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?

Food Quest: Limited Time- Arby’s Venison Sandwich

arbys venison sandwichI’ve only tried Arby’s a handful of times but when I heard (last year, I think) that they would be serving a Venison Sandwich, I definitely wanted to give it a try.

Being an adventurous carnivore, I had tried venison a few times in the past. I enjoyed a reindeer sandwich during a brief visit to Helsinki, Finland, and I also remember having venison steak in Germany a couple of times.

From what I recall, the Arby’s Venison Sandwich was originally available in select locations. A few weeks back I started hearing that every Arby’s location would sell the Venison Sandwich for one day, October 21. Continue reading Food Quest: Limited Time- Arby’s Venison Sandwich

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?
