Not just a ballet trip

Although Tours en l'air Ballet Trips provide a steady diet of ballet, even the most ardent balletomane cannot live on ballet alone. I myself like great food, so I always make sure we have scrumptions breakfasts, and fabulous meals, as well as opportunities for between-meal snacks. Here are some pics of the food we enjoyed on the last two Tours en l'air trips, first to Paris and Amsterdam and then to Berlin and Dresden.
