My travels have taken me through more than 20 countries on four continents and one of the saddest days of my life was when I was forced to retire my old passport which I had filled, and even added pages! I’ve got a shiny new one now and can’t wait to revisit some of my favorite travel memories as well as to make new ones. I love to write about the people I meet, places I visit, and of course the delicious foods I find along the way.
