Travel PhotoThursday: More Than Tea

When tea alone is not enough, La Bretesche
A little something extra with your tea

This yummy photo is my weekly contribution to Travel Photo Thursday. I could not resist posting this after last week’s coffee and tea photo of tea and coffee at Budget Traveller’s Sandbox on Travel Photo Thursday. Go to her home page and see who’s posting new photos today.

We were staying at the Chateau de la Bretesche Resort in Brittany in northwest France. After a long day of driving, we settled in and asked room service to deliver a pot of tea. Little did we know what came with the tea! Please see more about the fantastic resorts and restaurants in Brittany in my post for Girls Getaway, about three luxurious getaways.


I retain all rights for this photo, and request that you not reprint it. Thanks. Our stay at La Bretesche was compliments of the Relais and Chateaux resort. 





Salade Arizona? In Paris?

When I wrote my post on Ten Cheap(er) Places to Eat in Paris, I had been nudged a bit by a Blog Carnival through the Lonely Planet Blog Sherpa group.  Kat, who holds forth on food at Tie Dye Travels, is hosting this food around the world carnival, and I encourage you to take a look at the wide variety of offerings. Eat/Read your way through  Peru, Seoul, Ethiopia, Disneyland, Mexico City, China,Lebanon, Manila, Spain (very popular–four entries–including churros for breakfast), India, Malaysia and Indonesia. There are also two favorites of mine: The Story of Tea from Quillcards, and our friend Kerry Dexter, who keeps us supplied with music for the road trip writes about potato music ! GOT to read that one!

And in keeping with the food theme of the day…read on for the amazing history of apples in the amazing country of Kazakhstan.
