‘Travelogues X: Gastronomic Discoveries Around the Globe’ with Lisa Martin to be Presented Virtually on Friday, May 13

Gastronomic Discoveries

The Silver Spring Town Center, Inc. series Travelogues Series: Gastronomic Discoveries Around the Globe will continue on with an online presentation from 5-6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 13, with host Lisa Martin. The free series allows participants to share travel stories related to memorable culinary moments.

During the event, those wishing to share their experiences can post photos and a story of a special place they have visited. Photos should include one photo of the individual plus up to five others. They also will have an opportunity to tell others about their trip and the food they found.

To register for the event, go to

To be part of the discussion, participants should:
  • Pick your five to six photos of one special place/destination in the world you have visited.
  • Include a photo that includes you at the site.
  • Then share with a three-minute or less story.
During the share and tell time, the participants also will be enjoying an international happy hour, so they should join being prepared with a cocktail (or other beverage) from a special place in the world. Consider pairing it with an appetizer or early dinner, since the series will be talking food.

Space for "presenters" is limited. Others who may not want to share an experience are still welcome to join. However, everyone must register in advance to participate.
