World-renowned chef, author and Emmy winning television personality Anthony Bourdain visits Tangier, Morocco in the next episode of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," airing Sunday, May 12, at 9 p.m. ET. Follow the show on Twitter and Facebook.

One of the signature photos people always take home with them from Morocco is of heaping piles of spices in a variety of enticing colorful displays. These setups aspire to overwhelm visitors with the enchantment of a new and undiscovered place – and to encourage wide-eyed tourists to part with their dollars.

Diane Rice of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, captured a singular image of one of those remarkably shaped groupings of spice cones, a monument to Morocco's exotic qualities.

Fragrant spices, savory vegetables and delectable presentation make Nepalese cuisine just as intriguing as the culturally infused country from which it originates. But many people might have trouble defining what exactly constitutes food from Nepal.

Neerakar Uprety went back to Nepal for a three-week visit in July 2011 after living in the United States for eight years. The Washington resident's goal was to see his home country's meals in a new light. He tried several different foods and shot gorgeous photographs of their presentation.

Uprety maintains a blog called Nick's Palate about his love of exotic foods, and he shared several of his pictures with CNN iReport as part of the Destination Adventure ongoing travel project.

The fabled Patagonia region of Argentina beckons visitors seeking adventure and the mystique of a place that is now emblazoned on the logo of a brand-name clothing outfitter.

But for Jane Teas of Columbia, South Carolina, a December 2009 trip to Argentina was a chance to learn more about seaweed harvesting.

Teas uses Argentine seaweed in her own research on dietary uses of this product of the world's waters, so she had a particular interest in seeing its origins.

Oktoberfest beercation: confessions of a first-time beer taster

One of my biggest irrational worries right now is of somehow becoming incapacitated, forcing authorities to barge into my apartment all movie-style and come face-to-face with the large number of full and empty beer bottles that I currently have scattered around the place.

What was going on that brought so much beer into her apartment? Either serious problems, or serious partying.

But I assure you, it's all in the name of science. And there really is such a thing as too much beer. Really.
