There are so many interesting foods around the world, but interesting doesn’t always mean that they taste good or that you want to actually eat them. We definitely try to eat as much like a local as possible and we like to try as many local dishes as possible. That doesn’t mean that we are willing to try everything though, so we would probably consider ourselves to be semi-adventurous eaters. When we were in Iceland, we chose not to eat whale or puffin because of what eating them has done to their populations in the wild. One of the delicacies in Ecuador, where we are heading this weekend, is apparently a large guinea pig called cuy. We have heard that it doesn’t taste particularly good, so we will have to see if we end up giving it a try. What about you, would you eat scorpion, ants, or something else that you wouldn’t normally consider if you weren’t traveling?

I think I am pretty much on the same page as you for this one. I would definitely like to eat like locals, but I wouldn’t go TOO far I’d say!
It depends on how hungry I am and how expensive it is! Most of the time, I’m up for most anything. 😋
I’ve been curious about Pork Stomach!
We were a little apprehensive, but it was actually very good.
I don’t actually know! I love to stick with foods that I know taste good when i am starving, but if im not overly hungry I think I would try some new things!
Totally understand that one 🙂
Making my mouth water! And it’s only 8am!

You must visit this site – some fabulous food!
I always eat the local fare! It’s one of the joys of travelling and the experience is incomplete without it.
Definitely agree 🙂
