A vacation bucket list for your tastebuds.

If you're venturing off to the breathtaking sights of San Sebastián, you sure as heck should have some paella while you're there. The rice-based dish with fresh seafood, meats and vegetables is part of Spain's culture; it's typically served family-style to prompt all grumbling stomachs to gather and enjoy the flavors together. The proteins and veggies may vary based on individual preferences, but paella is traditionally cooked in a large, shallow pan over an open flame no matt

Every country has its own iconic dish, a meal that would be a real shame not to taste in the land of its origin. Before you escape to your next getaway, make sure you know what kind of vacation your tastebuds will be going on, too. Check out the infographic from Perfect Stays below; the food itself may inspire your next trip.

(Note: while the graphic notes Paella is often made with chorizo, that isn't the case in Spain. This guide was written by our pals across the pond, who use "swede" to refer to rutabaga.)
