In anticipation of needing sturdy, water resistant, and comfy shoes for future trips, I purchased these (butt ugly) Skechers...normally a comfortable brand...and wore them yesterday morning. No, Ms Fashion Police, I don't normally wear tennis socks with this type of shoe, why do you ask?
I digress. My left big toe was not happy after only two hours. These puppies are not going to Norway. Enter trusty sneakers:
So these are my walking shoes, with a dressier black pair thrown in for when i need them, along with some glitzy evening shoes. And my trusty Crocs. They don't weigh a thing and have already been all over Europe anyway. I can't travel without them. Ever.
My feet have to be happy. That's not asking for too much, right?!
Cruising requires more stuff than our normal jaunts...more outfits for evenings...and more shoes. MM and I know how to travel light, going to Europe with only two carry-ons apiece. Can't do that when cruising, but that's OK. We take one larger (notice I did not say LARGE) rolling suitcase that we check on the flight, in addition to taking our carry-ons. This is still manageable when we get to our destination because of those wonderful wheels, even on my computer backpack. Never buy suitcases without GOOD wheels.
I am mostly packed and will finish up today. MM is home, and that makes me happy, too. Dirty laundry came as a package deal. He is worth it! Now it is his turn to get packed. I left a little room for him in the larger bag. Really, I did.
Enjoy today. Life is not a dress rehearsal, y'all. Stay happy..........and that includes happy feet, too!
