For the month of March, we're starting a new series every Monday titled "In the Mood for.." featuring a different theme each week and highlighting the topic with some of our fav blog posts.
This week, we'll be featuring one of our favorite reasons for traveling: the food! Traveling to new destinations and sampling the local cuisine is one of best parts of your travel story.
As Virginia Woolf would say, "One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well" and we wholeheartedly agree! Some of our favorite travel stories revolve around food. What are you in the mood for? Will it be Ferg Burgers in New Zealand, escargot in Paris, the guinea pig "cuy" in Peru, or the alligator in New Orleans? We'll let you decide by checking out some of our tastiest blog posts around!
