Eat well and travel often. Travel addicts and foodies alike now have a renewed appreciation for just how much this way of life was taken for granted, pre-2020. Back when we could indulge (often) in the unrestricted freedom and spontaneity of exploring far-fetched destinations and eating our way—unashamedly—through flavours delightfully foreign to our palates.
This, too, shall pass and when the world finally opens up, our wallets and waistlines best be ready for the hedonistic adventures and indulgences that will ensue. But in the meantime, as we await that utopian herd immunity and the lifting of global travel restrictions—as well as a full return to dining freely and comfortably in our favourite restaurants—armchair travel and recipe testing definitely lift the spirits.

Topping the wanderlist for many travel-deprived souls will be a restful island escape, where time stands still, relaxation is guilt-free and the freshest fruit, spices and seafood are in abundance. Don’t forget that many tropical destinations are now accessible, so if your country is allowing travel, then you don’t have to put those island vibes on hold.
