Photos of the Week – Snow and Ice
It is Friday again – and oh my, did the organisers of #FriFotos predict the weather today in England! Titled snow and ice – I was thinking skiing and cocktails (not necessarily together), but wasn’t expecting this much snow on my own back garden! Must think of a special cocktail tonight!
But sticking with the theme, I have to share one of my latest purchases – obviously from my recent trip to the USA. I was served a cocktail a year ago in California with a single “ball” of ice, and never quite forgot it.. so when I saw these for sale, I simply couldn’t resist… guess what I will be having when it gets darker today..
Speaking of cocktails, it is interesting how they are finally making their way to Europe. It used to be a USA indulgence, and I am happy to report this is slowly changing. Last night, I had some really nice cocktails at the Sofitel St James in London – aren’t they pretty. I probably need to do a post on the best cocktail bars in London, so I need to get out and do some research… see how nice I am? The things I do for the blog and my dear readers!
Weather permitting, I should heading to Switzerland next week – stop 2 in my very exciting Euro Tour. It will be my first time skiing in Switzerland, so I shall compare and contrast with France. It will also be a special trip as it will be a girly weekend – a bit of skiing, a bit of eating, a bit of sightseeing (we are also heading to Geneva and Zürich), and hopefully, a bit of shopping. Not to mention chocolates, of course!
And finally, I will leave you with what could be the perfect photograph for this Friday’s topic – doesn’t this combine both (snow and ice) to perfection? I can see a bit of both for sure!
Wishing you all a great weekend, wherever you may be!
