Food Travels


At the heart of my drive to travel is food. Of course I also want to immerse myself in the history, get to know the people, customs & culture of a nation I’m visiting; but food spans all these things. It ties together people who would otherwise be foreign, cultures that would otherwise shock and customs that would otherwise be mysteries. So these posts in a way are part of my travel diaries, food travels, that represent a small part of the whole. And I hope in reading them, you find the inspiration to engage in your own food travels.
