Come with us for a walk!

  1. I think I need to sell all, travel light, and hit the road with the heaviest thing being a camera lens and tripod. Wow! Great stuff! I love the chili peppers all over the buildings! I can smell the meat cooking and taste that fresh baked bread!


  2. I’ve been to Espelette as my mother lives in the Basque Country so she took me there on one of my visits. It’s such a lovely village. Their dark chocolate with piment d’espelette is the best I have ever had! I was so sad when my tin ran out, which happened rather fast! I’ve also had their jelly. Sooooo good all of it!


      1. No, i’m not into Chilli – unless i have a fireextinguisher at my side… But, the fooooood, the colours and (savle! (danish word for water drooling out of your mouth)) the sausages, cheese – oh my gooood, my screen got wet again….


  3. Fabulous photos! Reminds me of my dear friends, the husband from Basque, the wife of Basque heritage, who moved from Southern California back to Gardnerville, Nevada, a few years back. When my friend would cook her Basque specialties… oh yum!! Your pictures brought back great memories. Lovely! ~SueBee (now I’m hungry too)
