Haha! This is amazing! I completely relate. When my husband and I travel, we plan our days around what and where we want to eat :)

Love it, Andrea!

It got to the point where we looked at our photos of famous cities and only saw plates of food… We totally missed pictures of some of the most famous stuff!

So glad you can relate! There are so many of us food obsessed travelers that i’m hoping our newsletter will provide real value. Happy eating!

The Departed GIF kills me.

But yes, I’ll take every baked good on offer in whatever place I’m in, please.

The departed gif is one of my favorites too, Erin! Mostly because I actually once found bacon that was so tasty at a cafe in San Francisco that when I dropped it on the street… I picked it up and ate it.

A woman walking by just looked at me and said: “I would have done the same damn thing.” :)

That’s seriously one of the BEST collection one of gifs I’ve EVER SEEN!! I’m so happy right now.

High praise, Allie!

I’m looking to do a second post… so i’m looking for some great suggestions. I’m pretty sure you and Jim must have a food obsessed trait or three:)

hahhaah love and relate to EVERY single one of these. But there is a soft spot in my heart for number 5 :)

Tony August 27, 2013 at 6:39 pm

Yeah… I hear that one a lot too. Who doesn’t think food is the best part of any place you visit!?!?!?!

Anne August 30, 2013 at 12:13 pm

I am OBSESSED with this! Somebody out there gets me!

Reply

Tony August 30, 2013 at 1:58 pm

Thanks, Anne! We do get you!!!

Us food-obsessives have to stick together… plus, you always get the best tips on restaurants and meals from other people like ourselves. Am I right?

Anne September 3, 2013 at 3:15 pm

Right you are, Tony! Can’t tell you how many of my best food recommendations while traveling came from other travelers on Twitter!

I LOVED THIS POST AND WILL BE WAITING FOR MY FIRST BELLYHUSTLE NEWSLETTER. Fantastic idea and we really do love food and travel. What a combination.

You know you’re obsessed with food when you write in all caps about it :)

It’s the only reason to travel most times, right? Thanks for signing up!

Laura September 4, 2013 at 12:32 am

This is hilarious!! I love it, I couldn’t stop laughing! Thanks for sharing!

Tony September 4, 2013 at 7:11 pm

So glad you loved it, Laura! Thanks for signing up for the newsletter. I’ll be looking for input on how to improve it, so don’t be shy about what you’re looking for and how it can be improved.

PS… I can’t believe this is going to be the first year you haven’t visited another country since 2007! That’s a great streak, especially since Australia is a bit far from most places.

Where do you think those itchy feet will take you next?

Pamela September 19, 2013 at 11:41 am

And you just need to take a photo of the food before anyone can start eating. :)

Reply

Tony September 19, 2013 at 5:38 pm

That is a given, Pamela!

My favorite are when a bunch of travel bloggers/food lovers get together and you get a picture of the group taking pictures of their food. There is almost one person ready to eat who does NOT look happy :)
