Finding delicious local cuisine in an unfamiliar place can be daunting. Sure, there are lists of restaurants with hundreds of reviews and articles outlining the best places to dine, but there’s always an abundance of choice. And how do you know which ones are authentic? After all, food is a gateway to the culture of a place, so you want restaurants to reflect that.
Our guest this week is Suresh Doss, a food journalist who always travels with an appetite for local cuisine. Over the years he has perfected his strategy for eating like a foodie while abroad and in this episode, he shares that plan with Mo.
When Jada Yuan was chosen to be the New York Times’ 52 Places Traveler she was shocked and excited. I mean, who wouldn’t be?! The chosen traveller would get to visit 52 places on the paper’s Best Places to Travel in 2018 list in one year. There would be a lot of eating, a lot of adventure and a lot of alone time–after all, she’d be travelling by herself.
Jada is back from her whirlwind journey around the globe and she’s had some time to reflect on everything she saw. She’s also become a bonafide expert on travelling solo. This week Mo asks her to break down the logistics of solo travel and share some of her favourite stories from the year abroad.
Between school, play dates and extracurricular activities, kids’ schedules are quite regimented, which can be stressful for our little humans. On one hand, it’s good for them to have busy schedules. On the other, does all that routine give them enough time to just be, well, kids? This week’s guest didn’t think so. To free her family from their routine, she decided to take them on a trip around the world. What she found along the way changed their family forever.
Heather Greenwood Davis is a travel journalist and mother of two handsome boys. In this episode, she tells Mo what they had to sacrifice to make the trip happen, how they stayed sane travelling as a family, and why everyone should travel with their kids.
