I’ve been known to take to the water every now and then. I’ve cruised the Mediterranean, and the Arctic Ocean to catch the Northern Lights. I’ve been on many a motor boat I’ve never been sailing before. So when I was invited to go sailing in Menorca, it was perhaps with a level of naivety that my mind was filled with images of glistening seas, slack tides and relaxing in the sunshine on the bow of the ship. See I even knew some ship terminology! I was ready to enjoy the coast off this Mediterranean island.
There’s something rather cheesy in Bordeaux. Many a nose has found the perfect bottle in this renowned wine region of France. But leave the vineyards, head into the grand city of Bordeaux and follow your nose to Rue Huguerie, in the heart of the city and you’ll also discover the best of French cheese. It’s hard to miss Baud et Millet, despite the fact that it’s a small, one door restaurant in a quiet street. Certainly once you arrive outside you’ll know you will have sniffed out one of Bordeaux’s little gems.
