Backpackers think with your belly
Industry insider Jonathan Cudworth, who's the director of product management at Expedia.co.uk, said that people in Britain definitely seem to be more adventurous when it comes to food from different cultures. Perhaps we're going to see more Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom-style cuisine popping up on the dinner table from now on. Someone pass the chilled monkey brains, please! Well, even if that's not the case, Mr Cudworth also remarked that there has been an increase in people booking holidays that include wine tours and cookery courses, which also sounds fun. I like to learn while I'm away too.
If tasty treats while you rest your weary backpacking feet appeal, a visit to Texas and the International Championship Chili Cook-off might be in order. If chili's a bit spicy, the festival also provides Tex-Mex, complete with fajitas, tortillas and guacamole. Texas itself has lots of different types of food to offer the hungry traveller, including delicious, freshly caught seafood if you're in the right town.
