The World in Burgers

It is a fact (probably) that there is no other food as universally adored as the burger. And what’s not to love? A delicious patty of succulent meat, topped with cheesy goodness and sandwiched within a lightly toasted bun. Throw in some bacon, avocado, caramelized onions, and oh my goodness, we’re drooling. If you’re not already salivating, just you wait.

Every country has “classic” burger joints where you’re able to get a burger just the way you get it at home. But, a lot of countries also have speciality burgers – adding a bit of national flair to a typical burger. These constitute a more adventurous choice for a burger connoisseur.

Australia

Australia might not seem that different to the U.S., but when it comes to burgers those Aussies live in a completely different world. Known as a “burger with the lot,” a typical Australian burger is packed with a slice of pineapple, beetroot and a fried egg. The runny yolk of the egg sinks into the bun and the sweetness of the pineapple offsets the salty beef patty. The beetroot is just there because it tastes good.

France

The French love taking foreign things and “francofying” them. They even have their own word for hashtag. So, how did they manage to turn this American staple into a French gourmet dish? Simple. Top the meat with creamy brie, caramelized onions, and a handful of rocket leaves. The flavors blend perfectly and will make you wonder how French women manage to stay so skinny with this on the menu.

Ireland

Okay so this isn’t a typical Irish burger (we don’t know if they exist), but if you find yourself in Dublin, head over to Jo Burger – a burger joint that specializes in unusual burgers.

On the menu, you will find all kinds of wonderful burger creations, but we recommend you pay particular attention to the burger that contains goat cheese and a caramelized chilli banana. It sounds all kinds of messed up, but it is the taste sensation you’ve been waiting for.

It’s easy to make delicious warm drinks at home, which allows you to flavor them to your taste, saving both money and calories

The 12 Best European Holiday Towns to Visit this Fall

The temperatures in Europe soar in August, and many businesses close their doors as workers seek breezes and cooler temperatures elsewhere. This leaves only the tourists in these larger cities, wondering where everyone went. Instead of heading to Europe in August, when most of the city has left for summer vacation, travel across the Atlantic in September and October, and visit all the cities that European holidaymakers have recently vacated. These holiday destinations are hidden gems that have mostly been overlooked by North Americans — until now.

The Most Beautiful University and College Campuses in the World

When it comes to picking a post-secondary school, there are a lot of factors that should be considered. Schools are generally assessed for the quality of their academics, as well as the various other factors that affect student life, like housing, food, athletics, and extracurriculars. One factor that many people fail to consider is the look and feel of the campus itself — after all, students will be spending at least three or four years there.
