Globe Trotters

Travel and adventure go hand in hand. People with the means to seek out exotic faraway lands often find that discovering a previously unknown dish is one of the biggest pleasures. There is nothing better than finding exquisite food in a place that seems far removed from the beaten path and sampling new flavors and spices for the first time.
Serious globetrotters who become real food aficionados have the whole world to explore. Morocco is one destination sure to please food lovers and it is full of exotic destinations like Casablanca and Fez, and the Atlas Mountains. The couscous dishes have to be tried to be believed. The country has a timeless quality, with open air markets and wandering nomadic tribes.

Italy, too, has charms for food lovers, with many regional varieties of cuisine. You can check out the subtle differences in pizza, for example, as you travel around the country, as well as homemade pasta and different types of pesto sauce. All around the country food aficionados can find a great selection of fine olive oils and wines unique to each region.
The Greek Isles are romantic, but people also travel to Greece just for its legendary cuisine. Don't miss the gyros and the souvlaki!
Asia is a great destination for food aficionados. India, Thailand and Vietnam are known for their spicy curry dishes. China is famous for its spicy Szechuan cuisine and Japan for sushi. Intrepid explorers can try traveling the whole continent, sampling a myriad of cultures along the way.
Many people dream of such a life and wish they could travel everywhere and try out each culture's cuisine. Some people actually do live this way and then they bring the knowledge and experience home with them. They collect recipes from faraway lands and start cooking exotic cuisine in their hometowns. It is an enviable lifestyle, for sure, but how does a person manage to afford it? To find out, it makes sense to frequent the blogs of travelers, travel writers and the authors of cookbooks. The website of Chantal Royer, for example, looks like a good place to start.

I'm not a food aficionado, but there are a few places on my bucket list that I want to visit just for the food. Italy is at the top of that list!

I did not know that, you are a globetrotting family. It is good to educate children to different cultures. The best way to do it - live in it. Nice.

Janeane Davis said...

I enjoy traveling with my family. One of our favorite things is o eat the food that is customarily eaten in a place. It helps you learn more about the place and the people to eat the food and participate in the culture.

My husband and I share the same passion, which is to travel and explore new places. We always talk about visiting Europe though like Italy and New Zealand. Traveling for us is fun and we may not get rich by traveling a lot, but you see so much of the world that way. You experience new things and sample new food. :) I would love to visit other parts of Asia too someday. Lovely photos! I am kind of interested in visiting SKorea, but I know my husband wouldn't be as much thrilled though. LOL!

Adin B said...

I love how you guys traveled to so many places already with your kids. Love the photos!
