I think it is official – we can call ourselves “Snowbirds”. The weather starts getting cold and we are outta here, north to warmer climes. We are partaking of some of the usual spots: Paris for a month, and day trips out of that wonderful city, with a foray into England for a wedding (who doesn't?). From there we will be travelling for a month around La Belle France, visiting old and new places. In September, we will be heading into Greece for a month with visits to a couple of islands and places Kevin wants to see. I have put in one request – Santorini – and my wish will be coming true.

We will, all during this time, be visiting friends (lots!) and family, and, of course, eating. Which is where I come in. Lots of fun restaurants, some that are our favorites, and a couple of new ones, including one where a family friend will be cheffing. And of course all the pictures that accompany....this year I will hold back on places that weren't so good, and will try and list websites or addresses for places we like.

And at the end of it all, I am hoping to have a list of loves and not so loves to sum it all up.

As usual, I hope you will enjoy our adventures, and can find some information of use. I enjoy doing them! Please make sure to leave feedback or make a comment...I like to know they are being read. A bientot! I will be back in about a week....
