As we all know, suitcases contain treasured space so I want to take enough but not too much clothing. I'll be in Dublin, Paris and London for 9 days all up.
I will take one good waterproof thick long wool coat, long sleeve tops and a few scarves. I'll probably buy another coat/jacket along the way anyway.
My main concern is shoes.
I don't mind looking like a tourist, I'm there to enjoy the sights, so would runners be ok? I'm thinking their soles would be great but they will get wet in the rain and slush and they won't be able to dry. Do I need to buy waterproof shoes for such a short trip? They seem quite expensive and not nice looking (for reuse in Melbourne). I have a few pairs of black boots but I'd guess they are not waterproof, not slush proof anyway.
What shoes do Europeans wear during winter?
