Join me on this imaginary barefooted walk....

Did you know that even for that there are people here in Germany who'd pay for doing that? Oh, well....
The "Erlebnisspädagogik" is on it's rise....And what is this? Well, basically it's all about educating children and adults about the outdoors, about life in the forests, for example. Specially in the urban areas many people cannot simply walk into a forest, first they'd have to get there. So, there are some smart people who offer professional courses for managers and schoolclasses, trying to teach teamwork, conflictmanagement, mediation, etc., using whatever the outdoors have to offer. Well, it's not really my profession, even when it's also a part of culture (everything is culture!).

So, I just go into the forest the way I am, barefooted to feel the ground, and without any lessons in mind, just enjoying the nature the way it is...



Starting well....so nice and soft and warm in the sun.....

Oh my, this is going to be a long way....
The first hurdle! (The height es exactly my height by the way, I could just (barely) walk through it!

Just what happened to the right side??
So nice and cool and...ouch ouch ouch....nice.....

Final steps....
Awww.....sure was worth it!

Well, really, everything should walk barefooted once in a while!  There are no special tricks with it at all, you simply let your shoes at home and take some steps without them....Feeling the different types of grounds, soft or hard, or stony, or sandy, or wet, or pointy, or or or ..... Unlike with shoes, it feels like it's possible to walk on and on for hours!
