Regardless of who's traveling or where they're going, the couples and families we send on trips for our Trip Coach column eventually all ask the same question: Where should we eat? Food mattersthe way it brings people together, gives us insight into other cultures, reminds us to slow down, or, when it's really good, completely stops us in our tracks. What role does food play in your travels? Share your stories!
Every so often a travel story or newly translated cookbook inspires us to reprint recipes on BudgetTravel.com. Here's a sampling of some recent favorites that bring home the flavors of places like Bologna, Goa, and Veracruz. Bon appetit!
Anyone who has traveled through Honolulu's airport can appreciate the work of architect Vladimir Ossipoff. His renovations in the 1970s created open-air corridors that let travelers experience the temperate breezes immediately upon disembarking. Like the airport, Ossipoff's modernist buildings incorporate local materials and careful consideration of the environment. A traveling exhibit on Ossipoff opens this monthour slide show offers a preview!
