Barefoot in Bukit Timha
I recently had the opportunity to hike to the highest peak in Singapore... Bukit Timha Summit. To get out and experience nature in Singapore, my family spent a day hiking around the Bukit Timha Nature Preserve that makes up a large portion of this island nation.
I was proud that all four of us donned Soft Stars... kids in Ramblers and Playtimes, husband in RunAmocs, and I in the new RunAmoc Dash... after all aren't minimal shoes the best way to enjoy nature? I must say I looked down a little at all the high tech boots and running shoes I saw clomping around. But my snobbery was quickly replaced by awe and humility when I saw people that had surpassed my minimalism. There were no less than three barefooters out enjoying the beautiful day.
At the summit we saw another set of critters that skipped the footwear and opted for nude toes...
