C'mon, I've tried two of the three and I don't have any memory of bug eating. Not saying it never happened, I just don't remember it.

I know for a fact I've eaten a few bugs while biking!

I'm not a seasoned traveler at all (wish I were), but I do love to try new things. When my daughters and I go to restaurants out of town, I like to try things I have never had before - they like to stick with the tried and true old faves.

I'll be adventurous with a locale's culinary adventures except for two categories: water-dwelling critters with more than two arms and/or legs, and offal (there is a reason it is pronounced "awful", as far as I'm concerned).* Otherwise, I'll try something once if the sum of the entree description looks appealing. Fortunately, Himself's taste buds are either more open-minded or less discerning of flavors, but if I really don't like a particular flavor he's more than happy to finish my dish up too.

Our younger niece, a Florida native and true-blue child of the U. S., is on a real culinary adventure. Her husband was born in Taiwan, his parents still live there. Niece and nephew-in-law recently made the difficult decision (for her) to move to Taiwan to take care of his aging parents. For someone who's range of foods was about this()big, she is now trying all sorts of unusual foods. Bravo for her! (Although last night they actually went to a Pizza Hut for pizza and wings. )

* Oddly enough, when I was a kid I loved czarnina (Polish duck's blood soup) and kidney stew. Somehow, as I got older and my tastes were supposed to expand, I suddenly found I just couldn't eat those anymore.

I subscribe to the Anthony Bourdain style of travel. Eat your way through the trip and most importantly, eat what they eat and drink like a fish!

I don't travel very often, now, but if I do have to go someplace, I always spend time on the 'Net looking for local specialties and places to go near the hotel that offer food choices I either don't make at home or just are available here. For me, the best part about traveling is the culinary experiences and being able to bring home foodie stuff...

Keeping kosher makes travel complicated. So we try to plan our trips to places where kosher food is easy to find. Sometimes we have to pack enough food for the whole trip. Rode trips are the hardest. Incidentally that is why I was looking for a large size thermos. Still have not found any that would work.

Charlie, we have one of these in our jeep, http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-40-Qua...ustomerReviews it works awesome, my wife will use it when she goes shopping and plans on not coming right home, she bags all her freezer and cold items together, drops them in and can stay out all day without worrying.

When we go on long driving trips or before hiking, we plug it in and it keeps all our food and drinks cold, when we went to maine for xmas shopping last year we took food from our house, put it in the cooler, drove to maine, took the cooler into the hotel room and plugged it in inside the room until we were ready to leave..

For long road trips and days I know I am not going to be around restaurants or not going to have the time to stop {or just don't want to eat diner food for a week straight}, I will also bring my burton stove http://www.amazon.com/Max-Burton-Por...max+burton+12v , and I will make myself how ever many meals in tin disposable containers that I can throw in and heat up on the road...

One note I also keep a 12v jump pack in my jeep incase I end up with a dead battery, but its an affordable setup, the cooler, stove, and jump pack are less than $250 all together... I also have a tent that locks into my jeep



We hike and camp a lot that little fridge / cooler comes in handy...
