...when my mind turns to travel.
Somewhere early in my recuperation I got an email about the Travel + Leisure Global Bazaar. At the time just walking a couple of blocks was beyond me, but it seemed that in two weeks I'd be able to attend and blessedly, I was. I know I've been getting better when my favorite board on Pinterest (yes, thanks to help from blog friends I've figured it out) is "Places I want to Travel." I've let my imagination go wild and have started pinning places that are dreams. Bali and Laos are my two latest dream destinations.
The Bazaar was lots of fun. There were exhibits from all over the world. From North America...
Wouldn't St. Croix be nice this winter?
A wonderful sand sculpture
Fun things from all over the world
The sweetest exhibit in the hall
But my favorite stop was the chocolate tasting bar. Luckily my desire not to appear piggy kicked in after the fourth taste or I could easily have gained several pounds. All the flavors I tried were delicious, but I especially liked the Maya Gold, a combination of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. My favorite was a little less complicated, but combined two favorite flavors, coffee and chocolate. Loved the Espresso! Thanks, Green & Black's, for a taste treat.
This made a sweet start to my week. Tomorrow I go back to work. After three weeks it's quite a transition to return, but I am grateful I am well enough. Again, many thanks for all of your support, prayers and good wishes. So appreciate my sweet bloggy friends!
