If you’re anything like me, tomatoes are the first thing that comes to mind when you plan to have a summer garden. Of course, there are tons of varieties of veggies, fruits, herbs and edible flowers that might adorn your backyard garden throughout the year. However, most American gardeners put growing tomatoes at the very top of their gardening must-do lists thanks to the incomparable flavors of this delicious fruit and the piles of fruit that a tomato plant can produce in a relatively short period of time. In fact, just a handful of healthy tomatoes can produce a bounty

Best of 2017 – Our Food and Travel Favorites

by Daryl & Mindi Hirsch @ 2foodtrippers

2017 was a busy year for the 2foodtrippers. We traveled to three continents, 13 countries and too many cities to count. Check out the food and travel experiences that were our best of 2017. We began the year 2017 without definite plans. Perhaps we could plan our calendar way in advance as some ‘type A’ people probably do, but what’s the fun in that? Sometimes, we’re just hanging around our Naples, Italy apartment and, all of a sudden, the spark of travel shoots across our brains and, on a whim, we ...

7 Habits of Highly Effective Business Travelers

7 Habits of Highly Effective Business Travelers

by Laura Longwell @ TripIt Blog

Business travel can have its high points and its low points, but regular travelers learn that there are ways to make even tough situations significantly better.  These are the seven habits of highly effective business travelers.    1. Pack Like a Pro Road warriors don’t start from scratch every time they have to pack for a trip.  Instead, they keep a suitcase at the ready with basics already packed along with toiletries like a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, and even makeup.  These pro travelers keep a packing list on hand and know exactly what items they need to snag before heading out of town.  And they always carry on in case they need to switch flights at the last minute.  2.  Leverage the Power of Technology Pro travelers leverage technology to its maximum benefit.  They use apps like TripIt Pro to alert them to flight changes or delays, Waze to shave time of their drives, and Lounge Buddy to find VIP lounges in airports.  They use the Global Entry, TSA PreCheck, and CLEAR programs to speed their way through lines.  By using the right tools, they take some of the stress and discomfort out of travel.    3. Check-in Early, or Late Experienced travelers know that there is a timing and a rhythm to travel.  They capitalize on the natural flow and use it to their advantage.  They are ...

THE DIFFERENT FLAVOURS OF VIETNAMESE FOOD | Vietnamese Food Lovers

THE DIFFERENT FLAVOURS OF VIETNAMESE FOOD | Vietnamese Food Lovers


Vietnamese Food Lovers

Exploring Vietnam’s culinary scene from north to south is like tasting several countries for the price of one. Its long, slender and unique geography plays an important role in its cuisine because of how the climate affects the availability of certain food and spices within each region. Travelling from northern Vietnam, through its central belly and down to its southern tail you will see not only different ingredients being used but varying styles and approaches to food and its preparation. North The food in Vietnam’s northern region is often influenced by tradition. When Vietnamese ancestors settled in the northern deltas, there was a large amount of importance placed on food and clothing among the community. Hung Kings, for example, would hold cooking contests for simple foods like steamed rice and rice cakes. Such traditions can still be seen today, with families using strict cooking methods as well as specific ingredients and food pairings to make the perfect dish. Being located so close to the border of China, Chinese influences can be spotted within Vietnam’s mountainous provinces west of the Red River Valley. However, the northern delta does also make use of native ingredients like fish sauce and shrimp paste to show

Germany Travel Tips

by Spencer Spellman @ TripIt Blog

It’s officially the start of fall—and the start of fall means one of the largest international events in the world, Oktoberfest. Kicking off in mid-September, Oktoberfest’s headlining event is in Munich, considered the world’s largest fair. However, other Oktoberfest celebrations take place throughout Germany, and beyond. So be it your first Oktoberfest, or planning a future trip to Germany, check out a few of my Germany travel tips below.   Travel with cash. If you’ve never been to Germany, then you may be surprised to discover how dependent it is on cash transactions. You aren’t going to be swiping your card or using Apple Pay like you may have in other European countries. But unless you have a bank that doesn’t charge fees or inflated rates, I’d recommend just getting cash out of a bank ATM upon arriving to Germany. However, don’t just carry all of that cash around your entire trip. Take advantage of your hotel room’s safe-deposit box (if it has one).   Tip 5 – 10 percent. Tipping in Europe isn’t like it is in America. A 15 – 20 percent tip, for example, is exorbitant. And Germany is no exception. Tipping is expected, but 5 – ...
