Safety versus Appearance in Paris

Jump to last reply

So something has to give. My wife and I are flying on points to Paris in May for our anniversary - I think it's our 22nd. I have a purple fanny pack which I have mentioned on other threads. I will use that because petty street crime can be bad in Paris. On the other hand I like to wear tennis shorts, white tennis shorts, when I am travelling. Very roomy and comfortable. And I am a big tennis fan dating back to Rod Laver days.

Some friends were saying that I look like a dork wearing white shorts and a purple fanny pack. If I am going to do that they are insisting I put a small US flag on my fanny pack, sort of the reverse of what usually happens with Americans putting a Canadian flag on their backpacks. But I don't want to misrepresent myself. Personal integrity is important to me.

So something has to give. Should I leave the purple fanny pack or the white tennis shorts behind (rather than on my behind) on this trip?
