Dear Milan to Vienna

Where, you ask, will I find myself whisked off to in the course of a year? I’ll give you a clue:


Give up? Well, if you guessed a trek from Milan, Italy to Vienna, Austria, you’re absolutely right!

First off, I just want it known how thankful I am. Traveling is an opportunity that only appears so often, and it’s a true blessing and treat to adventure with esteemed professors and fellow courageous classmates. No one will find a luckier person in the world than myself.

It’s premature, so bear with me, but I am so jazzed about this trip that I want get started on some considerations now. For me, and for Dear Food, that means this:

– What are the foods in Italy, Germany, and Austria that I absolutely HAVE to try?
– What kinds of foods should I maybe stay away from?
– What are some places, specifically, you all can think of that I have to visit for their cuisine?
– Nightlife or daytime – which is best for the food scene?
– Any and all tips and tricks regarding food?

Again, trip doesn’t leave until May of 2016, but I want to spend the next year hopefully garnering some exciting opinions from all of our beloved readers. Comment on our blog, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, the works!



The two great loves of my life are the movies and food; you can't take those away from me. Growing up in Oregon, where the hammering rain can't help but lead you inside great restaurants and venues, I've picked up a fine appreciation for these pieces of beauty and art, and how to give and get those along life's way. Through a life of pictures and dishes, my only wish is to be able to share with any and all my insights, misadventures, and fortunes.
