I love cooking and good food! Not always having my own kitchen is one of the biggest disadvantages of traveling for me, no matter how great the food on offer is. That’s one of the reasons why I like to travel slow and if possible rent a place with a simple kitchen. Otherwise it’s just too hard to drool over my favorite food blogs that leave me hungry and a desperate need to try out new recipes! Can you relate? I hope so – because here are my favorite food blogs. A small warning: don’t start checking them out when you are hungry!
