Re: Walking Tours in Andalusia

Hi Pheymont I wouldn't worry about the wine and tapas portion. Things are really inexpensive her, and the tapas has been universally good. It's easy to get three or four tapas to share and a couple of glasses of wine for 15 Euro. As for the tours, we didn't take any, but I think for one day in Cordoba it would be a good idea because I think that day may feel really busy. For Sevilla, I have a mixed opinion, I really love to wonder around, get lost and then navigate my way out...but thats...

Thanks so much! We're also the wanderers, but in a new city we sometimes find a walking tour is useful either for orientation upfront, or to clear up questions about things we've noticed. The wine and tapas tour is semi on the radar more for the opportunity to meet new people than to have a drink and a snack. Picking those things carefully, we've been able to have time with other travelers from other countries (not always English-speaking). I'm looking forward to our trip...your pictures are...

Hi Pheymont Try this: Naturanda.com The gentleman's name is David Guillen Garrido. We took a tour of Italica with he and a lovely young lady today. It turned out to be a private tour and we were very impressed. They will do other tours as well. I think we will try them for Triana and are trying to organize something for Baelo Claudia as well.

Re: Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory Tour

This may be a first on TG, "Don't go here". But your pain is worth it to us, for the garden pictures, very nice. I was there in the early '80s and all I recall is the shop.

Re: Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory Tour

DrFumblefinger ·
Some folks might be fascinated by the place, PM, but I found it a disappointment. It would be at the bottom of my list of recommended things to do on the Big Island. And yes, the garden was a redeeming feature. The gift shop was tantalizing, but over-priced.

Re: Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory Tour

PHeymont ·
I wouldn't want to be accused of being anti-Hershey or anything (might be my prejudice about their barring the import of REAL Cadbury milk chocolate), but Hershey has a bad record on factory tours. They used to have a great one at their factory in Hershey, PA, but closed the tour about 25 years ago and replaced it with an amusement-style ride—a little like Small, Small World—that showed trees and natives and ships, and absolutely no sense of how workers turn the nibs into chocolate in a real...

Re: Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory Tour

The macadamia tour doesn't sound all that different from the factory part of my visit to Charleston Tea Plantation . But that was just a small part and combined with the guided tour around the farm, it was good. Maybe a tea plantation needs to "cultivate" more goodwill than Hershey's macadamias.

Re: Anatomy of a trip, Oaxaca: Mezcal

Great piece, PortMoreby! Did you find your drink? Could it be that it's pulque instead of mezcal?

An excellent report Port Moresby! The photos add greatly to my understanding of the special 'flavour' of some of these exotic Mexican drinks
Comment

Re: Anatomy of a trip, Oaxaca: Mezcal

PortMoresby ·
Thanks Rob & Mac. Did I find my drink? I think more research may be needed. However, if it is pulque, unless I move to the Oaxaca countryside, it may be difficult to impossible to find it, unless I make my own 1/2 acre into a maguey farm. The sad thing is, in the Arizona canyon near the Mexico border that was home for 25 years, I had dozens of agave plants literally outside my front door, a missed opportunity. But, since I didn't scratch the surface in my quest to know something about...

Re: Anatomy of a trip, Oaxaca: Mezcal

PHeymont ·
I'm also not much of a drinker, and my limited choices tend to be "tropical" as in rum or tequila. Until this, I'd had no idea that mezcal was so varied and different from tequila, although both from agave. And now pulque? Thanks for helping with my "continuing education!"

I was in Turkey last May. Watching the evening shows in the outdoor theatre was really cold. The hotel staff came out with blankets for those without a heavy coat . You can buy any make of watch for under $10 ! Best Golf courses I've seen and all reasonably priced. The Montgomery Golf course was excellent. Look for Belek as an alternate place to stay. I really enjoyed it !

Re: A Street Food tour in Hanoi

PHeymont ·
Thanks for a great (virtual) meal! I love street food (and near-street) and just enjoyed a similar experience in Istanbul, where I put aside my "issues" with some foods and tried all...including my equivalent of the worm: kokorek, a dish of lamb or goat intestines roasted around sweetbreads. It's amazing how much of our hesitation can be in our heads, not in reality... Hope to see more about Vietnam!

Re: A Street Food tour in Hanoi

DrFumblefinger ·
That sure looks like a tasty evening, Linn! I've done a few food tours in my life and really enjoyed them. The guides know where the great spots are and you get a nice background narrative about the dish, the restaurant and the chef! Thanks for sharing this with us.

Re: A Street Food tour in Hanoi

Travellinn ·
Thank you both for the feedback. I really think tasting the local food is an important part of the travel experience, even though I then have to taste a few strange things... And usually, I end up being pleasantly surprised that the thinks I was hesitating to taste, actually was really good. Heading to Thailand tomorrow, and I am sure I will be challenged a few times during my two weeks there :-)

As you've probably seen on this and other Travel Blogs, travellers like to seek out the food and drink they get back home. But you've missed out on half the fun of travelling. Its great to find something that you want to include in your day to day list of essentials back home. I tried so many unknown desserts each day in Turkey last year - and by 5 pm - I was ready to burst. But what a day full of surprises . I was fortunate to be in an All Inclusive Hotel. The Hotel Restaurant had an in...

I've visited the Bacardi plant too, and remember being quite impressed by it. As I recall, the original was in Cuba and the family moved to P.R. to escape Castro. And I'm proud to see you standing after those free samples! Thanks for the post.

Re: A weekend...I don't know where...

Travel Rob ·
The cost seems pretty reasonable too. It is a good idea because it exposes you to cities that you wouldn't of picked on your own. Sometimes those cities end up being your favorites. I think TG's destination page is like that too. I now want to go so many places that were not remotely on my radar.

Re: Our Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg, Austria - Part Two

I took my wife on the Sound of Music tour from the old Chiemsee Armed Forces Recreation Center when the US Army occupied it. I remember on our bus as we drove away, the guide wanted us to show hands of who saw it just once, and went through the numbers to see who saw it the most. She never asked who never saw it which was only me. Still haven't seen it. Everyone ooohed and aaaahed when we arrived at the gazebo as I stood bewildered and I was the only one that didn't know the do-re-mi song...
