Traveller's Tales: One Step Closer to Grasshoppers

February 15, 2017 - 1:00pm Updated: April 11, 2017 - 1:01pm

Entomophagy is the term coined for eating insects. All over the world, people eat various species of bugs from larva to grasshoppers. It’s a concept that both terrifies and fascinates me, especially considering that back in 2013, when I took my first solo trip, it is fair to say I was afraid of food. I visited cities and countries known for their food; Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, the list goes on. Although I dabbled in new experiences, my go-to restaurant was McDonald's.
