10 Countries in 10 Days: A Tribute to Anthony Bourdain

Food. Adventure. People.

Anthony Bourdain lived his life valuing these things more than anything else. The fearless and humble nature of his personality inspired audiences all over the world. This, in turn, taught so many people an incredibly important life lesson, which is to try to experience new things, places and people as much as you can in your life. Because ultimately life is about connecting with other people by seeing their world and eating their food. Writer Julieanne Smolinski may have summed him up best: “Anthony Bourdain tried to show TV viewers how people who weren’t anything like us were just like us. He viewed humanity with curiosity, compassion, humility, and humor.”
