Food plays an instrumental part in my travel experience and I have many fond memories of the delightful meals eaten on my trips. When I was in Seychelles a few years ago, I couldn’t stop eating breadfruit (it looks like a jackfruit).
A staple there, breadfruit is served in many ways, whether you want it in a beautifully spiced curry or a mouthwatering dessert. I would plan a special trip back to Seychelles to sample more breadfruit dishes – that’s how delicious it is.
When I was in Mozambique a year later, their fresh seafood braai was a highlight of my time there. It takes me back to calm boat rides, epic dune sand-boarding, sunset kayaking, and lazy afternoons on the hammock, with the sound of the ocean not so far away. Not to mention the coconut cake I indulged in at Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort, the pad thai I devoured at a hotel restaurant in Thailand, and a traditional meal in a hut, in Lesotho.
