5 top women's travel shoes

Lightweight Sneaker

When it comes to travel, it is no secret that a comfortable pair of walking shoes is necessary. There is a reason why the shoe is a passenger leather traveler everywhere. But in your quest to find the perfect pair of fashion shoes, keep in mind not only comfort but also weight. Heavy sneakers can weigh your suitcase and quickly become the burden of packing. Instead, look for sneakers that are also lightweight and lightweight to carry. For example, these perforated sneakers are very hard and are also breathable. If you are someone who easily gets sweaty legs, such a couple could be godfather.

If you fly by plane, another aspect that you should consider is the airport security line. If you discover and re-cling your sneakers to be a hassle, consider investing in a couple of unusual tennis shoes. They provide all the comfort of the shoes without the hassle of shoes, and come in several different varieties – from zip to velcro. And if you think you have to compromise on style, you'll be glad to know that today there are several women's fashion passive sneakers on the market, making it easier than ever to find the pair that suits you.

Strappy Stan

Another convenient style for a trip is a strappy apartment. High-quality apartments can make very comfortable walking shoes – they are perfect for walking through the airport's airport terminals, bus stops or even walking around the city on your travels. If you have tight legs or are sliding on your skate, the strap shoes will provide a proper fit. Just be careful to select a couple that is not too compact. For this purpose I recommend looking for a shoe with an adjustable Velcro strap. It enables customization to fit quickly and easily. Also look for homes with a comfortable, thick sole.

Simple Sliding

If you do not want to waste your time on leaving and leaving your shoes, consider something simpler than regular sandals or unusual sneakers. The slides are perfect for exactly what they sound – they simply slip and move their feet, making them the ideal choice for travelers who are always on the go. The slides are also suitable for walking on the beach, hanging by the pool, and as I have already mentioned, those dirty airports. When buying slides, it is important to find the best possible stress; should not be too tight or too loose on the leg. First and foremost, be careful that it is the only dough and gives your leg a proper support.

Comfortable Boot

If you are traveling during the fall or winter, you want to ensure that your legs are warm and comfortable no matter where they are wandering. Low paws or flat boots can add extra extra to your travel compartment. Look for styles that are easy to fit and blend, and walk comfortably for long distances. If you are at the forefront of the winter climate, choose boots with a soft interior, such as shearling. If you're worried about the more frequent boots that take up too much space in your case, consider the more popular boots, the style that only affects the ankle. The best boots have a cushion for added comfort, so be sure to choose this when choosing your travel.

Enjoy traveling with children in Europe


Prague is not a place for high heels. Looking at those who dare, you see women struggling and exchanging between stone slabs and intricate streets and pavements in Prague. Prague is a walking city that delights your senses with magnificent lanes as widespread as the Champs Elysee and as narrow as a maze of labyrinths, returning you back to the time and ghettos of the twentieth century in Eastern Europe. Prague was built along the river Vitava. The beautiful city landscape has incarnated and supported a series of emperors, artists and religious communities. The buildings are decorated with statues and graffiti (originally meaning "design on buildings") that make you like going through an open-air museum. [13] Thirteen bridges cross the river with the most famous hiking bridge Charles Bridge, built more than 600 years ago. What you notice when walking across the bridge are 30 statues of religious figures separated by about 30 feet. They were evidently housed there in the 17th century to lead the masses to the cathedral on the hillside. At one end of the bridge is the Tower Bridge from the Old Town, leading you to the "Old Town". It looks like the entrance to a castle in Disneyland. It seems a miracle about where Disney actually got its original ideas. We walked across the bridge and night and day and stopped to enjoy the jazz musicians who play their incredible music. Zoé-Pascale, with her dancing soul, leaned into the music enjoying herself to see the whole world. After we gave them 3 tips, we decided to buy their CD Jazz music from the twenties. Her joy in giving money to street musicians stretches to the prospect on the street. We could not pass on any prosy without her wanting to give her money. The man in front of us kneeled his head, touching the earth as in prayer. He was wearing a hat in his hand, hoping the money would hit her as if it was Manna from the sky. After a few moments, we gave Zoé-Pascale, 20 Kronen and she jumped happily to the pros who dropped 20 Kronen in the hat. He lifted his head and nodded as if to say "Thank you". After several more prospects and Kronen, we tried to explain to Zoe-Pascale that we should choose how and who will help because there are many people who need it. Is the blind woman acting on a recorder, a beggar with a cap or an animal in shelters. Oh, be so innocent and I want to help others without any questions. However, he retrospectively wanted to know how the blind would know how much money he actually earned. Good question, we said and immediately went into another explanation. This is the joy of traveling with a small child!

On the opposite side of the river is the Pragov Castle. The fortress on the top of a hill surrounded by forest foliage is now the home of the Czech parliament and is in full use. St. The virus built between the 14th and 20th centuries (several wars between which the building was stopped) is eclectic, with a Gothic base and a renaissance, rounded cap on top. After climbing 287 stone circular steps of about 3 feet (with people climbing up and down) we reached the top of the tower with a beautiful view of the whole Prague. This climb was enough to promise us to increase aerobic exercise and get a better shape! We actually thought a few people had a heart attack before they reached the top.

As part of the Castle complex, called "Golden Strip", it was built with colorful huts where the goldsmiths lived. , Franz Kafka lived on the Golden Road and wrote his best records not published until after his death in 1924. Thinking about returning to the bookstore where we read Kafkin's work, I could now imagine the environment that fed his paranoia and fear. disturbing novels find communist years, and after that we passed a wall that cried on the front of the poster of Franz Kafke, and next to the posters was a picture of the Russian dolls Zoé-Pascale just bought that day. smaller and smaller dolls hide each other as a kind of surprise. The poster had a picture of a doll, but instead of smiling face it looked like the mouth of a sea dog ready to bite with sharp white eyes beneath the picture she said, "The Communist Museum." You heard your breath as you realized that, in a quick glance, it looked like pretty dolls in all stores, but under it there was such cruelty and hatred. Prague (such as a large part of Eastern Europe) was acquired by occasional anti-Semitic behavior and high acceptance and independence points from the 10th century. Under certain rulers there were acts, discrimination and slaughter, while at other times in the 17th and 19th centuries, autonomy and independence gave life to a flourishing life in the Jewish Quarter. The old Jewish cemetery used from 1439 to 1778 has more than 200,000 people buried. This was the only place where the Jews could be buried during that time. Today stands as a memorial to the past. The idea of ​​a Nazi invasion of the Czech and Holocaust revives when you go through the Jewish quarter. It is hard to believe, and for two years the rich Jewish community was a ghetto in the ghetto, then sent to the gas chambers in concentration camps. We can not forget that nearly 80,000 Jews from this area died in the Holocaust. Twenty-two thousands escaped, and many of them came back to resume again. Now on the food! Our favorite meal we dare to admit was sausage in the center of the square. Choice of 6 different types of "saucisse" with selection of rolls, brown bread or baguette. Zoé-Pascal and my favorite were "saucisse" on a paper board with mustard, grilled onion and acidic acids and a piece of incredibly thick brown bread on the side. To round it up, we could get a bottle of their delicious domestic white wine. For the desert we discovered a dish called "Hot Love". A warm raspberry served on a plate of vanilla ice cream and chantilly (cream). The contrast between hot raspberries and cold vanilla ice cream melting in your mouth has caused you to grow older.


Remains of the communist era can be seen in different ways, but capitalism at every expense is the motto of those who live in the city today. Everywhere people are happy to take money, but are not aware or incapable (we are not sure where) participation in talking, smiling or thanking. Sometimes it seems as if they are rude, and sometimes you wonder if their lack of English makes them ridiculous. We went to dinner at the restaurant and found it to be filled. We wondered if we could put his name down and get back in 30 minutes. The woman looked at us and said, "No, no place." We were stunned there and asked politically again. "Is it possible to put our name on the list?" She replied, "Now we are full, no list." We wanted to stop there and start talking to her about how she could increase her business in five easy steps.

The only exception we found was the young leader of the ship with a beautiful red hair that had lived in Philadelphia for years. It seemed to have taught the US that if you smiled, laughed, and engaged people, they would in return pay and it would be well rewarded. After leaving the boat I noticed that every traveler gave her advice, and she in turn smiled and said. "I'm glad you loved your jokes." I believe this mentality of service is universal and can make everywhere a great place for those who work, visit and live.

Reading local work (in English), we saw an article about how the government is trying to encourage young people to have more than one child. Like most parts of Europe, the current natality will not be able to support the aging of the population. As we read this article, we realized that we never saw children in Prague. In fact, the only children we saw were tourists or children of former dogs. We have never seen old people. For the city as vibrant and accessible to older people, there was little or nothing. Probably the war and communism spurred them. Maybe they live in the country. That makes you weird. In our Hotel Jean and I enjoyed a massage for 40 euros for two consecutive days. The one I never talk about during the massage enjoyed a great deal. Jean who asks questions, learns more about the country and what it does today. Maserka (a valid source does not think) told him how beautiful it is in the land, simpler and cheaper. It lives about 40 km and you can afford a large house, and in Prague you could not afford a small apartment. (Sounds familiar!!). He said, however, that the main difference is that people are concentrating on making money in the city. If you have money you can make money and entrepreneurship is scary. We have seen this in a great example of the God Bagel Shop waiting. An American entrepreneur after the fall of communism came to Prague and opened the first bagel trade – now there are three. It may not look like a huge step forward for capitalism, but find a bagel in Europe like a needle in a haystack. He brought them and people bought them. You never know what the next great idea might be.

Why not just travel?

Travel is a fun activity. We all love traveling. We travel to various places to get away from our fast and busy lives. Everyone is tired of everyday monotone life. We all travel to enjoy and refresh ourselves. Travel is important to everyone. It helps to reduce tension and makes people happy. People get new experiences and knowledge from traveling. Some people like to travel to the group while others like to travel alone. Traveling in the group gives us a sense of security and safety. Travel alone gives a sense of freedom.

Mostly we do not encounter a problem when we are in urban areas. The problem begins as we move from the route. No one can predict when a problem arises. Comes when he wants to. Problems can differ from places we go. The journey is uncertain whether it may or may not arise during the journey. It is therefore better to take precautionary measures before traveling. We should always travel with family, friends, colleagues, etc. We may not find a travel partner for any trip. If traveling with a travel partner is not possible, it is better to travel with a guide or search for any other travel writer.

Travel alone can create different problems such as:

1. We can attack wild animals when we travel alone by dense forests. If we travel with a group or with a travel partner, there is less chance of attacking us. In case they attack us, help will help us. But if we travel alone, no one will be there for help. That's why it's better to travel with a passenger companion.

2nd We can have serious health problems such as acute mountain illness, HACE, HAPE, etc. When we travel to high altitude (when we go for trekking and hiking).

3rd Serious injury can lead to death.

4th We may be stuck in some dangerous problems.

5. We can lose our way.

6th In some places of local rebellion we can kidnap as captives,

7. We can get robbed, etc.

8. Hospitals may not be available in off-routes, and smaller health problems can become fatal. If nobody cares.

The movie 127 hours (based on the true story of Aaron Lee Ralston) directed by Danny Boyle also insists the traveler not to travel alone. Aron is a survivor of an accident on the canyons. He entered a crack in Southeast Utah. His hand was stuck in the rock. Then he tried to pull out his right hand but could not. With a twin knife, he cut off his right forearm to release him from the rock. He was captured there for five days and seven o'clock. He should not cut his forearm if he went on a journey with another. So, we always need to inform our family member and friends on their way. We always need a passenger partner. It's an inspirational real story. Everyone should look after him.

Never ever travel alone.

 Traveling in Mexico: Eating Inexpensively in Oaxaca

If you're seriously watching your pesos but want to try some authentic, good local fare, a tasty option would have to have a Oaxaca style meal at any of the many popular, family-owned and operated food stands in one of the Main Market buildings, which serve HUGE Oaxacea meal plus juice or drink for 30 pesos or so. They will be more than happy to explain the selections available (but only in Spanish). By all means do try a local drink made from slightly fermented, uncooked rice seasoned with spices called "Ochata", it's creamy white, thick and absolutely delicious! Here are more options for satisfying the cravings of the barrel:


El Meson Restaurant – Taqueria (All-You-Can-Eat Buffet)
Address: around the corner from the zocalo at Hidalgo No. 805
Phone: 515 – 2729

A popular eatery of Oaxaceños that features an all-you-can-eat breakfast or dinner buffet for $ 3.50. A selection of local dishes and specialties along with an assortment of fruit and vegetable platters, including desserts, are yours to exclusively sample. It's a good way to know some of the local staples.

Restaurant Las Mañanitas

Address: Rayon No. 221 at the corner of Fiallo [across the street from Pochcalli Institute]
Phone: 514-2868

A simple, quiet little place that serves tasty, inexpensive local fare. Service is fast and friendly. They'll even take the time to explain any new or unfamiliar items on the menu.

Restaurante El Amigo

Address: 20 de Noviembre between Hidalgo and Independencia

You just can not get any cheaper than this! At El Amigo, the charcoal-roasted chicken dinner for just $ 7 (seven dollars) includes a whole roast chicken, salad or cole slaw, sky-high stack of steaming corn tortillas, rice pilaf, soft drinks all around, and a selection of salsas and picantes. The atmosphere is plain, but the food is good and definitely filling enough. It's a good late night spot right in the market district.

Casa de Cartera (The House of the Guelaguetza)

Address: Murgia No. 102
Phone: 514 – 7585, 514 – 4603

You may just want to splurge a bit and try this elegant restaurant-bar which features a dazzling show in the style of Oaxaca's annual Guelaguetza festival in July . Now platters are Oaxaceña style meals. Their colorful, musical shows start around 8:30 pm nightly. Call for reservations.

Hacienda San Agustin

Address: Km. 2 Carretera to San Agustin Yatareni
Phone: 517 – 6477
e-mail: hdasagus@oax1.telmex.net.mx

Another great family spot for Oaxaceños is the Hacienda San Agustin. Not on the "tourist track" since it's out of the zocalo, the Hacienda offers a huge all-you-can-eat lunch and dinner buffet of typical Mexican and Oaxacea dishes, charcoal-grilled meats and sausages, mole, exotic fruits and desserts, beers and other alcoholic drinks including excellent samples of local mescals, with more food, drinks and selection than you could possibly manage in a week. All this at the manageable price of 40 to 50 pesos – most definitely worth the price. Some afternoons and evenings there's live entertainment too.

A Final Note on Cheap Eats

Another option is a really low-cost but excellent meal at a "Rosticentro". These are open-air barbeque establishments which will sell you a whole roast chicken with salad, potatoes, salsa and, of course, a stack of warm corn tortillas for two people, all for the paltry sum of $ 4.50 – that's right, four dollars and fifty cents! I still have not figured out how they make any money off that one. Apparently they do however, because the joint is jumping from morning till late. They're all around town but a good one to try is at Mina No. 1. 108 – 3 in the market district. Just look for the smoke from the grill or follow your nose. Pick up some soft drinks from the supermarket across the street on the corner for 6 pesos (about $ 0.60) each and you'll be all set.

Buying Mescal

La Perla de Matatlan
Address: 6a. de JP Garcia and Mina
Phone: 4 – 09 – 79
Hours: Monday through Saturday 10am to 6pm

Sunday 10am to 2pm

"La Perla" store with virtually every square inch of available space crammed with bottles of mescal in a staggering variety of quantities and prices. If you want the lowdown on how mescal is produced, from the Maguay plant to the bottle, they'll be more than happy to give you the whole story – all three hours worth! (but only in Spanish) As this is the main product of the region, and one of which can justly be proud, you just got to buy a bottle or two while you're in the region. Which kind to buy? Do not worry; they give free samples to help you "decide". Extra worms are available just a few steps away in the city's main market building.

Good luck.

6 Perfect keeping tips for traveling with jewelry

Do you travel somewhere hot for the fun of the sun this winter? Or maybe snowy slopes call your name. Regardless of your destination, the jewelry you bring may be the most valuable item you pack, so you need to pay more attention to your travel planning.

first First, decide which jewelry you will actually carry at your destination. That special four-ring ring that you carry on special events? Probably not. An entertaining cultured pearl yellow that goes with just about every dress … of course.

2nd Make a list of the jewelery you are using. Bring a copy with you, save it separately from the jewelery bag and leave a copy at home. Some insurance companies even suggest photographing your jewelry or recording your special items on your video camera.

3rd If you go, pack the jewelery in the carrying bag, never checked in luggage where it will be a terrific temptation for security windows. Or, wear jewelry on the day of travel, provided that they are not large enough to be able to launch safety gear. For added security, slide the pendant inside the shirt or sweater that you wear or rotate the ring so that only the plain bar shows. If you travel by train or car, put the jewelery in a bag that you carry personally in restaurants, resorts or apartments. And keep it with you at all times. Do not leave jewelry in the car or the case without supervision. Also, do not let hotel staff handle your bag … and potentially help with your bling.

5. In your apartment or resort, store jewelry in your room safe when you do not wear it.

6th Make sure your jewelry is properly secured and your insurance policy covers wherever you travel.

A lost diamond or gemstone can really put a silencer on your many anticipated breaks. Keep in mind that while you are on a winter break, your precious things are safe and sound. Happy Trips!

Vacation in vacation

Have you ever wondered what the difference between travel and vacation? These two things look pretty similar, but I think there is a big difference. I think when someone really travels, he experiences a whole new culture that does not only live in a week-long resort. When I say that I experience a whole new culture, I mean to really experience the places, the sounds, the taste of people, all the things that make culture what it is. I think this is the real essence of traveling. How much culture can honestly experience if you just go for a week and spend time together in the hotel. I always complain when I hear people talking about the awful vacation they have taken or about their planning for taking. Not that I would not take vacation, it's not the same as the trip. Do not misunderstand me that I will never dismiss the holiday, but I would love to have someone let me go. I think vacation time is more time to relax and try to charge the battery where the journey can physically take and work. Let's look at some of the things that make the journey so different from the annual vacation.

For me the journey can be an exciting experience, but it can also be exhausting both mentally and physically. I think that first of all the thing that makes the trip so unique and surprising is the fact that you have experienced a totally different culture. I mean, is there something exciting and then experiencing a new culture? I especially love the new people you can meet while traveling. In most foreign countries, local residents will go honeymoon to a full-fledged foreigner. Of course, not every culture is like this, and there are actually some places you can actually see. Another thing I really love to visit a new culture is food, of course I'm a total food drug, so maybe you do not like food as I do. While some people are disappointed with the thought of eating something I can not even recognize, I absolutely love the idea of ​​urinating culture through food. I think America would be America without apple pie? Absolutely not! So, just as America would not be America without apple pie India would not be India without Naan. So, the next time you travel, try some of the local foods. So, apart from the unique people and the unique food, there are a few other things that are great in relation to the journey compared to vacation.

Some people use their trip as a kind of time-consuming time and if that's what you want to do, the trip is definitely a great way to do it. People have been known to go around world travel for more than two years trying to understand better and often people come back knowing what they want to do with their lives or at least have a better idea. Likewise, when you live out of your backpack or suitcase with naked basics, you are inclined to understand what you think is really important in life. Nothing will make you understand the beauty of sunset as if you do not have a TV.

Another thing you can do while traveling overseas, which will throw you into culture and feel good about yourself, volunteering. Now there are many organizations that make you volunteer abroad, and often it is a ridiculous reward. So, my advice is that if you want to volunteer somewhere, and you are already at the destination, just ask. There are many different organizations in foreign countries, especially in developing countries, who would like to have you as a volunteer, and you will not even pay for it.

We have now looked at a few things that make a real trip and how to really throw yourself into culture, see how vacation is no different from traveling.

To show how vacation and travel are different, I'll use a vacation in Mexico and travel to Mexico. First, if someone goes to Mexico for vacation, he would probably go to a tourist town like Cancun. It's not that I'm dealing with Cancun I just say it's likely. That means you already have a bad position to learn about the culture because you have probably stayed at a resort that was only tailored to your needs. If you are traveling, you would probably have chosen a smaller tourist destination and you would probably find some kind of budget accommodation in the hostel. By simply staying in the hostel you can get in touch with the right local residents who are not just there to cheat you. Also, the resort will often have American food adapted to its American customers. This completely destroys the notion of experiencing new culture through food. On the other hand, if you are staying in a non-tourist part of the country you can experience the right local food, maybe even go to a real Mexican restaurant. Also, if you stay at the resort, you will only experience a summer resort, and when you leave, you will not even have the slightest idea of ​​what local residents live. Besides, you will not learn anything about the new culture and I must say that learning about new cultures is one of the main reasons why I love traveling so much. So, all in all, vacation and travel share some similarities, but there are two completely different ways to experience culture. In fact, when you are on vacation, you can not truly experience what is true culture. So what would you rather go for a vacation or go to travel?
