American expat and maven for living in Spain, writing about experiencing Europe. Fan of artisan vermouth and tapas but stealing sips from hubby's craft beer.
Gastronomy-lured traveler and Europe romantic, a balance of exploration and leisure is my blueprint for a great trip. Growing up in a diverse family, I adore local culture and authentic experiences, especially those involving cuisine and people.
I'm usually found with my travel partner husband getting to know the owners of a local 'tasca' while indulging in their house-made vermouth. My ideal travel day involves a spa and peaceful sunset after an active day tasting my way around a charming historic center.
For me, the highlight of traveling is meeting fellow travelers and the locals.
