It’s a well known fact that food just tastes better when you are on vacation. Everyone knows this. Maybe it is because you are happier or because you associate good memories with it and you just remember it as tasting better. I don’t know. But I do know that lately I have been associating food with my previous vacations because I am a) missing travel a little bit, and b) hungry. There are a few meals in particular that I can think of that I just want to eat all the time.
My brother and I went on a cruise in 2010 and when we were in St. Croix we were at this private beach and it had a restaurant and in that restaurant I had the best chicken wrap in the world. It was perfect and I want another one.
I waited two hours for deep dish pizza at Gino’s East in Chicago and it was so worth it. I would have waited two more hours for that pizza. Chicago is my favourite US city just because of Gino’s East.
This is not really vacation-specific but the first time I had a churro I was at Disney World and they don’t really sell churros in Canada and I often am sad about that fact.
In Germany the common thing for breakfast was bread and cheese. In Fussen we were at a bed and breakfast and their bread was so fresh and soft and amazing and the cheese was just laughing cow cheese but somehow it was better. I have dreams about that bread.
At Disney they have this thing called Dole Whip, which is pineapple flavoured soft serve ice cream, and they only sell it at Disney Parks and at the Dole factory in Hawaii. It is like heaven in a frozen treat. Sometimes I want to go to Florida just for Dole Whip.
This blog is kind of self-indulgent and also now I’m way hungrier than I was before. Here is a picture of me eating Dole Whip so that you can understand why it is so amazing.
