Food and travel, one of life’s great experience intersections. Although we enjoy our share of refined cuisine and elaborate meals at restaurants, it’s often our street food quests — raw on-the-ground journeys that convey authenticity — that yield some of life’s most revealing moments and enlighten us in unexpected ways.
How street food can be the ultimate travel guide with 40 of our favorite street food dishes and adventures from around the world.

As we field questions about our own favorite destinations, most memorable experiences and where we recommend people to travel this year, we thought we’d add a twist to the traditional 2015 travel hot lists and share some places that might not be on your travel radar — but maybe should be.

What would you add to the list? 
Our offbeat travel destinations recommendations. Places that people often don't think to travel to, but really should for the beauty, culture and adventure.

During our last visit to Tanzania we visited a couple of Maasai villages involved in a +Planeterra Foundation  clean stoves project. Our mind was blown by how such a relatively inexpensive ($60) and seemingly mundane-sounding cooking device can make a huge difference to the health and quality of life of families that use it. Just try sitting for 2 minutes in a hut with a traditional stove if you don't believe us.

One of the big highlights of our recent visit to Ethiopia was its food - such savory, spicy, and rich goodness at every meal.

Honored to have been asked by BBC Travel to write about how we made the big decision to quit our jobs all those years ago on what was meant to be a 12-18 month creative sabbatical and how we've managed to do all this together...and stay married along the way  

Never would I have imagined that a photo of us and the story of our journey would be on the home page of BBC.com. Life is full of surprises

When people ask us, “What’s the most frightening thing you’ve done while travelling the world?”, they often expect a story from Iran, Kazakhstan or Rwanda. Yet while we have encountered plenty of challenges during our travels, many of which have been fodder for stories on our blog, our most difficult moment came before all that. It was when in 2006, as mid-career professionals, my wife and I handed in our resignation letters, setting aside the se...

Should travelers give money, pens or other things to children who beg? Is this really helping the places we visit? Or the best way to give?

Our recent trip to East Africa got us thinking about this issue a lot. In this article we share 7 reasons why you shouldn't give directly to kids + 7 ways to give responsibly and effectively. What are your thoughts on this issue?

My husband and I took the complete beginner German class with Expath (2 weekends, 6 hours/day). It was exactly the sort of boot camp we needed to get started with our language learning. Our teacher was fantastic - getting us to talk almost from the beginning, while still explaining the grammar and structure we needed to understand the fundamentals of the language. I'd highly recommend this class to anyone looking to get started with speaking German. We're looking forward to signing up for another class soon.
