We're Back from Europe!!!

WOW...have I got a lot to share with you!!! Brad and I just returned from our 2 week journey across Europe. It was absolutely incredible. We did so much and saw so many things, that it just blows my mind. We started in Paris and then went to Germany. Next, we spent a week in Italy traveling from Venice to Florence and then Rome.
What a journey! I'm going to share all the details with you right here on my blog. This week, I'll begin making a post for each day that we were there. I'll start with Day 1 in Paris, and share tons of photos and details about the trip. Brad and I took over 4,100 photos!!! Once they are edited and ready for the web, I'll start posting them. We took photos of everything...the entire trip is documented - from the food we ate to the places we saw. And the food...oh, the food!!! I have an entire list of dishes that I can't wait to recreate. Of course, I'll post those recipes along the way too.

I look forward to sharing our trip with you!

Thank you everyone! :)

Geraldine - Bonjour! I only speak a little bit of French. I had so much fun speaking the language while in Paris. I studied and learned a good bit before we went, but I picked up a lot while we were there also. Are you French?

Géraldine said...

Geraldine - Enchante! It's a pleasure to meet you. I can honestly say that France was my favorite place we visited. My husband and I quickly fell in love with Paris. We cannot wait to go back!

I found your blog...I love it! Your recipes all look fantastic.

One of our favorite meals in Paris was at Les Deux Magots - we had the Quiche Lorraine. Do you know of a good recipe for this? I'd like to try to make it.


Géraldine said...

Thank you very much Celeste! No problem for the recipe of the Quiche Lorraine, let me a little time to translate it in english; I will send you by email if you want.
A bientôt!!
