It's taken me nearly 12 months of this lockdown to start feeling rested enough to miss our old life. I'm not complaining - we live in a beautiful place and don't want for anything and are getting enough work online to keep us going. But I am really starting to miss getting out on the road, meeting people, performing live on stage and above all sampling food in the different countries we visit. So today I'm joining in with Kate's blog for another scavenger hunt prompt - Delicious - and a wee trip around some of our journeys.
Looking back over my photographs I'd not noticed before how big a part food plays in travelling and even in our day to day socialising.
From the bratwurst at a stand in Germany to coffee at a terrasse cafe in France, or a beer under a heated lamp in mid winter in Holland, or Kaffee and Kuchen with friends on an afternoon off, or cake in Denmark or a really good curry in England or the best fish and chips I've ever tasted in Shetland, or even just an ice cream beside the seaside taking my mother to Bundoran. I've not not got photos for all of these but so many of our memories are tied up with food that I can understand now why the early days of Facebook were so populated with pictures of people's dinners. (Disclaimer here: I'm usually too busy eating to remember to photograph food, so it's not surprising most of these are of desserts when there was time to relax).
Take care of yourselves - and you can see what others have written about for this prompt HERE.
