I like the feel of the ground. It gives me joy, makes me feel light and connected to the moment. That’s why I take off my shoes or sandals wherever possible. I walk or run. When I’m in the Netherlands, right in the city center. When I’m in Turkey, more like in the seaside towns.

I’m not joking when I say “I run barefoot”! I once ran a 10k in Utrecht and about a 6k in Izmir. After that I decided to join a public run at least once a year but then came the virus worldwide, cancelling all of the events. I am waiting to move back to the Netherlands to go out and run barefoot just for practice. It is impossible to run even with shoes around where I live in Izmir. Here’s a moment from the Utrecht Urban Culture Run 2017:
