How Far Will You go for the Love of Food

For food, we travel. That is quite like the new-age norm in the travel world these days. From gourmet food experiences to hands-on culinary sessions, food is not just a part of the itinerary any more. We are willing to go the extra mile for appeasing our taste buds and food travel is now a thing. If your Instagram bio reads ‘foodie’ then this is where you should be headed next year.
