All the best places I ate vegan food in Porto

Plant based pals rejoice: beautiful Porto is really excellent for delicious, creative and varied vegan food.  Saying that, I must admit that I found it marginally harder to find places to eat there than I did in Lisbon, but that was not because there was a shortage of vegan offerings; instead, every establishment owner seemed to have chosen the week of our holiday to go… Continue reading All the best places I ate vegan food in Porto

A reintroduction: 7 things you might not know about me

I realised recently that when I first started being so bold as to write about myself on the internet, I never properly introduced myself.
