A Sunday Evening Stroll Through Camden Town (London)

A fun place, Camden Town. Most of the markets and shops are open every day except 25 December. Roxi and I want to go back during the week when it’s not quite so busy, and when we have a bit more time for actual shopping (and no guys in our party, LOL!). I understand the […]

Mannequins in Camden Town (London)

We took a quick trip into Camden Town after the Peter White concert last Sunday. What a fascinating place! Roxi and I could spend hours and hours there. We definitely want to go back and have a girl day (shopping and lunch). This photo from my Wordless Wednesday post this week was taken in the Camden food […]

Fungi Foray-ish (England)

Mr. DJ, Trudy and I went on a walk on Sunday. Mr. DJ and Trudy were more interested in walking, while I got up close and personal with the mushrooms. They didn’t seem to mind. In fact, they actually were quite happy that all I wanted to do was take their photo. Eventually, Mr. DJ got […]

White Bordeaux, salami and prosciutto, brie, sharp English Cheddar, lemon and cilantro hummus, olives with feta, cheese bread, salt and pepper crisps, M&Ms, chocolate […]

Côte d’Azur: Antibes

I am not sure if it was the amazing weather or the stunning scenery, but we loved Antibes best of all the cities we visited on the French leg of our trip to the Riviera. To us, Antibes was the most “real” feeling–cozy cove beaches, a beautiful coastal walk, and a pretty but not pretentious […]

Netherlands: Keukenhof (Bulb Garden)

Finally! Finally, I got to see some much anticipated spring blooms in the Keukenhof garden here in the Netherlands. We had planned to visit this garden with Mr. DJ’s parents and some friends from London, but only my father-in-law was lucky enough to make it here before the airports were shut down because of the […]

Padlocks of Love in Koln, Germany

Remember this bridge? It’s the Hohenzollernbrücke Bridge that crosses the Rhine river in Cologne, Germany. Here’s a really cool aerial shot of it. Remember that YouTube video I linked to a couple of days ago showing this bridge destroyed during WWII? Back then it was a railway and street bridge. Anyway, reconstruction of this bridge […]
