Eat out in La Sierra de Cádiz; Prado del Rey

Eat out in La Sierra de Cádiz; Prado del Rey

It’s hard not to eat out well in the province of Cádiz and Prado del Rey is no exception. This small town has an amazing range of gastronomic delights, local wines, an ecological farm and its own salt mine dating from Roman times. The busy high street is packed with bars and excellent restaurants and there’s a wonderful ambiente (atmosphere), especially on Friday evenings and weekends. In this post, I am going to tell you about Venta Rosario, a roadside…

Eat out in La Sierra de Cádiz; Benaocaz

Eat out in La Sierra de Cádiz; Benaocaz

So, for me a healthy approach is an important part of good writing and good, home-cooked food forms a part of that approach. When we take our retreat guests out for dinner, we look for places that use local products, cater for dietary requirements and provide good service. Benaocaz is home to two of my favourite restaurants. Nestled in the mountains on the road from Ubrique to Grazalema, Benaocaz has a long tradition of producing cheese, cured meats and leather…

Earn money and travel; 4 reasons why a working holiday is a great way to fund your trip

Earn money and travel; 4 reasons why a working holiday is a great way to fund your trip

A working holiday is a great way to get to know a place, have fun, earn money and travel at the same time. Unlike a whistle stop tour of a place or a couple of days overnight in a destination, a working holiday gives you a different perspective of the place you are staying in. As well as getting to live like a local and experiencing the area in an authentic way, rather than rushing around trying to cram in…

Eco-camping in Devon; a weekend at an eco-campsite

Eco-camping in Devon; a weekend at an eco-campsite

A weekend at an eco-camping retreat This summer I went to Tiverton for a weekend of eco-camping in Devon at Coombe Farm. Never having visited an eco-camping retreat in the UK before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Narrow country lanes led us to the entrance of Combe Farm and a spectacular view across the countryside. From there, a steep hill took us down to a parking area where we were able to park and forget about the car for…

Three key ingredients for a feel-good organic tapas breakfast or brunch at Beets n Roots, Bristol

What is a Beets n Roots breakfast? I was really excited to be invited for breakfast at Beets n Roots with the Bristol Bloggers and Influencers group. I’m a great fan of eating chemical-free food, so a visit to a café that’s organic for one of my favourite meals of the day promised to be a real treat. After a bit of research I discovered that Beets n Roots is a vegetarian and vegan café. I wasn’t really sure what…

Exquisite tapas in Andalusia: Bar El Cura, Trebujena, Cádiz

Tapas in Trebujena    Follow my blog with Bloglovin The white village of Trebujena, perched on the top of a hill overlooking the estuary and surrounded by marshes, is not on the tourist path.

When the saint comes dancing in

When the saint comes dancing in

Normally, on a weekday morning, I’d wake up to the sounds of daily life in the village.  A car revving up and reversing down the street. The neighbours shouting buenos dias as they go off to do their early morning chores. The bread van pulling up on the corner of the plaza. But, today is different. It’s a public holiday in the village in honour of the patron saint, San Blas (Saint Blaise) and it’s quiet all around. The first time I saw this festival it was barely…
