Every now and again I stumble across a book that makes me roar with laughter straight away. Tapas and Tinto is one example. This book caught my eye because the author, Pete Wolstencroft, attended the University of Portsmouth. Links to purchase the book follow the review. Enjoy!
Within the first page I had established that Pete likes his wine, loves his food, and isn’t scared to throw himself headfirst into new situations. His descriptions of his bosses at the shoe company he worked at before heading off to Spain, had me laughing out loud.
It’s no secret that I too enjoy food and wine, and like Pete I will seek out the more rustic establishments in which to spend my hardearned euros.
Pete takes you on a journey around Gibraltar and Spain – but don’t expect a tourist guide. This book is much more about relationships with the people he meets along the way, food and drink of course, and his extremely honest appraisal of his own actions.
I really enjoyed Pete’s approach to life in this book. He’s not scared to voice his views… or to admit when he got things wrong. I especially liked his colourful language to describe certain people or situations.
