Just the other night Mr. Eurotrash and I were discussing the impossibility of finding a ‘make-out point’, for lack of indiscretion, where we could escape the world in each other’s arms (yuck), or something like that. Our usual spots were rife with dog walkers, tennis players (at midnight? c’mon), and raccoons. That’s when Mr. Eurotrash, I certainly
won’t can’t take credit for this one, had the bright idea of purchasing a trailer we could take to the open road with – and park. it. anywhere.

12 Days of Eurotrash – Can you even believe I’ve finished my Christmas shopping? Now it’s time for what I like to call Cabin Fever. A few years ago I posted The Eurotrash Stocking Stuffed - looking back I can’t believe we’ve come this far. So what does cabin fever mean to me? Well, it starts with a little trip to the video store, a month supply of hot chocolate, maybe some cookies, rum, and of course, made-for-home leg warmers, cashmere socks, knit pyjama pants and a house coat with little tassels hanging off it. Obviously the Eurotrash holiday also includes champagne, caviar and a ski lift pass but ho, ho, ho, so does Audrey Hepburn.
My #1 favourite way to induce cabin fever is to watch my favourite holiday movies. Now, this isn’t your typical list of Home Alone and Jimmy Stewart – but it’s certainly a pleasant change if you’re just so sick of the typical Xmas flick.
