Purple Artichokes in the South of France


I fell in love with Nice, France when I stumbled across the Old City. It was filled with colorful buildings and tiny alleys. In the main center of the Old City was a market filled with fresh vegetables and fruits along with soaps and spices. A chef and photographers dream! I wondered looking at all the colorful produce. These purple artichokes caught my eye. They make great kitchen art too!

Bar Central La Boqueria


One of the best meals I ate in Barcelona was at Bar Central in La Boqueria. There are several restaurants inside along with all the fruits, vegetables, and sweets for sale. On my first day a friend took me inside and told me this place had the best baby squid. Although it was 9 AM we had baby squid and a glass of wine for breakfast. If you have the chance, its a must in Barcelona! If you don’t eat squid they have lots of other items on the menu.

Bouqeria in Barcelona


Just steps off the famous las ramblas street in Barcelona is the famous food market called the bouqueria. Restaurants, locals, and tourists crowd this place from open to close. You can buy fresh ingredients such as seafood, fruit, and vegetables. There is also tons of sweets to buy from marzapan to chocolate.

No agenda in Paris


The best way to see Paris is to just wonder the streets. I promised myself this trip I wouldn’t do the touristy museums or monuments. I am exploring the city as a Parisian. Here are a few of my photos from my adventures yesterday.

Last day in Paris. Spending the day cafe hopping!
