 Travelling! I love it, and while I've been living abroad since August, I'm starting to crave travelling somewhere. Good thing I plan to be on the road for not less than 3 months this summer! I will travel with Martin, and we will go to Washington state and Portland in May/June! I'm really looking forward to it! Then we will go home to Sweden for a short time and reload, before going to Great Britain and WWOOF! Volunteering for food and housing for about 6 weeks will be so much fun too! Until then, I wanted to share some food photos from some of my previous travels.
A portabello burger with onion rings and barbecue sauce at the Ultimate Burger in London 2006.

Amaranth pudding with vegan whipped cream on top in Split, Croatia 2009. This was the first and only time I ate amaranth, and it was lovely!

A typical meal on the train. Couscous prepared with cold water and 

One of the best things with traveling south - vegetable markets with loads of fresh and local produce.

I've learnt that you will always be able to find vegan junk food in Germany. Pictured are some hot dogs and taco cheese.

Berlin I love you! How could you not love a city that brings you vegan döner kebab and burgers at Yellow Sunshine?

Turkey 2010. Fresh bread and sun warm strawberries eaten in a park.

Falafel in Sofia, Bulgaria. We asked our couchsurfing hosts to write us a note that said "no yoghurt sauce" in Bulgarian, and when we showed it to the man at the falafel place he laughed a lot and gave us some extra falafel in a little box because he thought it was so funny.

Halva! I love love love this treat. We ate it all the time in Turkey. It's great to bring along to hikes in the sun, since it wont melt in the heat.

One of the great thing about staying with couchsurfers during your trip is that they might serve you fresh baked home made sour dough bread for breakfast.


  1. I love traveling, too. Sounds like you've been to some awesome places with equally awesome food! The photos are great--thanks for sharing. :)

  2. The amaranth pudding looks delicious and I love your story about the falafel. Now I want a little box of falafel :)

  3. Wow! I had to laugh about your food pictures from Germany. Of curse there had to be sausage ;)

    Couscous with nuts and raisins sounds like a really wonderful travel snack. I'll keep that in mind.

  4. Fun! You'll have to let me know when you'll be in Portland and if you're in need of a place to stay, I'm a CSer too!

  5. Tiffany: Yes I have! Although, most of the time I only eat bread and tomato sauce (cold and on the road) due to very limited budget!

    Tahinitoo: Yes it was awesome, everyone should get to have a little box of falafel.

    Mihl: I ate that couscous on the train between Bologna and Venice, and it was surprisingly good. Remember to bring some salt though, I didn't. The nuts helped with that, but salt would have been a pleasant addition either way.

    Andy Dufense: I will!

  6. Sigh, I definitely have wanderlust right about now, as we've been snowed in for weeks on end it seems. All of your travel eats look incredible, I wish I was always so lucky!

  7. what an awesome summer you have planned! it looks like you have a knack for finding delicious food wherever you go!
