What Is Travel Eat Cook All About?
Travel is our Joy!
About 28 years ago, I met the man who would become my husband and partner in life. While holding down full-time positions in corporate real estate, from the start, we wanted travel to be an important part of our journey together.
We grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is where we live now. And as beautiful as California is, our wanderlust was pulling us further afield.
To make this happen, we opened our first and only joint bank account (called the “Wedding” account originally, which morphed into the Travel account), which we still share today.
So far, we have traveled to over 300 cities in 56 countries! I’ve learned a lot about traveling through different cultures and how food is so important no matter where you go.
But we’ve only scratched the surface of this amazing planet … Now is the time we really head out!
Ok, You Say, We Get The Travel Part
What’s up with Eat and Cook…?
We find food and eating is the best way to get to know a culture. I love walking through the markets, seeing fresh foods, and breathing in all the terrific smells. I want to taste everything (almost everything… not gonna eat a scorpion on a stick)!
Generally, you don’t have access to a kitchen while on the road. You have to suffer alongside all the other roadies (trippers, trekkers) out there eating meals in wonderful restaurants, bistros, cafés, on street corners, and diners.
And there are times, of course, when you need to find a Starbucks or McDonalds because, let’s face it, sometimes you want what you know.
Once we get home, I head to the kitchen to work out the recipes for the new tastes we’ve experienced.
The smell and taste of the food light up the memories, and all at once, I am re-living the sights, sounds, and tastes of the fantastic places I’ve visited.
I love to travel, I love to eat, and I love to cook. I also really enjoy writing! Wrapping these loves of mine together seemed like a natural. And so followed TRAVEL-EAT-COOK.
That’s What We’re Doing …
Traveling the world, eating great food, and then coming home to cook wonderful dishes and share the adventures with you…
Travel-Eat-Cook is where we’ll share thoughts, tips, and tricks on finding fantastic places to visit, grab a spot at a cozy restaurant, and navigating shopping. The good and the not-so-good.
If in your heart of hearts, you are a fellow traveler, please join me! It’s going to be a great trip!
