Into the closet: folio 2

Last August, I wrote about the fact that we had modernised ‘the little room’ in our home and then decided to decorate it with a rolling series of photos from our overseas travels.

The first series, selected from our visit to France in the northern winter of 2009/10, has recently been replaced with some photos from our first overseas trip, to Italy, early in the northern autumn of 2008. Here are the images that now adorn the walls of our WC:

About rmgtravelsandfood

Maggie and I are both in our mid-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. While we are young enough, our priority travel destinations are overseas, although we do spend a few weekends each year exploring south-eastern Australia. As travellers, we are most comfortable with a combination of organised and independent touring. 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). All trips from 2014 onwards are documented in this blog.
