Eat healthy while you travel

One of the things I find most difficult when exploring is to eat healthy while you travel. A balanced nutritional diet is fairly important to keep your energy levels up and brain active.

The problem wasn’t always the cost of buying the food, other things like storing fresh food and sourcing it in some places could prevent me from making better food choices. Continue reading Eat healthy while you travel

Monaco: Day 17 of 17 Happy St Paddy’s Day

I decide to go and look for breakfast.  I find a cafe called Caffe Due Merli Savona in a small street near a church and escape from the rain in there.  I order a latte and two croissants with a marmalade filling.  Well, this is how the lady describes it, but to me it tastes like apricot rather than the orange I am used to.

Italy: Day 16 of 17: Genoa a good place for a drink?

In the morning I speak briefly to Win and then she leaves before me.  I Look at the very limited free breakfast and decide a cup of tea will be enough for me.  My bus to get me back to Rimini leaves at 1030am.  I ask the guy in the Hostel San Marino to point to the bus stop so that I find it quickly.  I start to get a bit worried when the bus doesn’t show after 15 minutes.  A few minutes later I am happy to get on it.  It’s got quite a few locals on it (Russians).  We get to the train station on time which is good news for me as I want to go to the cash machine again.

Greece: Day 13 of 17 I can’t get no sleep
