The new Magnum Temptation has just been released and it’s pure indulgence. It’s a premium ice cream with chunks of white chocolate and brownie pieces swirled through the creamy choc centre and encased in Belgian chocolate. Even the shape is funky and the box just exudes indulgence.
What would my most indulgent fantasy be? It took me all of two nanoseconds to know that my indulgent fantasy would involve a combination of travel and food around the world. So I sat down and worked out this ultimate trip, all to be completed in “one day”.
My indulgent fantasy: Eating Around the World in One Day
I would own a super fast private jet, and would use it to travel against the world timeline, flying anti clockwise around the world so I would “gain” time due to world clocks and the position of the sun.
So here is my itinerary:
Melbourne – I would start at 7am in Melbourne and have a nice small breakfast and coffee in one of Melbourne’s many laneways, maybe at Hardware Societe for example.
Darwin – I would then fly to Darwin, where I would definitely eat a witchetty grub and climb Uluru.
Tokyo – I would fly by Tokyo for a taste of glorious charshu ramen and a visit of the hustle and bustle of Ginza. I might even buy myself some high tech piece of personal equipment.
Beijing – Beijing would be next and I know I’m having some beautiful Peking duck and wandering around the amazing grounds of the Forbidden Palace to see how my ancestors lived.
Mumbai – I have always been intrigued by the famous slums of Mumbai, so after a calming Indian tea, I would look at the poverty and community of the slums and feel so lucky to live the life I have.
Moscow – The next stop at Red Square in Moscow would give an insight into one of the most closed places in the past. This would have to include a sample of caviar and some Russian vodka, just a bit of vodka.
Cairo – A world tour wouldn’t be complete without visiting the most stunning man made wonders of the Pyramids. I would love to try some camel if it was available.
Athens – From one stunning man made wonder to another, I would visit the Acropolis and marvel at the foundations of modern society, from democracy to philosophy. I would eat some freshly grilled octopus and wash it down with some ouzo with lemon.
Paris – My next stop is a must visit, which is my favourite city of Paris. I don’t even need a nanosecond to know what I’m doing here. It would be to eat Pierre Herme macarons while at the top of the Eiffel Tower, perfection.
London – From Paris it’s only a short trip to London, where I’m definitely drinking ales and then walking through the majesty of Westminster Abbey.
Rio de Janeiro – I would fly to Rio next and go to Corcovado, to view the huge Christ statue. A bit of grilled meat would be my chosen food.
La Paz – The next city isn’t very well known, but I’d love to visit La Paz in Bolivia and see Lake Titicaca. The perfect clear lake was around since the earliest civilisations and I would sample some beef jerky while enjoying the serenity and sunset.
New York – From the serenity of La Paz, I would go to the craziness of New York. It’s night time now and I would eat a massive steak while atop the Empire State Building.
Mexico City – It is now night time and I would visit the National Museum of Anthropoloy in Mexico City and imagine all the people who had come before us.
Los Angeles – It is well and truly night time now and I would visit the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles. I would stare down on a city full of lights and imagine all the people running around filled with hopes and dreams of making it big in Tinseltown. I would have a glass of fine champagne while staring off into the night.
Honolulu – Finally, to finish off my indulgent fantasy “day”, I would sit and relax on Waikiki Beach, drink a pineapple cocktail and listen to the waves crash against the beach and slowly drift off to sleep on a hammock on the beach. And that would end my perfect “one day”.
