👍🏻👌🏼📷 @drakepeterj 🏃🏻 #feet #selfeet #sand #texture #pattern #redwharfbay #anglesey #wales #travel #ihavethisthingwithfloors
