Shoes, scarves, sweaters and satchels

Thursday – Going on with my travel diary… just to remember the nice days I had in January, 2013… what can someone take to look  “adequate”, but still, be light on a trip through 8 countries for 17 days (Rally Holidays!) ?

In my case:

* 5 pairs of shoes. Wore 4 of them; * 3 sweaters/jumpers. Donated one on the 16th day; * 3 pairs of jeans. Wore 2; * 2 satchels. Given a bag at a shop later (shop’s gift);  * 2 scarves – one is reversible; * some headbands – that could be worn as scarves or belts; * 1 coat; * some accessories such as hair clips, rings, earrings, etc.

All tucked in one of the satchels and the small suitcase I use as hand luggage (and it’s so small, that it can almost be used as a normal bag/purse!)

* Shoes –  after saving 200 pairs on Shoeperwoman‘s fantastic challenge, it’s time to save the next 200 – I’m not joking, by the way. Yes, 400 pairs – can be a bit more, but not less. If only they were all with me now… what makes difficult to save them is the fact that  most of them are in another continent. But I’ll “meet” them in a while.

This week I was walking and a lady said out loud behind me "I love your shoes!" So nice!

As for the satchels… the floral blue one has maaaany stories to “tell” – it was coveted in 3 different places! A lady at the Louvre asking where I got it, then a girl who came after me with the same question in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and a shop owner in Colmar, France,  in order to sell it at his shop! Such a “successful” satchel!

It’s almost the end of my travel diary for January. Then February’s trips will start – but I guess it won’t take the whole March!  Up to the next post, I hope you all have a great day with many sweet smiles!

  1. Your travels sound so exciting! So many countries, what a grand adventure! 400 pairs! I am in awe of that number, its great to see that you have worn 200 of them. It was lovely seeing these photo memories of yours, I adore those pretty ballet flats and the last pair are wonderful, great colour! Hope you’re well sweety.
