For the next month, I am joining in the fun over at BootsnAll and writing for the 30 Days of Indie Travel? Each day, they give you a prompt that you can interpret however creatively or practically as you want.
#11: FEAST – For some of us, food isn’t just a part of our travels, it’s the reason why we travel. Whether you travel the globe to try new foods and use food to form a deeper connection with the culture or just eat to live, food plays a big part in the travel experience. Share a food-related story from your travels or describe your best meal.
We spent last Thanksgiving in New Orleans specifically because we don’t eat enough seafood in Wyoming. There can never be enough seafood in our lives in the mountains, and there is no such thing as “too many oysters.” We dragged my family (countering our Wyoming with a little Ohio and Vermont) down to Louisiana for our annual get together and based the entire vacation around food and drink. We hit up the local breweries, the best places to get Pimm’s cups, every place that reported to have the best and/or cheapest oysters in town; we peeled crawfish until our fingers reeked of the Mississippi and we drank enough hurricanes to humble Katrina.
And we heard amazing jazz…
…and saw some amazing architecture…
…and experienced the passion of the city, all because we are dedicated foodies.
