“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you.” ― Anthony Bourdain
One of the best ways to experience the world is with the palette. Gastronomy—from food to mixology—has become a popular reason to travel. Whether finding the best street food to stalls in the market—from local joints to five-star cuisine, the desire to find the most interesting meals on the planet has become an obsession for many. As the world has become more diffuse, some of best restaurants are drawing travelers to small towns not known for food. In many places, wineries, craft breweries and distilleries are providing yet another excuse to indulge in travel.
