Foodie Road Trip

If you are not one who wants to travel for hours on end in a hot car hoping to catch a glimpse of the ever elusive Big 5, and your focus is more on eating than seeing something being eaten, then why not embark on your very own “Foodie Road-Trip?”

There is just one golden rule when it comes to a more food focused road trip- when you go is just as important as where you go.

We all know that you want to experience a region at the perfect moment; when ingredients are in peak season; when the scenery is at its most alluring, or when you’re least likely to be overwhelmed by hordes of tourists.

Do you really want to heap on the kilometres on your very own vehicle? Think a moment about the mileage, the tyre wear…. did you take your vehicle in for that major service or did you cut costs a bit to have something to spend on your road trip?
