#travel #blog A Taste For Travel


Welcome to the A Taste for Travel blog. If you love food, drink and sun destinations you’ll feel right at home here.

Since 2009, we’ve been exploring  the world’s most amazing destinations bringing back news about luxury resorts, exciting restaurants and products as well as recipes, travel tips and advice to help readers discover the best of Mexico, the Caribbean, Latin America and southern Europe.

Our focus is on locally-sourced ingredients, innovative products and authentic experiences that are kind to the planet, people and animals…

You know, definitely think we need to start adding some recipes to this blog, cooking seems to turn up pretty darn often on these high traffic sites, doesn’t it?

Not that we can cook ourselves, mind you, but as we mentioned last week we have @PatsitKobkaew the best live-in chef in Thailand handy as a consultant, and we are quite sure she can outdo any of these other non-Thai chef. Easily.

As for the coverage, it’s fairly standard tourist destinations pretty much it seems, about the wildest we find with some quick clicking is

Technically, BuiltWith tells us it’s a standard WordPress setup, and as always we recommend Dreampress as your best choice for that, free Jetpack Professional and all; and a pretty standard set of plugins as well.

So yep, if the Caribbean and Latin America are your focus, this looks like a solid resource, go check it out!
