In retrospect, it’s fair to say that someone so accident-prone should have never been allowed to dine in the dark. Quite frankly, considering I tend to spill vino on myself and fellow diners when I am allowed to keep all my senses working...what did I think would happen when I dined with my eyes wide shut? Ooohh!! And add an irrational fear of the dark to the equation and you can just imagine the kind of delightful dining experience I had at Dans Le Noir.

What I LOVE, however, is anything remotely experimental, weird and incredibly nonsensical; which is how some people have described this dining experience. Once I read those reviews I just knew I had to try it. My adventurous spirit will override all other senses each and every time!

Dining in the dark..

As much as we would all love to fly to Paris with just a credit card in our wallet and a smile on our faces, this may not always be feasible; nor all that great to be honest. I once found myself abroad for the week-end having forgotten to pack underwear (who on earth does that?) and I actually resented having to waste a whole morning in the City of Love roaming department stores for ones I liked. I realized then that the only shopping spree I truly appreciate is the utterly superfluous one. Or one at Victoria’s Secret.

Anyhow...packing for a few days away is not rocket science, I know, but I reason you may appreciate some tried-and-tested tips nonetheless.

Top 5 things NOT to pack for a week-end getaway

Do you spend your lunch-break scouring deals on Kayak and checking out reviews on Trip Advisor? Does your dog growl when you get home but leaps with bliss when he sees your house sitter? If you answered yes to these, I have some bad news. You, my fellow nomad, may be a travel-addict.

Travel is like a drug, it affects people of all ages and for all sorts of different reasons. Some people travel to relax, others to explore new lands and discover foreign cultures. It matters not why, how or when one travels, as long as that itch is satisfied on a regular basis, then the travel-addict will remain calm, cool and collected. Much like all other addictions, travel also has a way of sneaking up on you insidiously. You won’t realise you have a problem, of course; not until a visiting friend asks you why your shower caddy is full with miniature shampoo bottles and why there are 27 pairs of fluffy white hotel slippers next to your front door.
