Food and Drink If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world..



It is amazing how important the food we eat when we travel is to our enjoyment of the journey. We can visit gourmet restaurants, or find a small bistro that serves traditional local fare. The meal may be hearty, or an elegant work of art on a plate. When I am on the road I have a particular fondness for a pause to sit and watch the world go by while sipping a hot, foamy cappuccino.
