If you’d rather eat your way through your next vacation than take in a museum or sit on a sunny beach; then a culinary vacation is an obvious choice. After all, have you really experienced a place until you’ve tasted it? Vacations focusing on the finer aspects of cooking, food and wine actually help you learn more about a country or region. For example can you imagine visiting Italy and not sitting down to a table that has disappeared under a mass of food and wine? Or going to Istanbul or Morocco without visiting a spice market? Or to Africa without a cursory market experience? You can sharpen your culinary skills too so when you finally return home, you’re still reliving the travel experience. Hit the road and be satiated.
