Travel blogs are full of naff advice about packing. My advice might also be useless but there are some jokes in there and I don’t promote expensive rucksacks.
A conversation I have with everyone I meet in Bristol…
Me: “I live in Totterdown”
Them: “Oh? I’ve heard of it but never been there”
Yep, just like London there’s north-of-the-river snobbery in Bristol.
What the residents of Clifton, Redland and Horfield don’t know is that south Bristol is lush. If they ever crossed the Avon, they might find out. But until then, us south Bristol residents can have all the fun.
Here are my favourite places to eat, drink and hang out in Totterdown (a.k.a that hill with the colorful houses).
In 2010 I spent 6 months eating my way round Sicily. This is the place where I got my food education (of sorts).
It’s where I discovered the true taste of oranges.
It’s where I learned that 3 decent ingredients are enough to make a meal.
It’s where I decided I liked seafood.
And it’s where I finally understood why it’s worth travelling for the perfect sandwich.
I returned to Palermo for a week in April 2015 and attempted to update this important ‘research’.
There are some excellent places to eat in Palermo and none of them will bankrupt you.
Ice cream in Palermo is a bit hit and miss. Generally, the nicer the location, the crappier the gelato. Fortunately there are plenty of good ice cream shops, you just have to look a little harder. So nip down a side street or round the back of a monument if you want your gelato to be properly tasty.
