How to Travel Like Anthony Bourdain

Do not miss out on one of the best parts of studying abroad, trying new Food!


Anthony Bourdain; chef, world traveler, and food extraordinaire once said that “food is everything we are. It's an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma.” I couldn't agree more. I think that one of the best ways to explore a new culture is by trying new foods. No matter where you are in the world, the food will always tell a lot about the history of the region and the people who live there. If you limit yourself to the places that you may be familiar with like American food chains, you will not be be able to fully immerse yourself in the new culture.

    Try broadening your options and that includes small food vendors as well. Worried you might get food poisoning? Observe where locals go, or even better, ask the locals which ones they trust. This will be a good way of spotting a good meal and also connecting with new people.You’ll be surprise to see how people are incredibly willing to give their suggestions on their favorite places to eat.  

    The greatest part about traveling is that the food you try may be an ordinary meal, and most likely cheap option for locals. However, for you, it will be a completely new experience that won’t break your budget. If you are not already convinced to try new foods when you travel, then do it out of respect.  One of the most effective ways to quickly show respect for a culture is by enjoying their food.  So make sure whether you’re in the U.K., China, or Chile, always try new foods.  Enjoy, and Eat Up!!!

My Tragic Mistake While Studying Abroad

Studying Abroad next semester? Great! I can speak from personal experience that when I studied abroad, my biggest mistake was packing way too much stuff. I didn’t know where to keep the things I didn’t want to take, and it was too much to leave at my friends’ house. I ended up taking way too much stuff with me. Like many of my friends did, when we wanted to take a weekend trip to Oktoberfest or extend our trip in Barcelona and Ibiza, we had to figure out how to take all of our luggage and where to keep it safe.  

That semester abroad I spent much of my money on excessive baggage fees that I could’ve spent on souvenirs and croissants. I knew there had to be a better way!  And then I found STORGANIZE!  See, Storganize is not your average storage company, unlike other storage companies, they understand that for students it needs to be easy and affordable.

Storganize gets that a lot of students don't need a full storage unit for their stuff, but instead might need to store just a few items.  Storganize gets that a lot of students don't own a large truck to go drop off and pick up their stuff in storage.  Storganize knows the needs of students, that's why at Storganize they charge reasonable prices, have a wide selection of programs to store your stuff including an item program, and they pickup and drop off your stuff when you need it.  That's why I tell all my friends to check out how Storganize can help them keep their stuff safe while they “study” abroad.
