Aperitif

Michelin Star La Chèvre d'Or gourmet. Tragically I became so full I could not enjoy the final cheese course , they had a cart of about 20 amazing looking cheeses. So sad, must go back.

The race track was still up from the Grand Prix in Monte Carlo, very cool. Too bad we had to drive the speed limit.

Private wine tasting at Grand Boise. Behind me the Chateau built in 1610 and up the hill walls built by the Romans. Under my feet? Cloud 9.

A` la prochain

With our one-year wedding anniversary in a couple weeks I can’t help but reminisce about our glamorous honeymoon. I met Shaun in Paris, he was there for a conference, and we stayed through the romantic rainy weekend to dine and shop.
Next stop Aix-en Provence, Shaun had a meeting, so it was a few days really, before starting the honeymoon in Nice. Then on to my favorite stop. A weekend in Eze, France. We stayed at the fabulous Chateau De Chevre D'Or…it was so hard to leave. Shaun and I then took a little road trip along the Cote d’ Azur with a stop in Monte Carlo to lunch at the famous 'Café de Paris' to watch the luxury sport cars pull up to The Casino de Monte-Carlo. Shaun was in total guy heaven. Then, off to Italy we went. We stayed in the small, charming village of Camogli. From there we spent time in the very popular and often 'pinned' Portofino. Before heading home we spent a few days in Aix-en Provence . One of the highlights was a day trip to the winery at Grand Boise. Not only was the wine amazing, it was educational(did you know in France and other "Old World" countries they do not use irrigation in viticulture) and the views of Mount St. Victoire breath taking. So breath taking in fact, Cezanne painted this vast eye-candy over and over. I wish I could do it all again.
