Light posts and snail mail

Maggie and I spent three weeks across June and July on the west coast of North America. First up, we went on a tour that began in Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, and finished in the city of Vancouver, including ten days in the Rocky Mountains and other areas of high country. We then flew to San Francisco and spent six days exploring this famous city and its environs, before flying home to Melbourne via Auckland.

I won’t be publishing any posts on this blog about our recent travels; I have too many other pressing tasks that are inhibiting me from writing the slightly earnest type of stories with which regular readers would be familiar. However, I have published a series of lighter posts on a new blog, which I created for the residents of a nursing home to whom I read once each week when I am home.

Three posts about the Rocky Mountains tour begin here

If you would like to see some photos and brief accounts from our time in San Francisco, the first of two posts is here

About rmgtravelsandfood

Maggie and I are both in our early 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.
