Topic: Anthony Bourdain

Just got back from a morning bike ride and this hit me harder than I would have expected. He pulled back the layers on what it meant to be a traveler. He's someone that you might not always agree with but you still wanted to hear what he had to say.

Very sad. I’m going to miss him.

From Halifax, N.S.

Re: Anthony Bourdain

Super sad. I worked in restaurants from age 14-22, first as a dishwasher and eventually as a line cook. Kitchen Confidential was one of those books that I simply could not put down, like nothing else in life at that moment could possibly be more important that reading every page.

Re: Anthony Bourdain

This hit me and my wife super hard. His voice was authentic, unwavering, and uniquely his - in writing and on screen. It feels like losing an old friend, that you hadn't seen in years but always got on with. The world is definitely a little less colorful today. He will be missed.

Same goes for my wife and I.

I self-medicate with drugs and alcohol to help treat my extreme social anxiety.
