Savor the Flavor: Spice Up Your Next Getaway

By Melissa Rice on February 1, 2019

Travel appeals to our senses—hearing the crash of ocean waves, seeing the bright lights of a city skyline, or feeling warm sand between your toes. Judging from the popularity of food-related hashtags and social media posts, it’s obvious that many travelers also enjoy indulging their sense of taste!

Want to sprinkle in some flavor on your next trip? Here are a few travel ideas to tempt your taste buds.

Exotic spices

Exotic Exploration – The world offers an endless variety of ingredients and cooking styles. Specialized foodie tours make it easy to explore vibrant destinations like Thailand, Morocco, Peru, and more. These trips include guided visits through local markets and street fairs, unique dining experiences, and hands-on cooking lessons.


Wine glasses and river

Wine and Dine – Sail through some of the world’s top wine regions on a luxurious European river cruise. Wine-focused itineraries feature expert lectures, tastings, and culinary pairings. Or plan a custom self-drive tour along New Zealand’s wine trail or through California’s Napa Valley.



Beer flight

Hop(s) On Board – River cruises are also a great way to explore beer-producing regions in Germany and Amsterdam. You can include tours of local breweries, visits to malt factories and hops fields, and of course, plenty of tastings. And what beer lover wouldn’t enjoy a pub crawl through Dublin or London?


Coffee beans

Spice it Up – If an entirely food-themed trip isn’t your style, you can still add a pinch of culinary adventure to your next vacation. Try a food-themed shore excursion to experience local specialties in cruise ports across the globe. Take a break from the beaches of Jamaica, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic to tour a local coffee plantation or distillery. The possibilities are endless… and delicious!
