Paris in the Winter

Paris // A Slice of Peru

Last week I was sharing on Instagram some of my favourite photos from my little trip to Europe in January. It was basically a show of support for Europe and the EU in light of the referendum. I’m not going to discuss that awful outcome right now, because it makes me equally sad and angry, but I just wanted to share a little more Europe love with you all!!

I’ve been to Paris before so I’d already seen and been to some places, so this 24 hours was a mix of revisiting a few locations and finding some new favourites.

fish - El Mercado // A Slice of Peru

I know, I know, it’s like the 6th of December, and this post is very delayed…..

I’ve been super busy organising for my trip in a couple of weeks and my posts seem to have fallen further and further down the list of things to do. I promise to improve! Really, I do!

So without further ado, here is the lowdown on what happened in November…

Arequipa // The White City at Night

Basílica Catedral de Arequipa // A Slice of Peru

Arequipa is a city in the south of Peru, and it should definitely be included in your itinerary when you come to visit the country. It is just as deserving as a trip to Cusco or to the northern beaches.

It used to be the capital of Peru for a time during the 1800s once Peru had declared independence from Spain, and the historic centre is a UNESCO world heritage site.

The beautiful white stone used to construct many of the buildings here is just absolutely stunning, but we only caught a brief glimpse on our arrival as the sun was setting. However, we were greeted by this view as we checked into our hotel for the night.

Wong Display - ExpoVino // A Slice of Peru

Happy Halloween everybody!

Well, it’s a little late, but never mind!

How did you celebrate? Did you dress up as a skeleton or the walking dead, or did you stay in and watch scary movies? Did you eat all of the Halloween sweets you bought for the trick or treaters, like I did (oops!)? Whatever you did, I hope you had a ton of fun!

This month has been pretty quiet on the eating and outings front, as I’m saving both money and my appetite for when my parents come and visit in November. So excited! It’s been nearly a year since I’ve seen them, so I can’t wait!

So, because of this, you’ll notice the ‘Eating’ section is missing for October, and that the ‘Watching’ section has more than doubled in size!! I had to keep myself occupied somehow…..
