Food That I loved In The US And Do You Really Need A Holiday After A Holiday?

Listen to the podcast here.

I’ve just come back from the states, actually just on Sunday, when I was supposed to release an episode. I thought I’d release this little episode just to give you a taste of what I ate in the US and what I am going to do in Bali. The US was great and always feel a bit sad leaving a place that I like so much. It was my first time to Miami and I didn’t really like it too much, South Beach is where I stayed and it was a bad move on my part as it’s full of posers and the type of people that I’d never be seen dead with. New York was very cool, I ate some great food there and enjoyed Brooklyn for the first time. Los Angeles is my favourite city in the US for many reasons and reasons I’m not gonna list it now. Also, went to San Diego, which was great as Chris from Yellow Productions drove us around, one day around Orange County and the other day around San Diego. My wife and I also drove all the way down to Key West from South Beach. Key West is awesome. I love it. The drive was very nice also.

And now I have my Bali trip coming up and I’m doing this holiday to test the theory that; Is having a holiday after a holiday a good thing or not needed, because you always hear of people that have had busy holiday’s like I have, sightseeing and walking many many kilometres/miles each day. My America trip was full on and we did 14 to 15kms per day of walking, so about 15,000 steps on average. All that fatty food I ate and I didn’t put on a kilogram. In Bali, I’ll be relaxing by a pool with my brothers and my sister-in-law and my wife Mandy, and just drinking a lot so I think in the 10 days that I’ll be in Indonesia I may put on more weight than what I did in the US.

In America I really enjoyed a host of great food. I went to some pretty well known food establishments. I’m listing the places that made an impact on me, positive or negative. Here’s my take on the food I ate in USA.
