We are back from our holiday which went by in a flash! Our first few days off we spent them hanging out in Paris and last week we visited my parents in La Turbie, a small town located just minutes from Monaco. I was born in that mini country and lived there until the age of 12 so it was very special to go with L. for the first time and relive some of my childhood memories. Since the weather wasn't all that great and our little fella got very sick, we ended up spending a lot of time 'at home' -- though it was completely different from our home time spent in Paris because we had what we usually crave for the most as city folks: s.p.a.c.e! A house, a garden and a pool - what more could we ask for? That's right, scrumptious food I hear you say. Well Italy being less 20km away, we went crazy food shopping in Ventimiglia when we arrived and happily spent the week eating fresh pasta, juicy tomatoes, and 'real' mozzarela di buffala which we drowned in sunny olive oil. Hmm, time for a diet now.
