Expand My Palate

June 29, 2016

The breaking of bread brings people together all over the world. ? Through the ritual of eating together in a new place, you gain insight into the local people, their history and their culture. Not just eating, but eating *together* is one of the best ways to discover a new country. But even after #traveling to more than 30 countries, my heart remains in one place—my mother’s house. ? For me, food is a #ReasonToTravel, but it’s also a reason to come home (especially at Thanksgiving! ?). It’s easy to keep an eye on the horizon ahead, but it’s just as important to look back once in a while and remember. Thanks so much for letting me show you a bit of my world today. Keep eating, keep traveling, and keep expanding your palate! @travelfreak_ signing out ??
