Best Ever Travel Meal #linkup

How on earth do you choose the best meal you've ever eaten whilst travelling? When I suggested this as a blog topic, I clearly wasn't thinking too good [sic]. Possibly my grey matter has been slightly addled by the unusual March sunshine we've been experiencing, and celebrating.
Could it be the dishes of my adopted homeland? Pie Mash & Likker, a convivial communal Curry or a pinky-raised afternoon tea with friends?
Nope. Much simpler. The recipe? 


Take one late summer day in the South of France. Add a dash of sunbeams. A splash of kayaking towards the Pont du Gard. Spread a picnic blanket on a bank. Lay out a mouthwatering selection of freshly baked baguette, sliced charcuterie, salty feta, glistening olives, ripe brie and a knife. Slice glorious beef tomatoes, dish out piquant tapenade and egg cups of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Accompany with a newly married husband (ideally your own, like I did), a couple of cheeky glasses of local wine and soak in the magic. A soupcon of fuzzy photos are entirely optional, but highly recommended to convey the emotion of the scene.

So then, how about yours?

Kelly, Rebecca and I would love you to add your link to the link up - all we ask is you share a little comment love with your fellow linkers.

    1. It was pretty unbeatable (except maybe the crying on the second stressful leg of the kayaking. But we live & learn :D)

  7. We do this a lot when we are being lazy with dinner and just call it "tapas" haha. Seriously the best. I'm so indecisive so love having lots of little things to pick at.

    1. We need to start calling our dinners like that tapas, rather than a fridge rustle - sounds much better!

  10. Oh, I love this!!! This is one of my favourite ways of eating (and I love your helpful reminder that the husband in question should preferably be your own). I love the viaduct in your one photo and could live on Brie and olives. Yum.
