For as long as I can remember I’ve always had this itch inside me to discover the world, to learn about new cultures & traditions, to try out new experiences that push my boundaries of comfort, & to learn new languages including the language of cooking in different countries.

This is all possible thanks to my parents who gave me the opportunity from a very young age to experience the world. They taught me to be open-minded & accepting of everything different & to embrace the new. This has shaped the person I am, the decisions I take & the adventures I pursue.

I’ve spent a great deal of my life either moving or traveling to various countries, especially those most foreign to me. More recently, lots of my travel has been focused on authentic local experiences that sometimes lead me off the beaten path including cooking classes from local Auntis.

Here you’ll find travel & food guides to places I’ve visited.

I would love to hear your feedback & any additional advice, tips & recommendations that could be added to the list.

Much Love,
