EAT MY GLOBE: HERMANO SEGUNDO GOES AROUND THE WORLD IN 400 MEALS ( or more )
Well, it finally had to happen.
After twenty years of doing the book publishing thing, I finally decided there had to be more to life.
So, I am off to see the world. I am off to "go everywhere and eat everything" or at least do that until my meagre savings run out and I end up on a street corner somewhere in rags strumming a guitar with one string and singing a plaintive but discordant version of "Bambalayo"
The trip is coming together nicely and is predicated on following up any and every invitation I get from anywhere in the world.
Even at this early stage, I have huge number of offers which, in the UK alone, include making Black pudding in Bury, Mackerel fishing off the coast of Cornwall, making whisky in The Highlands and cooking at The Blacksmiths Arms.
I am also planning trips to Japan, Russia, China, Mongolia, The US, Argentina, Mexico and Cuba before Christmas. Mind you, in 2008, that's when it really gets serious.
Given my love of all things Spanish, I want to finish my trip by walking the Camino Francaise to Santiago
Dos Hermanos will keep going as HP will no doubt keep his end up and I shall post about meals from around the globe, but I will be writing longer pieces about my trip on a dedicated website www.eatmyglobe.com ( see the link below ) I shall be out on the road from April but doing a few things in March just to get it started.
So, if you have any great ideas, please do get in touch or simply read along. It could be fun.
I look forward to hearing from you
