Have red shoes? Will travel

Our travels around Europe over the past few months have been tremendously exciting, and when pounding the pavements and cobbled streets of this incredible part of the world, a comfortable pair of shoes has really been a must. I would have been lost without my favourite red shoes on these travels, which have been ever-so-trusty in covering the kilometres of many of Europe’s wonderful cities and towns. I purchased these as a gift from my Gran with some money she gave me for Christmas last year. At the time, they seemed perfect for seeing me through the dark and chilly Northern Hemisphere festive season. Little did I know when I got them, that these shoes would bring a smile to my face every time I wore them, and they continue to! In fact, on occasion, I have even noticed strangers (from small children to older adults) give my shoes more than a passing glance as they walk past me on the street, which makes me smile even more. Sometimes, it really is the little things in life.

What shoes do you favour for your travels? Or do you have another travel item which is a must-pack when you get to explore exciting towns and cities?

  1. I saw a Miro book on the new book display at the library today, which made me think of you two (Barcelonaaaaaa!). However, it didn’t make me think of Shaun of the Dead, so you win.

        Who did the super awesome collagey(?) works that we saw at the Miro gallery?

      • The super-awesome collage work you saw with us at the Fundacion Miro was by Scottish artist Eduardo Paolozzi. We have a book about him and his work, we’ll let you check it out!

  2. And like Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz, do you click your ruby slippers to get you home? 😉
