Travel Bites is a collection of anecdotal travel stories that crisscross the globe. It is the first work by The Hungry Traveller who has combined his two great life passions: travelling and eating! The Hungry Traveller has been travelling for the last fifteen years and, along the way, has experienced many different sights, tastes, and cultures. Central to his travel experiences has been the role of food. Through his unique and very personal style of storytelling, you too can share in the highs and the lows of his stories from around the world. At the end of each story is a recipe for a dish inspired by his adventure. Travel Bites will capture your imagination and curiosity; and will leave you yearning to plan your next holiday, adventure or escape!

Enjoy a couple of excerpts:

A Tale of Two Cheesesteaks
Location: New York City and Philadelphia, USA


When I am in the north-east of the USA, one of my favorite foods is a Philly Steak Sandwich (or a cheesesteak if I am in Philadelphia). Whether it is served in diners, restaurants, or street stalls, a Philly Steak Sandwich is good, simple food that is hard to beat.

The Bridge on the River Kwai
Location: Kanchanaburi, Thailand


I remember watching The Bridge on the River Kwai growing up. This classic movie is based on the novel written by Pierre Boulle, about the construction of a bridge over the River Kwai by Allied prisoners of war, as part of the “Death Railway” during World War II. There were a number of things that I always remembered from the movie as a kid. There was William Holden’s character, who escaped from the prison camp only to return as part of a commando mission to try to destroy the bridge.
