Winter Warmer: Hot Apple Cider

Hot Apple Cider

A recent trip to Hobart (you can read all about it here) led to the discovery of my new favourite drink. Hot apple cider. Warm, spicy and slightly tart; there’s nothing more comforting to drink on a cold winter’s night. Every night, for the 3 nights we were in Hobart, we headed down to Knoppies, a Hobart institution, to get a glass of this delicious drink. Maybe it was because I couldn’t feel my face, fingers or toes after being in the bitter Tasmanian cold but I swear it was the best beverage I had ever had.

10 Things You Must Eat in Oahu, Hawaii

10 things you must eat on Oahu, Hawaii

 

If there is one thing that everyone should know about me it’s that I love food. I know what you’re thinking. Who doesn’t love food? But I seriously love food. The majority of my holidays revolve entirely around food. When planning my next trip away, the first thing I think of isn’t how beautiful the beach will be or what monument I will visit, it’s the food I will eat there.

Croissants in Paris, gelato in Florence, New York hot dogs, Chicago deep dish pizza, Key Lime Pie in Florida. I want it all.

So it was with slight trepidation that I planned my recent trip to the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Having been to Fiji and Vanuatu, I’ve had previous run-ins with Polynesian food and have been left wanting. Taro, more like Ta-No.

Friends and family had regaled me with their tales of eating in Hawaii. American fast food chains serving super-sized meals seemed to be the go-to Hawaiian dining experience.

Not one to shy away from a food challenge (I run away from all other challenges life throws my way), I made it my mission to seek out the best of what Hawaii had to offer.

You can make sure you don’t miss out on trying any of this amazing food by getting this Hawaii Food Checklist for your trip.
