When we travel to a foreign country, we have noticed that walking is the order of the day. Even in countries where taxicab is available, it can't be helped but to walk most of the time. And when you get sore feet, the vacation will definitely be ruined. My husband had developed blisters before so that is a neat lesson to us. When we had to walk great distances, we take our time so as not to abuse the feet and we can still enjoy the sights even when we are tired.
