4 Best Place to Travel If You Love Food

4 Best Place to Travel If You Love Food

If you have ever watched the Disney movie called “Shark Tale,” you may be familiar with a famous saying: “Fish are friends, not food.” However, for us, food and fish are our friends. We enjoy fine delicacies, weird fishes, funny vegetables, and new experiences. We embrace different cultures and understand them through their food.

Different countries possess a different charm with food, where they prefer showing their lifestyle off with food. There’s been a recent trend where social media is being spammed with food pictures from all around the world. It makes our stomachs rumble and our cravings grow.

To experience the best cuisine, you have to travel to a country that is known for its fabulous cooking. There are so many countries that have great food, so it can be overwhelming to choose which one to go to. Therefore, I’ve put together a list of countries that would be a feast for your eyes, mind, and stomach.

1. Bangladesh, the Land Where Street Food in Winter Tastes Divine

    It’s uncommon for one to name Bangladesh as a land that’s surrounded with amazing food. However, when I went there for the first time, it definitely struck me as a land filled with mystery and love. Its busy streets, rocky buses, and amazing fresh markets give the whole environment a fantastic ambiance.

    One might think summer is the best time to visit Bangladesh, but it’s actually winter that shows the country’s beautiful secrets. Bangladesh is the one land that possess the most delicious street foods and a country that enjoys great yogurt and delicious “Chai.”

    My personal favorite would be “Fuschka.” It’s a plate of fried pasties filled with green chilies and onions that is dipped into a hot bowl of spicy tamarind sauce. This dish warms you up immediately and leaves you craving more. The best thing to accompany this plate would be a delicious cup of “chai.”

    However, if you’re not one to enjoy spices then “Bhapa Pittas” would be the next best alternative. A sweet pastry that’s steamed and eaten hot accompanied with brown sugar and coconuts shreds would be the perfect winter food. It tastes exactly like sponge cake, only lighter and more aromatic. The best place to purchase it would in the street carts or to ask a Bengali cook to make it for you.

    There are many delicious cuisines for foodies who are willing to explore beautiful country of Bangladesh. If you’re there take a trip to Cox Bazaar, one of the longest beaches in the world, you definitely won’t regret it.

      Japan, as we all know, is filled with classical and traditional values. They practice specific manners and respect every tradition that has helped form their lives. There’s a method to sit, eat, drink, walk and talk, hence this rules applies into enjoying every delicacy too.

      Japan is famous for one particular thing in the food world, and that is Sushi. A land surrounded by the ocean has made them one of the largest producers of fresh fish and unique sushi cuisines. Sushi is a delicacy that is loved by people all around the world. It’s a spread of fresh fish, thinly sliced on a bed of rice and dipped in a spicy blend of herbs.

      Anyone who loves food knows what good fish tastes like, and to taste the best fish, one must definitely visit Japan. Eat it with your fingers, three fingers in particular, and always dip the fish facing down. Plus, never over-indulge in soy sauce, and always clean your plate. Show your respect to the food, and you’ll be able to indulge in the best options available.

      Finally, the best sushi restaurant is below the Tokyo Subway Station, and if you’re there definitely ask for Chef Jiro to make you a feast.

      3. Italy, Where Wine and Food Meet in Between

        All around the world, Italy has been famous for its delicious wine, amazing cheese, and its subtle flavors. People love Italy for its beautiful language, and their ability to turn any cuisine from rags to riches. It’s famous for splurging its food with delicious cheese and pairing any food with the right wine. It’s known for its coffee, pastry, pizzas, and pastas.

        They say when in Italy, never look toward any fast food, and this is definitely true. The one food you should not miss is the delicious margarita pizza. Sometimes the simplest food tastes the best; in this case, it’s true. You’ll be able to taste the mellow tomato sauce and enjoy that beautiful coat of cheese. Take a moment, and pair it with a beautiful glass of wine.

        However, if you’re looking for something classy, then always go for the seafood risotto. The best part of Italy for you to be able to enjoy a nice plate of risotto for a reasonable price would be Sardinia. You’ll be able to enjoy the freshest sea jewels along with a beautiful view.

        Personally, I can say if you’re in Europe, make sure to head to Italy.

        4. Philippines, a Land of Uniqueness

          The Philippines is one of the Asian countries that combines both Asian and European cultures together. The Philippines used to be colonized by the Portuguese, hence they’ve adapted their culture and their food with a combination of Filipino and Portuguese influence. They are a country filled with beautiful people, amazing language, and delicious food, with the willingness to share with other nations.

          One of the most famous cuisines is the Balut. Balut is an unhatched bird fetus which is steamed and eaten with soy sauce. It’s a common delicacy, and for many Filipinos, it’s their breakfast. Its nutrients and protein give you the energy to proceed with your day. While some may find it disgusting, others find it amazing in flavor.

          If you’re in the Philippines, then never be intimidated by their delicious yet unique cuisine.

          In conclusion, the world is filled with wondrous food and various cultures. If you’re up for an adventure, then food is the first place to start. Surprisingly, while sharing food, the whole world’s able to make peace with one another.

          So why not give food a chance?

          8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

          8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

          Minimalism is a way to put a stop to the gluttony of the world around us. It’s the opposite of every advertisement we see plastered on the radio and TV. We live in a society that prides itself on the accumulation of stuff; we eat up consumerism, material possessions, clutter, debt, distractions and noise.

          What we don’t seem to have is any meaning left in our world.

          By adopting a minimalist lifestyle, you can throw out what you don’t need in order to focus on what you do need.

          I know first hand how little we actually need to survive. I was fortunate enough to live in a van for four months while traveling throughout Australia. This experience taught me valuable lessons about what really matters and how little we really need all this stuff we surround ourselves with.

          Less is more.

          Living a minimalist lifestyle is reducing.There are a few obvious benefits of minimalism such as less cleaning and stress, a more organized household and more money to be found, but there are also a few deep, life-changing benefits.

          What we don’t usually realize is that when we reduce, we reduce a lot more than just stuff.

          Consider just some of the benefits of living with fewer possessions:

          1. Create Room for What’s Important

          When we purge our junk drawers and closets we create space and peace. We lose that claustrophobic feeling and we can actually breathe again. Create the room to fill up our lives with meaning instead of stuff.

          2. More Freedom

          The accumulation of stuff is like an anchor, it ties us down. We are always terrified of losing all our ‘stuff’. Let it go and you will experience a freedom like never before: a freedom from greed, debt, obsession and overworking.

          3. Focus on Health and Hobbies

          When you spend less time at Home Depot trying unsuccessfully to keep up with the Joneses, you create an opening to do the things you love, things that you never seem to have time for.

          Everyone is always saying they don’t have enough time, but how many people really stop and look at what they are spending their time doing?

          You could be enjoying a day with your kids, hitting up the gym, practicing yoga, reading a good book or traveling. Whatever it is that you love you could be doing, but instead you are stuck at Sears shopping for more stuff.

          4. Less Focus on Material Possessions

          All the stuff we surround ourselves with is merely a distraction, we are filling a void. Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy comfort. After the initial comfort is satisfied, that’s where our obsession with money should end.

          We are bombarded by the media presenting promises of happiness through materialistic measures. It’s no wonder we struggle everyday. Resist those urges. It’s an empty path, it won’t make you happy.

          Advertising

          It’s hard not to get roped into the consumerism trap. I need constant reminders that it’s a false sense of happiness. I enjoy stuff, but I also recognize that I don’t need it.

          5. More Peace of Mind

          When we cling onto material possessions we create stress because we are always afraid of losing these things. By simplifying your life you can lose your attachment to these things and ultimately create a calm, peaceful mind.

          The less things you have to worry about, the more peace you have, and it’s as simple as that.

          6. More Happiness

          When de-cluttering your life, happiness naturally comes because you gravitate towards the things that matter most. You see clearly the false promises in all the clutter, it’s like a broken shield against life’s true essence.

          You will also find happiness in being more efficient, you will find concentration by having refocused your priorities, you will find joy by enjoying slowing down.

          7. Less Fear of Failure

          When you look at Buddhist monks, they have no fear, and they have no fear because they don’t have anything to lose.

          In whatever you wish to pursue doing you can excel, if you aren’t plagued with the fear of losing all your worldly possessions. Obviously you need to take the appropriate steps to put a roof over your head, but also know that you have little to fear except fear itself.

          8. More Confidence

          The entire minimalist lifestyle promotes individuality and self reliance. This will make you more confident in your pursuit of happiness.

          What’s Next? Go Minimalism.
