Feast your eyes on these foodie walking tours, which reveal the flavours and culture of cities from Lisbon to Lima, Havana to Hanoi
Taste Portos tours are rooted in fundamental beliefs about the gastronomic scene in Portugals second city. First, Portuenses like to keep things simple: so, no fusion experiments. Second, its as much about the people behind the food, as the food itself. Food is an expression of culture, says US-born Carly Petracco, who founded Taste Porto in 2013 with her Porto-born husband Miguel and his childhood buddy Andr. We like to show whos doing the cooking, whos serving the food, whos supplying the ingredients, and so on.

It’s been nearly 10 years since we last said adieu to Gavin and Stacey (and Nessa and Smithy, of course).
But fans have never given up hope of another reunion and they’ve now been rewarded with the news that a second Christmas special is in the works.
Show creators James Corden and Ruth Jones – who also play on-off couple Nessa and Smithy – are uniting again to pen the one-off episode.
The original cast will all return, including Rob Brydon and Larry Lamb.

It told the story of Gavin (Horne), from Essex, and Stacey (Page), from Barr...Read More
If you and I met today, you might think I was naturally lean. Born with a high metabolism. Able to eat whatever I want without gaining a pound. Not going to lie, that would be amazing. But the truth is, growing up, I was always the big kid.
By the time I was 13 years old, I weighed over 200 pounds and struggled with losing weight, emotional eating, and diets that didn’t work. While most kids dreamed of becoming movie stars or famous athletes, my early inspirations were the knowledgeable dietitians I met every summer at fat camp. I was never normal. I was never small. The pediatrician’s office constantly told my parents, “She’s obese. She’s over the 100th percentile, she’s not even on the chart!”
At eight years old, I was sent to “fat camp...
1. Just because we’re autistic doesn’t mean we want special treatment, it just means that we miss some social queues and can be a bit slow to pick up the mood of a room. For example my autism manifests in an inability to tell emotions, I either think people are being aggressive or joking unless I know explicitly the attitude they are giving. Friends are easy because I get to know them and I can tell their tone 90% of the time, but people I’ve met for the first time, I’ll either make good friends with them because I think they’re joking or I’ll get in an argument with them because I think they’re being aggressive.

I’m a graphic designer and illustrator. I started my comic blog Tall N Curly back in 2012 to tell my story as a tall and curly-haired girl. Do you remember my previous post about “25 Problems I Face When Being A Tall And Curly-Haired Girl” here on Bored Panda?
I wanted to create some space in my life for something creative that had nothing to do with my work. By doing so, I realized I was telling the story of so many other women. Women, who, just like me, want and need to be reminded that it’s OK, fun and even special to be different and to own who they are.
Since I started my blog, I’ve had the opportunity to talk with so many amazing women who shared their own stories with me...Read More
