I have always loved to travel. I’ve always wanted to write. I also love to eat. I now have the privilege of being able to do all three, by ‘throwing in the towel’ so to speak and travelling full-time with my partner Mike, writing about our experiences, and eating new and exotic (but not too exotic) foods. One day I’d love to get paid to travel (don’t we all), own a chateau in France, be fluent in Italian, French and Spanish, and be able to eat anything I want without a) getting food poisoning, and b) getting fat. More than anything, I hope to encourage others to take more time out in their lives to travel (if not their whole life!) by sharing our experiences as to how easy and affordable long term travel can be.
