And so glad to be.

It rained non-stop in the Netherlands and Germany. But I'm not complaining, I love northern Europe; it just feels- comfortable, relaxing.

Frankfurt- my 1st time in Europe since creation of the Euro-zone

Rome was breathtakingly beautiful.

Monaco was gorgeous. And unbelievably expensive. I'm not sure any real people live there.

My hotel is visible in this pic, but I did not have a sea-view

I'm home through most of January, and I'll be back to posting recipes over the next two months (hopefully.)

After that I'm back up to Seattle for another week; more on my developing love/infatuation with that city soon.

If you're curious for more check Flickr for pictures from my travels, I've almost finished uploading my SE Asia pictures, finally.

In the meantime, Rome:

Seriously fucking gorgeous folks


Where am I?

After this I'll be home through the new year!
