Review | Birkenstocks; shoes to wander the world in!

With less than a week to go until my Trek America trip the preparations are in full swing! Hopefully you've seen my Hand Luggage post, that bag is all packed and ready to go just waiting a few last minute additions! I'm constantly thinking about packing my suitcase and watching all the videos I can find on YouTube. I've got lists for everything coming out of my ears and I'm lapping up any information I can get in relation to my upcoming travels! 

I'm in love with Victoria from In the frow's channel and she has some excellent packing and travel tips that I've written down and am using to pack my case!! I've also read all of Monica from The Travel Hack's posts on trek America and am constantly bugging poor Rosie from A Rosie Outlook for her experiences and advice! I'm a woman possessed!  

One vital preparation I have made is ensuring I've got the right shoes. It sounds stupid but it would be tragic to travel halfway across the world to explore exciting cities and new places only to moan half way round because I've got blisters! With that in mind I headed to Schuh for some comfortable yet stylish sandals. 

Enter my perfect Birkenstocks! These are the Rio 2 style in white with an ankle strap in addition to the iconic slider style toe strap. I wanted a sturdy pair that would look good walking round San Francisco but I could also explore the national parks without fear of breaking an ankle, getting a blister or losing my shoes and these fit the bill perfectly. I'm not sure why I went for white, as I'm definitely more of a black accessories girl but actually I'm really happy with them and have worn them loads! They go with everything and are seriously comfortable. Like, seriously -I could hike up a mountain in these -comfortable. 

Birkenstocks are really well made and are timeless in style so I know these will last me for years to come. I'm excited to wander the world in these!
