Here’s an excerpt from the white paper.
The Foodie – If you fit in The Foodie category you probably hate chain restaurants and
are willing to try anything new. You get a thrill out of the spiciest peppers and strangest
flavor combinations, and want to travel the world with help from your taste buds. If you
have a passion for eating and love trying new dining experiences grab your fork and
spoon and check out these four food traveling experts, they have eaten it all!

from taking his advice; Anthony has the expertise to help you experience all of
the wonderful sights, smells and delicious tastes of your next destination.
