Food and Travel—Two of My Favorite Things

There’s nothing like traveling to open up your eyes to all the amazing food possibilities out there.  Trying new foods from other cultures is one of my favorite parts about visiting a new place (thankfully, all that walking keeps me from coming home 20 pounds heavier…).  I also often get ideas for new recipes to try and new flavor combinations to experiment with.  Plus, pastries.  Every country has them.  Below are some of my favorite food-related travels.
