Sweet Food Around The World


I have the biggest sweet tooth. I am a sucker for desserts and I can admit to being a chocoholic. Naturally, I don’t stop myself from trying new sweet treats when I travel, and sometimes even photograph them. But I don’t stop at sweet; savory food takes a place in my heart as well.

Below you will find a photo series of sweet, fruity and decadent foods from across my travels, enjoy!:
