Adventures in Food
In our final days and weeks living in Bali, everything seemed just a little, well, off. Things were happening a little differently. Restaurants we frequented for months were suddenly messing up our order. The super markets were out of good bananas. I couldn’t find parking in front of Buddha Mart. It was just the little things, but it was enough to make us roll our eyes and make comments about how Bali was ensuring we got the heck out.
Just a few days before we flew from Bali to Bangkok on Air Asia, we heard the news about the Air Asia crash. There was nothing we could do. We were still going to take our flight. Something similar happened with Malaysia Airlines. We flew Malaysia Airlines from Kuala Lumpur to Bali just hours after they had their plane shot down over Ukraine.read more
I’ve been wanting a travel tattoo for quite some time, but just could not decide what to get. I didn’t want a compass, or a map, or the globe, or foot prints. I just wanted something unique, so I put it off for the longest time.
After brainstorming for at least a year on the perfect travel tattoo, I was stumped. I had nothing. Google searches for travel tattoos never resulted in anything interesting. Then, I suddenly came up with a brilliant idea, why can’t my travel tattoo be a food travel tattoo, and in that case, why not get the With Husband in Tow logo as my travel tattoo?read more
Eric is his father’s son in one very important way – 3 square meals a day and dinner is meat, potatoes, and a veg. It is something I had to get used to when we started dating in college. At that point, my typical dinner was chips, salsa, and diet a coke. Or, sometimes I would make myself a rice-a-roni. That was as complicated a meal as I would cook.
Eric, though, needs his three meals a day, and still needs a full lunch. So, after a few days in Barcelona, where we ate very well, but ate only tapas, Eric was in need of a big meal, a full meal. On Sunday, we wandered around looking for a decent menu del dia, normally an appetizer, entree, vegetables, dessert, wine, and coffee for about 10 Euros. Eric was practically begging me to find him a large plate of meat. He needed a full sized meal.read more
