Here I Go…
After many years in a successful career, doing the 9 – 5 thing, I am done sitting in traffic and hitting the time clock. I am ready for my next “Big Adventure” TRAVEL-EAT-COOK !
That’s what I’m gonna do… And this is where I’m going to share it all with you!
Some Quick History…
About 25 years ago, I met the man who would become my husband and partner in life. Back then we knew we wanted travel to be an important part of our journey together.
To make this happen, we started our first and only joint bank account (called it the “Wedding” account originally, that morphed to the Travel account) which we still share today.
So far we have traveled to over 300 cities in roughly 43 countries! I’ve learned a lot and Travel-Eat-Cook is where I will be sharing my thoughts, tips, and tricks … the good and the not so good.
But I’ve only just scratched the surface of this amazing planet … Now is the time to really head out!
Ok, you say, we get the Travel part of this blog.
What’s up with Eat and Cook…?
For me, food and eating is the best way to get to know a culture. I love to walk through the markets, see the fresh foods, and breathe in all the terrific smells. I want to taste everything (almost everything… not gonna eat a scorpion on a stick)!
Since I generally don’t have access to a kitchen while on the road, I have to suffer alongside all the other roadies (trippers, trekkers) out there eating meals in wonderful restaurants, bistros, café’s, on street corners, and diners. There are times, of course, when I need to find a Starbucks or McDonalds because let’s face it sometimes you want what you know.
Once I get home, all I want to do is try out the new tastes I’ve experienced. I head to the kitchen and do my best to re-create
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 been.
So that’s what I’m doing …
I’m going to travel the world, eat great food, and then come home and cook those wonderful dishes for my friends and family and share all this with you…
Please join me! It’s going to be a great trip!
