I’m still figuring out which travel gear to buy for my backpacking trip… any advise?
At this moment I have this AltaRuta65 backpack, which I bought a few years ago in Barcelona. I haven’t got a clue so far how many liters fit in this backpack…but how many liters do I actually need? Anyone?
Did you ever buy any clothes or shoes abroad, thinking you’ll never find anyone back home with the same handmade local fashion?
Well, half a year ago I went to Kuala Lumpur and I visited a place named Central Market. There I bought these beautiful Indian sandals of which I thought I wouldn’t find other Dutchies wearing them as well.
This weekend I was in Belek, Turkey where I met a Dutch girl, Petra Horsch, who asked me if I bought my ‘rare shoes’ in Kuala Lumpur…
Insects are a common ingredient for food in Hispanic Latin American countries.
Let’s have a look at the Oaxacan (state in southwestern Mexico) menu: guacamole with grasshoppers. Yummy!
I personally recommend everybody to taste the Oaxacan grasshoppers as they taste like real good chips. I really like the taste and I even brought some prepared grasshoppers to the Netherlands for my friends after visiting Mexico for the 2nd time.
Want to try? If you are visiting Oaxaca and you would like to order grasshoppers, ask for a dish with ‘chapulines’ which is the Mexican name for these jumping bugs.
