Amboise, Loire Valley part 1 (weekly email 22 april 2015)

I think about it as the day I walked several kilometres too far […]

Eating recommendations (weekly email 27 May 2015)

A few eating recommendations in Paris. On any trip we enjoy a mix of favourite bistros, new places and sometimes jetlag takes over and we go to the closest place to where we’re staying. Often it’s surprising how good the food is in very unassuming places like Café Le Florès near our hotel. It’s a very standard […]

Montmartre & Sacre Coeur (weekly email 3 June 2015)

Emma and Jeremy joined Mike and I in Paris for the last few days of their trip to Europe. It was Jeremy’s first visit to Paris and of course he had a few things he really wanted to see. One morning we decided to take the morning off work and be tourists with them going […]
