I get quite a kick out of watching this on the Twin Cities PBS. I love watching as Michael Portillo makes his way across Europe. And I especially love it when he visits some place and I end up saying out loud “I’ve been there!” But then again, I have an insatiable wanderlust and I could go broke traveling Europe.
I am and have always been fascinated by Europe, its customs, it’s culture and more importantly, it’s food and spirits. Bear in mind that one very unpalatable truth is I will never be a sommelier but it will never stop me from trying out as many varieties and bottles that I can find. Give me a passport and a method of paying off a VISA and I’d travel all over Europe like this guy has.
