There’s no doubt in the travel blogger sphere Gary takes the cake for being the ultimate foodie. I mean, he flew to Spain just for dinner, so I think that says it all.
My food vocabulary is limited to “amazing,” “meh,” and “bleh,” and that’s why I keep my descriptions of food short. Could the risotto have used used a pinch more olive oil or is there too much pea-ness going on in a dish (video below)? Meh, I dunno. And that’s probably because for me, microwaving a Lean Cuisine is a culinary feat.
But I can appreciate a good steak or piece of fish, it’s just the 23 course, “deconstructed” meals that are lost on me.
Still, I’ve been inspired by Gary. And tomorrow I’m embarking on an epicurean journey of my own. Much like Gary I’ll hop on a plane with the (near) sole purpose of dining at a restaurant, and I’m damn excited! Now, I’m not sure everyone will agree this is a “destination” restaurant, but that won’t stop me from sharing my experiences…
From there I’ll be taking a longhaul flight that I believe will complete one of my “top five” lists. I often write about what I consider to be the top five products, be it first class hard products, lounges, etc.
What’s the next top five list, you ask? How about top five airplane bathrooms? I think I’ll finally experience the airplane bathroom that will let me round off the list.
I need to start drinking. Or find a new hobby. Or something.
