Muri Beach Club Restaurant

The restaurant is inside the hotel complex which, in turn, has a massage and beauty spa service. SETTING The decoration of the place has an excellent taste. The location is one of the best on the entire island. With the islets of Muri in front of the beach, the view is paradisiacal. The hotel has a beautiful swimming pool with lounge chairs. The internal space of the pool is framed by the mountains and has a very good selection of themes in its functional music.SERVICE The bartenders and service staff are very friendly and helpful. Regarding the massage service, although it is not the objective of this post, it is regular, I do not recommend it. FOOD & MENU In special events with a buffet or with starter, main course…

Truffles: search experience & tasting menu

The experience begins in a local winery of Castellón, where wines and delicious regional cheeses are tasted. From there, the group heads to the mountain with the guide, who explains the history of the place and how the family started the mycological business. The experience of looking for truffles with dogs trained in the Spanish bush is magical. They detect their scent and dig them up when an ordinary observer has difficulty even distinguishing truffles from stones. Watching them sniff out truffles, buried several inches below the surface, is truly unique. The winter truffle season is from mid-November to the end of March; however, summer truffles are also found from the beginning of May to the end of August. Some are suitable for consumption and the spores of the others…

Riding a motorcycle brings benefits to physical and emotional health

Much has been said about the practical benefits of riding a motorcycle. Those that are measured with graphs and statistics, such as how quickly you can arrive at a place, how much we save on fuel and the significant difference in pollution levels in comparison to a car, but we all know that those are not the only benefits of traveling by motorcycle. Those who ride as we do knows that there are many other and more significant benefits, among them, the inexplicable passion and adrenaline that they awaken. Traveling by motorcycle not only brings practical benefits, it also brings benefits to physical and emotional health. Speaking of the emotional, I am sincerely convinced that few therapies are equal to a pleasant motorcycle ride; one of those that really makes…

On The Beach -OTB-

AMBIENCE The OTB esthetic is very nice. With an island-style, thatched roof, nice tables and chairs. The tables are covered by white tablecloths, with cloth napkins, decorated with blue led lights inside bottles, double cutlery service for the entrance, the main course and the dessert.

Toa Moana Beach House

Toa Moana is a two-bedroom Airbnb rented house in Rarotonga, Cook Islands. A few meters from the house you can find a passage with turtles, rays and thousands of fish of different colors. You have to be very careful and visit the passage only at low tide because the currents are very strong and can drag you into the open ocean, even with flippers it's extremely difficult to compensate the strengh of nature. INSTALLATIONS The house has two rooms with double beds, a full kitchen, a bathroom/laundry room, a large living room with ocean views and a beautiful deck also with an incredible view.

The Rarotongan

On your trip to Rarotonga, Cook Islands, it's interesting to visit the different hotel establishments besides its beautiful beaches. Here we go with the review of the restaurant located at The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Lagoonarium, one of the most traditional hotels on the island. The coral reef in front of the hotel constitutes a marine reserve (Aroa Lagoon Marine Reserve), making it an excellent place to snorkel. AMBIENCE The restaurant's space faces the ocean so the view is unbeatable. However, the decoration would need a restyling, the colours of the furniture, railing and deck are not the best. The place does not have functional music either. The hotel has kayaks and stand up paddles to take a ride in the lagoon, which is an excellent alternative to do before…

Mamba Village

If you have a stopover in Nairobi, you won't be able to do much in the free shop and airport lounges. Without bringing your valuables, take advantage of that time to do some nearby activities. One of the places worth visiting is Mamba Village in Mombasa, the largest crocodile farm in Africa. You will be able to take some pictures with baby crocodiles in your arms, see how they feed the big ones, feed the ostriches, take a photo with the turtles and meet the snakes. You can also, if you wish, take a horse or a camel ride. The facilities have a restaurant with exotic dishes on their menu, made with crocodile, ostrich and zebra meat. The beaches of Mombasa are also very nice if you want to take…

One of the activities you can do on a stopover in Nairobi is to go for an exotic meal at Carnivore, a well-known Kenyan restaurant. There you will be able to order a good wine with crocodile meat, venison, pork or beef. AMBIENCE Considering that we were in Kenya, the setting is acceptable. The waiters have colorful costumes. Outside, the tables facing the garden are more pleasant but surrounded by mosquitoes, and as we decided not to take malaria pills due to their adverse effects, we decided to sit inside the restaurant. SERVICE Their staff is very friendly, always smiling and attentive to customer needs. MENU & FOOD We expected more, but we liked to try game meats anyway. The crocodile meat was undercooked, it seemed to have been reheated…

Prision Island & Giant Tortoises – Changuu – Zanzibar

If you decide to spend a vacation in Zanzibar, it is worth spending half a day to get to know this small island. Changuu functioned as a prison and as a quarantine centre, where they located all the yellow fever patients so they did not infect the healthy population. The island is only 800 meters long by 230 meters at its widest point. The British Prime Minister of Zanzibar, Lloyd Mathews, bought the island in 1893 and built a prison complex to send rebellious prisoners and slaves. The island also functioned as a coral mine, which was highly sought after due to its solidity. Corals are part plant, part animal, and part rock. The plant component of coral (algae) needs to photosynthesize like all the plants to generate oxygen and…

Masai tribe at Zanzibar & Kenia

In Zanzibar, we had the incredible experience of meeting various exponents of the Masai tribe. How? Simply talking with them on the beach and going to lunch where they normally eat. We went with the Masai group to eat at a restaurant where they usually meet at the north of Zanzibar, Tanzania, we ate with our hands and drank from a shared jar with dark water that had been previously boiled. In their beginnings, they were a nomadic tribe of warriors and shepherds mainly located in Tanzania and Kenya. Even today they keep many of their habits, rituals and initiation ceremonies. Its activity is mainly livestock (goats, cows and sheep). Many of them are semi-nomadic, they change places so their animals can graze on different lands. They live with cattle…

Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre – South Africa

Several factors threaten the subsistence of African animals: climate change, droughts, pollution, cutting down of natural spaces to develop arable land, illegal hunting, poisoning of felines by ranchers and the high demand for wild species due to different beliefs. The excessive growth of the population favours the advance of the settlements on the green spaces also affects the loss of the natural habitats for several species. Unfortunately, day by day, many animals are hunted, killed and/or injured. In this context, Moholoholo deals with rescuing injured animals, predators that hunt sheep or cows, or sick animals in order to protect, heal, feed them and promote their reproductive conditions. The donations of visitors who come to this rehabilitation centre help the organization to implement rescues, maintain the facilities and buy food for…

Tour & Tasting at Holden Manz Vineyard

The Franschhoek Valley in South Africa is full of nice wineries and surrounded by beautiful mountains. To take a walk through the vines, try some exquisite international dishes and have a wine tasting, do not hesitate to drive a few kilometres from Cape Town to discover this beautiful corner of South Africa. We chose the Holden Manz winery and the experience was very positive. The food was excellent, the wines too and the views were really stunning. The establishment also has a boutique hotel that worth a visit. The winery produces mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot, which they sell not only within South Africa but also to Europe and to the United States. They also produce rosé and white wines: Chardonnay, Chenin and some blends.
