Food is an experience all of us can relate to! Often exploring foods from different cultures is a great way to get to meet the locals, understand other nations and cultures as well as enjoy really amazing tastes you could never have combined in your imagination before! The Middle East is a great place to enjoy both a special culinary experience and begin a cultural exploration journey!

Jerusalem, Israel

Jerusalem is a foodie’s paradise with countless hummus dishes, falafel, shawarma, and sabich (Israeli sandwich on a pita) to try. For fine dining, travelers can’t miss Machneyuda, which is widely regarded as the place to eat in the Holy City.

Beirut, Lebanon

Lebanese cuisine centers around whole grains, fruits, vegetables, seafood, and lean white meats, like poultry. Lebanese food incorporates fresh herbs and spices, and when red meat is used, it’s typically goat or lamb. Falafel, hummus, shawarma, fattoush (a fried bread salad), and tabbouleh (a bulgar salad) are the top dishes to try in Lebanon for an authentic taste of the local cuisine.

Do I need travel insurance?

For good or for bad, unexpected events are often part of trips, especially if flying far from home to another continent! Missed flights, lost baggage, medical expenses, and other unforeseen circumstances, can all combine to create stress and financial burdens while on your trip.

However, not all unforeseen events are negative! You might end up making some good friends along the way, which might turn your plans upside down. If you like to plan ahead though, you may find yourself having to choose between losing a lot of money from bookings or losing quality time and experiences with new people. A travel insurance policy can help reduce financial losses and give you the option to change your itinerary at any moment you wish!
