Greetings from London. I love returning to places once traveled, it’s like visiting an old friend!…There is a beautiful familiarity and at the same time an excitement about discovering all that has happened since we last caught up. But before we embarked on this new, yet ‘familiar’ adventure it was off to ‘Patisserie Valerie’ Marylebone, […]
