Travel Betty Finally Confesses: Obsessed With Pork

Buying a plane ticket to Bali in order to eat coconut-milk-swabbed pork was only the beginning.

Hello, my name is Travel Betty and I am addicted to pork

Two weekends ago, I made Travel Boyfriend veer 10 miles off course from the Mapquest directions on our drive from Beaufort, NC to Raleigh in order to visit the Nahunta Pork Center. They “Offer The Country’s Largest Pork Retail Display, Stocking The Freshest Line Of Pork Products Anywhere.”

After following the big bright signs down many a deserted country sideroad, it ended up that the damn store was closed! I had TB document the occasion regardless. And as luck would have it, as soon as he put his camera to eye, the owner pulled up in his truck looking perplexed.

“She’s, um, a fan of pork,” was all Travel Boyfriend could think to say. Even that didn’t get us an invitation into the store. But if you’re ever driving near Pikeville, NC (just off of 70), and it’s not a Sunday, take the opportunity to stop in.

Hello, my name is Travel Betty and I’m addicted to pork-related travel products

Yesterday I was shopping at Cheap Thrills on Haight St. and I came across these savory little luggage tags (sadly unscented). Their uselessness notwithstanding, I had to purchase them to show my bacony ardor. Who knows, maybe these sizzling hot strips are just the thing your luggage needs to get you bumped up to first class. Stranger things have happened.

      I almost fell off my seat when the cartoon pig suggested that I wear a fanny pack…

      It’s not a suggestion, Stephanie. It’s a command!
