Barefoot on the Camino

Posted June 8, 2015 | by Sue Kenney | in Barebottom Shoes | no responses I love the thrill of living a simple life, carrying a backpack and just walking everyday. To be honest though, there is always a little fear thrown in, even as a seasoned pilgrim I never know what the Camino has in store for my group or for me.
I have written a blog about the experiences on the Camino walking 225 kilombeters with 8 other people in May 2015. Read about the trials and tribulations and maybe a bit about the thoughts that go through my mind as I walk the Camino for the 10th time leading a group. Most of the time I will be barefoot, in minimalist shoes when needed and of course I will wear my own design Barebottom Shoes. This adds another element of experience as the 7000 sensory nerve endings in the soles of my feet take in the terrain, temperature, and all the ground I step on. They send feedback to my central nervous system, via my brain, to commission my body to adapt to every situation. It's truly a visceral way to connect with the path and nature too. Read more here.
