Oh the Wonders I’ve Seen…

.

Roses, Hotel Costes in Paris last week.

.

Hi there! Remember me??

I’ve had another grand adventure and finally back home to put pen to paper, so to speak.

.

In Lisbon, I found some of the most beautifully cobbled  streets in the world. (Sorry Prague :()

.

Traveled by an old wooden boat through the Douro wine region of Portugal

.

.

Devoured Portugal’s famous egg custard tarts for breakfast and dessert

Every day.

No, seriously, every day.

You only live once. Reason enough to visit Portugal.

..

Experienced a true Princess Moment (albeit on a shockingly bad hair day)

.

Learned about Lusitano horses and wine…

.

The procedure for uncorking very old bottles of port

.

and, as always, continued my quest to find the World’s Worst Dessert.

So far, no luck.

.

We hobnobbed with jockeys

.

A bag in the Longchamp shop on Rue St. Honore’

Did a wee bit of shopping in Paris (It was Fashion Week after all :) )

Saw Kate Moss twice in one night

.

and enjoyed some world class people watching…

all of which I’ll share with you over the next few weeks.

Just as soon as I get unpacked and plow through the mountain of mail that faithfully greets the weary, wine-soaked traveler.

.

Despite the grey skies, it’s nice to be home.

I’ve missed you!
