You land in Iceland off a red eye. The sun is barely awake. It’s January and all you can see out the plane window is baron white tundra. The ambian and shot of merlot is still running through your system but you muster the energy to grab your carry on bag and make it off the airplane. Ninety minutes later you sit in front of a plate of waffles the size of your head. This IS how most visits to iceland starts. Sans waffles. Let’s change that. On your next Iceland air stopover ticket head straight to Mokka Kaffi for waffles and super strong coffee. Everything in Reykjavik is heated by steam which makes your coffee temperature not only perfectly hot but alternatively brewed. Sip and dig in. This hearty start to a 20-hours of sun light day will be much needed to get you through any power plant tours, random three legged dog visits, icelandic horse riding, geyser exploration, runtur and side of the road crashes. Believe.

Just want to send a quick post. I have been traveling a bunch, what else is new, and I was in a hotel in Texas for breakfast before heading to work. I ordered an omelet at the omelet station. Before he was finished making my western omelet I noticed he had a waffle iron. The last homemade waffle I had was on the ship. They always made perfectly round and crispy waffles. With that in mind, I ended up ordering one. When he put it on my plate I couldn’t believe the shape. Only in Texas! Oh and yes, they go big in Texas, I could only finish southern Texas.
I wish he put the waffle on my plate so Texas was facing the right way.Continue reading...

…. Not that I am on a diet but I typically will not eat like this all at once. It was the southerners and my last night in Barcelona. The night before be had a massive dinner in Barcelona (post coming soon) and I think it expanded our stomachs creating this void that needed to be filled. What else but to fill that void with food that really tastes good but is really bad for you. We didn’t want to have a sit down dinner but to walk around and sample food here and there.Continue reading...

Kobe Japan was an embarkation day for me on the ship, which means I work right in the middle of the day. We were fortunate to be leaving late enough for me to slip out and grab some dinner. I was on the hunt for some Japanese food. I took the train to the first main stop, got off, and looked for the first restaurant. That was not the easiest thing. However, after walking through a couple ally’s and a building I passed by this little hidden shop called Yawara that had a plastic display of their food outside. My eye was caught on this giant sushi roll. I had to go in and find out more….Continue reading...

Belgium waffles are widely known across America and probably the world. On my last cruise I had one day in Belgium and I was not going to miss the opportunity to have Belgium Waffles in Belgium. We set out in a nice size crew looking for a waffle house for some breakfast. There seemed to be nothing of the sort in Belgium…Continue reading...
