Santorini, gastro guides, the Madeira flower festivals and tumblr.
I love writing about food and travel and I am lucky enough to be able to spend a good part of my time doing it both for a living and for a passion. I have been quite busy doing a lot writing about both food, travel combining them over the past couple of weeks; it’s just that most of it hasn’t turned up on this blog, so I thought I would take a break and share some of what I have been up to with you.
You may have noticed a new badge on the blog (just to the left!) from Visit Greece. I have been guest blogging with them for a while now and I am really happy to say I have been named as one of their authentic guest bloggers! My latest post with them was related to romantic breaks around valentines day, but I think the Greek islands are a beautiful place to go any time of year and I am really looking forward to going back to Greece with Hana this summer. If you want to get a bit of romantic inspiration check out my post on the Romance of the Greek islands.
Okay, so I’m not quite done with Greece yet this month. In this gastronomic guide I look at the wonderful produce and foods of Santorini. Delish!
Spring brings a lot of great celebrations and festivals across the world. This month I took a look at one of springs most colourful festivals, the Madeira flower festival. Every year the Portuguese island celebrates with striking parades, a wall of flowers, flower carpets, markets and lots more. Just writing about it and looking out at a grey London sky makes me want to get on a plain now! Find out more about the Madeira flower festival in my guide.
So that’s a little of what I have been up to for the last week or so. I’ll be back with a new recipe on Russell’s Kitchen very soon!
