Discovering Gracia’s Soul Through Food

When Devour Barcelona Food Tours announced that they would be doing food tours through Barcelona’s village-like Gracia neighbourhood, I wanted in. So, when only two weeks into their official existence, I happened to be in Barcelona I knew that rambling around the streets of Gracia, under the guidance of the lovely Renée, would be the perfect way to spend [...]

How To Eat Out Like A Local In Spain

I read a great quote the other day.“When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable.” Damn, I couldn’t have put it better myself. One of the things I love the most about travelling is discovering the difference between customs and [...]

10 Reasons Why I am Totally in Love With Tarifa

On the Costa de la Luz in the South of Spain, where the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet, there is a small whitewashed town that is home to less than 18,000 people. But despite its size, the small town of Tarifa has been placed on the tourist map for a several reasons. Firstly, it’s [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
