Postcards from Álora: Dicovering the charm of Andalucía

The hot day turned into a mild evening, as we sat on the terrace discussing life in the valley over a glass of wine. Kenneth started to talk about his organic lemon groves to which we guiltily confessed; we already know how good the lemons are. We ate some today. It may seem mad that a person [...]

Lately I have been eating…V2.0

It’s that time of the month again. The one where I want to share something interesting with you, but the realisation that the interesting things that have occurred in my life lately have mostly just involved, well, food. From the hills of Galicia, to the heat of Andalucía, but not forgetting the laid-back pace of [...]

The Food That Never Stops: Casa de Santo Antonio, Porto

When I sat down at Casa de Santo Antonio in Porto and the beret topped waiter explained that he will just bring us petiscos until we tell him that we have eaten enough, I knew that I was going to be in for a different kind of eating experience. No menus to bother with? No decisions to make? Yes please! Petiscos is a [...]

5 Restaurants in Seville That TripAdvisor Got Right

It’s no secret that I don’t agree with the review system on TripAdvisor. Despite it being one of the world’s biggest websites in aid of travel planning, it is seriously flawed. But, anyone who has travelled to a new place knows that, every now and then, TripAdvisor does come in handy. For example, if I decide I’m [...]

Best of Europe: July

Well, well, well. Another month has flown by and I can hardly believe it’s August already. Because you know, after August comes September, and not long after September the hopeful department stores start putting up their Christmas decorations. I digress. But now I am enjoying August with a six week break from work, which means [...]

3 Cities in Northern Spain That No Food Lover Can Miss

Poor Northern Spain. With Southern Spain showing off its sights and mights down there, Northern Spain sometimes just fades into the background. Most travellers beeline for overpowering Moorish monuments such as the Alhambra in Granada, the famous (and sometimes not so famous) beaches along the coastline of the Costa del Sol, and Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and surrounding [...]

Rambling around the Mercado de Abastos in Santiago De Compostela

A few months ago I was at a restaurant in Santiago de Compostela with some passengers from the tour that I was leading through Spain. The ever attentive waiter at the restaurant came and asked my group if they liked the food. Instead of responding a conventional “yes, every things great”, one of my passengers [...]

Chowing Down on Seafood in Finisterre

Recently when I was staying in Santiago de Compostela I decided to take a trip out to Finisterre. I had been to Santiago de Compostela a few times before, but I had never ventured outside the town. Although I knew that the Mercado de Abastos in Santiago de Compostela has some of the best offerings of [...]

Why You Should Visit Costa del Sol’s Best Kept Secret

When my lovely boyfriend decided that he would take me away on a little holiday during our week off work (okay, to be fair I didn’t give him much choice as we wanted to squeeze in a beach side escape but I had no money) he suggested we pay a visit to Nerja on Spain’s Costa [...]
