Shoes and Ketchup you say???

Yes,  when you travel, you want VERY comfortable shoes and please remember that it’s crucial, NEVER new shoes, never, never!  These shoes look like the tires of a track, Stylish but like tires, I hope they are light, summer shoes have to breathe and not weigh a ton, when you travel to Europe, you will realize that the majority of the streets are made of cobblestone and even with the most comfortable shoes, your feet will get a beating!

They have to be light, and I mean light as a feather! They have to make me fly, and not drag me down, and paste me on some Europian sidewalk!
 
You need flats that will make your long walks enjoyable!
I remember once in Paris I was with running shoes and jeans, very comfortable and ready for my long day! While having coffee,
I overheard in a conversation with some locals that the Americans visiting should leave behind Ketchup and running shoes when they come to Europe!
By the way, Never assume that people don’t speak your language, My French is not perfect but I get along and that I understood! I said nothing of course because it doesn’t make any sense, but about the shoes, I have an issue!!
Shoes and Ketchup! How about that!
I was not there to see a fashion show, I was there to devour Paris and I didn’t want any interference from my shoes or anything else for that matter!
Now about the Ketchup, maybe they have a point!
Shoes and Ketchup!

Shoes and Ketchup!

You are there to experience all new tastes and flavors, and butter!! Brace yourselves, there will be plenty of butter, but its good butter and it tastes so amazing! It’s not margarine its butter, really, delicious butter! I will never forget the best Millfeull that we had in a famous restaurant, it is located at 99 Avenue des Champs-Élysées and is part of Hotel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Paris, unbelievable taste !! You could feel the quality in every bite!
 
Paris was wonderful no question! I have done Paris a couple of times and always with the most comfortable shoes and never brand new, they have to be broken into! They have to be friendly!
Why I feel so strongly about the shoes because it happened to me with new shoes and I had to go get flip flops to make it through the day!
Smart casual is my preferred way of dressing when I travel, and please take many pictures, these happenings don’t happen very often!
I had a wonderful time and I thank my shoes!! Not fanny at all!
Shoes and ketchup, NO, just shoes!
Litsa, with Love!
