cheers & au revoir

One week from today I will be touring the streets on London with my wonderful husband- sans kids!

We will be having high tea at the Brown’s Hotel 

and taking a private photography class from Hairy Goat– learning how to take professional photos of the sites and scenery of London.  *squee*

After a few days in London we will take the train over to– Paris!!

Where I plan on eating lots of Crepes & Macaroons while sipping coffee at the local cafe.

I’ve even scoped out some thrift stores where the locals shop for designer goods.  Can you say hello Chanel suit? or maybe a pair of Louboutin’s?

I am beside myself with glee and can’t wait to come back and share all the pics with you.  
Have you been to London or Paris?  any tips or must-see places?  And does anyone know of great restaurants that are vegetarian friendly?  I may just live on wine, cheese and croissants while in Paris.

    Hi Amanda

    How exciting and I am so jealous. I am a Londoner now living in Florida and know you are going to have a fab time. I am vegetarian and recomnend a couple of good restaurants in central London. One is Food For Thought on Neal Street…great atmosphere and a good choice of food. Also Sagar Indian restaurant on Catherine St has some amazing Indian goodies. Both are in the Covent Garden area that has a wonderful outdoor market and some a vast selection of upmarket and reasonably priced shops. Also if you like Chinese food, Chinatown in Soho has some really nice veggie dishes.

    The National gallery is my fave place to visit but if you want any other suggestions for food or places to see email me.

    Amanda – Have been to both cities many times. Our favorite museums in Paris – Rodin museum & De i’Orangerie. Also a wonderful little true Parisian spot to eat is La Varangue Philippe’s Restaurant. It is at 27 rue Augereau in the 7th. Philippe is wonderful – cooks, serves & entertains. Bon voyage!!
