|Ron really knows Europe! He was born and raised in Holland, having spent most of his life in the Netherlands, Germany and France. By the time he was 21 he'd explored a good portion of Europe and was fluent in Dutch, German, French and English. Since then he's learned Spanish and Italian. Without a language barrier, Ron has access to people, places and a true insider's perspective which he shares with every guest. He's always been fascinated with European history and her various cultures - each intertwined and yet different in so many ways. After graduating from college in the States, he spent 7 months biking through Southern and Eastern Europe. It was then that he realized there's no better way to explore Europe than along her back roads on the seat of a bike. Ron got into the biking/travel business in 1983, and is proud to say he hasn't stopped pedaling since! View Ron’s guide profile here >>|

|Local Bites: Local Bites: Bouillabaisse |
Trip: France - Taste of Provence Biking Adventure
The food of Provence, France, once considered the working man's cuisine, has become known and admired world-wide for its heartiness and use of fresh, local ingredients. Bouillabaisse, which originated in Marseille, has withstood the test of time: some believe the recipe's origins can be traced back to 600 BC! Always a seafood recipe, traditional Bouillabaisse was refined as recently as the 19th century to contain the ingredients we are familiar with today like tomatoes and saffron.
