One of the greatest things in our lives, and certainly a major contributor to any great vacation, is food, glorious food! Did you know that Rennies Travel is the only Travel Agency that showcases travel experiences for the senses and you can actually find and choose fabulous holiday packages based on the sense that you most want to thrill?
Yes, it’s absolutely true and although we obviously cater to all the senses we thought we would start this series with the delicious destinations that tickle the taste buds – and more! Why do we say, “and more”? Well, because along with taste buds go arousing aromas that enhance the sense of smell, so yes, taste and smell go very much together.
Taste and smell destinations
When on vacation, culinary experiences are a wonderful way to engage the sense of taste, allowing you to sample the unique flavours and spices of the culture and cuisine of the destination you visit. Wine, whiskey and gin tastings as well as experiencing the exotic cocktails of the region can also engage the sense of taste.
Like a horse and carriage, taste and smell are inextricably linked so the sense of smell too is enhanced through culinary experiences, like trying local cuisine, visiting markets, and participating in cooking classes. Additionally, to heighten the sense of smell even more, travellers can explore fragrant gardens and attend events like flower festivals.
Some tasty destination packages
Right now we are offering a selection of destinations that offer everything your heart could desire, but where taste and smell are particularly well catered for. Let’s take a look at two of these packages available right now…
