I had my first mountain climb recently and it was a great experience. It could have been better if I had better shoes. Knowing what it feels like to climb, I have learned what I wanted.
I learned my lesson the hard way because during one of my travels I lost my money, atm cards and ID because I placed them all in my wallet. My friend told me that when you travel you must separate them so in case you lose one you still have some that you can use. So now I carry them in 3 containers. If you want to be more safe then you can place them where it is not obvious like inner bag pockets and socks. The point is to divide where you place them.
For me the best footwear for the beach must be light. Can protect your feet when swimming on a rocky area and from stingy creatures. It must look good with your clothes too so you don’t have to bring too many footwear for your photos. Can be removed fast so you can relax your feet. It must be waterproof.
