from Anthony Bourdain
One of the world's coolest globetrotters on ambition, being a man and, of course, the importance of travel.
Imagine if you found yourself sitting next to badass travel documentarian Anthony Bourdain at a bar. What would you do? If it were me, I'd ask him where I should go on vacation this summer and then try to shake him down for some tips on what to do (and what not to do) when I got there. Well, we're all in luck because you don't have to stalk the man's favorite watering holes to get such valuable intel. Today, he launched an immersive travel guide that supplements and expands upon episodes of his hit CNN show, Parts Unknown.
Dubbed Explore Parts Unknown, the site digs into a wide range of places Bourdain has conquered, breaking up the content geographically as well as into four main categories: Eat, Drink, Know and Go. Click on a particular city, and you're treated to clips from the show along with "Bourdain's Field Notes" and such helpful tips as local lingo to know before you go. And while there's plenty of content already on the site, new material will be published every Thursday before a new episode of Parts Unknown airs on Sunday.
This past fall, Bourdain released Appetites: A Cookbook, which boils down four decades of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a well-edited repertoire of dishes that, according to Bourdain, everyone should know how to cook.
