Olde Beach Bakery & Salt and Wood Collective

If I was to tell you that one of the best bakeries I have ever visited is in Waikanae, New Zealand, would you believe me? I’ve visited 46 countries, so it might take me a little while to convince you. I can assure you though, they’re onto a good thing in Waikanae. About a month […]

Berbere

Berberè Pizzeria, Bologna

If there was one thing we were going to eat while in Bologna, it was going to be pizza. We are not big pizza eaters. Avoiding carbs, it doesn’t sit too well in our stomachs. However, I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity for a well made Italian pizza. A fellow pilot had recommended Berberè […]

Firenze

The Food of Firenze

I first visited Firenze (Florence) in 2010. A short stop jammed between a trip to Rome and Venice,  I don’t remember too much. It was certainly hot, and it was busy. In fact, one of the few things I recall about the trip is eating a delicious sandwich somewhere near the Palazzo Vecchio. The food of […]

Eating Out in Lisbon

We recently visited Lisbon for the first time. I’d never been to Portugal, and it was an interesting experience. While I absolutely loved the Azores and Porto, Lisbon didn’t quite do it for me. I’m not sure what it was. Whether it was the amount of people that offered to sell us drugs or the […]

Eating My Way ‘Round the World

I’ve said it many times – I’m not a foodie. I don’t eat particularly fancy food, and I don’t have a sophisticated palate. What I do have is a love of travel, and exploring new food and cuisine experiences as part of that travel. I’ve spent many years eating my way ’round the world, and […]

Healthy Eats in Dubai

It’s well known that Dubai has something like 20,000 eateries. I’d say around 10,000 of those claim to serve healthy food, without really having any idea what the concept means. Some of the lists of ‘healthy’ options are rather interesting…. would you call a place that only serves giant brioche cheeseburgers and freak shakes a […]
