Bacon makes everything tastes better. Whether or not this statement is true doesn’t change this simple truth: the bacon craze is sweeping the nation. It’s hard to watch ANY food related show without hearing some remark on the glory of pig. However, if you’re real serious about pig then there is only one answer: Spain. A trip to Spain for a pig-lover is the equivalent to a trip to Japan for a sushi lover. They are SERIOUS about their pig!

Cured ham, in particular is one Spanish specialty. Locals have been curing ham for thousands of years, and last year alone Spain sold over 40 million hams. The pride and joy of Spain comes with their Iberian pigs. The secret is in the diet. The Iberian pigs have long feasted on the local acorns, which are known to give the pigs a nutty, unique flavor. The acorns are also filled with oleic acids, a healthy fat which is believed to further intensify the flavors of the Iberian pigs.

Travelling to a favourite destination is probably on everybody’s wish list. Who would not want to soak in the sun on a pearly white beach, with the sea gently lapping at your feet? It is probably one step away from paradise. If you were to ask a mother of two, she would still be very hesitant to say that she is any where near paradise – any guesses why? Well, coming to think of it, the answer is pretty simple – the cost of travel today.

Beauty, they say, is in the eye of the beholder. What is comfortable to a fifteen year old might not be so for his Mom or Dad. This article looks at travel from the point of view of young boy of fifteen. He is all set out to go out on this school trip with a few of his friends. Travelling in groups can be a lot of fun provided you know where you are going and you are comfortable with the people with whom you are going to travel with. Before going any further, let me reiterate that this entire trip is supervised by three teachers, whose duty it is to ensure the safety and well being of each child.

The grill’s smoking and the wind in the outdoor spot you’ve camped yourself at for two hours now is wafting the smells of grilling meat. The staff brings out a round of brews the establishment produces. You look around the wooden bench and the flushed happy faces fill you with mirth. You lift your mug for a toast and let the beer slip into your throat, tasting of hops or barley and that usual tang of fermented alcohol. Good times indeed.

Though the beer garden is a German invention, there are already incarnations of these kinds of establishments all over the world. Here are some of the beer gardens worth lugging some mugs around in.

Puerto Penasco: A Lesser Known Mexican Vacation Spot

By

puerto_penasco

Puerto Penasco is a beautiful city located by the shore of the Gulf of California. The name translates to “Rocky Point” in English. This beautiful city is a gorgeous vacation spot for families and couples that prefer a quiet vacation. Cancun and other well known Mexico resort areas are great, but if you want something a little closer to what Mexico is really like, Puerto Penasco is the place to go.

The actual area of the city is large, but there aren’t very many people or buildings crowding the area. There are tons of wonderful restaurants, beaches, hotels, and shopping areas to nab great locally made things. Puerto Penasco is the closest beach for people in New Mexico and Arizona, making it a very popular spring break destination for college students. It doesn’t get as crazy as other Mexico spring break destinations, but if you prefer fewer crowds then don’t visit here in April.
