Remember when we went to Europe? That was over the summer. I promised to write about it, and never did. Oops! Here are some pictures.
|First we went to London.|
|We did a lot of touristy things like take photos in front of everything|
|We ate gluten free fish and chips at the Mermaid's Tail in Leicester Square. It was ok, but not the best ever.|
|Horses may bite|
|We made something called 'Spanish Bird' which is beef pounded thin, filled with salami, bacon, hard boiled egg and pickle, then cooked in the pressure cooker. Deliciously.|
|A relative of Alex's made me this giant loaf of gluten free bread. His son has Celiac, so he brought this over for me and I devoured the whole thing. I've never had anyone give me fresh baked, warm bread before.|
|This is lecso (lech-o), a mix of tomatoes and onions and peppers and bacon that you eat for breakfast in Slovakia.|
|I made friends with this little spot-faced dog (sure didn't think I'd have a spot faced dog of my own soon after we got home!)|
|We went to an 'adventurepark' where we went on a ski lift up a mountain and then rode a roller coaster and did a ropes course thing|
|We cooked fish and chips for Alexs parents (using my recipe)|
|We went to the Budapest Zoo, which is my favorite zoo. I touched a sloth.|
|We went to the Vasarcsarnok Market, where there are a million stands of vegetables and meats and things.|
|We went to a great flea market in Budapest and I bought some cameras (what else)|
Then on the way home we stopped in Iceland for 24 hours because a flight was cancelled. This was my favorite part of the trip. We saw a friend of mine from summer camp (really, in Iceland!) and ate a ton and explored and loved it. I want to go back.
We had two different kinds of fish and whale, and it was all delicious.
This is the Sea Baron. He came around offering samples of things like fermented shark (what he's holding there, it was not delicious) and whale blubber (so delicious).
Iceland was cool. I bought a really expensive, perfect sweater.
Alex bought a great hat.
The end! Vacation was great.
