I was standing on a beach in Cozumel. The Caribbean Sea so clear and blue it left me speechless. I stood there, with my face to the sun, eyes closed. I listened to the laughter of the other people, roar of the surf and felt such peace. I knew I was in my element. I didn’t want to go home; wanted to make the sea the place I live, laugh and love.
Beautiful story and shot!

Another travel post! I went to Aklan this past week and my last two days were spent in the wonderful island of Boracay. My last visit was way back in 2006 and it was just how I remembered it- white sand, clear waters, tourists. Truly paradise from sunrise to sunset. Being known as one of the best beaches in the world, well, what more is there to say! Nothing beats laying out on a chair in the forgiving heat, pure buko/coconut in hand, Conor Maynard’s Contrast album on play, listening to the waves of the ocean, and seeing never ending mountains off in the distance. I finally got to experience Bora nightlife, too, which, by the way is a whole other world from the daytime. As my cousin said, “We broke the dance floor.” Let’s just say it was very hard to pack up and leave the next day. Sigh. Until next time, Bora!

The first really hot weekend we’ve had in Auckland, New Zealand since I moved here in March. We went down to Cheltenham Beach to catch the sun. The tide was low and the water was really clear and beautiful. That island you can see in the distance is Rangitoto. Beautiful day!
Beautiful day for sure and great shots!

Although my life tends to revolve around boarding flights and working in travel, I am also a keen writer, pianist and back in the days when free time existed I painted a lot too. I am currently studying for a National Diploma in Travel & Tourism which will ultimately count towards my degree in Travel management and Tourism. Oh and of course I am an avid Formula One Fan…probably the only sport I will sit down to watch from beginning to end (and possibly rewind to see the best bits again).
And finally your probably wondering why my site is called aroundtheworldinheels? Well my parents didn’t nickname me Imelda Marcos for nothing! Shoes are my thing. For some women its all about handbags or maybe sunglasses. For me its shoes. A beautiful pair of new shoes is enough to make me happy for a week! And of course no matter where I go in the world I have at least two pairs with me. Come what may, rain or shine, muddy terrain or desert sands I’ll have them with me! Even if it does mean I end up with a few sore ankles or two!
We are honored to have you barefooted here!

Saturday a bunch of us expats here in Hong Kong took a junk trip to Lamma Island. There was lots of food, drink, body paint and bare feet!
Great photo collage!

“El Nido is located about 238 kilometers northwest of Puerto Princesa. Most of the islands in El Nido have pockets of fine white sand beaches and coves – perfect for sunbathing and picnic lunches.
With over 40 beaches to discover, El Nido, Palawan is definitely THE destination for island hopping. On our first day, we were welcomed with the sight of enchanting lagoons with tranquil turquoise-green water and caves that can actually take you to hidden, white sandy beaches. Perfect. Absolutely, stunningly PERFECT.
If you really love nature (like me), then El Nido is the perfect place for you. Since I couldn’t remember the names of some of the Islands, I suggest you visit the place yourself. You won’t regret it.
El Nido is indeed a magical place. A gift of nature, so to speak. No wonder why Alex Garland got his inspiration to write his first book, “The Beach” in one of the islands surrounding Bacuit Bay. “
Sounds wonderful there and great shot!

“Barbados has always been a place that I have been dying to go. I don’t know anyone who has been there and I knew I had to check it out. One of my travel dreams is to visit every island in the Caribbean. We just returned from our ah-may-zing trip and I can finally check this off of my list! Here are a few pictures from my vacation.
One of the highlights of our trip to Barbados was our snorkeling trip. We booked a catamaran trip that was nothing short of spectacular. We were picked up from our resort bright and early and our driver gave us a mini tour of the island on the way to our boat. I was a tad skeptical because where we were staying, the water was very, very rough. The driver informed us that only the east side of the island has rough waters, and she was taking us to the west side where the water is basically still. It is amazing how different this part of the island was.
We chose to take the trip on one of the smaller catamarans (only 10 people – including the 2 who worked on the boat), and it was so worth it. They took us out to an area where the sea turtles “hang out.” As soon as we got into the water the turtles were swimming all around us! It was insane. I can’t believe how close they were getting to us. My underwater digital camera paid for itself on just this one experience. “
Looks beautiful and great photos!

“The longest beach in Réunion is called L’Étang-Salé, which literally means The Salty Pond. Unusually, the sand is a volcanic black and so burning hot during the day that your feet are a painful, blistering red if you manage to walk across it. It’s a popular spot for surfers and I understood why as the waves were particularly immense on the day that I visited the ‘Pond’ with a few of my cousins. They were the kind of strong waves that can pull you out into the sea if you’re not careful, so we sat on the shore and let a few waves lap over us, which inevitably made us feel like silly, carefree children splashing in the water. A day at the beach is always somehow therapeutic, even if this particular day left me with a mass of black sand all over that took an age to wash out! “
Sounds like an interesting and great spot!
