Our “Yummy” Collection of Food and Drinks from Around the World

Summary: Who doesn’t like food? Check out our 20 favorite dishes and drinks that we discovered during our 16 months of travel. While traveling, one of the things that can be quite challenging is food. When you discover a country, everything is new, including what you eat. The language barrier doesn’t help you get information about the ingredients of dishes, so most of the time you just have to try. The good thing is that usually the experience is rewarding. We want to share with you the different food and drinks we discovered during our 18 months of travel, and the one we liked the most. Tacos and Burritos Having been living in the Middle East for a long time, we hadn’t...

Summary: Here are four famous Norman cheeses that we recommend you taste if you’re in France. So if you’re a cheese lover, this post is for you. This almost sounds like a book title!

Where to Eat in Oruro

Where to eat or have a drink in Oruro? Despite the fact that Oruro is not a very big city, there are plenty of good places to eat and have a drink so you won’t have any problem to find what you want. * 1$=6.95 BoB “Bolivianos” (2012) Though it is mentioned in travel guides that the best food in Bolivia is in Cochabamba, we found in Oruro quite a lot of decent and cheap restaurants where we had most of the times “almuerzos” (lunches) and sometimes dinner, here is a list of our favorites.

Our First Days in La Paz

Our First Days in La Paz

We arrived in La Paz in the middle of the night after a very tiring flight from Los Angeles. The first thing you see from the plane—and then at anytime during the night—is the lights. La Paz, unlike many other cities, is illuminated by two different colors of lights—yellow and blue. This is so beautiful—it looks like a big Christmas tree. In addition, the different levels of the city increases the beauty of this night landscape. * 1$=6.95 BoB “Bolivianos” (2012) We found a room on Airbnb and stayed at a Bolivian family home (Natalia & her mother) in southern La Paz, a 20-minute drive from downtown. The family was waiting for us, and after welcoming us...

Halal Food in La Paz

We arrived in Bolivia two weeks ago as part of our round-the-world journey. Prior to Bolivia we were at my uncle’s house in Los Angles, and worrying about halal food wasn’t really an issue. The trip to Bolivia, however, made us question if we would be able to find halal food while traveling. In an attempt to answer this question, we did a search online and Google searched to find proper places for halal food. We found nothing, which was a bit depressing, since we planned to spend around three months in this country! But on our second or third day we went to extend our visas, and from there we wandered around downtown La Paz. While we were walking, we saw a big...
