Traveling by car is one of the most enjoyable parts of our travel, and personally, I feel very relaxed when driving a hired car in most places around the world. I have driven in both North America and Europe (as well as motorbikes in Asia) and it’s been an awesome experience every single time.
The personal finance and investing scene in Europe has been growing madly these past couple of years, and the proliferation of new platforms such as P2P Lending and Property Crowdfunding ones have seen the barriers lowered and more people taking an interest in their own finances.
To keep on top of all the news in the space, I’ve used the WP RSS Aggregator WordPress plugin to build a European finance blogger aggregation site, which I am launching today.
Have a look if you’re interested in learing how you can make your money go further, and as always, if you have any feedback, just leave a comment below. Enjoy!
There are many misconceptions around Cholesterol that I want to tackle in this post. I have inherited high cholesterol levels and so I have a personal interest in the subject.
Typically doctors tell me that I need to eat healthy; as if I don’t already do so as an athlete. I understand that many people have unhealthy diets that worsen pre-existing conditions or even lead to specific conditions, but when you have a healthy athlete in front of you, dishing out generic advise like that is a bit nonsensical.
What is Cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that humans need to survive. Your body makes cholesterol and absorbs it from the foods you eat.
When people talk about cholesterol in relation to heart health, they usually aren’t talking about cholesterol itself.
They are actually referring to the structures that carry cholesterol in the bloodstream. These are called lipoproteins.
Lipoproteins are made of fat (lipid) on the inside and protein on the outside.
There are several kinds of lipoproteins, but the two most relevant to heart health are low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL).

The best calçots are found in Valls, where they make a popular fiesta every year in honour of this delicacy.
If you want to try them out in places closer to Barcelona, you will have to be careful when choosing, as there are many places that are rip-offs with low quality products.
Here are the places I recommend based on my own experience or that of trusted local friends.
- Sa Montoliva (also have a daily menu del dia for 12 euro with local food) – Tarragona
- Can Cortada – Barcelona
- Can Jane – Sant Cugat
Do you know any other awesome places for eating calçots?
