Eating and Traveling

As with most things, the best example of a particular food is a combination of many things: The ingredients, the preparation, the environment...  Being in a particular place, and particularly being on vacation, can have a huge impact on the ability to enjoy your food and drinks.  Many times I've heard from people who immensely enjoyed a bottle of wine while traveling only to find it just wasn't the same when they got home.  And this is just the environment.  Enjoying a good drink and good conversation with a friend can significantly impact the enjoyment of the drink as well.

My favorite cappuccino was, naturally, in Rome.  It wasn't the $18 cappuccino I had in Venice, though the environment was pulling REALLY hard for it to take the top position.  Everything just came together at the Daphne Inn in Rome.  And with a cappuccino like this, you know it's going to be good.
It's a fairly simple thing...  coffee, water, milk, maybe a dash of cocoa.  But bring it all together properly and it can create an incredibly memorable experience.
