The Best, and Most Scoffable Sweet Treats from Around the World

It’s time to talk about one of my favourite things, food. More specifically, one of my favourite types of food – calorific, delicious, sickly sweet stuff.

To give you a bit of an introduction to some of the yummiest, here is a count down of our choice of the best, and most scoffable sweet treats from around the world.

High Five…Sailing Adventures!

You’ll be hard pressed to find an experience that comprises a mixture of adventure, relaxation, discovery and good old fashioned fun better than a sailing trip.
