There’s nothing that screams “back to reality” than the Monday after 10 days traveling on vacation. On Friday, July 26th my boyfriend and I left for vacation, excited to discover the islands of Greece and bask in the sun, swim in the Mediterranean, explore the country, enjoy infamous sunsets, taste local dishes, and just simply, relax.
And we did all of it, successfully- with one minor glitch.. On the way back home from Mykonos, our flight got delayed which caused us to miss our connection in Athens. Unfortunately, we had to buy a new ticket home, spend the night in Munich and fly back on Sunday. Fortunately, we got a full morning to explore Munich – which was such a treat (I didn’t indulge in any Bavarian breakfasts, though – next time)! I could not have wished for a more perfect trip and can’t wait to whip up some Inspiralized recipes – I jotted down a few notes while I ate my way through the Greek islands…..
I’m about to leave Florida, saying goodbye to rum drinks, fresh local fish, the beach and palm trees. On our way to the airport, we stopped at Carmine’s, my parents favorite local gourmet Italian-flared market… and I’m glad I stopped in. Even though our bellies were full from lunch at Sailfish Marina – after lump crab nachos, fish tacos and grilled dolphin salads, we couldn’t resist a little “sight seeing” at Carmine’s.
The veggies, the meats, the herbs, the olives, the wines, the desserts… everything catches your eye. I love going on vacation and eating the local delicacies and specials- on this trip, it was all about mahi mahi (dolphin). It’s probably my favorite fish and you can bet your bottom dollar that this week, I’ll be dreaming up some island/beach-themed dishes with zucchini pasta.
