They lasted a long time now, one of their notable acheivements include carrying me to passing the Student Challenge in 2005, being the bane of my sisters shoe fashionista existence (right now she is probably rejoicing that these have bit the dust).

In the end they were coming apart at the edges cutting up my feet and being an overall pain. They were replaced today by these shoes. Adidas…sorry Callan and Phoebe the 125 Euro Nikes didn’t seem all that practical.

I also went shopping for some warmer clothes for this decidely brisk change in weather here in Berlin. The place was called Humana, its the biggest thrift store in Europe I’m told.

Now I’m up a comfy sweater and a sweet scarf. Figuring out how to tetris all this stuff into my bag for Spain and Greece I will leave for another day.

Oh yes, Canadians be warned. Nobody knows what a toque is…its a “winter hat” if you ever go shopping for one. I am still looking for one of decent quality.

    I have no idea what a toque is but in the photo you’re wearing a beanie.

    Ah, I was told it was a “winter hat”. That beanie I grabbed in Switzerland, it seems to be getting smaller and smaller as the days go by.

    Awesome blog so far dude – It’s nice to see that you’re getting out there and really experiencing as much as you can rather than ‘wasting’ all your time trying to keep everyone up to speed. ‘Beanie’, lol. Is Canada the only country that calls a toque a toque??

    PS – I’m completely jealous so far! šŸ˜›
