How Far Will You Go? Five travellers who chowed down on creepy-crawlies

July 25, 2018

You've been showing us how far you'll go to win a trip for two. Whether that has meant holding creepy critters, taking deep dives or ingesting insects, we've been thrilled to see so many photos and videos of your daring, fearless, totally outrageous adventure. So thrilled, in fact, that we want to show some of our favourite shots to the world. Here are five people who chomped down on some creepy-crawlies:

From: Mary Kennedy

Taken in: Cambodia

Mary said: "I like food and to be adventurous with trying new things — except I am a vegetarian. On this trip to Cambodia, I finally got to try jackfruit and durian! And, as the picture above shows, a bug leg. We were at Skuon, and I was adventurous enough to try eating a bug. When I come back from a trip, I usually make a version of that cuisine and invite family and friends over to share in my attempted recreations."

From: Rhonda Hellard

Taken in: Cambodia

Rhonda said: "Next time: live crickets or some other live insect if that’s what the locals eat. I surprisingly enjoyed these crunchy ones in Cambodia."

Ashley said: "How far will I go to win? I'll let a slug I just found in the garden crawl up my tongue! Spur of the moment, out of the box, just do it! I've been thinking about what to do for this challenge, and as I was transplanting a fig tree I saw this guy and thought bingo! Done! That's kind of how I travel: if a place looks incredible, I book it and go!"

From: Diana Delgado

Taken in: Thailand

Diana said: "I would go as far as to eat that scorpion (I did not eat it that time)!"
