What Does Adventure Mean To You?

There are many things I consider to be an adventure when travelling .....

Meeting people from different countries and customs; seeing all the sights from the mountains, jungles, beaches and cities; but what adventure means to me is the culinary journey.

Every country has a culinary journey to take you on with foods to taste and drinks to enjoy, each telling a unique story with your taste buds.

Here are some of the tastes of adventure I've experienced on a plate and while these memories can't always be photographed they will always be remembered with a smile ...

1. Picking fresh figs off the trees at our holiday villa for breakfast in Ibiza

2. Asking a local for the recipe for Paella so I could make it at home on my return from Spain

3. Feasting on fritz (hot chips!) on the walk back to the hotel after a big night out in Amsterdam

4. The must try biggest and most succulent steaks barbecued on an open flame in Brazil

5. Drinking a pint of beer poured from ancient taps in an old English pub in London

6. Eating the best ice cream I've ever tasted while cruising down the river in beautiful Copenhagen

7. Trying the traditional snails escargot in a fancy restaurant in Paris

8. Starting dinner with a shot of Ouzo at a BBQ in Greece

9. Indulging in an abundance of varieties of fresh fruits from tropical island Indonesia

10. Drinking coconut milk straight from the coconut on a beach in New Caledonia

11. All the weird and wonderful foods seen on a walk through China Town in Vancouver

12. Wine tour and tastings at vineyards on beautiful Waiheke Island in New Zealand

13. Eating fresh seafood every night while on a road trip around coastal Tasmania

14. Buying home grown pineapples from the road side in Queensland

15. Barramundi burgers and beers while watching the sunset over Cable Beach in Broome

All of the above is the taste of adventure on a plate and in a glass for me!
