Prompt: Some people eat to live, while others live to eat. What about you? How far would you travel for the best meal of your life?
Passports out and Utensils ready! In no particular order…
1. Hogwarts – The Chosen Meal
I can picture it now: taking a seat next to my fellow Ravenclaws, making quick friends with Luna (her quirkiness = hello, awesome friendship), and stuffing my face with every kind of delectable dish and treat imaginable, finally washing it all down with a cold goblet of pumpkin juice. Mmm.
2. Scotland – A Meal with the Queen
If we’re going to talk about Hogwarts, then we’ve absolutely got to talk about J.K. Rowling. I picture it as a low-key casual lunch: fragrant teas, light sandwiches, and conversation that sways from writing tips to must-see sights in the UK, with some Harry Potter puns thrown in there because everyone knows that you can’t sit at the cool table unless you’ve got a Harry Potter pun up your sleeve.
3. Seoul – A Meal with A Bang
This one is strictly for my inner Big Bang fangirl who daydreams about hanging out with her favorite band of all time. (Don’t judge! You do it too! Right?) The meal would be classy but not overly expensive, some selfies would be taken, and I’d let them know how important their music has been to me over the years.
We’d part at the end of the meal with a toast to music, friendship, and life. I’d get some farewell hugs from the members while my inner fangirl hyperventilates from happiness.
4. The Shire – One Homely Meal to Rule Them All
The walls would shake with exuberant laughter, the table would be piled high with hearty, colorful dishes, and the flasks would be filled to the brim with cold beer (or juice for some of us non-alcoholic folks). And the occasion? Not a birthday or a wedding, just friends and family making time for good food, exaggerated stories, and memories to last a lifetime.
