More time off Work is what she deserves?
And so it happens. We go from working crazy hours to having nothing to do and being given unplanned time off. What better time to catch up with family and friends in Europe? Especially as air fares are so low in November and we don't have to worry about paying for hotels. Halloween will spent be near Dublin with the kids. Then its off to Bristol to see my mum and dad. If we are lucky, I think we might get to go to Thornbury Castle again. In London, we will be catching up with old friends down the pub in Soho (followed by a curry, of course). New friends feature strongly on the itenarary too and if everything goes according to plan we should make quite a few of those too on this trip. After lunch with the British Food Bloggers, we'll be heading to my old hood, Greenwich. The timing is absolutely perfect because I will get to spend the 400th anniversary of one of my favourite British Celebrations of the year. I am excited about that, believe me.
From London, it's off to Paris, where we hope to make even more new friends. Other than that, it's up to Fred. I am not sure where will end up, although I am certain a trip to Le Sancerre goes without saying. I'll try and squeeze in one or two blogs before we start our travels on Sunday, then after that we'll be intermittently publishing food stories, on the road, as and when WiFi connections allow.
These photographs were taken at Cheddar Farmer's Market, on my last trip to the UK, in March.
|Archive Alert! On this Friday last year we went to our first ever food bloggers meet up at Vino Venue where I met Amy, Alaina, Alder, Fatemeh, Heidi and Derrick for the first time and Pim for the second time.|
