Dinner with [New] Friends in Paris

Carol Pucci wrote an interesting article in today’s Seattle Times about two American ex-pats who host Sunday dinners for weary travellers. Each venue draws an eclectic group from all walks of life and offers a great way to meet fellow travellers. Contact Jim Haynes or Patricia Laplante-Collins and enjoy a different Parisian experience.

Twenty-Six Dinners – Finding New Restaurant Experiences

A great part of travelling is the opportunity to experience the food and drinks of the country you are visiting but you can also travel through food without boarding a aircraft. After one too many dinners at our local restaurant, we resolved to try new dining experiences in 2007, Twenty-Six Dinners at new (for us) restaurants.

From Old Faithful to Little Big Horn, Montana provides the imagery and folklore that many travellers drew inspiration from to begin their American journey. Yellowstone National Park and Little Big Horn are the most recognisable stops under the big sky but Montana offers visitors a wide variety of attractions and activities.

In Great Falls, visit the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center or cool off at the Electric City Water Park after a morning ride through the surrounding country. This is a great place to take your teenagers and mix water slides, a fantastic skate park and the Museum of Western Art.

A spectacular alternative to Yellowstone is the Glacier National Park, the landscape carved out of the mountains by frozen rivers over millennia. Explore by boat, foot or horseback for a Lewis and Clark experience to get close to the environment but for less active visitors you use your car or one of the park’s shuttle services.

American history, natural beauty and a big country welcome await you in Montana.
