Food is such a huge part of traveling. A lot of the activities I did in the European countries I visited lately were tastings or local dinners, although most of them were alcohol rather than food! I tried a lot of good food in the last week and I thought I’d share some of that with you. Yes, a lot of the food I ate wasn’t necessarily local due to the main food containing meat, but I still feel like it was a good part of my experience.
So, I’ve always had this ideal world in my head that I’m going to go traveling and all of my problems are suddenly going to be fixed. I thought that I would feel better just for a change of scenery and I’ve learned the hard way that this isn’t the case. If I stop and think about how I’m feeling right now, I just start to cry again (which could partly be because I’m on my period). I am working my way through the packets of tissues I left at the bottom of my travel bag that I kept as an emergency toilet tissue stash while I was traveling around Thailand.

Here are four of the locations in Croatia that I had the best experiences of my recent holiday there. It’s a beautiful country and I hope I get to visit more of its cities and islands in the future. Any recommendations for places that I missed?
Our second day in Amsterdam was all about cheese. Well, it was for me anyway. Not exactly what I expected to find in the Red Light District, but that cheese tasting experience was amazing and I bought the nicest cheesiest sandwich of the trip there. Continue reading “Cheese, cheese and more cheese”
Travelling to Amsterdam introduced me to a lot of things. It was my first time visiting this new country, I tried some great foods and it was my first experience staying in a shared house rather than a hotel or entire home on airbnb.
