Countries You Need To Travel To If You Like Food!

Published

on

If you love food and you love to travel then we are sure you love going to places with awesome food! You’re a foodie who loves going to countries and try out new and exciting dishes. Don’t you? So once this lockdown is over, here are some countries you can put on your list and travel to. These countries are known for their food.

Here’s The List-

1. ITALY

Whenever there’s a discussion on the countries known for their food, Italy never misses on the list. Italian dishes are a favorite for most people. Their diets are a blend of colors that leave an unforgettable taste in the mouth. A simple pasta meal by an Italian chef will be finger-licking sweet. And it’s just not the taste that will wow you; it will be good to look at! Italian menu popular dishes include pizza, cheesy risottos, and pasta.

 

2. SPAIN

Spain has had a significant influence on some of the food countries on this list. With the Spaniards, their foods are cooked with such great passion such as the one you’d see when they’re performing the Flamenco dance. Their diets display so much color with excellent taste. They’ve made their mark in the food industry, literally. In the streets of Spain, you’ll enjoy delicious treats, and neither do the restaurants disappoint. In 2015, El Celler de Can Roca, a restaurant in Spain, was ranked top in the world out of the 50 that were competing.

3. MEXICO

Mexico is definitely a go-to country if you’re in search of delicious cuisines. Like their neighbors the USA, Mexican cuisine has its origins in the European continent with some influence from Indian and African dishes. Almost all of the delicious cuisines come from European countries that have featured on most of the top 10 countries with the best food lists. However, most have some Spanish history.

 

4. GREECE

 

We love Greek food for its zestiness. Greece is popular thanks to its rich history, and a little bit of it can be seen in the cooking. There’s no denying that it’s one of the most beautiful places to see, especially when you want a glimpse into the past world. We can best describe Greek cuisines to be picture-perfect, better than those from other food countries on the list. It’s the magic of olive oil lashings; they are among the largest exporters of olive oil. Favorites include salads, roast meat, lentil soup, dolma, and feta cheese.

 

5. CHINA

 

We highly doubt if some of the best countries for food are even close to China. There’s so much diversity in the menus, and you’ll be left in so much awe. There’s a likelihood you’ll want to debate if they are products of the same origin. The Chinese are among the few handfuls of countries that have retained most of their culture as displayed in their everyday way of life including their cuisine.

6. JAPAN

 

Like China, Japan is meticulous in everything they do include their cooking. They’ve also maintained their indigenous culture and traditions. When the rest of the world uses forks and knives, they are still using chopsticks. What’s even more interesting is that they made the rest of the world follow suit when enjoying foods from their country. You’ve probably had Sake, Ramen, Sushi, Tempura, Unagi or Sashimi – some of their favorites – and you did so with chopsticks.

Is It Safe To Visit Nuclear Disaster Sites?

Nuclear Disaster Sites

Theguardian.com

“Mankind invented the atomic bomb, but no mouse would ever construct a mousetrap.” 

-Albert Einstein

There was a time when countries and nation-states were in the rat race to acquire the monopoly over nuclear weapons. That was the time when the nuclear proliferation of these weapons was growing at an increasing rate. The weapon states and non-weapon states were at loggerheads with each other. Sooner and later, every country embarked on their individual capacity to build nuclear reactors and now if we look back, no good was achieved. The hunger games to redistribute the balance of power has led to the loss of lives and abandonment of places where once life perpetrated in the underbelly of once-safe nuclear disaster sites. Nuclear disasters occurred and left a legacy no one wanted. We earned but at what cost? Now that we are tackling with an invisible enemy ourselves, here’s a look at what these nuclear disaster sites look like today and whether it is safe to pay a visitation or not.

 

CHERNOBYL, 26 April 1986

More than 33 years ago, Chernobyl became the world’s worst nuclear disaster site. The plant crew intentionally switched off the safety systems to test the turbine.

Chernobyl has been opened to tourists and public since 2011 when the government authorities deemed it safe to visit. Given that you follow the orders of the tourist guide, you can prevent the radioactive from perpetrating your body.

The main danger is not radiation anymore, but the unsafe structures which have been deserted for 30 years, and lots of metal has been stripped away. So go around in groups, and obey the guide’s instructions.

 

FUKUSHIMA, 11 March 2011

The Dai-ichi nuclear power plant spewed radiation across dozens of towns, triggering a 10 mile evacuation zone. Following a major earthquake, a 15-metre tsunami disabled the power supply and cooling of three Fukushima Daiichi reactors, causing a nuclear accident on 11 March 2011. All three cores largely melted in the first three days.

9 years after the nuclear accident, Fukushima is expectantly opening up for Tokyo Olympic games 2020. The Japan government declares that Fukushima is under control.

 

TRINITY SITE, NEW MEXICO, 16 July 1945

One week after the establishment of White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), the world’s first atomic bomb was detonated in the north-central portion of the missile range, approximately 60 miles north of White Sands National Monument.

This site is now open to the public twice a year. It is located on the White Sands Missile Range which is an active military installation in New Mexico. The atmosphere is quite a circus with people bringing screaming kids, strollers, beer coolers, bicycles, dogs, and everything else you could think of.
