Food Tourism: Who Wants In?

Food tourism, or as others refer to it, culinary tourism, is looking at your love of food as the main reason to travel.  It is going further than just your neighborhood or the nearest mall to find good food. How can I be a food tourist? To some people, getting to know the food from different places is then getting to know the people and their culture. And be honest, you know you want to do this.  So while the world is full of food tourists out there, keep in mind that it’s never too late to start. If you haven’t started one yet (which I highly doubt), then it’s best to make a bucket list.  The first thing to ask yourself is “where do you find your favorite food?”   It is important to start yourself with something you’ll surely love.  That way, you’ll know that you made the right decision venturing into something new. For example, you love pasta.  But the only times you’ve had pasta are when you go to a local restaurant …

Small Plane Makes Emergency Landing in the Middle of a Highway

This ought to cheer you up.  Last Thursday, a small plane needed to make an emergency landing in the middle of traffic in Quebec City, Canada.  Yes, you read that right–in the middle of a motorway.  A driver’s dashcam caught the incident on video as the Piper PA-28 Cherokee touched down between cars around 10:30 a.m., while traffic slowed behind it.  Watch the video here: It was reported that before the pilot made the emergency landing on the highway a few kilometers south of the Jean-Lesage International Airport, he first called the Quebec City fire department to get permission to do so.  Bill Noonan, the fire department spokesperson said that the plane had already landed when the emergency personnel got to site. Quebec City police later on confirmed that there was a mechanical problem with the plane that forced the pilot to make the emergency landing. Luckily, no one was injured during the incident.  But traffic was stopped for less than an hour after the landing as the plane got safely off the highway. Check …

[IN PHOTOS] Recent Ultra Rare Sighting of Bird Native to the Philippines

It’s the metallic lilac and orange tone with bright blue spots of the South Philippine Dwarf Kingfisher that makes this ultra rare bird ultra attractive. The South Philippine Dwarf Kingfisher The South Philippine Dwarf Kingfisher, or Ceyx mindanesis, was described to be the tiniest species of forest kingfishers in 1890 during the Steere Expedition. As its name suggests, it is found in Mindanao and Basilan–found in the southern islands of the Philippines. It makes a “high-pitched, insect-like, and almost inaudible zeeep,” but scientists have very rarely seen the creature as it perches very quietly on trees and because its beautiful colors help the bird hide from ‘suspecting’ human eyes. The Recent Ultra Rare Sighting In a recent walk by a team from the Robert S. Kennedy Philippine Bird Conservancy, South Philippine Dwarf Kingfisher was spotted, and photographs were taken, for the first time. The team led by the conservancy’s director, Miguel David de Leon, have been attempting to study and document the nesting, feeding, and breeding behaviors of the rare bird for ten years now. And …

Here’s Why Glamping is the Way to Go

Glamping is the easy combination of the two words that define it—glamorous camping. And it is what it is; it is a modern version of traditional camping, but with less hassle. With glamping, you get to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, which is definitely good for the brain. Spending time outdoors also boosts your mood and improves your health. In addition to this, here are more reasons why glamping is good for you: #1 It’s relaxing This is the main difference between traditional camping and glamping. When you go glamping, you can sleep on a real bed—far more comfortable than sleeping on the ground, asking your body to follow the shape of your tent. On top of this, let’s not forget about real bathrooms. Though some might say that it’s not a big deal, most people would prefer to do their business in actual bathrooms. For most people, the less than ideal setup of a camper’s bathroom is a turn off and is the reason why they dislike the idea of camping. Finally, a big plus …

Kawa Hot Baths Are Hot Right Now

It’s almost summer and Kawa Hot Baths will only make this season hotter! Locally translated, “kawa” refers to a large flat cooking pan that slightly resembles a wok. Kawa Hot Baths are tourist attractions found in the Philippines, where you, as the name implies, bathe in a kawa. And yes, that’s while the kawa sits on fire. How hot is hot? Taking kawa hot baths are like taking a dip in hot springs–you need to make sure that your body is ready for it. Because the heating mechanism is through direct contact with fire, the temperature will rise gradually. Ideally, the water should be near as warm as our normal body temperature, that’s 37 degrees Celsius. But the range is typically from 36 to 40 degrees Celsius. And just like our regular baths, we need to let our body gently get a feel of the water first before quickly jumping into it. Why get into the trend? Aside from taking those nice, perfectly instagrammable photos, getting into a kawa hot bath gives additional benefits. It …
