Week 28 . . . Azerbaijan!

Hello travelers!

A while back, Elra gave me a list of places she'd like us to travel, and Azerbaijan is (I think) the last and most interesting one.  Here is what she has to say about it:  "Azery's cooking is very unique. It is influencde by Iranian cooking with its own uniqueness. Have you heard Rose Petal Jam? Yes, Azery people love jams, they even serve jams with tea (instead of sugar cubes)."

I know very little about this country and am looking forward to learning more about it as I learn about its food.

I am about to make myself some tea now, and ponder next weeks menu.  Now will I add sugar, lemon, or jam?

Happy Travels!

We're Back! Week 27 (and a half)- Cuba !

Welcome back everyone!

I've returned from my travels, have settled back at work, and am already getting a feeling of wanderlust! If anyone is interested in a report from Spain and Portugal, check it out here!

 I'm ready to go someplace warm- how about you?  My co-worker just got back from New Year's in South Beach, Miami, and I've been inspired to taste some Cuban food, how does that sound?  

Since this is Thursday, I figured we'll work on this one until the end of next week, so look for our next itinerary on January 18th!  Ideas for it?  Email me at!

Also, please welcome our newest travelling companion, Collen from As Is Proper

Happy Travels,
