DIY Tech Vegetarian Love and Sex Home Food Sign up with Babyboop1983 7 years love new food!!! is the fun of travel!! lms 7 years I will definitely try different foods wherever I go. I tried Ostrich and Boar in South Africa. The Ostrich tasted like beef and the Boar tasted like barbecued pork. Oh, and I have tried Alligator, which taste like chicken. I am quite adventurous when it comes to food. saffy1227 7 years Really depends. SU3 7 years I love trying out new dishes, but I'm definitely a bit hesitant sometimes. I definitely agree with a lot of the above though - one of the best things about traveling is trying out different foods! AucuneRancune 7 years Ha - I didn't realize that response was almost verbatum to one of the multiple choices :) AucuneRancune 7 years That's half of the reason I travel!! DCStar 7 years Oh Absolutely. Half my reason for traveling is for the food! I can't understand when I am traveling with somebody, and they want to eat at a McDonalds or are afraid to try anything! figurine 7 years Thanks for the helpful link, mellie_608. :) crispet1 7 years Absolutely. VIOLHAINE 7 years Where's the genuine part, otherwise? :) Mme-Hart 7 years OMG yessssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!! amber_castaldo 7 years My husband has a try it first policy. We were vegetarians for years but since our last trip to boston my husband has been eatting fish. We try it all! andrea426 7 years I'm a definite fan of ethnic food! I'm up for new things, as long as it doesn't have meat! :D wowjules 7 years Absolutely! You wouldn't go to India to eat McDonalds (even though their McDonalds differs from ours). 1missy 7 years Yes absolutely! That's what makes a trip more exciting. mellie_608 7 years If you're traveling, check out this CDC website! http://www.cdc.gov/travel/index.htm You can enter the country you are traveling to and receive all the updated health information for that area. mellie_608 7 years It's good to be cautious for sure. My best friends step-mom just came back from a vaction in Mexico and is still really sick from a foodborne illness contracted there. She may take months to fully recover, it's so sad. mellie_608 7 years I was really picky as a kid, and now that my tastes have broadened, I look forward to trying new things! If you don't, you miss out! sweetheart_450 7 years I absolutely try new foods! When you travel the point is to get away from your everyday life. To me, it seems silly to have the same food you would eat at home. i-heart-monster 7 years Totally depends on where I am. I try new things if the place looks clean, but if the town is kinda scary, i usually wait to eat until I find something I know. I know that's kind of crazy, but it's psychological I'm sure. figurine 7 years Depends on where I go. I have this irrational fear of being food poisoned, so I tend to be a bit cautious. lorioz 7 years Food is the best part of going to a new place! MustangMonday 7 years Some of the best foods that I love are from the local flare. I always make it a point to try local foods. For example in Jamacia they have "coco bread" which is the tastiest bread I have ever had. I wish I had some now. :smile: GeikoSera 7 years I'll try it if it's healthy!! partysugar 7 years Always! I'm all about sampling local cuisines, checking out farmer's markets and grocery stores (along with purchasing spices and products that are native to that area), and asking for recipes at restaurants.
