In each new city we travel to, we attempt to 'do what the locals do'. Which meant eating pintxos in San Sebastian, but also attempting a new skill... skateboarding. Lets just say I will not quit my day job.
While most people think of Tapas for Spanish traditional cuisine, in the Basque region of Northern Spain, Pintxos (pronounced peen-chos) are their claim to fame.
Pintxos were traditionally a slice of baguette bread stacked with any type of food. To hold it in place, a cocktail stick or 'pintxo' was used. Now, Pintxos are open to much more than just that - and some are like little works of art.
After our stay in Le Croisic, we took our tiny little rental car and drove down to Saint-Émilion. It took just about 4 hours, which was the longest stretch during our week road trip through France & Spain. Saint-Émilion is just outside of Bordeaux, and some would say even more beautiful than Bordeaux! It is also a famed wine town known for its Grand Cru wine.
We actually only had less than 24 hours in this beautiful little town, as it was a quick stop on our way to Biarritz. So we tried to fit in as much as possible!
On our third night on our African Safari in Tanzania, after spending the day at Tarangire National Park we made our way to the Rhotia Valley Lodge.
The Rhotia Valley Lodge is perched high on top of a hill in rural Tanzania near Karatu, overlooking a beautiful valley. It is just on the border of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area rainforest which means the land is very fertile, and that is why we were surrounded by cornfields & sunflower fields.
But the Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge is so much more than just an accommodation... here are 5 reasons why you must visit the Rhotia Valley Lodge.
A look into our day and a half game drive through Tarangire National Park in Tanzania, Africa. This park is known as being the 'home of the elephants' - and it is so true! The elephants would get so close to the truck we could reach out and touch them - but of course I wouldn't as I was slightly scared of them...
