This would be my dream job. Would be ideal to be someone who gets paid to travel to new places and to eat the local cuisine of that location.
I am highly inspired by the book EAT PRAY LOVE. She talks about food in a manner you can taste it. The aroma of food wafts through her book – be it some lasange she is eating or the plain simple aromatic Indian food she is trying at the ashrams she stay, heck you can almost taste the wine she is sipping. That is the kind of writing i want to do. Actually taste and feel the food, the air in the place that i visit, the vibe of the people around me and then write about it – with feeling.
My best writing is when i write about food, possibly because it connect me to my senses – i remember in detail the texture, the aroma and the taste of the food i ate – even ages back and i can beautifully write about it. And to have someone pay you good solid money to do this – that is just the icing on the cake. I would use all that money to travel some more, to eat some more and maybe exercise (a little) 😉
