Almost barefoot in new running shoes

If you see someone in strange shoes running along the Ring Road outside Chaweng Beach at Koh Samui in Thailand, its only me working out in my new Vibram Fivefingers Bikila.

Heading out for a run the VFF Bikilas I got in Singapore.

Chaweng Beach is nice and really long, but tilts far to much to be good to run on. The Ring road, on the other hand, has lots of traffic but wide shoulders and gets less crowded outside of town.

My run along the Ring Road up to the look out point. A bit hilly but a nice workout.

    Hey Marcus, it´s been a while since you wrote. This is a great source of inspiration for me! Are you still travelling?

    Hi Jonas!
    Yes, I am still traveling (but not writing a lot..) – right now I’m working at a cafe 10 stories above Kowloon Park here in Hong Kong. I can see Central and The Peak across the water, Kowloon Mosque below me and ICC (the worlds 4th highest building) across the park.

    I will leave Hong Kong in the beginning of may to spend summer in Sweden, but hope to go back to Italy in the fall.

    How are your travels going – I read about your stay in Spain. Any new work/travel plans?
