Back to reality

Hello everyone!

My holiday ended in the blink of an eye but boy, was it FABULOUS!

I am however royally knackered! The excessive indulging coupled with not a lot of sleep (fear of missing out on any part of the holiday perhaps?) meant I came home with a throat so sore it felt sandpapered. Oh and I also have a dance performance in Philadelphia coming up this weekend. 

Please allow me a few days to recover. 

In the meantime, I shall leave you with some initial observations...:

  • Basque weddings are INCREDIBLE. My darling friend, TTL and her husband, X's wedding festivities lasted over 15 hours and I probably danced for half of that. 
  • San Sebastian is so beautiful and Donostians are some of the loveliest people I have ever met.
  • I ate my weight in macarons, chocolates, icecream, cheese and croissants in Paris; and promptly walked it all off.
  • I can't stand the incessant smoking everywhere in the City of Light. Is this why the French are so slim?
  • The Jardins (Luxembourg and Tuileries) put the New York City parks to shame. 
  • European men are delightfully charming ;)

...and a few of my favourite Instagram photos from the trip. Forgive me if you have already seen these already:

I look forward to posting details of the trip soon. Till then ta ta for now! 

P.s. this is my 100th post!
