Fab Travel Footwear

Hello friends! I’m back from my 2 ½ week trip to Europe, I flew home from Germany yesterday and am still feeling a bit of jet lag this afternoon but it’s not too bad. For my first 10 days in Europe I had a traveling companion, my good girlfriend Karin accompanied me to Paris and London and we had such a blast. I spent a few days in Salzburg alone, then was joined by my husband for the last five days which we spent in Austria and Munich, Germany. It was a dream trip and I can’t wait to return, I’ll share some highlights in the weeks to come.

In Europe I was so lucky with the weather and I ate the most fabulous food. I saw soooooo much because I walked just about everywhere I went. I averaged 8 miles a day, and some days I walked up to 12 miles! I never had any issues with sore feet because I invested in quality footwear (all that walking justified extra cheese and beer ha!) so today I thought I’d share a quick post about the three pairs of shoes I lived in while I was there.

A friend of mine recommended the Naot brand and she was right, the two pairs of Naot sandals that I walked the big cities in were lifesavers, no blisters and no aching feet, not once!

Europeans wear good looking sneakers so to blend in I bought a pair of Josef Siebels and I really love them. They come in so many great colors (how cute are the red ones and the blue ones?) but I chose platinum metallic to coordinate with my wardrobe (the platinum color is slightly more gold than silver).

These sneakers were perfect closed toe shoes for those days when my weather app predicted the chance of rain and were perfect for the two times it actually did. Also great for plane travel too, very comfortable and chic!

All three held up so well I’m tucking them into my closet for my next travel adventure that will require a lot of walking. I highly recommend both brands for your travels too!

Summer Break in Europe

By Kate Riley July 18, 2016

Greetings friends! I’m more than halfway through my summer European travel adventure, first Paris, then London, and today I spent the day in Salzburg. I strolled all through town soaking up all the charm that exists here and seeing some amazing sunset views.

When I was in law school many years ago I stayed in Salzburg and took a three week legal course here so this place is extra special to me and it is so great to return again and stay for a few days.

I’m taking the week off so I can fully enjoy the remainder of this trip. I’m headed to Munich on Thursday and then home on Sunday and will be back to blogging more regularly next week.

Until then, Auf Wiedersehen !
