India is full of wonders and, without a doubt, one of those is its food. As Tyler previously mentioned, it took us 18 days before we repeated a dish. Not surprising when you see the number of vegetables, meats, & spices Indians like to cook with. We kept a detailed list of everything we tried so we could share with you a few of our favorites meals & those I actually took pictures of...sometimes the food just looked too delicious and I completely forgot. We even showed this list to our fellow train-mate during our trip from Agra to Delhi and he was very impressed with the variety and number of dishes we managed to fit in our short three & a half week trip.Read More

As Tyler mentioned in his Top 5 post, we were beyond excited to try the food in Singapore. After our time in New Zealand and Australia where we ate in as much as possible and 5 months in South America, where we got our fill of meat and potatoes, we could not wait to get our hands (or should I say mouths?) on rice, noodles, seafood, fruit... well everything really. You'll notice that we ate at hawker centers, complexes which house numerous, inexpensive food stalls, almost exclusively (save for the chili crab) because the food is cheaper there and just as delicious, if not more, as compared to restaurants.Read More
New Zealand was somewhere both of us were extremely excited to visit. Anaïs had never been and, while I spent a semester in college studying at Otago University in Dunedin, I didn't explore the north island at all. We were excited to return to a few places I had been and to venture on to places new to us both. Given how expensive travel can be there, we planned to spend only about a month traveling across the country and we needed to make our time count.Read More
