Hey all! As promised, for my next few WIAWs I’m going to be featuring some of the fun things the hubby and I ate while on our recent honeymoon in Europe. We were there a total of 26 days and traveled through 14 cities: London, Paris, Cologne, Berlin, Prague, Budapest, Vienna, Munich, Padua, Venice, Florence, Rome, Madrid, and Barcelona. I won’t be sharing photos of EVERYTHING I ate because you probably would get tired of that–and because the hubby got tired of me stopping to take photos (like a total tourist) of everything I was eating!!
I don’t have any photos of our London food because our time there was a bit of a blur, but here’s the rundown for Paris!
First, a dinner at a cafe near our train station. We of course had to go all cliche and get some wine and an assortment of meats and cheeses. The meat was a little greasy for me but it was a fun experience nonetheless.
For dessert I had to have some crepes. They were served with bananas and ice cream, and all just drowning in chocolate syrup. The hubby asked for the special that night, a puff-type pastry with strawberries.
Okay, so you have to promise me you won’t tell the hubby about the next two photo. I was debating about whether or not I’d share them, because by the time I took the photos I had already ripped into them like a tiger with a big piece of steak (that’s what I resemble when I see sweets). But I didn’t think I could post anything about Paris without sharing something about their pastries.
The first thing I tried was kind of like what I’d compare to the kuchen I grew up having in North Dakota: Kind of like a custard pie that’s topped with fruit, except with a soft crust made of sweet bread dough. This one had apples and slivered almonds in it.
Apparently I couldn’t get enough apples in Paris, because my next pastry was an apple tart.
Last, had to share a couple of Eiffel tower shots. It actually started raining right before we got there, but it made for a beautiful and romantic atmosphere.
Next time we’ll be venturing to Cologne, Germany. Can’t wait to show you what we found there! Until then–
Keep in touch and keep it real!
