Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations Returns Monday July 7th

Frequent readers of Travel Betty don’t need reminding how much I love No Reservations and its cantankerous host, Anthony Bourdain. Heck, even people who just read this post and the last one I posted will kind of get the gist. 

But why?

Well, Anthony isn’t your typical perky bland travel host pointing out obvious choices and trying to make foreign travel look sanitized for your protection.

He gets grouchy (Jamaican spelunking episode). He takes risks (Icelandic picnic, anyone?). And he will literally put any ol’ shit in his mouth (Namibian oh-so-slightly-fire-roasted pig sphincter).

That last one Travel Boyfriend and I STILL reference. Our most recent exchange during an exceptionally delicious tapas dinner in Spain three weeks ago:

Travel Betty: Mmmmm, life is good. To think there are people right now eating wild boar anus.

Travel Boyfriend: Or Denny’s.

But now it’s a whole new season! Bourdain is off to Travel Betty favorites like Egypt (exotic locale of my and TB’s engagement!), Spain, and slow-paced, soul-lifting Laos.

He’ll also be traveling to some Travel Betty dream-abouts like Tokyo and Uruguay (the latter hopefully included in our Buenos Aires honeymoon this fall).

Columbia and Saudi Arabia represent too. 

My only beef? Why still no San Francisco, Tony? C’mon, let me take you to Burma Superstar!

So, if you’re like me and need a quick hit of snark before the long holiday weekend, take a look at this sneak preview clip of the new season. Hopefully it’ll hold you over until Monday.
