We're back

We're back from a little road trip from Kent to Cingoli and back via Luxembourg, Saarbrucken, Strasbourg, Basel, Luzern, Parma, Castel San Angelo, San Severino, Modena and Maranello! Here are our favourites:

1. Favourite new city - Luxembourg. Completely unexpected - great city, perfect mix of old and new.

I bought a little souvenir to remind us of our trip a paper mache scultpure inspired by the Nana given to the city of Luxembourg by French artist Niki de Saint Phalle.

2. Best patisserie - Strasbourg. A tiny little shop full of locals and we had the best coffee and most divine pain au chocolat ever (the chocolate was still liquid inside they were so fresh). Also a great place to go clothes shopping (lucky for our bank account it was Sunday and everything was closed!)

3. Best hotel - Radisson in Lucern. Fabulous room great service, lovely location just near the theatre. They even let Bailey into the restaurant!

4. Most peaceful spot - Switzerland. The scenery on the drive through Switzerland was breath taking.

5. Best of all - Italy of course. Best gelato, best food and friendliest people!
