Whether it's a vacation, a business trip, or a family reunion—we're all grateful for the chance to travel. Here's why we love it, and why you doubtless do too!
1. You get to try new food
Honestly, it really is as simple as that: a new dish, an intriguing new street food, or a hole-in-the-wall speakeasy with dim lighting and amazing cocktails. While it's fairly easy to take our senses for granted, the ability to taste and try new food is one of the best things about life and about travelling—plus, you don't have to travel far to try new food outside your comfort zone.
Though international cuisine gets the best fantastic rep for exciting degustation, local cities and eateries are home to some of the best hidden gems we can think of. Next time you're outside your city, abroad, or simply on a different island, take a leap of faith and by trying something new, something weird, or something completely unpronounceable. You might just thank us later.
