It was nearly two weeks ago that I mentioned I would be taking a little travel breakÂ and that when I came back, I would have a little contest to announce.
The contest is a simple one: all you have to do is guess where I was. Leave your guess in the comments section and the first person to guess correctly will win a cookbook, eitherÂ one from the area of the world I just returned from (not giving it away yet!) or one of my favorite baking books – winner’s choice!
To help get you started, here are a few hints:
- It took me overÂ 9 hours by plane from Southern CaliforniaÂ to reach my final destination.
- I hiked volcanoes in the mountains, snorkled from the beach and spent a good deal of time on a boat. I also saw lots of unusual animals and took over 1,100 photos.
- Some of the foods I ate included: tropical fruits (mango, papaya, passion fruit, guanÃ¡bana and tree tomatoes), yuca, plantains, tamales, humitas, cancha and ceviche.
Those should get you started, without giving too much away. The contest will continue until someone gets it right, and I’ll add some additional clues as time goes on if need be.
Update: We have a winner!Â Thanks for playing, everyone!
