I have to invest in some really good walking shoes. I NEED them to be stylish but more importantly I need them to protect my feet if I’m going to be trapsing up and down the street of Salzburg. ( really it’s taken me this long to use that line and I’ve been in Germany for almost TWO weeks and technically that’s not Austria but I can practically SEE it from here)
I remember when E. Ho used to work at this store in southgate they sold amazing walking shoes but my old agers won’t allow me to remember what the hell it was called. So all you people in blog land, name your favorite walking shoe! Good quality, price is no object (kidding, price is always a factor but I’m willing to shell out to protect the flat feet god gave me). Yesterday we spent a half day at the Heidelberg Castle which dates back to 1255 (is that the 11th century or the 13th? damn you Mr. CULLEN!!!!) It was a great day and the kids came back exhausted which is always a sign of a good day out. We were very cultured (except for the dash into Burger King when we realised it was 6:30 and we hadn’t fed the kids)
The view from the top of the castle is breathtaking.
I’m too lazy to reimport so turn your head sideways for this one, it’s worth it.
When I was little and my mother brought snacks on our days out, I used to be mortified. Now I’m the mom and I’m not paying 5 Euro for a sandwich for a 6 year old so this is where we ate our string cheese (yippee to the American PX ) and juice boxes…
Seriously imagine how much more charming I’d be if I spent my school field trips going here instead of the Forestry Farm and the Western Development museum!
This is outside the main Heidelberg station. Every bike imaginable is there. And there are little kids to Granny’s riding everywhere. I can’t wait for my bike to get here!
