• My self-guided cycling trip through France

    Lance Armstrong I am not. In fact, my most recent bike riding has been limited to the occasional commute to work when the sun is shining, and even then I never really work up much of a sweat.

  • ANZAC Day: A day of remembrance

  • Why We Love It: Spain

    Here's the next in our Why We Love It series. In each of these blogs, we ask a Peregrine team member to tell you about their favourite place in the world. Today's blog has a focus Spain:

    Spain moves to a different rhythm than the rest of Europe. ‘Africa begins at the Pyrenees’ was the old saying of Europeans to the east and north of Iberian Peninsula. As demeaning as that sentiment might be, there is something ‘other’ about Spain and the Spanish. And that’s why I love it.

  • Don't go hungry in Hungary: Goulash recipe

    Hungary. What a beautiful and historical country of Eastern Europe. There's so many stories I'd love to tell you about, but I'll never forget the taste of Hungarian food. Because I do believe that experiencing Hungary’s food is the best way for learning about its culture and traditions.
