My oh my, it’s been a while since I’ve written about my favorite region in Spain: La Rioja! Never heard of it? It’s ok, most people haven’t. By chance you have, it’s most likely from the red wine the region is world famous for or the the Camino de Santiago, the pilgrimage that cuts across [...]

San Juan de Gaztelugatxe on the Basque Coast, source, Flickr Creative Commons Spain is such a culturally diverse, vibrant and enthralling country. It often feels like a dozen small countries rolled into one. There is so much to see and do, which is why when people only go to the Big Four (my own invention) [...]
It’s been a while since I’ve highlighted a new Pincho of the Week on my blog! I love the pincho and tapa culture around Spain, especially when it comes to trying out new and often wild taste combinations. I try to always try something new and different, like kangaroo and avocado or pineapple and shrimp [...]
The other day my Spanish friends brought me to another classic pincho bar on the famous Laurel street in Logroño. Quite literally a hole in the wall, Bar Cid is easy to miss and I hungrily hop from my favorite champi mushroom pincho to my favorite brochette with goat cheese, Spanish ham and raspberry sauce. [...]
If Spain knows how to do one thing well, it’s sandwiches. There are so many types and varieties of sandwiches to be found in Spain, I can’t even begin to name them all. Bocadillos, bocata, un sandwich, montaditos and bocatitas are just to name a few. Spain keeps it simple when it comes to sandwiches, [...]
Source The lights dimmed over a crowd of several thousand people, all packed in like sardines at Logroño’s sports stadium. It was so hot and I was sweating right though my red soccer jersey with a giant flag of Spain tied around my neck like a royal cape. My friends and I nervously sipped our [...]
Logroño’s pincho scene hasn’t changed too frequently since I arrived last September. Comforted by familiar faces and dishes, the infamous Laurel street bursting with pincho bars that seem unchanged for decades. Change comes slowly in Spain, if it comes at all, something I both love and hate here. Around San Juan and Laurel, there are [...]
There is a fab new trend hitting pincho bars in Logroño! I’m in foodie heaven! Instead of serving up a little portion of something yummy skewered on a slice of bread like many of the traditional pinchos around town, many of the newer gastro-bars offer small portions of really delicious dishes combined with a small [...]
So I’ve been interviewing various expats in different regions all over Spain for my Expat Files series, and I thought I would share the spotlight in La Rioja with friend and fellow blogger, Rebecca. You guys have heard me go on and on about how much I love La Rioja, where my favorite wineries, pincho [...]
source In Logroño the variety of pinchos available can be somewhat daunting and overwhelming. With dozens of bars to chose from, where to begin? However, I have always been a half glass full kinda girl, so I prefer to think of it as so many new pinchos to try! You can find everything here, from [...]
Who is Young Adventuress?
I'm Liz, and I got my first taste for traveling and Spain when I was 16 years old. On my own, 8 years and 25 countries later, my wanderlust has only grown and the list of countries I want to visit longer. Nowadays I call Logroño, Spain my home, where I split my time between teaching English, writing and traveling. Follow my adventures as I wander, eat, and photograph my way around the world.
