Weekly Wonder: Socks in the Louvre

01 March 2013

In general, I tried to maintain a nice appearance while studying abroad in France. I mean, this is the city of fashion. I often wore heels no matter how long I'd be standing that day because, ya know, I just wanted to look so chic. Well, I met my match when I went to the Louvre. I just couldn't bear standing in my heels for hours while trying to enjoy the art so eventually I ditched them and put them in my purse. My friend gave me the socks off his very feet so it would look like I was walking around in small, black shoes. Hopefully no one noticed!

Do you have any embarrassing travel stories like this?
