A sail along Casco Bay is an unforgettable experience, especially when you’re sailing on an authentic 20th century wooden schooner that’s been restored to its original glory. I went on the 3:30pm sail with Portland Schooner to enjoy some of Maine’s most beautiful sites from the water.

David’s Been Here is in the Castilla y Leon region of Spain, touring the beautiful city of Zamora. Here David tries out one of the city’s smallest, but most delicious restaurants, La Oranja. Based in the central district of town close to the Plaza Mayor, this local restaurant prides itself off serving simple cuisine with strong foundations. Order any of their delicious plates or dive into the tasting menu that David tries here, which for 50 Euros gets you a seven-course meal (excluding wine). Take a culinary tour of this tasting menu as David and the owner walk us through each delicious plate- all the way down to dessert. Truly an amazing meal, head to Restaurant La Oranja in Zamora, and find all the city’s top eats in the David’s Been Here Guide to Castilla y Leon, now available for your Kindle as well.

Roasted lamb dishes are served with lamb baked in the oven until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Minimal seasoning makes this dish outstanding: olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Can be served with an array of sides such as rice, roasted potatoes, or salad.
Along the way, visitors will find the Font de Canaletes, the renowned opera house Gran Teatre del Liceu and the famous Mercat de la Boquería San Josep (Saint Joseph’s marketplace). Street performers, florists, tourists and locals flock to Las Ramblas every day of the year, but know that the area gets especially packed during summer. And always keep an eye on your belongings.
