So we’ve quit our jobs, let out the house, gave away the cats (we’re getting them back when we come back!), said goodbye to family and friends, and now we’re off to see the world.. well a small part of it anyway.
Somehow leaving town and all that isn’t as easy to do at our age as compared to when you’re 18 or 20. Not with bad backs and heels, family stuff, work commitments, elections coming up,cats, etc. But let’s get one thing straight, we tell ourselves… this is not a holiday, it’s travel. You know… to experience new sights and sounds, and hopefully learn some new things about the world and each other along the way. Something we’ve always wanted to do, especially after watching Anthony Bourdain eat his way across the globe.
Anyway, the general idea is to start from Morocco, then make our way across the Straits of Gibraltar and east across Europe and Central Asia. Lets see how many countries we can eat our way through.
