Move, Learn, Eat

Sometimes summers are enjoyed in the comfort of our own homes.  Sometimes summers mean we get to discover new places, learn new things, and eat new food. 
If you are like me and spent this summer at home, it is nice to have these little videos to transport us around the world in 1 minute!

STA Travel Australia sent 3 guys, Rick Mereki, Andrew Lees and Tim White on an amazing journey around the world.  In numbers, these 3 short 1 minute videos equal these kinds of numbers: 3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 000 miles, and 2 cameras.
Now I'd love to know what made you move, what you learned, and what food you ate this summer.

And I present thee ...

Miss Beatrix!
As most of you have had the pleasure to see and pick up, the newest addition to Mille Fiori Spa is Miss Beatrix "Trixi".  She is a Brussels Griffon, and yes, some people say this breed looks a little like the Star Wars Ewoks! 
She is truly the darn-est puppy ever, and is always happy to get a cuddle from my clients.  I want to thank you all for welcoming her so warmly to the spa.
This is a famous BG from the movie As Good as it Gets with Jack Nicholson.

Also seen in Sweet November.

And this is her best friend in the world Ozlo, an Italian Mastiff

Dear photograph,

 A wonderful blog that I truly enjoy and wanted to share with you all; Dear photograh.  It brings us back in time, but then also brings us directly into the present moment. 
Really quite a beautiful concept.

"Food For Sharing"

The Tapa Bar is really one of my preferred restaurants in town!  The atmosphere combined with their incredible staff and delicious food make for a perfect outing. 
Some of my absolute favourite dishes are: 
The Kale (I know, kale... but you MUST try this)
Coco Prawns
Pesto Pizza
and to top it off: The Pasion Martini (tequila, alize and cinnamon) incredible, although I'm sure it's the extra squeeze of love in each glass b/c I can't make them taste that good at home

PS. Did you know that they do an annual day of dining for the homeless every December? They do, and they do it well with tons of heart.
