(No) Planes, Trains & Automobiles...

... And a ferry. And a cab, one bus, and the Northern Line. While the end of the France / Geneva trip didn't end in quite the simple manner we'd anticipated (thanks Iceland, we love you too), the adventure of the return didn't detract in the slightest from what was a lovely weekend.

I will shortly post snaps and reminiscences of some fine eating provided by our lovely friends Valerie and Teddy, an awful lot of cheese and how even crusty French bread can be improved by sticking bits of pig in the dough. In the meantime, however, I'm just going to leave you with a classic bit of French comfort food: Tartiflette.

Potatoes, bacon, minced onion and Reblochon cheese. After six hours on various trains between Geneva and Calais and a two hour stop over at Paris Nord, there are few more welcoming sights.

Oh, Tartiflette - how I sigh for you on dark nights. Well, from September until April. Although I could definitely manage a portion now too.
