    Can I use 'know' in this?

    Hi there!

    'Know', in the following sentence, sounds strange to me, but I can't think of something better.


    While I knew new places, I knew different kinds of food too.


    Cheers,
    Tito

    Did the speaker visit those places and try the foods there?

    The word "know" is rather strange there. Perhaps:

    I have visited new places and tried new foods.
