Although I have only been writing for Boardingarea since December 2022, I’ve greatly enjoyed sharing my culinary travel-related suggestions, favorites, and foreign language menu help for whomever is interested.
Clearly, since that time, many of my posts have tended towards involving food in some way. The way I see it, no matter where you are, you’re probably going to eat; as we need to eat, the meal might as well be something different. Besides, if one meal tastes bad, it doesn’t matter that much, for you only need to wait a few hours until the next.
On that note, this 27 April, I will be a guest speaker at the World Food Travel Association’s 100% virtual FoodTreX Global Summit! This is an annual event that involves people from a variety of backgrounds to discuss issues facing worldwide food tourism.

I don’t want to give too much away yet, but you can be sure I’m going to talk about Japanese antenna shops.
The non-profit World Food Travel Association was founded by industry veteran Mr. Erik Wolf in 2001. It was a trend-setter in culinary tourism at the time, having spearheaded events and educational programs to promote and protect indigenous food cultures and locales throughout the world.
