Travel around the World $20
Imagine visiting Tuscany, being part of the colour of a Mexican fiesta, or taking a trip around Asia. Worldly travel may be on hold for now, but we don’t need a plane to celebrate the culinary delights of our world. We will take the train or public transport to a destination to devour the delicacies of another country. We won’t need to pack our bags and go far, with the array on offer locally, but we will need to learn how to get there and what part of the world we will visit.
