We spent the day with @hayesvan today, exploring the neighbourhoods tourists don't often visit. Loved the residential neighbourhoods and the wonderful local markets! More photos to come in my Stories! The heat is a touch less today but the humidity didn't let up, so I was a hot sticky news the whole day! 🤣 . . #kaveyeatsvietnam #vietnamesefood #visitvietnam #foodmarket #foodandtravel #travelphotography #foodstagram #fbc20uk #inspiremyinstagram #feedyoursoul #travelblog #instatravelling #discovertheworld #welivetoexplore #amazingview #openmyworld #instapassport

The Best Souvenirs to Buy in South Africa

Most organic stores in Cape Town stock Khoisan Rooibos Tea, but the most accessible place to find it is at the airport Telephone wire items tend to be most readily found in regions with Zulu communities, though you can also find them in the craft and souvenir stores of Cape Town and other large cities. But since glass beads made their way to the southern tip of Africa via Phoenician traders centuries ago, the best quality and most intricate modern Zulu beadwork has been made almost exclusively from tiny, colourful glass beads. Zulu beadwork is available at most markets and curio shops in South Africa, but three particularly good markets for beads are Greenmarket Square (Cape Town), Rosebank Sunday market (Johannesburg) and Victoria Street Market (Durban).

We flew from Hue into Hanoi today. This evening we wandered around and around the old quarter streets near our hotel before choosing a random bun cha place, followed by a seafood BBQ place, and finally a coffee place. No idea how I got down into those tiny stools, or back up again! . . On another note, some bastardy little insect has bitten my arse twice, and I have two swelling bumps to show for it. Leave my blood alone, you little fucker! . . #hanoi #hanoivietnam #kaveyeatsvietnam #hanoifood #foodandtravel #travelphotography #fbc20uk #inspiremyinstagram #welivetoexplore #earthpix #vietnamesefood #visitvietnam

The Best Souvenirs to Buy in Grenada

His focus on fair trade and increased profit for the farmers, sustainability across the process, and high quality chocolate, has been echoed by those who followed in his footsteps, including Belmont Estate Chocolate, Crayfish Bay Organic Estate, Jouvay Chocolate and Tri Island Chocolate. Since the birth of a thriving bean to bar chocolate industry on the island, the quality of Grenada chocolate is putting Grenada on the world chocolate lovers’ map. Considered the ‘Spice Isle of the Caribbean’, it’s only natural that Grenada’s spices make the perfect souvenir for yourself or for friends and family to commemorate your visit to the beautiful island. As one of the world’s top exporters of spices; you’ll find spices such as cinnamon, cloves, allspice, bay leaf, nutmeg, and mace for sale just about everywhere on the island of Grenada including on the streets, in the shops, and even on the beach!

Today we are in Hue. It's hot as Hades, and oppressive in the sticky heat; even at 9 am I was struggling. We visited one of the royal tombs and the Thien Mu Pagoda before taking a boat back into the city centre. . . I didn't realise that the last king of Vietnam passed away in France. He ruled as the king from 1926 to 1945. After abdication, at which time he moved to France, he was persuaded to return to Vietnam for two short periods, to serve as supreme advisor to Ho Chi Minh's government, and later as a head of state. He soon returned to France, however, and lived out his life in comfortable exile there. I think he still has descendants alive in France and wonder if any would ever want to move, to Vietnam, whether they feel Vietnamese at all themselves, and whether they would still be considered as the royal family by the Vietnamese people? Perhaps not, as the king was considered to be a political puppet of the French colonial regime by many. An interesting story. . The blue Austin in one of the photos was used by Thích Quảng Đức, a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk who burned himself to death at a busy Saigon road intersection on 11 June 1963, in protest at the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese government led by Ngô Đình Diệm. Images of his sacrificial protest shocked the world, and I clearly remember studying the incident at school in the 1980s. International pressure resulted in promises of reforms but these never happened and Diệm was deposed in an army coup backed by the USA. . . #kaveyeatsvietnam #hue #visitvietnam #history #vietnamesehistory #fbc20uk #inspiremyinstagram #feedyoursoul #travelblog #instatravelling #discovertheworld #unesco #beautifuldestinations #placetovisit #discoverearth #welivetoexplore #instapassport

Sabrina Ghayour’s Turmeric, Spinach & Sweet Potato Fritters

In her fourth cookery book, Bazaar, Sabrina Ghayour focuses her attention on vegetarian recipes, bringing her well-known flair for flamboyant, full-flavoured food to the realm of vegetables. Read our full review of Bazaar, then have a go at making Sabrina’s Turmeric, Spinach & Sweet Potato Fritters recipe, below. In this recipe, Sabrina pairs it with chilli to enhance the flavour of her spinach and sweet potato fritters. Put the sweet potato, spinach, turmeric, chilli flakes, eggs, flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl and mix well.

Arrived into Hue after a beautiful drive over the Hai Van Pass and a seafood lunch at Lap An Lagoon. This afternoon and evening we enjoyed a food tour of local dishes, by cyclo as I'm not comfortable astride motorbikes. Lots more delicious treats! . . #kaveyeatsvietnam #visitvietnam #hue #foodtour #foodandtravel #foodstagram #travelblog #travelphotography #fbc20uk #inspiremyinstagram #feedyoursoul #instatravelling #discovertheworld #welivetoexplore #theglobewanderer #instapassport

Bazaar by Sabrina Ghayour

I decided to trial the book with a few recipes that intrigued me for various reasons: Mushroom, Tahini & Harissa Spaghetti, inspired by Sichuan dan dan noodles (sounded … um … odd); Lemon, Black Pepper, Pecorino & Cabbage Rice The Lemon, Black Pepper, Pecorino & Cabbage Rice was a zesty, light, bright bowl of loveliness which I already want to experiment with, maybe adding peas and pea shoots next time (always a good sign when I want to play with a recipe for the fun of the dish) and far from the take on a creamy bowl of risotto I’d expected to get. Aubergine & Caramelised Onion Kuku (I also crumbled in a little feta as suggested in the recipe intro) was the most involved of the four recipes (precooking the aubergines is a must) and made a great alternative to the standard frittata-alikes I’d cooked in the past: the aubergines added body and umami alongside the sweet onions to make a filling and flavour-packed lunch, saffron-loaded for added loveliness. I’m looking forward to trying Rice & Vegetable Aash from the “Soups and Bowl Comfort” section, Carrot, Halloumi & Dill Balls from the “Light Bites & Sharing Plates“ section and the mouth-wateringly evocative Spiced Chocolate, Black Pepper & Coffee Mousse from the “Sweet Treats” section.

A wander around Hoi An central market today. We've been taking it easy as I've not been feeling 100%. We also picked up our tailored clothes and leather bags that we had made, really pleased with them! It's a gorgeous overcast day today, which I prefer as it's a little cooler. Tomorrow we are doing a cookery class. . . #kaveyeatsvietnam #foodmarket #foodandtravel #foodstagram #foodblog #fbc20uk #inspiremyinstagram #feedyoursoul #travelblog #instatravelling #discovertheworld #earthpix #welivetoexplore #theglobewanderer #openmyworld #awesomeglobe #instapassport @visitvietnam

Lovely day visiting My Son, plus a fishing village (for lunch and a basket boat ride), a fruit and vegetable allotment, and a pottery village. As is usual, I'm knackered! 🤣 . . #kaveyeatsvietnam #myson #vietnam #vietnamesefood #fishingvillage #basketboat #pottery #foodandtravel #inspiremyinstagram #welivetoexplore #travelphotography #travelblog
