Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

After all the frenzy of July and having my friends plus kids over, it’s awfully quiet at home. Everyone left over the weekend – F & S plus kids back to Moscow, T back to Madrid and C also to Madrid to spend a few days with T before heading back to Provence.

I have 6 days to go before I leave for Las Vegas with my 5-year old son, J. We’re going to visit my sisters and meet my three-month old niece. We’ll be spending three weeks there and will hopefully, be able to try out lots of new restaurants. As soon as I get to the States, I’m going to replace my dead Canon Powershot – any suggestions for a compact digital camera anyone?

    My Canon powershot packed up too recently. Just bought an Olympus SP-550UZ…a little bigger than the powershot but still quite compact. It has a 18x optical zoom that goes from 28 mm to 400…figured it would be great for travel…lots more bells and whistles though…have three weeks to learn it all before I get head off to Spain and then New York…Have a great time stateside…I love Las Vegas…all the color and show…Cheers,Liz
