Le Chic En Rose

Diaries of an independent traveller

Le Chic En Rose is soon to be the “En The Road” again! We’re heading off this week for a month in Europe mainly to the UK to catch up with family including our younger daughter, Mlle, in London. However we’ve also booked trips to Menaggio on Lake Como and a long weekend in Berlin. There always seems to be so much to organise before heading overseas, not helped on this occasion by someone deciding to hack into our credit card account (a master ploy by Monsieur Le Chic to prevent any holiday splurges perhaps?). Anyway the house is almost ready for our lovely house and pet sitters who will be looking after Winston Le Schnoodle and Duchess our equally pampered feline whilst we’re away. I won’t be blogging as much whilst travelling although I hope to stay in touch as best I can. I plan to put photos up on my Instagram and Facebook pages (see here and here for links) and I will pop in to check on what’s happening in the blogosphere from time to time.

 

Although we’re looking forward to our holiday there are a few things I’ll miss – our Perth family and friends and our gorgeous WA weather! Here are a few photos taken out and about recently.

 

 

 

Plus I will certainly miss our beautiful West Coast sunsets!  Au Revoir Perth till early May!

  1. Bon voyage Rosemary – safe travelling and enjoy your Europe trip. Fingers crossed you bring some of that lovely sunshine with you!!

    1. Thanks Joy – I certainly hope to bring the sunshine with us !! Seems a bit surreal to think we’ll be in London in a few days time – a lot to do still before we get on the plane! Hope you’ve had a lovely time in Portugal too! 🙂

      1. Packing and getting sorted…. always the worst part for me but it will be worth it Rosemary. We loved Lisbon, such a beautiful city and so much to see and do – now have to get round to sorting my multitude of photos – sometime!!

        1. I know that’s the part I dislike too Joy – my “to do ” list seems to be getting longer each day! Will relax once we get on the plane – nothing I can do by that stage what hasn’t been done will have to wait until we get home again! Glad you enjoyed Lisbon and looking forward to reading about your trip in future blog posts! Have a lovely week 🙂

    Beautiful photos Rosemary, as always. Wishing you safe travels and a lovely trip catching up with all your family. Enjoy the breaks you have planned in Europe to get some time for yourselves, these family trips are wonderful but also emotional. Take care x

        1. That’s good to hear Ruth! I’ll be writing up the trip properly once back home but will put some photos up via social media as I go along! Tonight is quite chilly here and I’ve got my Ugg boots on – obviously the weather is getting me used to colder climes again!

            1. Just got back to Perth, Ruth and it is decidedly on the chilly side – we’ve had the wood burner lit the past couple of nights and all rugged up tonight in sweaters and ugg boots! Hope all’s well with you and I’ll be getting back into the blog again this week!

        Od course, Rosemary, if you have time, visit all the museums on Museum Island, but if you only have time for one, make it Pergamon

        1. Thanks Ken – I’d be interested to see the Pergamon as we didn’t have time last visit so it remains on the wish list. We’ll be staying close by so no excuse this time!

    1. Yes thanks Gin got back safely Wednesday evening. Great trip and we had really good flights back – spare seats next to us on the plane so slept really well! We’ve had a lot of rain and it’s gone really cold so have had the heaters on and lit the wood burner too! Gather you’re having very warm weather – our daughter said it was going to be 25 degrees in London and she was planning a day of sunbathing!! Enjoy the lovely weather – we must have brought the cooler weather back to Perth with us! Going to get back into the blog this week – so many photos to sort through! 🙂
