Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

Yes, Lisbon is lovely, but Porto – well, it’s pretty much perfect, in our book! Here at Taste Adventures, we are big fans of second cities and Porto is one of our favourites.  We visited it for the first time, last year and having enjoyed it so much, returned a few short weeks later, hungry for more… Not only is the city...

We began our tour of Valencia as we begin most town and city tours; by heading straight to the Central Market. This gives us a feel for the city and its people – there is something so interesting about seeing what local people are buying and eating. Also, it usually a good focal point and a means to orientate yourself...

Love him or loathe him, its impossible to ignore Salvador Dali. We’ve been staying in the heart of what is known as the Dali Triangle; Figueres, Portlligat and Pubol, the locations of his homes and studios. Therefore, we couldn’t leave here without a few words on the subject… Born (and now resting) in Figueres over 100 years ago, his legacy is everywhere;...

Our favourite example being Bodega El...

I duly scoured the internet for voluntary groups, but volunteering didn’t really seem to be a “thing”, in Spain at that time. Eventually my search led to the Workaway site, which quickly piqued my interest. Workaway is...

Taste of a place – County Clare Brian has the great fortune of hailing from the fabulous County Clare (“God’s own county” – don’t you know!), on the west coast of Ireland. Having friends and family there, we are fortunate to make regular trips home and of course, sample all the best that the area has to offer…. Whenever we visit Brian’s...
