Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Jean F., who left this tip as a comment on my “10 Things You Don’t Need to Pack” post:
“I generally bring two pairs of shoes, BOTH of which are comfortable, with one that can pass as a dressy shoe. The reason I like both to be comfortable was perfectly illustrated by a trip to Scotland this summer. We went kind of off the beaten path to see if we could travel through time through some standing stones by taking an illegal shortcut through a field that turned out to be boggy. Our shoes were COMPLETELY soaked through, thoroughly drenched. So I switched to my other comfortable shoes until the first ones were dry, which actually took more than a day. There is nothing more miserable than wet or aching feet.”
I advise against taking illegal shortcuts, but I do agree with the suggestion to bring two pairs of comfortable shoes, especially if you’ll be going hiking or somewhere rainy. Thanks, Jean! For more packing tips, check out the full post.
