Estonia

Estonia is one of those countries where we found it very hard to eat local food. In Pärnu, our second stop in the country, we went to the tourist information to find out where to get traditional Estonian food.

“There is no such thing as Estonian restaurants,” the woman told us. “We don’t go out to eat Estonian food.” That statement left us very confused. Both in Lithuania and in Latvia, we had been able to find traditional restaurants. Surely, there had to be some in Estonia as well? And what about those (admittedly few) traditional dishes we had read about online?

Fortunately, even though it seems a bit difficult at times, you can find plenty of traditional food in Estonia.…

Singapore

Singapore is a fantastic place to visit. This ultra-modern city has a mix of cultures that can’t be found in many places in the World. Chinese, Indian, Malaysian… everything blends in the city-state melting pot. And the food is no exception! Eating in Singapore means enjoying the cuisine of all kind of countries, with its own unique local specialities. But, did you know Singapore is also the city with the cheapest Michelin Star Restaurants in the World?…

Germany

Every year, when the days get shorter, I get excited for Christmas. The Christmas Market in Frankfurt is one of the highlights of this season, and I can’t wait to get out and have a cup of hot Glühwein.

Usually, the month of December means meet-ups with friends and co-workers at the Christmas Market. Plus, we like to go by ourselves a few times, just to enjoy the lights and look at the various handicrafts.

Even though we’ve lived in Frankfurt for a few years already, we discover new things every time we go. Last winter, for example, I found out that you can get amazing grilled salmon at the market. We have also discovered some of the smaller markets, which are all worth visiting.

Bolivia

When talk comes to food in South America, people mention steaks and ceviche. Argentina is praised for its excellent beef and Peru for its huge variety of dishes. You might even know a few Brazilian or Columbian dishes. But have you ever heard of Bolivian food?

As I found out while visiting this Andean nation, Bolivia has a lot of delicious food to offer. From market stalls to fancy restaurants, you will never run out of possibilities to try yet another dish. I’ve put together my favourite ones below, so you know what to ask for.

Also, if you want to learn more about Bolivian food, I recommend joining a foodie tour. We went with Red Cap Tours in La Paz, which was lots of fun and also very tasty.…

Costa Rica

When I thought of Costa Rica, delicious food wasn’t the first highlight that came to my mind. I was expecting wildlife, cloud forests and waterfalls, but I never thought about Costa Rican dishes. Maybe because their cuisine isn’t well-known worldwide, or perhaps because I was too excited about the chance of seeing sloths.

But it turns out that food in Costa Rica is quite tasty. We tried a variety of dishes while travelling through the country, served at food stalls, in small cafes or excellent restaurants. And we are not the only ones who enjoyed eating out in Costa Rica. Below, you can find eight foods you should try, recommended by fellow travel bloggers.…

Nepal

Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is a chaotic city with constant traffic. Cars, bikes, scooters, buses, tuk-tuks, people… and definitely not enough sidewalks. It doesn’t matter where you are. There’s always someone honking or rushing near you.

However, this vibrant city is also full of markets, restaurants, trekking shops, handicraft shops, beautiful alleys and squares. It’s a great place to get lost and enjoy the city. Once you embrace the chaos and just go with the flow, you might end up loving the unique character of Kathmandu.…

Europe

Bern is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve had the pleasure to visit. I still remember being amazed at the landscape while peeking from the window of my train. The city itself is also gorgeous, with beautiful buildings, cobbled streets and lovely gardens.

In retrospect, I have no idea why it took me so long to visit Bern. I had been thinking about coming here for many years but it was never feasible. The closest airport was too far away, I didn’t have time or I just decided to go elsewhere. But from Frankfurt, my new home, it was so easy to get to Bern by bus that there was no reason to go anymore.

I absolutely loved Bern! If you haven’t been, I highly recommend that you go.…

Lithuania

What do you know about Lithuanian cuisine? Not much? Then you’re just like us. Before coming to Lithuania, all we knew was that people there ate a lot of potatoes. I also assumed they’d eat fish in the coastal areas, but that was it.

During our time in Lithuania, we got to discover lots of amazing dishes. Yes, people here like to eat potatoes. They also eat meat, soups, herring and produce amazing cheese and honey. Oh, and the desserts. Did you know about the delicious Lithuanian desserts?

If you’re travelling to this Baltic country, don’t miss out on any of those amazing dishes.…

Peru

One of the things I love about travelling is eating foreign food. And there is nothing more fascinating than the amount of fruit and vegetables that exist in the world and that I have never heard of.

Peru is no exception when it comes to exotic fruits. On markets, I found huge piles of produce that I couldn’t name and that I didn’t even know how to eat. Peruvian fruit is as diverse as the country itself. If you are wondering about which fruit to eat and how to prepare it, don’t worry. I have put together this guide so you can identify the 15 most common fruits and know what to do with them.…

Colombia

When I reached Cartagena after almost half a year of travelling through South America, I was tired of meat, rice and french fries. It didn’t matter where we went on this continent, it seemed as if half of the restaurants would only let you choose which kind of meat you wanted to have with your dry rice and your soggy french fries. And it didn’t matter which one we went for, the meat seemed to taste the same everywhere.

I am not saying that we didn’t have amazing food along the way. I remember that Patagonian lamb, for example. Or the delicious sopa de mani in Bolivia, a soup rich in flavours and spices. But there had also been parts where we hadn’t been able to afford anything other than the cheapest and most tasteless dishes, particularly in expensive regions like Patagonia or Galapagos.…
