Le Chic En Rose

Diaries of an independent traveller

Le Chic En Rose is heading off “En The Road” again! We’ll be in the Uk for a couple of weeks catching up with family, including our London-based daughter and then spending 8 days relaxing amongst the stunning lakes and mountains of Switzerland.

A busy week of “Grandmum Le Chic ” duties has left little time for blogging (our daughter, La Chic Maman, has also been away at a wedding this weekend!). However there has been just a hint of spring although it’s still cool for the time of year. Following on with my #justanotherdayinwa theme (see here …

Am just taking a quick detour from our European travels to post a bit closer to home this week. A couple of months ago Tourism WA launched a new advertising campaign with the catchphrase “# Just another day in WA”! The idea being that people could share their own personal experiences on social media using …
