Travel and Food, I was really interested in last night's Piers Morgan interview with Anthony Bourdain about Bourdain's new CNN show "Parts Unknown".
What I was shocked to hear is the amount of Americans who are without a Passport; according to Bourdain, only 30% of Americans own Passports as compared to 60% of the rest of the developed world.
Shame on us America and no wonder we are regraded as ignorant and narrow-minded in other parts of the world!
Get a Passport, chart a path to discovery and go see and taste the world! and...take your kids with you!
Jacob has had his passport since he was 6 months old and I will guess that at 8, has been to more countries than the average American adult.
Not to mention, can probably give Bourdain a run for his money when it comes to eating crazy unusual food...can you say Barnacles!?
As for Bourdain, it has been nearly one full year since chef/author/badass Anthony Bourdain announced he'd be leaving his successful Travel Channel show "No Reservations" for a totally new series on CNN. Well that series is Parts Unknown and it premiers on CNN this upcoming Sunday night, April 14, at 9pm EST/8pm CST.
Unlike "No Reservations." the new show will branch out from eating 24/7 to include sampling the destination and culture of countries previously out of reach or out of budget for Boudain.
