While hanging out with a new found friend in Istanbul and sharing pieces of our lives, this blog came up in the conversation and the need to try as many traditional Turkish foods as possible during my short stay. Rushing off to get a couple for each of us to try, I sunk my spoon…

Traveling with my father has meant that I’ve been the teacher and he has been the student of sorts, there are many things that become secondhand when you’ve been through many cities at different times on your own. That level of responsibility on my own shoulders means a lot of things are naturally falling right…

Blueberry Smash

    Now my hubby wants me to cook tacos all the time. 🙂 I’ll try this recipe for him.

    I absolutely love your blog, you have the best pictures I’ve seen.

These are kind of addictive and if you have a large enough piece of steak, you can marinade one for one day and another for two days in the juice because this is the kind of dinner you’ll want again. I’d love to hear how yours turn out and thanks for the kind words regarding my photos.
      Have a wonderful day.ReplyCancel

April 2015 – Saw/Ate/Read

April was the month where two people came to visit, in fact, one of them is still over this side of the world as we set off on some father/daughter adventures. There was some wonderful London sights to see and what has to be the pinnacle of seeing the locals in action was the Tweed…
