Just as I try to eat whatever the locals eat, I try to drink whatever the locals drink. In Hungary, that means drinking a lot of palinka. You can find it everywhere in Budapest and probably the rest of the country. How much you drink depends on how adventurous you want to be.
You can’t go to Chile without visiting a few wineries. It’s against the law. Ok, no, not really. It’s not against the law, but it absolutely should be.
