About Amber & “The Husband”
I am a recovering tax attorney from the largest law firm in the world and am trying to eat my way around the globe. As a professional eater, I travel throughout the world in search of great eats, amazing wines, and unique experiences, all while traveling With Husband In Tow. I encourage others to do the same, exploring the world through food and travel.
Ah yes, another in the luxury! travel blogging space, which generally overlaps only circumstantially if at all with the way we travel …
… what would you call our typical mad dashing between obscure World Heritage nominations anyway? “Adventure For History Nerds” maybe? …
… but hey, we’re always interested in other perspectives. For instance, let’s take a look at their
Traveling for wine is becoming more popular as many travelers seek something a little more from their travel experiences. The concept of “wine tourism” is just as popular as adventure tourism or ecotourism to the right kind of travelers. And, finding the best wine tours is an important part of the travel research process. Please want to go wine tasting while traveling and they love wine tasting tours, whether half day, full day or multi-day.
Sure, a trip to the wine store is easy and convenient, particularly if you are looking to pick up a few bottles for your wine fridge at home. But wine tasting when traveling opens up a whole new world. One where it’s possible to try different types of wines, many of which you may never have heard of before. And, the best wine tasting tours even offer a chance to meet the winemaker, a truly special experience…
Most of the list is unsurprising, but they include … India?? Really?
Wine tasting in India is so special because it’s unusual. Most people don’t even know that India has a wine industry. There are only 8 wine areas in this vast country. Goa is one of those areas, but it is Nashik, however, east of Mumbai, that is known as the wine capital of India. This is the area known as the Deccan Plateau…

Technically, BuiltWith tells us it’s a standard WordPress + JetPack setup, and as always we recommend Dreampress as your best choice for that, free Jetpack Professional and all; and an robust collection of monetization plugins. Looks a bit better than that standard WordPress appearance though … ah, they’re using the Divi theme. Hmmm, maybe that’s worth looking into if we ever decide to try to look nicer here.
So, if you’re a lifestyle traveler, this looks like an excellent blog indeed; light on the adventure and offbeat destination sides that appeal to us — although we do note they were just in Mauritius, which is a pretty solid candidate for “offbeat,” can you place it on a map? — so we’ll keep tabs on Twitter, extra perspectives are always fun!
