One of the things that fascinates me about travel, is the way that people eat in other countries. I will always have visiting the local supermarket/market on my list of must do’s, as I love to check out what the daily meals consist of, and to see what flavours are used and how food is presented. I also love to try new flavours, and tend to go out of my way to avoid my standard eating choices from home, because my holiday travels are as much a culinary journey, as a visual and cultural one.
Thailand, for me, represents ooodles of noodles, beautiful fragrant curries, and lots of seafood and fishy flavours. Thai people are street eaters. Vendors drive around with a sidecar on their motorbikes that are mobile kitchens, or they set up shop on the side of the street somewhere to cook fresh to order, noodles, grill fish and meats or to freshly cut fruit. Somethings I’d probably prefer not to know what they are selling, I know nothing is left to waste on an animal, everything is a delicacy for someone, perhaps justn not for me.
Given that a camera is always close to hand when I travel, I thought you might like to see some of what we saw whilst we were away travelling in Phuket and Bangkok this month.
A visual feast of our trip of Thailand for you all to enjoy.
