editor’s note

With each bite we take a journey. Taste, perhaps more than any other sensation, is our invitation to voyage, our most nourishing entrée to global engagement. As hungry travelers know, food is an excellent guide and curiosity is all that’s required to inspire an itinerary that can change how we explore the world. In this issue, we tour some of the planet’s most delicious destinations, from Sonoma to Manila to Colombia, to savor the intermingling of taste and place. Our feast features five key flavors—savory, sour, sweet, salty, and bitter—and yummy revelation. At National Geographic, we think of travel not as a peripheral experience but as a primary tool for exchange. When we allow food to guide our journeys, we risk a portion of control for the rewards of discovery. These…

american milestone

Route 66 cruises into its 90th year this November, and its future looks as bright as its neon past. Signs of a Route 66 resurgence include California’s new Mojave Trails National Monument, which protects more than 105 miles of what, in The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck called the mother road. Restorations, such as the Boots Court project in Carthage, Missouri, and Albuquerque’s El Vado Auto Court Motel, which transforms into a multiuse space in 2017, are taking place along its 2,400 miles, from Chicago to Santa Monica. Eighty-five percent of the original Route 66, which was first commissioned in 1926, is still drivable. Small businesses along the way, including Tee Pee Curios in Tucumcari, New Mexico, and the L Motel in Flagstaff, Arizona, still look as they did in their…

cutting-edge vienna

GRAND FERDINAND HOTEL ELEGANT BUT NOT STUFFY The challenge: Transform a stark, 1950s office building into a luxury hotel on Vienna’s elegant Ringstrasse. The Grand Ferdinand succeeds by embracing the building’s clean lines, while adding Viennese touches such as oversize crystal chandeliers and the type of hand-painted floor tiles you’d find in a well-to-do Viennese apartment. The result: unstuffy opulence that fuses mid-century simplicity and Austro-Hungarian finery. From $200. grandferdinand.com WIENER GÄSTE ZIMMER SLEEP IN A FACTORY Working the late shift isn’t such a bad idea at this family-run factory that also offers five guest rooms on an upper floor. The company produces small-batch vinegars, cooking oils, and more. Guests learn about the process that turns fruits and grains into sought-after elixirs, and can sign on for a city tour of craft-based factories and markets.…

batter up in belgium

BRUSSELS The Brussels waffle, which debuted at the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair, is the forefather of America’s Belgian waffl e. But they aren’t the same—the Belgium capital’s is more of a snack, often covered in strawberries and whipped cream or chocolate. The yeast version (America’s is yeast free) is available at any waffle stand but is best fresh off the iron at 187-year-old Maison Dandoy on Rue au Beurre—Butter Street. LIÈGE East of Brussels, in Belgium’s Wallonia region, waffles lose the square shape to become an amorphous pressed-dough delight called the “Liège waffl e.” The recipe, also yeast-based, is infused with pearl sugar that forms a crispy caramelized coating in the waffl e iron. Pollux, a café off the Place de la Cathédrale, melts a chocolate bar right into the batter,…
