Travelling Gourmet!

Tarte au Citron in Patisserie Valerie in Canterbury  
I am now back to normal everyday life (whatever that is?)...
and it is a whole week since my mother and baby sister left us to return home to Oz...

Pistachio Loaf with Mascarpone in Caffe Espresso at Harrod's

Meal on Eurostar "Leisure Select" travelling to Paris
My husband and I had a great time taking them here, there and everywhere and we all had a great time eating our way around the country!
