Food is one of life’s great pleasures.  I love exploring places I visit through their cuisine, and learning about the culture through food and drink. On my travels I seek out the best Foodie Experiences to help you taste the very best of a region.  Good food & drink is always worth paying for, especially when made from quality ingredients by a local chef!

Budapest Wine Tasting Tour with Urban Adventures

Budapest Wine Tasting Tour with Urban Adventures

I hadn’t realised that wine was such a big deal in Hungary, but apparently, it is a BIG deal.  As I don’t drink beer I was on the look-out for fun things to do in Budapest that don’t involve beer, so I was thrilled when I came across a wine tasting in Budapest, which started just down the road from my hostel.  I signed up on the Airbnb Experiences page for a Budapest Wine Tasting Tour with Urban Adventures, and…

I had a complimentary guided tour courtesy of Palermo Street…

How to Eat Your Way Around Switzerland Without Blowing your Budget

So, how do you get all that Swiss…
