In four weeks’ time I shall be the freshly married Mrs B, and will be getting the Eurostar to Paris. Four days in Paris, the overnight train to Venice, five days in Venice, train to Florence, 5 days in Florence. I can’t even tell you how exciting this is. We are going to EAT FOR BRITAIN.
Initially I began looking up Michelin restaurants, and then I realised there’s no way on earth we can afford to eat at an Alain Ducasse restaurant or stay at the Cipriani. And so I decided that Michelin restaurants are ridiculous, which is a very convenient conclusion to come to when you can’t afford them. So we’ve asked our French friends, and will probably blunder about a bit, and ask about a bit, and hope for the best. CAN’T WAIT. TOO EXCITED.
