Have you ever been to The Loire Valley? In my previous post, I told you that I would be visiting that historical part of the French countryside. Now it’s time to tell you how it was.
After the Paris craziness, I was supposed to rest in the French countryside… but I didn’t get to. This was because I had a very specific itinerary to follow in The Loire Valley. First, I was directed to visit a different village each day. Second, I was supposed to spend each night at a different hotel. That may sound funny, but the journey was filled with sights of prettiness. The only thing that I didn’t really like from the whole adventure was that I had to carry my heavy luggage every morning from one train station to the next one. That, believe me, wasn’t fun at all. Apart from that, everything else was great. Let me give you some tips before you travel to The Loire Valley. At the very least, this will give you some ideas if you are still looking for a holiday destination. The Loire Valley is only one and a half hours away from Paris by train. Therefore you could probably combine a city trip with an escape to the countryside. Check out the following route: from Paris to Orleans, Beaugency, Blois, Amboise, and the beautiful city of Tours. In the city of Blois check out the castle Chambord and in the city of Tours don’t miss a visit at the castle of Chenonceau.
In order to do all this, you need a pair of comfortable shoes that you can wear all day. I would suggest that you take just one pair of shoes with you because as I mentioned before, carrying heavy luggages every day isn’t something you want to do. You need to have one pair with you that matches well with all your outfits. For me, that pair of shoes is the white moccasin from the Humanic store. Be sure that the white/beige color matches with everything. Besides, the style of that kind of shoes is something between sporty and elegant, which will give you plenty of flexibility to go with your daily ensembles. As for the bag, one that is made of straw would be perfect to match with the shoes. A straw bag is also ideal for a countryside style so that you match with your surroundings (I also love this one by the way). As you can tell, I am bringing my Humanic shoes to every place that I travel! Next stop: Florence!
