We’re Going To Rome..

a picture of coffee seemed apt, 
this was actually a shockingly bad cup in a cafe in London, hoping for much better in Rome. 

This time next week we’ll have just landed in Rome and all ready for a much needed holiday.

I’d love some recommendations from my readers of places to go, and very much more importantly, places to eat. We’re staying in the Trastevere area which seems to be the place to be for interesting shops and restaurants.

Any tips gratefully received. 🙂


The first leg of our honeymoon was Amsterdam, somewhere I’ve wanted to visit for a while.
The city was lovely, the buildings very much what I had imagined and very picturesque indeed. We took a boat tour and saw lots of the sights and learnt about the history.

And we did go for pancakes too at the Pancake Bakery! Absolutely huge dinner plate size pancakes topped with anything you can imagine.

Foodie wise the Pancake Bakery was excellent but you must also visit Tempo Doeloe, an Indoniesian restaurant in Amsterdam, brilliant food and very popular – we had the goat!
