Flying can be a rough experience. Weather delays, small seats and sky-high baggage fees can drive any seasoned traveler slightly batty. Oh, and did we mention the bare feet?
As all of us try to find comfort in an increasingly mobile world, this piece in the New York Times caught our eye:
"On recent flights I’ve had bare feet beside me, on the back of my armrest, on the bulkhead in front of me. Once, upon feeling something push through the sliver of space where the seat back and bottom meet, I reached behind me and grabbed a stranger’s toes."
The article goes on to explain how "barefoot flying is merely one example of how public space, especially in airports and on airplanes, is rapidly transforming into more personal and intimate territory."
