One of my greatest pleasures in life is travel. From my earliest memories I have always expressed a curiosity about other cultures and had a tremendous passion for seeing foreign lands. Knowing how people live out their daily lives has been an extreme interest and fascination. Learning how individuals interact within their environment, how they dress, what they eat, and to be honest the plain allure of observation is a great purpose for traveling.
Naturally you visit a country to see the physical surroundings either as a whole or within a particular geographical area, but for me it’s the everyday life of the locals that captures my attention. I find myself defining a culture by their art and the foods they eat. I feel I have uncovered buried treasure if someone shares a recipe along with the ingredients for a dish I have enjoyed within an establishment. And, art for the sake of art is always a creative indulgence.
