On June 27th I've been a blogger for 4 years. Time got away from me to post that day, but I still love using this place as a creative outlet and sharing my travels and food adventures. I really thought this blog would be more about food, but when I took an edit of the site I realized I post more travel adventures then food. Which makes sense as travel logs are my favorite types of books to read.
Here's a few I keep going back too and recommend. And yes E I do read my books more then once and thus I do need a bookshelf (more to come on that later).
I follow David's blog and now on twitter....he is hilarious.
A great view on what it's really like to live in Paris.
Another book I re-read just about every summer. I want to buy a house is Tuscany in another life.
I've read most of Frances Mayes books all are very good: Bella Tuscany, A Year in the World: Journeys of A Passionate Traveller and recently read Every Day in Tuscany: Seasons of an Italian Life.
Recently I discovered Bill Bryson. I read A Walk in the Woods and laughed out loud so I just picked up the book above, Notes from a Small Island. And again, I lay in bed laughing out loud.
And finally Peter Mayle. I tried to read this book in my early twenties when I was just started my advertising career. I wasn't into it. Give myself a number of years later and I reread this book and loved it. Peter is an old ad guy moved to Provence and writes a witty tale. I've read just about everything he's wrote Encore Provence: New Adverntures in the South of France, Toujours Provence, French Lessons: Adventures iwth Knife, Fork, and Corkscrew and one of my favorites A Good Year, also love this movie with Russell Crow and Marion Clotilde.
I personally hope to find new fun reads and enjoy yet another year posting away and snapping pictures of interesting things I see and hear. Thanks to the very few followers for coming by to check up on the adventures.
