Favourites Enjoyed in 2009

Before slipping into brand new 2010, I'd like to look back at some of 2009's highlights. Some of the following may have actually been created in earlier years, but somehow they made my 2009 a little bit more special :)

Favourite Places: London, England - the buzz, the culture, the history, the beauty, Marks & Spencer, V & A Museum, The Sunday Times, British Museum, the people, and so much more!;

Paris - pretty as a picture, sophisticated, the best place for gorgeous long walks, Musee d'Orsay, Eric Kayser Bakery, the language, the architecture

Favourite Outings: Everything I experienced in London, including opera (Turindot and Rigoletto) especially...the musical Chicago was lots of fun :)

Favourite Concert: Bat for Lashes in Vancouver.

Favourite Album: The ones I listened to most in 2009 were The xx, Lungs - Florence and the Machine, music from Carmen, Two Suns - Bat for Lashes, Veckatimest - Grizzly Bear, Hospice - The Antlers, Into the Wild Soundtrack, various classical music

Favourite Film: Didn't see many 2009 ones. House of Eliott was my favourite thing to watch, but that's an old television series.

Favourite Dish: Chicken and wild mushroom stew. Vegetable tart. And split pea soup :)

Favourite Book: The Making of a Marchioness by Frances Hodgson Burnett; The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde.

Favourite Tea: Rooibus Vanilla.

I hope your 2009 was filled with lots of lovely enjoyments, new discoveries, and happy times :)
