Natalie (heroine) visits the mountains in the Pyrenees. There she finds homemade chocolates she can’t refuse. Making all things chocolate is traditional in some areas of the Pyrenees.
Home made soup is also a tradition. and it varies from village to village. On reading the book it may seem a little odd that Natalie is ordering vegetable soup but again this is traditional. Some places, pork or duck is added.
To travel through the Pyrenees on her own apart from her little dog Spike for a company must be an awesome experience.
All the details in Marriage a Journey and a Dog are researched and travelled by me – but not on my own.
