Colombia was off limits. As in totally off limits. Growing up in South Florida in the 90s, well, to put it lightly, Colombia had a bad reputation. I never dreamed of traveling there, but times have changed and with it, along with some encouragement from close friends, I took a chance on Cartegna, Colombia.
Danes themselves are quick to admit that, until just a few years back, Copenhagen didn’t really have much of a street food scene. But these days, you'd have no idea as there's everything from halls to stalls to street vendors across the City of Bikes. On our recent visit to the city of bicycles, smørrebrød and minimalist cool, we searched out another new Nordic scene: Copenhagen’s street food fare.
If you're planning a trip to Morocco, people will tell you to spend a majority of your time between Marrakech and Casablanca. But, we'd recommend a different plan. Instead? Instead, we'd suggest (er, insist) you spend some time wandering off the beaten path.
Living in Manhattan for almost a decade, I was used to having everything at my fingertips. Well, everything except nature. But after relocating to Denver, getting outdoors is my norm, with one my favorites being the road trip to Boulder. And, as the weather thaws, Boulder is a pretty perfect day trip because it has something for everyone — hiking or biking; shopping; and lots of great dining. I tend to do all three: head on a hike, stock up on produce at the Farmers Market, and finish the afternoon with a bite (or two).
I swear there’s something about the food in Israel. It's as if the tomatoes are sweeter, eggplant meatier, and watermelons crisper. Maybe it’s the sunshine, maybe it’s the soil, or maybe the history, but the bottom line is that the food is good. I travel to Israel on the regular to visit family and as soon as we land in Tel Aviv, our tastebuds are ready to explore.
