5 Steps to Eat Safely from Street Vendors by +Agness Walewinder 

I'd hate to go through my travels seeing all kinds of delicious food being prepared on the street, but not feeling comfortable enough to try any of it.  *eTramping.com* provides five quick tips for judging whether that tasty looking street bite will leave you curled up in your hotel room for the next few days.

Great guide by +Kash Bhattacharya with +Walks of Italy on cheap eats in Venice by way of the cicchetti.  WIll definitely be on the lookout for these when we're in Venice next week!
 
In the latest cheap eats guide, I am lifting the lid on one of Venice's best kept foodie secrets...
  It’s been almost 12 years since I first visited Venice. Everytime I’ve visited this city, I’ve grown to love it a little bit more. There are still some things that I guess the passage of time will never make easier for me when it comes to Venice. Like the problem of finding cheap accommodation [...]

Had a few Irish craft beers in October, love the scene growing there.
 
Beoir, (the Irish word for beer), is a short  film about the emerging Irish craft brewery scene, showcasing The Donegal brewing company, Innishmacsaint brewing company, Mescan brewing company, Kinnegar brewing company and Poker Tree brewing company. These new mainly farmhouse breweries are based on the wonderful green island of Ireland. This film showcases not only  the breweries but the Island of Ireland itself. Listen to the brewers tell their story in their own words and follow them on their journey at the very start of this emerging craft brewing scene in Ireland. From under Irelands holy mountain Croagh Patrick to the lakes of Fermanagh, Beoir is a fascinating and beautifully shot film.

I've noticed too that the craft beer scene has really come alive in the last year in Ireland. Great stuff. Always good to have choices when looking for a tipple.

Visit Carlsberg in Copenhagen, Denmark

One of my favorite things to do when I travel is try the local beers.  And when I happen to be in a city that's home to a beer, I do try to visit them at the source.  Copenhagen is home to the original Carlsberg Brewery, with brands such as Carlsberg, Tuborg and Jacobsen.  And more than just the beer, there's also a sculpture garden and stables.  Definitely worth a visit if you're visiting!

Beer Lovers visiting Europe should be sure to pay a visit to the Visit Carlsberg brewery tour in Copenhagen, Denmark.

One of our favorite quick meals, or occasional snack, in Japan is Kushikatsu.  On one visit to Osaka, we actually managed to stop into a kushikatsu restaurant every day we were there!  

Have you ever tried this simple, yet tasty treat?
Have you ever tried street food in Osaka? Don't miss out on kushikatsu -- one of my favorite Japanese foods!

A visit to the Fallbrook Avocado Featival today. Avocado available in various forms, including Per piece, guacamole, beer, fudge, ice pops, and ice cream. Definitely worth a visit down to Fallbrook today.

This Carrot sweet potato peanut pear soup meal recipe from +Service From Heart  does sound really delicious. 
Why do rabbits love carrots? There must be plenty of good things in carrots that we can enjoy too by eating carrots. Perhaps it is the bunny teeth of rabbits that make us imagine that rabbits easily bite raw carrots off. Howe...

What makes some dessert wines so sweet?  Rotten Grapes!

Officially called botrytis cinerea, most people just refer to this fungus as "botrytis." Botrytis affects a number of plant species, but when it comes to wine m

Our Tasty Travels - Tasting the World, One Country at a Time
Introduction
I am an expat and world traveler, currently based in the Netherlands, near Eindhoven, recently living in Taipei, Taiwan, but originally from the USA.  I work for a high-tech manufacturer in the semiconductor industry by day, but the rest of the time I explore my loves of travel, wine, beer and food.

I love flying, scuba diving, taking long road trips, staying in nice hotels, eating in nice restaurants, eating street food, and hanging out in bars / pubs.  I strive to find the highest point in any city to see the best view there is to see.

I was born in Connecticut, and went to high school and college in Pennsylvania.  I spent a few years working for family and friends before deciding I was ready for corporate life and trying to find a job in industry.  It took me a while, and I had to move from Pennsylvania back to Connecticut, but I finally landed a temp position with a company in 1999...and am still there today!

I've been to 47 different countries, and have done multiple round-the-world trips, including some of the craziest itineraries you could imagine.  Now my travels are a little more sane, but I still love to take every opportunity to go to new places.

We run our blog, Our Tasty Travels, in which we showcase some of our favorite restaurants, foods, wines, beers and experiences from around the word.  Always open to try new places and new experiences, be it street food or three-star dining.

I've been a beer lover for years, always looking to try new beers.  The first thing I look at anywhere I go is the beer list.  If there's anything on the list I haven't tried before, I go for that before anything else they have on offer.  I've tried hundreds of beers, but have only just recently begun to chronicle these experiences.  I guess I need to go back and taste them all again?

I've been a lover of wine since my first visit to wine country, in Alsace, in December, 2008.  I was hooked for good after my first visit to Napa Valley in January, 2009.  I've since been to over 25 wineries in Napa Valley, and many more around the world, and love trying new varietals and new labels when possible.

I'm a certified PADI open water diver since 2010, and love taking every opportunity I can to dive in a new location, wherever in the world I am.  Would love to hone my photography skills, and learn enough to justify some serious underwater photography gear.  Right now we're on our second cheap underwater point-and-shoot, though this one is with a housing at least.  Let's see hour our 2011 vacation pics come out...

I also love movies.  Up through 2009, I had seen every movie in the IMDB top 250, and am trying to catch back up on some new entries to the list (which unfortunately, almost all seem to be unavailable on Netflix Streaming) :-(  I love all types of movies, and would love some good suggestions for movies that I may have missed that are worth seeing...
