When traveling, each day is different. You never know what to expect, no matter how much you plan ahead. Will it rain again today? Will we get our coffee tomorrow morning? Where will we sleep in two nights? These are some common things we usually wonder about. So, in this hectic nomadic lifestyle of scenery changes, new accommodations, and different people, we’ve made ourselves a routine. We eat sandwiches every day for lunch. They’ve been quite delicious and easy on the budget as well. Plus, we can make them ahead of time and bring them along as a picnic lunch. Here are some examples of really great ways to eat a sandwich. As you read through, you’ll find these sandwiches can be enjoyed anywhere you happen to be!
Sandwich in the City: Take a “Tiger Roll” from the bakery, add toppings of your choice and enjoy in the grassy domain of almost any city in New Zealand. They love their green space here!
Volcano-wich: When climbing Rangitoto, you need to bring your own food as there are no stores or restaurants on the island. Take a seeded roll, salami and cheese and find a shady grove to lay your picnic cloth down.
The Beach SANDwich: While driving to the northern coast of New Zealand, stop at any beach along the way, take out all the toppings you have and assemble the sandwich while sitting in the sand. That way when the wind picks up, it will give your lunch a little more crunch! Nice and gritty.
Mountain Sandwich: Work up an appetite by climbing up to Ben Lomand’s Peak. Make it a big thick sandwich and add some chips and granola bars. Don’t forget plenty of water. Enjoy as you sit and stare in awe at the snow-capped mountains in the distance. Watch out for goats.
Sandwich in the Vineyard: Wander through the grapevines, or take a bike! Plop down and eat quickly before your sandwich gets rained on. Too bad we forgot the bottle of wine.
The possibilities are endless! Needless to say, a certain song always pops into our heads during lunchtime. I’m sure many of you have already guessed it.
