13 Mouthwatering Meals Worth Traveling For

13 Mouthwatering Meals Worth Traveling For

One of the best parts of traveling is sampling the local cuisine, over and over again in most cases! Not just because the memory of an unforgettable meal will transport you back to that place and time for the rest of your life, but because a meal bonds you to the people you shared it with. Maybe it was that unparalleled beef phở that you stumbled across with your travel buddy in Vietnam, or the simple but delicious meal you shared with your host family on your first night in a remote village in Zambia. It is about more than the food. So we’ve collected some of our IVHQers foodgrams to inspire you to not only eat, but travel, explore and make memories that will be with you for life!

1. Lip-smackingly good Gelato in Italy (or Portugal, as IVHQrewer Ellen found out)
