Who doesn’t love exploring new cuisines on their travels? Amanda is always keen to set her taste buds loose on some new foods but as her guests and Amanda discuss in Episode 62 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast, it’s not just about the taste buds: foods in other countries can also teach us a lot.
In this episode Amanda starts by chatting with Alicia Nelson who learnt some foodie lessons on her travels in Spain and Japan. Following that, Zoë Dawes tells Amanda some interesting tales about foodie lessons she learnt in Hong Kong and beyond and they chat about how polite they should be when they’re offered new and unusual foods.
Finally, Amanda’s favourite foodie guest ever, Yasmin Newman, talks to her about her food sabbaticals, and particularly her most recent one in New York when she spent three months eating desserts pretty much non-stop. Interestingly, the biggest lesson to take away from this one is not only foodie-related but a bigger life lesson.
