The best food of study abroad!

As I continually tell anyone who will still listen to me ramble on about my study abroad experience, one of my favorite parts of country-hopping around Europe was the chance to try some of the regional cuisine. I’ll focus on French food in its own post, because I had so much more time to explore different dishes, so this post will show the delicious meals that stuck with in during my travels to Spain, England, Germany, Austria, Italy, Czech Republic, and Hungary. Bon appetit!

England: Fish and chips

England is known for a lot of things: rainy weather, the Royal Family, accents, rainy weather…but food is not generally one of them. However, an English specialty is (fried) fish and chips (French fries for the Americans), and as I’m never one to pass up trying local cuisine, my friend Katie and I headed to Garfunkel’s Restaurant in Trafalgar Square. It had the appeal of a diner and the fish and chips dish that we shared really made me appreciate that English classic!

Christmas in Europe

I am very excited to be writing that after 4 months I`ll be seeing my family! My family will be spending Christmas vacation here in France with me: we`ll spend Christmas itself here in Montpellier, where I`ll show them my stomping grounds and take them on some of my favorite day trips: Aigues-Mortes, St Guilhem le Desert, and the Pont du Gard. After Christmas we`ll pack up and head to Barcelona- stopping at Figueras, Girona, Perpignan, and Carcassonne along the way! I cannot wait! Stay tuned, and Merry Christmas!
