“How Many Big Macs does it take?”

The Goodman Giants! A family travel blog.Goodman Family-01

Goodman Giants: Nick, Shelly, Savannah, Boston, Houston, Tacoma. Giants love to travel, and love sharing this family travel blog with the world. Experiencing as much of the local culture as possible, all while maintaining a safety net of comfort food!

One of the aspects of travel that the Giants have trepidation about is the local fare. As much as enjoying new places, new foods, and new cultures creates found memories, there are some picky eaters in the midst of Giants. No matter where family travelers go in the world, there is almost always a McDonald’s nearby. If the oftentimes exotic food does not go down so well, Giants can fill up on Big Macs! As American Giants this group is well qualified to say that McDonald’s tastes better outside of the States. Could be that it is a reminder of home? Not likely the case – the Big Macs around the world look like the pictures in the American ads.

The family gauges experiences eating local foods by seeing “how many Big Macs it takes” to fill up after an experience meal. Consuming 6 Big Macs means the group is not going back. If post dinner only takes 1 or 2 Big Macs then consider that a win!

The family rates everything from accommodations to the local water with this “how many Big Macs does it take” system! For the purposes of this blog, a 6 Goodmans scale is used:

All 6 liked it!

5 and a half Goodmans liked it!

…and so on.

Experts in the following categories with all Goodman Giants voting:

Nick = Transportation
Shelly = Water
Savannah = Friendliness to Tourists
Boston = Food
Houston = Activities
Tacoma = Chocolate (milk, white, specialty). Dark will get no mentions and no ratings because no Goodman likes dark chocolate!
