Food, Fun, and Friends
The world can be upside down. In the USA winter cold still criss crosses the country; down under in OZ (Australia) and in Kiwi - land (New Zealand) it is the end of summer. Fun with friends is the same world wide. Try new foods, read blogs on food, find food festivals to explore with your friends.
The "visual exploration of taste" can be appreciated at "Honestly Yum." Check out HonestlyYum.com for a visual food fest. You won't be sorry.
