Ernest Hemingway once said: "Writing and travel broaden your ass if not your mind and I like to write standing up."
I am no exception to the travelling broadening the mind rule, travelling broadened my mind with most aspects of life. Travelling wasn't just a mental exercise for me, it was a privilege. I met lots of people on my travels who would love to have the opportunity I did. So I decided to embrace every chance I got.
Food was no different... as a child I was a fussy eater, the typical wouldn't even try anything I didn't like the look of type child.
Travelling changed all that, from the pap and meat dishes of northern Namibia to the BBQ dishes of southern USA, my tastebuds were introduced to new textures and flavours.
It is not just those flavours, it's an open mind to try anything new. I have since tried all manner of interesting and wonderful foods.
That would be my challenge to anyone approaching the world pizza van... try something you normally wouldn't.
