Subject: Introduction - New Member Needing Advice for Europe Trip
Hi Kathy, I, too, am a grandma and recently traveled to Belgium for three weeks. I used a Patagonia MLC #48103 which was like Rick Steves' rucksack. I carried a total of 22# and was very comfortable using it as a backpack and not carrying it over one shoulder. It is very easy to put on my back and even has a strap to attach it to your waist. The luggage w/wheels is okay but what about using the wheels on cobblestones? Wouldn't recommend tennis shoes. The only people I saw wearing them were American tourists. I love my Ecco Walkers and have a pair I bought specifically for travel. In addition, I carry a pair of Dr. Scholl's inserts in my purse and about mid-day I put them inside my shoes and it's as if my feet were walking on clouds.... Margo in Western North Carolina
