Bill & Eden's Web Bits on Travel:

(last updated: November 2000)

Three times now we've been able to visit Europe with friends/members of our Culinary Guild.  These "Euroculinaire" excursions have taken us to Florence, Venice, Rome, Naples and Paris so far (along with many wonderful smaller places).  Below are various notes on the food we enjoyed and the places we've stayed.  For us a smokefree environment is an extremely important factor so there's a fair amount of info on that topic along with food & pictures & such...

Smoke free world

A resource for restaurants etc. that are smoke free.  Very helpful in planning our last trip.

A Week of Food in Bruges & Paris 1998  

JL & I both had an extra week of vacation for our Spring 1998 trip, so we told our spouses to meet us in Italy and headed off to see Bruges & Paris for a few days.  This is a record of the interesting foods we encountered during our stay.  -Eden
