Road Trip Reflections

Ciao Readers!

Did you miss me?  Well, I think you’ll find it was worth the wait.  Over the past week we took a fabulous “road trip” (can you call it a road trip if you travel by train?) and several hundred photos along the way.  It’s going to take me a while to organize my thoughts and photos, so for now I’ll give you a sneak preview of both…

Of course I have tales of wonderful places and experiences (the Orsay Museum in Paris, the free Wednesday lunchtime concert at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam).  And, you know since it’s me there’s gotta be food (from herring and french cheeses to hot Thai curry and an American grocery store!).  However, in addition to all of the fun and deliciousness to be had, there were also deep thoughts thrown in for good measure.  Traveling to other places in Europe really helped to put Florence in perspective, as well as my feelings about, and approach to, living here.  So, while I gather my thoughts I’ll leave you with just a little pictorial “taste” of things to come….

  1. How was the burrito? Only because I am dying for Mexican do I understand you had a burrito in Paris. But I like beef tartar more than mexican.

  2. Interesting! Also, I was just in Paris myself a few weeks ago, at the d’Orsay! 🙂 Loved it, will look for the future posts (also because I haven’t been to Amsterdam and am looking forward to photos/thoughts!)

    Apart from the cucumbers, the burrito “looks” authentic! 🙂

  4. Toto, I don’t think we’re in Florence any more…
