How you travel is personal. Some people will head out on their annual vacation and stick to familiar things. Others will do things differently every time to get a variety of experiences. There is no right or wrong way to travel. We all have our own travel goals. Sometimes it’s to relax. Sometimes it’s to explore. And there are some that want to eat their way around the world! There are many interesting and incredible cuisines around the world. Wanting to taste them all is only natural. Consider taking a foodie trip when you next travel.
Make It A Foodie Destination
Although every country has its own cuisine, it’s safe to say that not all of them will appeal to you. So you may want to find the best foodie locations around the world and plan a trip to one of those. Whether it’s New York or Rome, be sure that you’re heading somewhere that will have many delicious food options to choose from.
Check Restaurant Recommendations Before You Go
Before you head to a foodie destination to enjoy some great food do your research to get the most out of your culinary adventure. There are many online sites to help you identify the best “must visit” restaurants. These web sites will also give you some ideas on what to order. Be sure to take some notes to bring with you.
Seek Out Street Food
Don’t just limit yourself to the fancy restaurants or cute little eateries. There’s some really amazing food out on the streets. Head to social media and see what food trucks are causing a stir. In many countries from Colombia to Thailand you’ll find food stalls on the side of the road. This is where many locals get their daily meals. You would be surprised at how good and how inexpensive they are. Check out this fun video tour of food stands in Bangkok Thailand.
Find Fun Experiences
There other ways to broaden your your foodie experience. Take a cooking class, or go on a wine tasting, like Star Lane tastings. Not only will you have a fun time but you will bring home knowledge and experience you can use over and over again. By planning a variety of foodie experiences you won’t feel like you’re doing the same things every day.
Make Time For A Tipple
Finally, don’t forget to sip up! You’ll often find some great cocktail bars in your foodie destinations. Be sure to include coffee shops and juice bars in your foodie experiences (You can also find these opportunities on the street). This is a great way to step back, take a break with a nice drink and get ready for your next foodie experience.
