No matter what continent you’re from, where you live or who you are, experiencing food is a central part of life.
Travelling is popular for a lot of reasons. For some, meeting and learning about new and interesting people can be the motivation. Sight seeing and exploring unfamiliar territory draws some to explore new lands. Experiencing new and different food is often has a significant part travelling to new places.
Not only are you likely to experience foods that are new to you, there is also the chance to experience ethnic food you may have tried at home under different and less authentic circumstances. Eating Sushi in Tokyo, for example, will give you a much more distinct experience than any fusion Sushi place in your neighbourhood. Sitting at a table with Japanese locals, drinking fresh green tea, snacking on ginger while chefs prepare fresh Sushi right in front of you is an unbeatable and delicious experience.
