Chances are good many of you try to figure that out in each and every destination you visit. I’m no different. To figure that out in Chiang Mai, I looked no further than Jodi Ettenberg. And she happens to have a book coming out about travel foods
For those that don’t know Jodi Ettenberg, you should. I had the pleasure of spending a considerable amount of time with her while we both lived in Chiang Mai earlier this year — and, what can I say, I’m a fan. She’s just an all around amazing individual. From day one, her fascination and obsession with great food was apparent. Every night, there were a few new travelers meeting the regular crew for dinner by Mrs Pa’s Smoothies. Each one of them wanted to know, “Which food to try tonight?” Jodi had the answer. And now she’s sharing her food knowledge from all over the world (not just Chiang Mai) with you.
Here’s the trailer for the book:
For the food lovers (isn’t that everyone?), you can head over to Legal Nomads and sign up to be notified when there is more available about the food book.
Wow, I really really really want to go to Chile now. It looks gorgeous.
It doesn’t hurt that I kinda like that background song either.

I can confidently say that the vast majority of travelers don’t buy into the materialistic mindset that dominates western culture. For each and every one of you, there was an “aha”moment where you kicked the mindset to the curb for good.
For one such example, watch this video – it’s a 50 minute interview with the Founder of Charity Water that details his entire transformation from club promoter in New York to a life of giving.
What was your “aha” moment where you realized there is more to life than the materialistic lifestyles the majority of us in the Western world live?
I was fortunate enough to get to know Monica McCarthy during her extended stay in Chiang Mai a few months ago. Here’s a video she put together following her return to New York from her 3 month trip to Southeast Asia that I wanted to share.
Yea, SE Asia looks awesome, right? Add it to your list. If you haven’t been to Southeast Asia yet, what are you waiting for?
All I have to say is — sign me up for a Croatia trip.
I’ve never been to Antarctica, but “extreme” is what I think. Watch the video below for footage and more answers..
What do you think of?
Well, here’s a preview in 4 minutes..

Though I haven’t seen Pretty Lights first hand (I know the Drifting Duo has), it looks like a pretty amazing show.
