Today we arrive in Virginia, and like many of the places we’ve visited so far on this tour it’s the first time for all of us (I’M SORRY!!!), and we can’t wait to explore!
However, there is something slightly different about this visit, a brand new experience for us (ok, I’m going to stop now).
Not only have we had recommendations from long-standing SORTEDfood community members, but also the locals from Virginia have got involved and actually campaigned for us to come to their state… Have a look at this screen grab of tweets we received a few weeks back:
How amazing is that?!
It was pretty difficult to ignore all of that, so we got in touch with Visit Virginia, the tourist board who were leading the campaign, and started a conversation with them.
It turns out that they love Virginia (who knew?) and the concept of Lost and Hungry so much that they just want to show off what their state has to offer to us and the whole of the SORTEDfood community! The end result is they have recommended a 3 day itinerary for us to take in some of the best food and drink experiences from the region, including a place for a meet up!
This is completely new ground for us, and a whole new chapter of the Lost and Hungry story! This journey started in L.A. with lots of restaurant recommendations, we moved on to exploring farms, we’ve been invited into people’s homes to sample proper home cooking, and now we have States campaigning for SORTEDfood to come and visit… That’s crazy!!
The best thing is, this is all down to you and the conversations we have together. We never thought Lost and Hungry could breed this sort of passion, but you have proved time and time again how amazing you can be!!
As well as an incredible and packed itinerary, we also got a TONNE of great recommendations from Sunday’s FridgeCam for what to eat whilst we’re in Virginia, so we can’t wait too explore those too!
So, ready or not Virginia… HERE WE COME!!!
