Buffets are like marmite (and you can get that too) so the prospect of no buffets is just another thing to pile on our COVID tray.
First off, a history question? Who introduced the buffet?
Padova in north-west Italy actually.
I discovered this on a trip to the Veneto region… https://www.google.ie/amp/s/jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/04/11/padova-city-of-frescoes/amp/.
Boney’s Italian adventure
Napoleon, it transpires, was responsible for the introduction of the buffet when he held parties for his pals in the Italian grand casas.
Well you don’t think he got that girth from croissants do you? Visit http://www.turismopadova.it/en/basic-page/padua-24-or-48-hours.
Here’s where I’ve stood in line for my food asking for more. And there’s always more!
Carry on Cruising
Cruising: And one of the draws of a cruise for many is their food.
And you can eat around the world on a cruise, and go back and do it all over again!
Particularly when the food-mad Italians are around!!!
Of course where you go on your cruise can inform your choice of foods.
And on the Celebrity Cruise Edge https://www.celebritycruises.ie/onboard/our-ships/celebrity-edge/ maiden voyage I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out To Here from Florida to the Bahamas they like to spice it up.
If you want though a taste of home then Royal Caribbean are the cruise for you.
When you can visit an authentic British Fish and Chip Shop.
Authentic that is for being on the top deck with a cocktail in hand https://www.royalcaribbean.com and A Royal Party and https://www.google.ie/amp/s/jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2020/03/24/messi-around-on-the-water/amp/.
Barbados: And seeing we’re talking about the Caribbean (and aren’t we always?) then a Caribbean buffet always has something special?
Dresden: And for Germans, eccentrics that they are, that means doing things differently.
And the Saxons in Dresden Dresden’s renaissance https://www.dresden.de/en/tourism/tourism.php at the German Travel Mart https://www.germany.travel/en/trade/gtm-germany-travel-mart/gtm/gtm_10.html put out all their meats at one side of the room and the veg at the other.
Guess which one I went for!
America’s a rollercoaster
Orlando: You’ll pay for it if you were overdoing the Hurricanes at Pat O’Brien’s https://www.universalorlando.com/web/en/us/things-to-do/dining/pat-o-briens.
Because in American hotels bigger is better.
And there will always be a chef waiting with a frying pan offering an anything you want omelette.
As well as the plethora of sweet treats.
But remember you have theme parks of loop the loops awaiting you.
And believe me you don’t want to make the Hulk angry. You won’t like him when he’s angry.
MEET YOU AT THE BUFFET- SOME TIME
