While reflecting on 2013, my first reaction is whoa. It was by far one of the most intense, challenging, wonderful years of our lives. Knowing that these work-abroad opportunities only come around every so often, we did everything we could to make the most of the experience. By traveling smart / budgeting, we were able to enjoy more than our fair share of beautiful culinary adventures. Chocolate, gaufres (waffles), and frites in Brussels, Limoncello on the Amalfi Coast, bread, cheese, and wine in Paris, vegetarian tapas in Barcelona, olives and rosé in Provence, pizza and prosecco in Venice, Irish whiskey in Dublin... we really are some of the luckiest foodies in the world.
Here are a few snapshots of some of my favorite foodie memories of 2013. Here's hoping 2014 is even more delicious!
