The author, host, and chef Anthony Bourdain reckons he's been away from home for about 250 days a year, for the past decade. If you're familiar with his adventure food and travel properties like The Getaway and No Reservations, you can see how it happens. Esquire.com figured that with all that experience, Bourdain might have some solid tips for travel, and they've shared his tips for everything from what to wear, to what to pack, to whether to eat or drink on the plane, and then what to do once you've arrived in a new place.
There's actually a surprising number of tips here. I especially like the perfect travel shoes (Clarks Desert Boots) and his interesting tip to get the best recommendations from locals...by claiming you've had the best _____, and eliciting their critical remarks and suggestions. Don't know if I have the guts to do it, but I bet it works.
