Sightseeing in Pink Heels

I went to visit the Acropolis at the end of March for the first time. Fascinating to be there with a fantastic view over the city. However, the whole hill and most paths around it consist of quite slippery smooth rock and I was happy to be wearing trainers.

I was impressed and amused when I spotted the lady below in her pink heels, wobbling around in slow motion supported by a friend, both trying not to lose grip.

On my way down the hill I spotted her again when she photographed street art. I think it took her forever to make her way down as this was less than 5 minutes from the exit and I had been sitting in the sun for a good hour before I met her there.

I like to wear nice dresses but definitely comfortable shoes with them. Would you go sightseeing in heels?

The 90s are Back

On my first day in Athens I was enjoying the mid-February sun in the park in Kypseli. After Iceland it felt like a warm summer day to me, when I spotted this girl and her dog.

I had to take a picture of her, because I haven’t seen these kind of plateau shoes in action since the Spice Girls. Turns out they are quite popular here. Maybe because the average Greek girl is rather short…? I think there are some fashion trends that should stay dead. Those shoes are one of them.
