Barefoot Friday

It was particularly nice to be working from home and keep my shoes at bay for the day. One of the principal reasons I'm not barefoot these days is that I cycle 5 miles into work and for that I appreciate my SPD clip-in cycle shoes (on my top recommended A530 pedals). When I get to work I've also been told that going around barefoot is not acceptable (which is a great shame) but I still manage to slip off my SPD shoes when we're going out for lunch, as walking around in cleats is quite annoying.

I now have toasty warm evening feet as a result.

Prague Barefoot

Not recently, admittedly, but I was reminded last night of my barefoot adventure round Prague back in 2008. The streets were lovely and clean and the joy of smooth round cobbles was something else. I arrived with only my suit and no shoes, my luggage having been lost in the airport. Thankfully a couple of days later I did have a new change of clothes and could wonder round looking a little less weird.
