Did you know that #Chocolatour has a 4.8 rating out of a possible 5? There are now 49 #bookreviews telling you why the reader enjoyed the book. Here's an excerpt from latest 5-star review: "Who knew there was so much to know about #chocolate! In addition to the description, there are beautiful photos accompanying the text."

I'm happy to say that I took most of the 61 colour photos found in the book. You'll see many of them on my blog at http://chocolatour.net and will find info on how to purchase Chocolatour on my Store page. Cheers!

#KKO #Chocolate of #Tlaquepaque #Mexico offers a truly authentic Mexican experience. #Chocolatour
mexican chocolate comes in many forms. traditional chocolate from mexico is coarse and less refined. new mexican chocolate is more sophisticated.

#Sydney  anyone?
'Get out on the harbour!' - This is the one piece of advice I always give visitors. You can't truly appreciate Sydney without seeing it from the water. I also used to say it didn't matter whether you went on a tour or a ferry...

Have you been to #Tlaquepaque   #Mexico ? It is a magical place filled with artistic inspiration.

I really love Rembrandt's Bistro. It has a chic ambiance, lovely country setting, deliciously creative culinary offerings, and a terrific wine menu. Rembrandt's is a great place for a romantic dinner, a lunch with the girls, or a lovely restaurant for any special gathering. I highly recommend it.
