About eight weeks ago, I was offered an unbelievable opportunity. My love of travel and passion for food melded into one beautiful adventure almost seamlessly. I had little time to prepare for my 3 ½ week trip.
I read about the history and culture as much as time allowed and took a crash course in the basic language. I learned the exchange rates for money. Finally, I packed a single 20” suitcase, loaded the camera bag with lenses and extra memory cards, grabbed my passport and boarding pass, one light jacket and embarked on an amazing journey.
