Annual holiday. What a horrible word. It reminds you that it’s limited. Although at the same time it makes it all the more precious. I’ve been very lucky this year and been to some amazing places - still keeping my fingers crossed that I can squeeze some extra trips in.
Last week was my first week back at work after a delightful 2 weeks off. So during my post holiday blues - I looked over the pictures from said travels and noted a recurring theme. My friends and I LIKE TO EAT.

“If our lives are dominated by a search for happiness, then perhaps few activities reveal as much about the dynamics of this quest - in all its ardour and paradoxes - than our travels.
They express, however, inarticulately, an understanding of what life might be about, outside the constraints of work and the struggle of survival.
