Nice place to spend few days in the center of Santander. yesterday we spent all day at Playa del Carmel, then we profit of Pincho.. several booths all around the city… 2.5 euro, one pincho+glass of wine… each booth from one of Santander’s restaurants… each one eith its own recipes.. fish pincho, meat pincho… and several music groups playing in the streets.
we stop at several booths! then it takes more than two hours to go back from beach to the hotel, after mutliple pinchos and glass of wines. the best was pincho of roasted poultry with curry served with baked potatoes.
“We who wander around the World, we pause briefly in this community or that, and to us is but one flash of vague impression in a long series of such forgettable flashes. The people there are only dim figures looming momentarily out of the dust clouds of the trail. We travelers usually have a destination and a purpose in aming for it, and every stop along the way is merely one more milestone in our own progress. But in actuality the people living there had an existence before we came, and will have after we leave, and their own concerns – hopes and worries and ambitions and plans- which, being of great moment to them, might sometimes be worth remarking also by us passerby. We might learn something worth knowing, or enjoy a laugh of amusement, or garner a sweet memory worth treasuring, or sometimes even improve our own selves, by taking notice of such things.”
Why I decided to search for a job involving a lot of travels? Partially also because of Gary Jennings novel – The Journeyer –
Why am I doing this? Why start a blog? Well, writer Primo Levi once said “There are two kind of men: those who makes things just for their own sake and those who make things just to tell to the others. I belong to the second kind.”. So do I.
Who am I? Just some Italian guy now living and working in Switzerland. I travel a lot, thanks to my job as Feed, Food&Beverage Segment Manager for my Company. And I cook, as a hobby… I kind like also eating. Of course I also like to taste wine. So I am lucky: my job, my hobbies, everything match…
Then, I like to tell the others what I am doing, especially about food: that’s the reason for the blog.
I am going to publish comments, thoughts, quotes, anything… and of course I appreciate any kind of comment (more or less;)).
