The Purpose behind Travel Blogs & More The purpose of my website is to raise awareness of the different ways you can enjoy travel experiences. We will accomplish this by publishing travel experiences from travelers across the world on multiple travel topics/destinations. There will be a minimum of 6 Travel experience interviews a month posted on our official website at www.travelblogsandmore.com. Travel experience interviews are done based on specific Travel topics, to help travelers better understand that particular way of travel through another traveler's personal travel experience. If you are a Travel Blogger and you volunteer to be interviewed we will also happily post the link to your Blog Site with your interview for viewers to visit your Blog Site at. To be interviewed for one of the main Travel topics you must submit a brief description of your Travel experience to our Official website at www.travelblogsandmore.com . On behalf of Traveling Charms Travel Group If your interview is posted you will be sent Destination Charm and Charm Bracelet in representation of your Travel Experience on as a token of appreciation for your voluntary participation to our website. We look forward to reading some beautiful Travel Experience stories and possibly seeing you at our upcoming events. Please: Share, Like, Subscribe and spread the Travel Bug!!!!!
Food for a fact is a necessity life cannot exist without. For many people food is the way to one’s heart through their tummy desires. Food comes in many flavors from Asian, Mexican, Italian, African, Cuban, American and the list can go on. Their are so many varieties of foods in this world that most people wouldn’t know where to start. Many people get caught up with deciding what they want at a fast food drive thru, imagine what it would be like to travel the world and try different foods while doing so. You’d probably need a little guidance on which country to start your food journey at. to help guide your curious tummies in the right direction once a month we choose Travel Foodies to answer a few questions and give us recommendations about food and travelling based on their personal Travel Foodie experience.
Meet Janja and Matevz. This lovely couple are food connoisseurs. Aside from the passion they share with one another, they also have a very delectable passion for food and traveling the world. During this blog interview they will be taking us on a journey to fill our tummy desires and that is the journey of food all around the world! They will be giving us a few insights on their personal experiences as Travel Foodies!!!
● Who are you?
“We are a couple from Slovenia on a mission to try the food from all over the world.”
● When you think of the word travel, where does your imagination take you?
“Into far and exotic places. One of our big wishes is Mongolia and its vast steppe and the other is going on a safari in Africa.”
● Are you a Full Time Traveler, if so at when did you decide to travel full time and why?
“We are not a full time travelers, we both have jobs, but we go travelling 3-4 times a year.”
● As a Foodie traveler how do you select your travel destinations when you travel?
“We think that each country has some special food to offer and all should be tried.”
● How many destination would you say on average you travel to a year and what is the most destinations you’ve traveled in one year?
“We go to at least four destinations a year, as in one trip we usually visit more countries. The most in one year was Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Sicily, East Coast USA, Vienna, Belgrade.”
● What was the strangest food you’ve ever ate while traveling, what made it strange and would you eat it again if you could?
“One of the strangest foods was hot sauce in Venezuela in which there were ants and they were huge! Similarly strange was scorpion in China – it was fried on a stick. We are not accustomed to eating insects and it is still weird. We wouldn’t try it again, once was enough 🙂 Other weird things were camel meat in Morocco, alligator in Cambodia, eel fish and goldfish in Indonesia. In Venezuela we went piranha-fishing and then fried and ate them – they were really greasy.”
● As a Foodie traveler where was your most favored travel destination?
“We’d say that Malaysia was one of the best.”
● What made that destination your favorite, and what type of foods did that destination have to offer?
“The food in Malaysia is a mixture of Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Indian and it is never boring. Food is fresh made with lots of vegetables and seafood. We love stir frys and in Malaysia they are available everywhere. For breakfast, we really love Chinese steamed dumplings. We also love soups – chicken, vegetable, beef…
We are not a big fans of rice and in Malaysia noodles are very popular. We also like that you can eat any time of the day. For example, when we were in Georgetown in Penang, we had breakfast, about three lunches and three dinners in one day. 🙂 Our favorite dish in Malaysia is char koey toew.”
● What is one thing you’ll always remember about that vacation?
“People and food, we think that those are the two things that make the atmosphere. You forget the bad weather, you smile on thought of bad accommodation, but you never forget the taste of food and behavior of the people, let them be good or bad. :)”
● If you could go back to that destination would you? If so Why or why not?
“Sure, we would go back and we already were there several times. When going to South-East Asia we usually start or end our trip in Malaysia where Jalan Alor is still one of our favorite eating streets in the world.”
● What would you say is the best part about being a Foodie Traveler?
“The best part is trying new food and then trying to replicate the same dishes at home. When flying back home we always have our bags full of local spices, sauces and sweets. At home, the ingredients are not so fresh as in Asia but it still gives us a feeling if being on the other side of the world.”
● Do you prefer to travel Solo, with friends or Significant other and why?
“We love travelling together just the two of us. When there are more people it is always necessary to compromise, there is always one person that is late. In the last years we have adapted our travelling rhythm to one another. Also, when being on the road you get a chance to really get to know the person you are travelling with.”
● Do you find that there are many other people like yourself who are more willing to try exotic foods while traveling, why or why not?
“The world is huge and travelling has gotten easier than ever. When reading travel blogs of other people we see that many love food just the way we do. From those travel blogs we get ideas and inspiration for future trips.”
● What are some of your Pros and Cons about being a Foodie Traveler?
“It’s simple, pros are good food and cons are bad food. You can find both wherever you go. When you just have to try everything you see, you really have to be careful about the cleanliness of the place. We once got a severe food poisoning in Indonesia and could not get up for a few days and could only eat white plain rice for a week.”
● What would you recommend to other people who are interested in traveling the world to try different foods?
“Research what are the must try foods and make a list. This way you won’t miss something that is more bizzare :)”
● Is there anything else you would like to add about Food and Traveling?
“If you have chance to go somewhere and try new foods – just go 🙂 Just be careful not to get addicted by it :D”
