In recognition of World Food Night, which is being held next Friday, this week’s travel snap is of a delicious bowl of fish benechin that I helped prepare in The Gambia.
You can find a recipe for this spicy traditional dish on World Food Night’s website under ‘News’ from a great new Gambian cook book that I will shortly be reviewing. Next weekend I’ll be hosting a Gambian feast for WFN with recipes from this book and my friends will be picking out their favourite dishes.
Levi Roots, who I interviewed in my last post, is a great fan of WFN which is being promoted by the UK charity Refugee Action. Like him I think it’s a wonderful way to spend time with friends, discovering food from around the world and supporting those of have had to flee their homeland and start a new life in a foreign land. So why not join me and cook-up an international feast, invite a few friends round and support Refugee Action?

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.

Rent a car
Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

When I’m travelling, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.
