Exploring A Culture Through Its Food
I travel on my stomach, and as a result, has eaten a lot of food all around the world. I think everything tastes different when you travel. Who knew that strawberries tastes the best in Scandinavia? Same thing with watermelon in Bali – the fresh watermelon juice is just amazing. And white asparagus in Germany, Kyoho grapes in Japan, tomatoes in Italy, and so on. I’m not sure why but fruits and vegetables taste different around the world!
Discover where the locals go to eat for a more authentic experience. Finding authentic foods does not always translate into finding Michelin-Starred restaurants. I enjoy fine dining but some of my best travel memories come from trying local comfort foods. I enjoy strolling down the beautiful streets in the morning, getting Churros con choclate for breakfast in Spain. Walking in the vibrant night markets at 11 pm eating Gua Bao pork bun with bubble milk tea in Taiwan. Having Oden from yatai (carts and stalls) on a cold winter’s night in Japan.
Love Traveling & Exploring New Cultures
Travel helps open your mind. There is no one way to live life. You can’t imagine how different life is in another place until you see for yourself. When you travel to another part of the world, remember to keep an open and respectful mind. The way things work in other countries is not the way things work back at home. Every part of the world is different. When you travel, you will have the opportunity to see or do things that you can’t do in your home country. Imagine how exciting it would be to cruise through beautiful Halong Bay in Vietnam, climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia, walk through the powerful Forbidden City in China or explore the ancient city walls Dubrovnik in Croatia. It adds valuable life experience that you will remember in old age.
