Survival instincts

When we travel, we must do some things, no matter where we are. Such as sleep, use the toilet and . . . eat. No matter where we are, we usually carry a particular kinship with the foods that we grew up with. And, often when you travel, you’ll be faced with a cuisine that is so totally foreign (no pun intended) to you that you may decide to sit out the meal and just drink a bottle of Coke. (But don’t do that! Discovering new foods is also one of life’s biggest thrills, as well.)

So, if you’re the cautious / nervous type when it comes to eating, you may approach your first meal in a completely new country with some trepidation. Fair enough, but, as you travel, you’ll also know that finding familiar foods is actually not that difficult: global brands prevail, and the people want what the people get. You’ll inevitably find your “comfort zone” eateries. But, push forward and try something new, maybe from a small café just around the corner from your hotel.

If this isn’t reassuring enough for you, behold the Tour Around The World With 40 Food Maps, courtesy of Click here.
