We were recently on vacation in New York city and we did a lot of walking. I got the first blister I have had since I was about 13 years old. When was the last time you had a blister on your foot?

Ow that would really hurt. Rabbits completely destroyed my garden this year. They literally ripped out every plant I had except for one basil plant. I was so made. We are having a really bad dry spell and extreme heat here so I didn't bother replacing the plants. I will try again next year.

Ouch is right! I actually had a blister on my foot a few weeks ago. I have these hard flip flops - kinda leathery-ish - and my foot was not used to these as I usually have the flimsy kind. Well, we moved and I couldn't find my usual flimsy ones as I stashed them in some box, but I found the hard ones. The top of my feet hurt because, especially on the sides. So I ended up getting a small blister on the sides where it was rubbing against the strap. Hate that!

I got a blister on my foot last time, when I went for a long on-foot tour many miles away. It was a tour in which we were about 500 people. It hurt a lot. But I still made myself ready to walk the next day.

I had to do a lot of walking the next day too so I treated it the best I could and it wasn't too bad the next day.

I am in the midst of planning a trip to NYC myself. However, I have a problem walking, so I'll be looking for a wheelchair somewhere. As fir blisters, I tried to walk s bit too much in Denmark in 1990, and the stupid thing got infected. It was like I was growing another big toe!!! So no more major walking from me. Would you please send me a message and tell me what you liked the best?

Well if you go to New York you have to go to Time Square. It gets really crowded there so you might want to go there in the early morning, avoid going there at lunch time, and at 9:00 AM or 5:00 in the evening it is crazy busy at that time and getting around in a wheel chair may be difficult. Central Park is very nice and a lot less crowded than the streets, the paths are perfect and you should have no problem with the wheel chair there, although there is one part where you have to go down a steep set of stairs but there are several paths you can go down so you can avoid those. I highly suggest taking a boat tour, you will get to see the Statue of Liberty and all of the bridges that way. I have also heard that Museum of Natural History is amazing but we did not go there, I really wanted to but my husband didn't. There are many amazing musicals there but they are very expensive. We went and saw Wicked which was excellent but for our family of five to go it cost us $780. Wicked is one of the most expensive ones though. Matinee day seems to be Wednesday so if you want to pay a bit less for a show plan on going on a Wednesday. Be prepared though those matinees let out at around 5:00 to avoid massive crowds you might want to have dinner at a restaurant near the theater and sit back and relax until 6:30 or so.

Actually last week, I love these pair of sandals that I have but sometimes if I walk too much in them, I get a blister. It is strange because the shoes are just about worn out.
