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!

Spring break travel plans

I`m off for my longest travel adventure yet: ¨spring¨break in Prague, Budapest, and Paris! I`m taking a 24 hour bus to Prague with a friend, where we will meet up with my fabulous cousin Rhys- visiting all the way from Montreal! I`ve planned to take a day trip to the UNESCO town Kutna Hora with the famous bone church, then take a train to Budapest together. Rhys will have to leave us to go back to Canada and Alex and I will continue on to Paris! I cant believe I`ve been in France for 6 months already and havent been to Paris. Stay tuned!
