Chef, Author, and Television Host, Anthony Bourdain died on Friday, June 8, 2018. He was 61. In the coming days, I am planning on including at this blog, a tribute to Mr. Bourdain. Words have failed me in the last few days. Today, rather than publishing my words, I think publishing a few of Tony Bourdain’s words would be much more appropriate.
“If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food, it’s a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.”
“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”
