The Cheesy Side of Travel

How dare I call travel cheesy, right? Well, it’s not what you think! If you know me personally or have read a few of my reviews, you know that “cheesy” is purely a reference to my love of cheese fondue. One might think I’m left over from the fondue fad of the 70s, but in actuality, I just really love cheese, bread, and the combination of cheese and bread (and I have to add that I wasn’t alive for most of the 70s!) While most people collect postcards, Christmas ornaments, or various trinkets during their travels, my husband and I decided to take our love for fondue and combine it with our love for travel, creating “cheesy” memories that will last us a lifetime. So, be sure to check out my reviews for a my latest adventures in the world of cheese and I’ll continually update this post with a list of fondue restaurants we’ve visited around the world.
