Travel plan Ins and Outs

So, here we are, a fortnight out from being on a plane not long before our descent into Dubai en route to Paris.

In the last 24 hours we have confirmed a culinary appointment and discovered a cultural disappointment.  Such is travel!

Our friends at Hotel Paris France, in the Marais district, have followed up an email we sent to Pramil Restaurant and secured us a table for 27 April, our last evening in Paris before we set off for 5 days in Burgundy.  Pramil cooks for Parisian palates – lucky us!

The disappointment?  More than four years after it began, the restoration and refurbishment of Musee Picasso is not yet complete.  This is the third time our wish to visit this important museum has been frustrated.  Oh well, we’ll just have to visit Paris again.  Merde!

About rmgtravelsandfood

Maggie and I are both in our late 60s and live in Melbourne, Australia. This blog is devoted to our shared passions for travel and fine dining at home. As cooks, we are skilful and adventurous within a framework of mainly traditional ingredients and techniques, and we aim to prepare nutritious food that looks good and tastes delicious. Our evolving repertoire is influenced by both our travels and Melbourne's vibrant food culture. From 2008 to early 2020, our priority travel destinations were overseas, although we have always spent a bit of time each year exploring parts of Australia. Our first overseas journey together was to Italy in the northern autumn of 2008. We later travelled in France (2009), Spain (2011), Singapore and Cambodia (2012/13). Most of our international adventures from 2014 to 2020 are covered in this blog. We have now reached a time in our lives when the prospect of long flights to distant places are unappealing, so we will travel mainly within Australia or to countries that are close to home.
