When traveling breaks your heart

A few months ago I wrote about the most amazing meal I've ever had at The Flagship in Cape Town. What made the experience and meal so amazing was Chef Bruce Robertson.

He was an insanely talented chef and a unique character. Mostly though, I saw him as a bright light.

Today I heard of his unexpected passing. It's amazing how traveling opens you up to care about someone you barely know, who lives halfway across the world, just for the experience they gave you. Sometimes traveling just breaks your heart.
