Roam

The Atlantic Ocean, LBI (on the bay side)I’ve been playing my own version of “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego”. In this case, I managed to go to a town in Germany and Zürich in the same week. Zürich was a stopover in the airport, so technically I wasn’t there.

There are no yarn shops in the Zürich airport, I wasn’t allowed to bring knitting needles in my carry on bags, and I left the camera at home, so there’s very little evidence of my trip. [The photo above is of the Atlantic, taken on a winter’s day back in 2006.]

The chocolates and marzipan I brought home just in time for Valentine’s Day are the only sweet evidence: Sprüngli dark chocolates and miniature marzipan fruit from the waiting area of the airport. Well, that and tales of an amazing, unexpected trek and meals like deer and brussels sprouts or salmon and saffron cream.

    Well, yes. But if the only evidence of a trip from Germany is chocolates, that’s not bad evidence.

    The dinner sounds goodish, though slightly odd. The salmon would be good if I liked that sort of thing.

      I think you would have liked the other dinner options I had.
      Hoping some of the marzipan is left so I can do a photoshoot in the sunshine over the weekend.

    Am pretty sure that’s true. Because I am very fond of German food. Wrird puddings and sausages are the exceoptions.
