Euro Travels, Part I

28 days of butter, bread, cheese, wine, croissant, younameit galore, later...
I'm back! I'm back in the land of iced coffee to-go and real, working, legit air conditioning :)
I've left behind a land of 2 hour espresso respites and even longer lunch breaks, red wine that makes a wino out of me, cheese that makes..wait I already was a cheesemonger but you get the picture, and an air of simplicity that makes me want to pack my packs and set up camp over there.
And so before I detox for the next, um, lifetime, I want to share what the heck I was doing and seeing EATIN' for the past month...
(sparing you a picture-sharing overload we'll do this in installments)
