Foodie Friday intro

Have you seen that video of Winnie the Pooh sitting at a table happily dancing from left to right with a knife and fork in her hands? No? Go watch it. That’s me every time I get food.

Im sure you love food too. Maybe not as much as I do, but I mean, you need it to survive so…. you have to at least love it a bit 🙂

Since food is a huge part of our lives, it is usually an even huger – I know, that’s not really a word – part of our holidays. And holidays, well, I love those too! So I’m now going to be combining the both of them here on my blog!

There is going to be a new category on my blog called ‘Foodie Friday’, where I review restaurants/café’s/breakfast places/foodtrucks etc. – So basically anyywhere you can get food – I’ll review restaurants that are located in or near popular holiday destinations, to make it easy for you to find the best place to eat when visiting that city!

Check out the ‘score form’ explanation in this post in order to see what I will be judging the restaurants on.

These are my simple tips to not having a jetlag.
