Amsterdam Drinks: Foodhallen: Gin&Tonic Bar

Wandering around Amsterdam, you can work up an appetite. Luckily, S had done some research on where to eat and discovered the Foodhallen.

Barcelona Drinks: Caravelle

Barcelona Drinks: Caravelle

Last month, one of my trips was a whirl wind, spur of the moment sort of trip to Barcelona. Some friends had begged me to come down and visit them, so while I was still jet lagged from my last trip, I booked a new one and flew down to the sunshine for a few … Continue reading

Paris Eats: La Parenthese

Paris Eats: La Parenthese

S has a passion for sandwiches. Like really. He makes a mean toasted cheese sandwich with multiple types of cheeses. It took some adjustment in my mind to make these sandwiches in a frying pan as opposed to in a sandwich maker… but it was soo yummy when he finished 🙂  So imagine his delight … Continue reading

London Eats: Giraffe

So this one isn’t really in London, although technically it is. I have been travelling for about a month in the States and Germany before returning back to Paris. It wasn’t originally planned that way but the result was time in Seattle, with some great friends and ended up having an almost 6 hour layover … Continue reading
