Travel Advice

Last night at a Christmas party I was introduced to a man who had travelled to Shanghai and would, I was assured, have useful advice. “Take your own food” he warned and I rudely laughed at the image of boarding a container ship with armloads of heaping grocery bags. Evidently if you eat local in Shanghai, you may unwittingly be served some kind of eyeball dish.  Also: avoid eating salad in Paris as it once made the man quite ill.

About Saint Expedite

Retired early, then took a trip across the Pacific from Seattle by container ship. From China I stopped in Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Turkey, Greece, Italy, France, Holland, Denmark, England and Ireland before heading home to Puget Sound. This blog is an account of my travels. Write to me at
