Best of 2017 – Our Food and Travel Favorites

by Daryl & Mindi Hirsch @ 2foodtrippers

2017 was a busy year for the 2foodtrippers. We traveled to three continents, 13 countries and too many cities to count. Check out the food and travel experiences that were our best of 2017. We began the year 2017 without definite plans. Perhaps we could plan our calendar way in advance as some ‘type A’ people probably do, but what’s the fun in that? Sometimes, we’re just hanging around our Naples, Italy apartment and, all of a sudden, the spark of travel shoots across our brains and, on a whim, we ...

Fantastic London Markets + Where to Find Them | UK

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

Can we all just agree that shopping malls are terrible? Perhaps the 14-story monster malls in Bangkok are worth a wander, but the American style mall might as well be an inferno-less hell. All a person really needs to suffer is flickering lights, teenage hordes, and the familiar fragrance of Abercrombie cologne. Fortunate for the mall haters, merchants have started going backwards to a more traditional style of selling. In London, there are countless artisans, creatives, and food vendors that have ditched their commercial space in favor of a tiny popup stall. London markets are some of the loveliest places to explore in London. Whether you’re going for a lookie loo or a full on shopping spree, here are some of the London farmers, flower, flea, + food markets you won’t want to miss. The Very Best of the London Markets Camden Lock Market Formerly a timber yard for ship builders, the stalls and storefronts tucked away in Camden makeup Camden Lock Market. The items for sale range in quality from vintage finds to mass produced crap, but it’s the looking around part that is fun. Where: Unit 215 – 216 Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 What to Shop: Vintage clothing and […]

Vietnam's Low-tech Food System Takes Advantage of Decay

Vietnam's Low-tech Food System Takes Advantage of Decay


LOW-TECH MAGAZINE

The food system in the industrialised world is based on mass-production, global distribution, and constant refrigeration. It requires many resources and produces a lot of food waste. Aaron Vansintjan takes to the streets of Hanoi, where the Vietnamese practice a food culture based largely on fermentation. Although food spoils much faster in a tropical climate, the Vietnamese will often store it without refrigeration, and instead take advantage of controlled decay. Vietnam's decentralised food system has low energy inputs and reduced food waste, giving us a glimpse of what an alternative food system might look like. Picture: Street food in Hanoi, Vietnam. Maxime Guilbot. In a tropical climate, everything decays faster. Bread gets soft and mushy, milk spoils, the walls get...

How to Run the Economy on the Weather

by kris de decker @ LOW-TECH MAGAZINE

Before the Industrial Revolution, people adjusted their energy demand to a variable energy supply. Our global trade and transport system -- which relied on sail boats -- operated only when the wind blew, as did the mills that supplied our food and powered many manufacturing processes. The same approach could be very useful today, especially when improved by modern technology. In particular, factories and cargo transportation -- such as ships and even trains -- could be operated only when renewable energy is available. Adjusting energy demand to supply would make switching to renewable energy much more realistic than it is today. Stoneferry (detail), a painting by John Ward of Hull. Renewable Energy in Pre-Industrial Times Before the Industrial Revolution, both...

Issyk-Kul South Shore, Kyrgyzstan Experiential Travel Guide: 20 Ideas to Get Started

by Audrey Scott @ Uncornered Market

By Audrey Scott

If you travel to Kyrgyzstan, it’s almost impossible to miss Issyk-Kul, the second largest alpine lake in the world (after Bolivia’s Lake Titicaca). But Issyk-Kul is large with two long shores, each a different personality. So where to focus your effort? For many, the temptation is to take the highway along the northern shore directly […]

Only Happy When It Rains (ft. Florence) | Italy

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

When it rains in Florence, Botticelli Angel umbrellas create an impenetrable fortress between human and sky. Lines to enter the Il Duomo di Firenze are almost as impressive as the cathedral itself, and you can forget about seeing The Birth of Venus without an iPad hovering in the foreground. Happy couples get caricature sketches while those that argued over getting lost all day slug back carafes of Sangiovese wine and binge eat pizza instead. It’s no secret there’s a dense collection of Renaissance art and architecture in Florence, and apparently, people are into it.  Each year, the UNESCO World Heritage city (population 370,000) welcomes 16 million tourists, and you can really, really feel it. It’s fair to say that pretty little Florence has a tourist problem. If you imagine Florence to be like a quaint photo, you might not like the city much at all. But if you don’t mind getting off the main streets and watching the crowds from afar, you’ll find garish window displays at high-fashion retailers, quirky cocktail bars, and local markets selling plenty of divine Italian food that isn’t even pasta. Want to get beyond the top 10 and see the secrets of Florence? Here’s some street photography […]

How to Run the Economy on the Weather

by kris de decker @ LOW-TECH MAGAZINE

Before the Industrial Revolution, people adjusted their energy demand to a variable energy supply. Our global trade and transport system -- which relied on sail boats -- operated only when the wind blew, as did the mills that supplied our food and powered many manufacturing processes. The same approach could be very useful today, especially when improved by modern technology. In particular, factories and cargo transportation -- such as ships and even trains -- could be operated only when renewable energy is available. Adjusting energy demand to supply would make switching to renewable energy much more realistic than it is today. Stoneferry (detail), a painting by John Ward of Hull. Renewable Energy in Pre-Industrial Times Before the Industrial Revolution, both...
