Can't Afford to Travel? Let Your Taste Buds Take You There

Can't Afford to Travel? Let Your Taste Buds Take You There

If the travel bug has gotten ahold of you lately but your funds are limited, then Budget Travel could provide the solutions you need to get from here to there. For some of us, taking anything but a staycation is out of the question, and the mindful magazine provides something for travelers-at-heart who can't afford to leave town.

In its December/January issue, Budget Traveler features locally recommended Tuscan restaurants with descriptions of the savory Italian specialties. Knowing that readers' mouths would water, the issue includes recipes for typical Tuscan dishes for those of us with budgets that can't stomach a trip to Italy. So when you're feeling antsy about getting away from it all, why not bring recipes from international kitchens into your own?

Have fun experimenting with a new dish and pretending that you're sampling cuisine in another country, and rent a film that complements the theme set by the food you made. It may not compare to the vacation you've been dreaming of, but a fraction of the cost and a little imagination can get you a mini-escape. Check out YumSugar and BuzzSugar for food and movie inspiration!

i think that this is a GREAT idea - sometimes just making a 'theme' night does the trick to give you something a little different, and yes it's not exactly the same as a vacation - it's up there a little bit.

How delighted I am to see that our favorite restaurant in Castellina in Chiant--Ristorante di Pietrafitta--is featured. I cannot wait to go back to Tuscany!
