This week’s Photo Hunt No. 9 (We ek of March 4, 2018) – Memorable Restaurant Experience (ie., meal, bar, drink, sitting area, terrace, view, encounter, etc)

Lovely photos of one my favorite drinks, other than a glass of fine wine.

Upcoming Photo Hunt Themes:

Photo Hunt No. 10 (Week of March 11, 2018) – Waiting (Traveling involves quite a bit of waiting for buses, trains, planes, etc. We spend our time sitting on benches, having a drink at a bar/café or chatting with fellow travelers. Feel free to post any fun/interesting photos related to this theme.)
Photo Hunt No. 11 (Week of March 18, 2018) – Garden(s)
Photo Hunt No. 12 (Week of March 25, 2018) – Painting

On a recent trip to Venice, Italy, I happened upon a new restaurant called Hostaria Osottooosopra (Sestiere Dorsoduro 3740, 30123 Venice, Italy). We loved the food and service so much that we ate there 5 nights in a row. It is a family run restaurant which has a small but cozy dining area. The food is fresh and so delicious. They also serve you a complimentary spritz before dinner is served.

This meal was memorable because I was feeling poorly - dizzy, nauseous and with a headache. I thought I was coming down with a migraine but it turned out to be a reaction to the altitude. We were on top of Europe - Jungfraujoch.

The food was pricey and not particularly good but the view from our table was wonderful.

That looks so delicious. We will be very near there for a month in October and look forward to eating there.

We were in Tunisia in 2012 and spent 3 nights at Ksar Ezzit, an organic olive farm in the mountains 40 miles south of Tunis. At the time, this was trying to establish itself as a centre for Eco tourism. Everything cooked and served in the restaurant was grown on the estate, which may explain the preponderance of flowers on the plate. Husband described it as a sort of nouvelle cuisine meets ‘Gardener’s World’. Definitely a different experience.....

In June 2015, Mom and I found ourselves in Polignano a Mare, where we thoroughly enjoyed a once in a lifetime, "lifestyles of the rich and famous" extravaganza of a dining experience at Grotta Palazzese...food was delicious, service was superb, view was stunning!

(I can't resist sharing another experience!)

On a completely different note....in January 2016, Dave (hubby) and I were wandering around Trastevere area of Rome and happened upon a teeny, tiny little restaurant called "DON". There were no tables, just a few stools at a counter. We had an incredibly tasty lunch here of deep fried pizza (vera pizza fritta Napoletana). There were a few options on the menu: we chose the tomato, buffalo mozza, basil and pepper pizza. Lunch was 9 euro for the two of us, including beer! We mm-mmm'd and om nom'd and loudly made clear our enjoyment of the pizza - the owner must have appreciated our enthusiasm because he brought us some mouthwatering donut-like sweets for free!

We had sold our house and was the last time we walked to breakfast before we left town. We won’t live too far away, but not walking distance.
It made us a bit sad, after 16 years, but happy to move on to a "new" life.

Still getting HUGE expanses of plain white screen between each photo post.
The white seems to be the same length as the actual post preceding it.
Anyone else?

No problem here either. Looks fine on my laptop, and on my android phone, both running chrome.

I have that problem when using Internet Explorer
I think it is a known problem. Try edge or chrome. I have always been a IE fan but it is going away
