Have you ever thought of quitting your job, selling your earthly belongings, and chucking the rest to travel the world? Allan Karl did just that. He hopped on his motorcycle and traveled around the world. After three years and 62,000 miles of riding, through 35 countries on five continents, he returned home only to set out on another journey—to share the truths he'd uncovered and the lessons learned during his adventure around the world. Through stories, color photos, and the flavors of real, local food, Forks brings his experience to life and the world to your table: the kindness of strangers, the beauty of humanity, the colors of culture, and the powerful gift of human connection. Forks brings the world to your table: An around-the-world adventure story. A colorful photo book with more than 700 color photographs. A global cookbook with 40 signature recipes. Every photograph, story, and recipe in this book presents readers with an opportunity to witness new cultures, taste exotic flavors, or journey into dangerous and unknown territories. Every experience is an opportunity to connect with others.
