I’m sharing some shoe brands with you that make stylish shoes that won’t kill your feet after a few miles. I own shoes from each brand I’ve mentioned below, so consider them my personal recommendations that are perfect for trips with lots of walking. 😉

We took our very first hot air balloon ride above the town of Chinon and I’d recommend it to anyone. Be sure to scroll to the end of the post for a fun video I made of our ride.
