Why You Should Eat in Tanzania, Get Drunk in Mallorca and Sip Tea in Kerala

There’s no better day than Friday to cozy up with some gorgeous travel stories as you wind down the week and muse over future travel possibilities.

And why not get lost in the food and culture of Tanzania? Contributor, Matt Lawyue shares a colorful story of traditional food while exploring the country’s economic contrasts from the seat of a local restaurant in Arusha, Tanzania.

Kerala may just be India’s sweetest region, from the food to the people to the countless lanscapes that mesmerize even the most jaded travelers. During a one-week journey, I discover hill stations peppered with fragrant tea and spice plantations; paddle through the colors, traditions and daily life of the backwaters; and indulge in Ayurveda treatments that use centuries-old techniques.
