These are the boots that I wore during all four of my volunteer posts.
These boots kept my feet warm and dry. I learned how to milk in these boots. I wore them on many long walks through the countryside. I weeded, mucked out stables, picked loads of fruits and vegetables, pruned shrubs, and mixed cement while wearing these boots.
To save space in my pack, I would wear them while traveling between volunteer posts. And I’m sure I garnered some strange looks whenever I did this.
I left these boots at my final post in Brittany for another volunteer to use. I don’t have much use for them now that I’m no longer farming. They’re quite bulky. They also smell horrible.
I fly home tomorrow morning. I’m not ready to stop posting. I still have many ideas, stories, and images for you. I need to regroup. For now, I’ll leave you with this image. I think it’s fitting.
