Quantcast

Where am I going next?

I do my very best to keep moving all the time. Here’s a list of where I’m going next:

2014

OCTOBER

  • Canadian/US West Coast
    I will be attending the Food Bloggers of Canada conference in Vancouver (can’t wait!). E and Baby J will tag along so we can have fun in this city we enjoy getting to know more and more. Since family and friends are closeby on the US West Coast, we’ll hop to Seattle, then California too.

Curious about where I’ve been lately? Here’s a short list.

2014

AUGUST

  • France: Paris, Brittany
    I think it’s obvious by now that we can’t stay away from Paris for too long. It seems like an obvious choice for a first overseas trip with bébé, although we’re a bit nervous to find out how he’s going to will deal with jetlag! We’ll spend a little over a week in Paris, then travel to Brittany with friends. I can’t wait to indulge in the region’s many famous delicacies!

APRIL

  • Miami
    For our first trip with baby, we went the safe route and travelled to sunny Miami. Which doesn’t mean we didn’t eat well! In fact, we indulged in some of the best gourmet lunches we ever had. Perfect to fight the end-of-winter blues, and easy to fly to from our hometown.

DECEMBER

AUGUST

  • California Coast
    My good friend Melanie got married on a winery and we seized the opportunity to extend the trip and go on a little road trip along the California Coast.

MAY

  • Paris
    Finally went to Paris with my Mom. I had been dreaming about this for a really long time!

APRIL

  • San Francisco
    This year’s International Association of Culinary Professionals conference is held in San Francisco, so I simply could not miss it. I was hungry to continue exploring the city’s delights and I wasn’t disappointed. Plus, I got to meet with old friends and meet new ones, I attended very inspiring conferences and I even enjoyed a food tour of the Mission District. It was a dream of a food-focused trip!
  • Saba
    Well deserved vacations with E on Saba, a little island off the coast of St. Maarten that belongs to the Netherlands. Saba is renowned for offering some of the best diving in all of the Caribbeans and it is a hiker’s paradise, thanks to its well-designed, marked and maintained hiking trails that allow visitors to explore the island’s unspoiled flora and fauna.

2012

DECEMBER

  • Paris
    Ah Paris… It always feels good to go back. We spent a leisurely 10 days for New Year’s, wandering to our favorite places, visiting inspiring exhibitions, enjoying our favorite treats and celebrating with friends. Oh, and I went back to my favorite passage in Paris, Le Passage du Grand Cerf, for a little shopping fix too.

OCTOBER

  • Seattle, San Francisco & Sacramento
    Visited my brother in Seattle, then flew to San Francisco for my first-ever visit there! I was very excited and the city lived up to the expectations. We rented an apartment through AirBnB in the Mission and loved feeling like locals, even for a few days. We then drove to Sacramento to visit good friends who had just moved to the area, and spent a sunny day in Sonoma County for wine tastings.

MAY/JUNE

  • Venice & Copenhagen
    To celebrate our 10th anniversary, E and I went Europe to visit two very different but very interesting destinations. In Venice, we joined two good friends who know the city like the back of their hands. We rented an apartment together in the San Palo neighborhood, so we shopped at the Rialto Market daily to prepare feasts in our own Venetian kitchen. I loved this second visit so much that it inspired me to write up my 10 Reasons Why You Should Go to Venice. We also visited the colorful island of Burano and snacked on chichetti everyday.
    In Copenhagen, we’ve spent some romantic time together, touring the city and tasting the much-celebrated Nordic cuisine. No, we didn’t get a booking at Noma, but we ate amazingly every day, and had an out-of-this-world tasting menu at Michelin-starred Geranium. It’s the best restaurant experience I ever had.

    We spent a very relaxing week under the Yucatan sun, enjoying long walks on the beach and feasted on tortillas and tacos and (very spicy!) habanero sauce.

  • Rhode Island/Cape Cod
    We will drive down to Rhode Island, which we’ve been wanting to visit for a very long time, had a really good time and a lot of pork.  We also fell in love with Nantucket, Massachusetts.
  • Montreal
    We attended the (famous) “secret” event, Dîner en blanc. Over 3,000 people dressed up in white, brought a picnic and gathered to eat, drink and be merry.
