Market meandering

Market meandering

I love the fresh produce markets we’ve encountered on our travels to Europe. One of my favourites is the Marché Bastille in Paris.  From the Place de la Bastille (where the Colonne de Juillet stands in the center) long lines of stalls with colourful canopies […]

Cabbage, Orange and Apple salad

Cabbage, Orange and Apple salad

  Having grown up in a home where red meat was the order of the day most days, and veg were limited to potatoes, cauliflower and broccoli, it is no wonder that I am not a big fan of salads.  Either that, or I am […]

Memento

Memento

Being from the southern tip of Africa meant that it was about a 24 hour journey before we finally arrived in the beautiful little town of Praiano, on the Amalfi Coast of Italy.  The last stretch of the trip was done by bus from Sorrento, […]

Travel, laugh, encourage, eat

Travel, laugh, encourage, eat

I hope you like travelling, because then you will know why I have fallen in love with it.  And I could tell you about all our favourite places Hubby and I have discovered.  We haven’t travelled much internationally.  Wait, that’s not true. We have just not travelled […]

What’s in a name?

What’s in a name?
