Greetings to you all from Donostia-San Sebastián in the Basque Country. I'm heading to the beach. Meanwhile, here's a guest post from my brother Joel.
One minute you've just started dating - the next minute you've been together for ever. It only seems like yesterday that Aliyyah and I started a lifelong partnership, but in reality it was a full six years ago. Doesn't time fly when you're enjoying yourself!
You guys in the smoke may have your Borough Market, but we have decent food out here in the sticks as well. Viviers (French for fish ponds) is the company that runs Portsmouth's main wholesale and retail fish market, located on the historic Camber Quay in the old town. The largest shellfish merchant on the south coast, Viviers owns its own fleet of fishing vessels.
OK - so maybe my photography isn't brilliant and my plates aren't quite as artistic as the ones that little brother lays out - but I was feeding the stomach as well as the soul. And it went down very well.
