The most ergonomic, health-wise sandals were purchased with ease thanks to toursit sign language, a friendly German shop assistant and the wonders of my credit card.

Friday 16 September: Shopping for sandals in Tauberbischofsheim
1 The pitstop at Tauberbishofsheim was a snap en route decision. It certainly did not include wine and asparagus but an early morning coffee at a open cafe. My main concern was the need to purchase a pair of stout German crafted sandals, suitable for foot-slogging over the cobbles. The climb through the vineyards to the castle at Wurzburg in South African-made sandals designed for a stylish trot around the mall had left me with blisters on the soles of my feet. Now sore feet can ruin an overseas trip in a jiffy and turn one into a most undesirable travelling companion, so I deemed a new pair of sandals a must.
