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

The Taste of a Place – Tangier (Before I go any further, I feel I need to qualify what follows with this disclaimer, we were in Tangier for less than 24 hours, as it turned out. As such, this is a far from an exhaustive review; more a whiff of Tangier….)   I had long been intrigued by Tangier. It all started many...

Our latest guest blog is from Lucy Bywater with a focus on green travel and the city of Marseille. We’ve been travelling in France for family holidays for years – Brittany coast, the Dordogne, Alsace, Pyrenees, camping, cheap gites, a bit of cycling, kayaking. About six years ago we discovered Marseille which seemed to offer something a bit different for a...

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...

My Girona (Or my 8 top reasons to visit this city) I’m a big fan of second cities. This Is Barcelona’s little sister and I have to say, I really like this city. It’s small, it’s welcoming and seems to be largely unspoilt by mass tourism. With its shadowy web of cobbled streets and medieval buildings, to its ochre coloured modernist mansions. From...

Our favourite example being Bodega El...

We first visited the beautiful town of Pals whilst working for a cycling/walking holiday company, several years ago. Pals was one of a series of impressive medieval towns and villages that our customers passed through (albeit very briefly) and though we were aware of the rice fields and the rice dishes of the area, we had little opportunity to explore...

This guest blog is written by our friend David Marshall - pictured below with Kety. David and Kety have been our good friends for many years, they’re experts in all things Croatian and lovers of good food, wine and company!  If you too have a love for a country, region, specific dish or type of cooking and would like to share it...

A few years ago, whilst living in Andalucia, I decided we should get out, meet new people and do something useful with our lives! 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...
