Here, I would be telling you about the best destinations for food lovers, so if you love some good food tours, this one’s for you. 

We would ride from Africa down to deep into Europe.

I am starting with Ethiopia because nothing beats a bowl of sweet African goodness with a fusion of taste and flavours.   


Ethiopia is one of the best countries to enjoy the beauty of African food. Their food has culture and it is one of the most unique and delicious cuisines you would ever taste. Just so you know, Ethiopian dishes are not only eaten, they are experienced too and are so amazing 

The food is shared in large woven baskets which encourage communal spirit while eating. You also use your hand to eat most Ethiopian dishes which might be messy but that is definitely the most perfect way to enjoy the meal. As they say, you don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.

If you need a place to bond with close friends and family over food, Ethiopia is a great destination for you. 

Amazingly, Ethiopian dishes are budget and vegan friendly
