Anthony Bourdain lived ferociously and so much in 62 short years, the majority of people could only dream of living a life like that. You could feel his spirit through a TV screen, connect with his words, or drop your jaw at the things spewing from his mouth. One of the most respected Chefs and food critics in the world, but Mr. Bourdain was so much more than that.
I’m excited as I write these words on June 11th at the Tribeca Film Festival, “Roadrunner” premiers a documentary about the life and times of rockstar author, chef, and traveler, Anthony Bourdain. On July 16th the film will be released widely in theaters. June 8th, 2018 Anthony couldn’t take the pain any longer and sadly took his own life. You never know how much pain someone is in internally. Life on the outside can look completely different to the person living it.
“Travel isn’t always pretty, you go away, you learn, you get scarred, marked, changed in the process.”
-Anthony Bourdain; Rest In Power (June 25, 1956 – June 8, 2018)
