Will Travel For Food

Lingo

I recently blogged about culinary tours (from wine-tasting to beer-tasting to gelato tours in Italy and other culinary delights). And after a recent two-week boat trip where one of the biggest daily agenda items was, "What shall we eat next?" it got me thinking. How many people travel for food?

Culinary tours and cooking classes seem to be sprouting up everywhere. When I travel, food is one of the first things that comes to mind. While boating recently, my skipper and chef caught nine Dungeness crabs for us to feast on. We got creative with fresh crab dipped in butter, crab cakes, melts, salads. You name the recipe, that crustacean was on the menu.

When traveling to a new place, I always ask friends who have been there: "Where's the good food?" Since we all need food for sustenance, mealtimes seem to bind us together when traveling. It becomes an activity all its own. One of the great pleasures of the trip.

One of my favorite meals of all time was an insalata caprese in Piazza Navona in Rome. I was with my dad. At the time, I'd never had more flavorful tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. The food simply tasted better in Italy. The sweet memory of the meal probably had more to do with the company, the intoxicating energy in the piazza, and its historical buildings surrounding us than the ingredients. But who can tell? No matter. The memory is still etched in my brain.

Do you travel for food?




About the Author - Jocelyn Milici

Jocelyn blogs about group travel on TripHub's Group Trip Advisor.
Travel has been in my life since I was old enough to book my own ticket (and, of course, on family reunions and trips). My first trip abroad (other than to Canada) was across the border to Tijuana, Mexico on spring break my senior year of college. Does that count? Probably not.

Real travel began for me when I journeyed alone to South and Centra America, deciding never again to travel solo - it was lonely, isolating, not nearly as much fun as being with travel companions, friends, or family.

After 8+ years in the online travel industry, I'm blogging about group travel with tips, advice, resources, ponderings, and more for family travel, girls getaways, weddings - all types of group travel. The blog is connected to TripHub, a group travel planning site with free tools for organizing small to medium-sized group trips.

Have a look! Happy travels,
Jocelyn

    Hello and thanks for the opportunity to read and post on your blog.

    I’ve just posted an article related to travel tips for seniors on my blog and I thought maybe you’d be interested in reading it. Here is short preview of some of the areas I covered:

    - Prefer a backpack on wheels instead of a suitcase, you could pull it behind you when your back hurts or you are exhausted.
    - Consider checking your bag in with the airlines, because it would become an unnecessary burden to be dragged all over the airport or the city if you are going to have a short visit.
    - You could stay outside the city, in a hostel maybe, because it is cheaper, less crowded and the air is much fresher, but you have to walk or use the transport more, to get in the city or to the station.
    - Most museums, some concert halls, railways, airlines, bus lines, ferry and shipping lines have a discount policy for seniors.
    - Electronic devices are useful but sometimes they can give you a lot of headaches. You could help yourself with a micro-tape recorder to record your notes. It would be easier than to write and you would put them down on paper later, to share your notes with your family.
    - If you bring a camera with you to keep the beautiful images alive along the time then make sure you know how to handle it or you might fail to record them not only on that camera but also in your eyes.

    For more resources on travelling to Europe you are welcome to visit my blog, where you can also get acces to some excellent maps of Rome and maps of Berlin, together with information on hotels and restaurants.

    Best regards,

    Michael R.
