TRAVEL FOOD PHOTOS

I love to eat.  I love to travel.  I love to eat while traveling.  OK, lets face it, I want to eat my way around the world (sounds a little piggish…but don’t worry, I’ll work it off).  Is there any better way to experience a country’s culture and traditions than through their cuisine?  I think that besides music, food unites us all.  A good dish brings people together and creates a memorable experience.  I’ll never forget the delicious seafood and tempura I had in Japan or the Belize hot sauce on a Hawaiian pizza.  My mouth waters when I think about the fresh pasta in Italy or the goulash (and beer) I had in Prague.  So here are the best of my travels…and the reason why my belt is a wee bit tight around my tummy.
