As I get older, the wish to feel a sense of wonder hasn't diminished. And in 2012, without realizing it, Agri and I were lucky enough to visit 5 of the 7 New Wonders of the World, as well as the Honorary candidate - and only surviving Ancient World Wonder - the Pyramid of Giza.
For travelers, food is one of the most interesting aspects of visiting a new country. From souvlaki in Greece, to kebabs in Jordan to pasta in Italy to curry in India, food defines a country as much as the landscape and the people. Good or bad cuisine can make you want to stay forever, just to continue eating, or it can make you want to check out of the country earlier than planned.
Sometimes when you're traveling, you find yourself in strange places. Usually, it happens because other travelers you meet suggest an interesting event or place that you've never considered or heard of. On a whim, you decide to check it out. And of course, it's this ability to be totally spontaneous that's one of the most beautiful things about long term travel.
It doesn't matter what country I'm in, the second I get a whiff of sweet, fragrant keffir lime, I am immediately transported to Thailand and straight into the memory of a fiery bowl of green curry chicken, devoured while relaxing by beautiful, blue seas. The same goes for the smell of burning leaves.
