Paris is not speciallly renowned for her nightclubs. But, the situation is changing. The remarkable Wanderlust nightclub opened in 2012 and combines a splendid Seine river view from its huge terrace, an outdoor and indoor venue, good programming and a stylish crowd. Open until 4am.

A few affordable Paris restaurants are great. They combine affordable prices (set menu around 15 euros at lunch time) and gastronomic French cuisine. Des gars dans la cuisine is one ot them. Located close to the Picasso Museum in Le Marais (see Paris map), Des gars dans la cuisine serves fresh and innovative French food in a lovely room. Service is pleasant. A welcome stop in Le Marais, a trendy Paris district with few quality restaurants.
In our constant search for affordable gastronomic restaurants in Paris, we went today to Le Quinze, a trendy restaurant run by Lionel Fleury, a promizing young french cook. On the plus side, good service, quiet room, nice and modern decor, tasty and innovative dishes, excellent Bordeaux white wine (Château Pierrail). On the minus side, the portions were relatively small. The meal costed us 114 euros for two. Web site. Location on Paris map
Eight Aussies have been to Versailles Palace today to see this wonderful part of French history.
It was disgraceful the way tourists are treated having to line for tickets for one and a half hours and then a further two hours in line to enter the palace. There was only three people selling tickets, and for a tourist destination that has five million tourists annually, this is a national disgrace.
