Food and Beverages

I think that food and beverages are at the heart of every culture. So, when I plan a trip, I spend a lot of time (probably too much time) time figure out what to eat. And, to add another challenge, we also like to stick to a budget. Here, you can find what we ate during our trips, and you can be sure they won’t break the bank. I have to confess though, we do occasionally splurge!

And, to do that, I need to take good pictures. I’m not a professional by any means, so I often bring in the experts for this travel resource section.
