Travel is all about novelty: new sights, sounds — not to mention savors and scents! Food is an undeniable pillar of travel, whether it be a renowned dish, an unexpected treat, or a meal that turned all your expectations on their heads. This week, we’ll be thinking with our stomachs — sharing our favorite past meals and strangest delicacies, as well as looking for the next travel delight to get our jaws on!

- Cyra of Road Less Forked (@roadlessforked): food tour guide and travel blogger based in Seville, SP
