One of my favourite chefs and TV personalities Anthony Bourdain has learned a thing or two from travelling the globe and eating his way through various countries. After experiencing some of these things for myself, I have to agree with all of his wisdom. Below are some of my favourite quotes from him to help inspire you to get out there and experience our beautiful planet for yourself.
1.) “I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.”
2.) “Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks – on your body or on your heart – are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.”
3.) “You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together.”
4.) “Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.”
5.) “Good food and good eating are about risk.”
