I have sourced out many of the best local travel experiences in Italy (Tuscany and Sicily based), Spain, Greece, Mexico, Cuba, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Panama, and Thailand. And just to throw in an outlier, think fresh seafood in the isles of Scotland.

Don’t forget the great opportunities for food explorations closer to home here in North America. There are great places to explore from Prince Edward Island to California and parts in between.

Look for upcoming and follow up stories about slow traveller programs in these areas.
