I know that there are plenty of food-loving (or should I say greedy) folk out there, as any time I’ve written something on food I get lots of Yum Yum comments.  So I thought I’d give you the low down on what we ate in Sardinia, remembering that Sardinia is actually a province of Italy, so this is also about eating Italian in general.

Before I went to Rome earlier this year, I have to admit I didn’t really get it about eating out in Italy. What I couldn’t work out is how you could stuff yourself with all those courses - I mean antipasto, then pasta, then a full main course! If I was at home a plate of pasta would be plenty.

  • Window shopping for coral in Sardinia

    When on holiday I spend idle hours window shopping which I could never afford at home. I admire the handicrafts in shops designed to tempt the relaxed holiday-maker into parting with their money. Here on the coast of Sardinia there are many jewellery shop

  • Anyone for roast guinea pig? - in Peru

    Depending on your point of view you may find the Peruvian delicacy of roast guinea pig as a horrid way of treating our squeaking furry friends or just another local speciality to try. My friend Joanne decided to keep an open mind and give it a try on her

  • We were silhouetted! at Rovinj in Istria, Croatia

    We’d just climbed up through the narrow cobbled streets of Rovinj, to the cathedral square with a great view of the sea at the top of the hill. As we rested on the wall among the other tourists, the silhouette man appeared from no-where. With his sharp li
