Looking back at old photos always brings back good memories. The other week I was flicking through some photos from my Euro Trip 2011 adventure and I realise it’s been almost 2 years. Sigh. As a way of reminiscing (yet again), I’ve decided to do a couple more posts on it, but this time including some of my food experiences.
In between all the reservations for breakfast, lunch and dinner there had to be several pitt stops made for some snacks. In this case, sweet snacks. I of course already have my list of places jotted down before we even land in the state.
Traveling between cities sure can get exhausting but you get caught up in the holiday excitement that keeps you going. Not only is it the things you get to see and do, but I think the eating adventures are just as fun and equally important. See what we got up to traveling from Sacramento to LA in just one day…..
IHOP – International House of Pancakes
While I was overseas, the infamous Laduree had opened in Westfield Sydney. I was bummed that I missed out on the opening but am also glad that I wasn’t here for the long queues that I had heard all about. Luckily for me, I could quickly duck down at any time during my working day and that I did.
ALOHAAAAAAAAAA! Hello and Goodbye at the same time! Thought this macaron photo would be appropriate as it represents the colours of the country I’ll be spending the next 3 weeks in. Follow me on instagram for where I’m going, what I’m doing and what I’m eating. I’ll see you soon, my friends!
Those who follow me on instagram would know I’ve been baking quite the bit lately. I’ve always had an interest in baking. Back in the high school days I would try to bake my girlfriends something for their birthday even if it meant out of a packet and asking my parents how to use the hand mixer and oven. So really, all I’d do is mix the ingredients and my parents would do the rest. Times have definitely changed.
I must say that being an Aunty has definitely ignited the bigger baking spark in me. Nothing beats baking and designing a personalised cake (or any other baked treats) for the ones you love most. A big thank you goes out to the Boy who supports me and helps me when I’m about to fall apart because things just don’t go to plan.
It’s time to show you some of the things I’ve made over the past months….
