Une belle image de Saumur

I took this beautiful photo of Chateau Saumur from our hotel window this morning. Maggie and I are spending three nights in this picturesque Loire Valley city.

We are three weeks into our visit to Dubai and Europe but this is the first post I have published since we left Melbourne.

This uncharacteristic lack of volubility was brought on by a nasty and persistent virus which I contracted somewhere between Melbourne and Amsterdam, via Dubai. My proclivities have also been inhibited by an unusually protracted period of late-summer heat in Europe, with maximum temperatures ranging up to 34C.

So, I find myself incapable of doing anything more than enjoying our journey. Which, upon reflection, is not such a bad thing!

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.
