TRAVELLING FOOD (ADDED 20.06.10)
To me; a huge part of my travelling experience is food. The knowledge that I will be experiencing different flavours, trying to new things, and tasting food I have never tasted before excites me immensely.
Even in New York, where I currently am visiting, a place where the cuisine is not that dissimilar to home, when I think about how large this city is and just how many restaurants, bars and cafes there are, if I could dedicate my money and my time to visiting every single one of them – I would.
Eating is an experience, a moment to enjoy and savour. I eat for pleasure not just out of necessity. I appear to have attracted a circle of like-minded friends, as they only travel tips given to me by people before I left was what to eat and where.
My first comments when asked about a country I have visited always involve which food I loved the best.
Is it worrying that one of the things I want to do most whilst away is to dedicate an entire day in New York eating and drinking my way around it?
I think my gym membership will be in full use when I return.
