What Did We Try At McDonald’s American Samoa?

While I rarely dine at McDonald’s, I always try to do so when visiting a new country. The main reason is to see what unique, local menu items might be available.

In the summer of 2017, the Michael W Travels family spent 5 weeks in the Pacific. We visited a bunch of island nations in the region and had a really great time. McDonald’s didn’t have locations in all of the places we visited but we did have a meal at McD’s in Fiji and Samoa. Continue reading What Did We Try At McDonald’s American Samoa?

What Did We Try At McDonald’s Samoa?

Over the summer the Michael W Travels family spent 5 weeks in the Pacific. During our trip I visited six new countries while Kim, Lucas and Theo visited  five.

When visiting a new country we always try to visit McDonald’s to see what interesting local menu items might be available. Lucas also loves getting a toy and having some time to play in the playground.

Earlier in the trip we made a stop at McDonald’s Fiji. There weren’t many other countries which had McD’s in the region so we knew that we had to try out McDonalds Samoa during our time on the island. Continue reading What Did We Try At McDonald’s Samoa?

What Did We Try At McDonald’s Fiji?

McDonalds Fiji

During our trip to the Pacific, Fiji has been a very important country for the Michael W Travels family. Flights to most of the countries that we’re visiting tend to go through the country.

On our way from the airport to our first hotel, we drove past a Burger King so I figured that there had to be a McDonald’s close by.

Since I had to see what special items might be on the McDonalds Fiji menu, we took a 5 minute taxi ride there for dinner. Continue reading What Did We Try At McDonald’s Fiji?

McDonald’s Has A Despicable Me Menu In This Country

Despicable Me

Despicable Me 3 comes out today, June 30. While this might not be of interest to most of you, it is exciting to Lucas since he’s a big fan. I promised Lucas that I’d take him to see the movie one day so that means I’ll most likely get a decent nap!

For most of the Despicable Me movies, McDonald’s has done a tie-in in the form of a Happy Meal toy. (Lucas has a bunch of them.) Continue reading McDonald’s Has A Despicable Me Menu In This Country

When I travel to new places I love checking out McDonald’s to see what local menu items might be offered.

McD’s also appeals to Lucas, mainly for the toy but it also offers a taste of home (we rarely eat there at home) if/ when you get tired of the local food.

Over the years, I’ve written about McDonalds in we visited in: Continue reading McDonald’s Hong Kong Serves Mac ‘N Cheese Sandwiches!

What Did We Try At McDonald’s Korea?

During our trip to South Koreawe arrived late in Seoul tired and hungry. While I would’ve liked to have had some local food, Kim and I decided that we needed to be quick and play it safe for our first meal. In the process we’d still get to check off something we do when visiting a new country.

There was a McDonald’s across the street from our guesthouse so it was a good time to check out what local menu items might be available. Lucas would be happy to visit to get a toy! Win, win! Continue reading What Did We Try At McDonald’s Korea?

McDonald’s Taking Reservations for Valentine’s Day

Over the years writing my blog, I’ve shared numerous posts about how I love to visit McDonald’s when visiting a new country.

While I do enjoy seeing and trying what local menu items might appear on the McD’s menu, I wouldn’t really call the fast food joint a great place to consider for Valentine’s Day. Continue reading McDonald’s Taking Reservations for Valentine’s Day

McDonald’s Testing Out Walk Through Lane

Walk through

McDonald’s is well known for the Big Mac, Happy Meals, Ronald McDonald and more…

While I rarely dine at McDonald’s at home, I try to visit whenever I go to foreign countries to see what kind of locally- inspired menu items might be offered.

A big convenience of McDonald’s is that its fast food and they also offer drive-through service.

What if you’re walking by and don’t feel like going inside the restaurant? What if you’d like to get walk through service?  Continue reading McDonald’s Testing Out Walk Through Lane
