Announcing My First Event !!

Hey Guys!!
Before I embark on my announcement, I would like to say a big thank you to all my ardent friends.....who have given me lots of encouragement by regularly visiting my blog and contributing with all feedbacks...I gathered some courage....I am confident that all of you will support me.....Thank You Pictures, Images and Photos

I have participated in many events since I started my blog 8 weeks ago, ya today my blog turns 2 months old..but I myself have never hosted any events...so I thought let's put my finger in the pie..and here I am announcing My First Event...

Joyful Eating Whilst Travelling

Reasons behind my approch for this event
We all travel a lot to holiday places all over the world and in our travels we are always discovering different foods and dishes which we never knew about and also foods that have flavours we are comfortable with at home, but taste differently made somewhere else. This could be in either Restaurants, hotels or in the food stalls on streets.. Most of the time during our travels we have found to like some particular food so much that it stays in our memories and then long after that same item is made at home and it refreshes our memories of the great times during our holiday....
I am going to include here some of the dishes I made at home after enjoying them for the first time whilst travelling..here ,here , here and here
So now my friends please share your travelling experiences and food that you have had for the first time, which may have inspired you to attempt at  home making it a family favourite.  It could be any food, drink or dessert...the choice is yours....
Your travels could have been not necessarily different countries, it can be from town to town or State to State....so guys jog your memories and if there were any particular foods you enjoyed on your holiday, please make that item again and post it in my first event..
Rules for my Event

  • Please include your holiday pic in your post....you do not have to include people in your pics..

  1. We go on vacation only in June-July when it's warm and some years in December for a short vacation. In India, my family used to pack food whenever we went somewhere. But I NEVER pack food here, I need my vacation from kitchen too! :D
    We did have few Travelling food events before, I have posted a few. So great event to start again. My blogs don't work, so nothing from me I guess unless they fix it, can't post logo either.
    Warm weather here, it will be a fun weekend. See you next week, enjoy!:)
