Travel and Food

“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.” ~ James Michener

is the prompt by Corinne at from7eight for the Thursday Writer's Post

Yesterday we went to Otaki a little town about an hour's drive from Wellington. We went fruit and vegetable picking and on our way back after spending an afternoon in the sun (and the sun in NZ really burns), we stopped by to have some  local home made ice-cream with fresh fruit. 

Ice-cream on a hot day - Heavenly!
(my 6 words for 6 word Saturday)

Quite interesting to watch as instead of the usual fruit and scoops, this place blends it all together to create a thick smooth ice-cream. You choose the fruits, the ice cream flavour and any other toppings.  

So I chose strawberries and bananas with chocolate ice-cream and topping of nuts. Came out with quite an interesting flavour. Predominantly strawberry with a hint of banana kind of as an after-taste.




Wherever I travel, I like to taste the local Chinese cuisine. Sounds crazy? Actually in each place the Chinese food tastes different. Perhaps I'm biased, but I think the Chinese food in Mumbai tastes the best. 

Which leads me onto my favourite Indian food. And on each of my visits to India, these are the foods I enjoy and must have -  the yummiest food ever. 





Enjoy your day and wherever you are, eat and be merry.

Warm Regards

  6. I have so many food allergies that I do have to be very, very careful when I travel...and I often take my own food along with me! I still go places and enjoy myself, but it does make eating in restaurants nearly impossible! BUT..I am glad you enjoyed yourself...and the food sounds good and looks yummy! :)

    Hope you are having a good week!

    1. Hi Linda, my son also has allergies so has to be very careful. We rarely eat out as he prefers home cooked food. But yes, I had a blast eating!
