Girl Eat World ist der leckerste Reise-Account auf Instagram

Die Designerin Melissa kombiniert zwei der tollsten Dinge des Lebens: Reisen und Essen.

Wer unterwegs ist, macht in der Regel viele Fotos. Von traumhaften Kulissen. Oder von sich selbst vor traumhaften Kulissen. Die Designerin Melissa Hie hat es nicht so mit der Selbstinszenierung. Als sie 2013 auf einen Europatrip aufbrach, wollte sie nicht ständig Fremde bitten, ein Foto von ihr zu schießen.

„Ich mag Selfies nicht so sehr“, schreibt sie auf ihrem Blog, „aber ich esse die ganze Zeit, also habe ich Fotos vom Essen vor egal welcher Sehenswürdigkeit gemacht, bei der ich gerade war.“

Das erste Bild dieser Art entstand in Rom vorm Kolosseum – und kam auf Hies Facebook-Account gut an. So gut sogar, dass sie jetzt einen eigenen Instagram-Account nur mit Essen-vor-Sehenswürdigkeiten-Fotos befüllt: Girl Eat World. Inzwischen zeigt Hie auch die Fotos von anderen Reisenden. Diese Bilder machen uns das Unterwegssein besonders schmackhaft:

??? Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I'm super excited to let you know Fat Tire Paris (@FatTireParis) is giving away a FREE TRIP TO PARIS FOR TWO. This includes flights, accommodation and custom itinerary with Fat Tire tours in the magical city of love! Contest ends on 30 September. ???Click the link in my bio for info! How do I know about Fat Tire tours? ? When I went on my europe trip two years ago, looong before #GirlEatWorld was born, I booked a day tour with Fat Tire tours to see the city of Berlin on a bike. I ended up enjoying the day so much that I came back the next day and did another half day tour with them. The best way to really experience a city is on a bike! Since then, I have been recommending this tour to my friends who visit Europe. I hope one of you gets the chance to experience the tour too ? #FatTireParisGiveAway #FatTireParis #sp

Keks vor der Tower Bridge in London

Ein Häppchen vorm Galata-Turm in Istanbul

#GirlEatWorld Kandil Simidi by @sezyilmaz with a view of Istanbul on top of Galata Tower ??. Kandil Simidi is a bread ring decorated with sesame seeds which are shared with relatives and neighbor during the Islamic holy nights Kandil. There are five kandils in a year, and one that just passed by this past December 22/23 is the Mevlid Kandili – the birth of prophet Mohammad. The day is usually celebrated by a sermon, remembrance of the Prophet's life and mission, gift giving and a feast. Sounds familiar right? ? This holy night is also celebrated in Indonesia, my birth country under the name Maulid Nabi. I heard it caused quite the traffic jam with people trying to go back to their home town out of Jakarta for both Christmas and Maulid Nabi (which does not fall on the same date every year) ?

Ein Sesambrot in Athen

Ein Hello-Kitty-Donut in Tokyo

Happy Monday! Missing this Hello Kitty donut at the organized chaos of the shibuya crossing in Tokyo ???. The Shibuya "scramble" crossing is well known for people watching and a must visit while in Tokyo. When the traffic lights turn red, pedestrians would pour out from all sides and meet in the middle of the intersection. I find it very calming to watch from afar. Also, Hachiko statue is in one of the corners of this intersection! — I've been spending some time re-learning Japanese through and I love it so much! To my fellow 日本語 learners, i highly recommend checking out @iknowjp to review your kanji, listening skills and vocabularies. It makes the learning process super fun compared to using flash cards! However, this app will not teach Japanese from scratch – you have to use this in conjunction of a text book since they do not teach you grammar. I wish apps like this existed when I was learning Japanese in college! You can also learn other language like Chinese and English for SAT learners #iKnowjp

Ein Schokoladen-Biskuit in Sydney

3rd favorite #GirlEatWorld moment in 2015 – Having a dark chocolate Tim Tams at the Circular Quay in Sydney ??. I went to Australia for two weeks in May with @yhaaustralia. It was such a life changing trip! I got to meet awesome people in the city too: @nancyonathan, @jimmyeatsw0rld, Vinh and @kirra_811. Why Tim Tams? The chocolate biscuit is pretty much synonymous with Australia. There are tons of variety but my favorite is still the dark chocolate one! And also the raspberry one by Adriano Zumbo ? What's your favorite Tim Tams? Comment ?? and let me know Sydney Opera House were only opened 42 years ago, but it has today become the most recognizable symbol of Sydney. In 2007, the building was listed as UNESCO World Heritage site, describing it as great urban sculpture set in a remarkable waterscape, at the tip of a peninsula projecting into Sydney Harbour. My tip: Walk across the Harbour Bridge to see different sides of the opera house for free! #SeeAustralia #RestaurantAustralia
