Working in the travel industry, I have an opportunity and obligation to see the world. Though most of my travels last only a day or two at a time, I manage to swig an espresso (or three) and get on with the party. Follow me as I shamelessly devour the foods of the land, (over)indulge in the local beer and wine, and discover new cities with old friends.

Walking through the streets of Seoul, I got to experience
their market culture. The streets are lined with vendors selling spices, fish,
fruits, and kitchenware. The amount of octopus in these markets was frightening
for me. I am learning to love seafood, but it’s a slow and steady process. Down
one street, a man from a bibimbap restaurant snatched an octopus (bare-handed)
from the showcase tank for us to view our potential lunch. Down another street,
a women offering a bucket of octopus tentacles whipped out scissors to cut us a
sample. The tiny piece had the texture of fresh mozzarella, at least that’s
what I was telling myself. It wasn’t bad at all!
