Romanian cuisine is quite meat oriented. Yet, surprisingly, it is fairly easy for vegetarians and even vegans to eat local food all over the country. Sounds contradictory, right?

Our short trip to Bologna was inspired by the desire to eat and learn a little more about the gastronomy of the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. Even though Bologna is not in the same overly touristic route as other Italian cities such as Rome, Venice or Florence, it may … more »
Europe might not sound like the most affordable destination, but Portugal proves surprisingly affordable. Historically, travelers have overlooked Portugal. However, I am happy to notice that Portugal welcomes more and more visitors each year. You can easily get to Lisbon — Portugal’s capital — from anywhere else in Europe. There are plenty … more »
Mexican cuisine has got to be one of the most misrepresented when it comes to the international dining scene.
