After spending five days in Umbria for the TBU Travel Blogger Unite conference, I realized that there is one common denominator amongst travelers:
We LOVE food.
In fact, many travelers Tony and I met consider their food experiences to be the highlight of their travels and are often more inclined to spend 20 Euros on an Italian meal than 20 Euros in an Italian museum or on a tour bus.
After we discovered that we are not the only fat kids on the road, we decided to open up our weekly “Hostel Cooking 101” Series to be more of a portal for people to share their global culinary stories.
Just like the Food Network TV show, The Best Thing I Ever Ate, we will be titling this series “Foodgasmic Tales From The Road.”
Here’s how it will all shake down folks:
- Tony and I will have a weekly article on the best thing we ate during that week… And ANYTHING is game – whether it was a delicious meal we whipped up in our hostel (in that case, a recipe will be included), orgasmic street food in Asia, a piece of fruit from a local market, or a mouth watering dinner out… All is fair in love and food!
- In addition to our weekly posts, we will also be reaching out to other travelers for occasional guest posts on their most cherished meals on the road. If there is one thing we have learned this week in Umbria, it is that travelers love to talk about their food!
This week is just an introduction to our new series, but get ready for some serious food porn and drool-inducing tales next week.
And if you are a traveler, please let us know if you would like to share you foodie story with our readers.
In the meantime….
What is the best meal YOU ever ate?
