Bon Apétit – 2013

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Tim and I are grateful for the joys that 2012 brought us, and especially for our new friends from all over the world!  The Wall Street Journal article, which was  published in October,  brought over 2600 new subscribers to this blog, and our correspondence with  you has enriched our lives.  You have invited us to stay with you, dine with you, and you’ve offered to show us your cities, and we hope we’ll get a chance to accept your kind offers.  You have generously shared your travel experiences.  Best of all, you have laughed with us and at us as we stumble along, learning about the world as we go.  We’ve enjoyed your company and never feel lonely because you’re with us.

Since we don’t have the luxury of actually sharing a meal with you, we thought we’d share  photos of some  luscious foodie moments we have enjoyed  on the road.  We wish you could have been with us and we hope that you’ll continue to share our travels in 2013.

Bon appétit!
