I slowly wander the world, have mostly one-way conversations with animals, and try to find interesting things to do between meals. 

I created my dream lifestyle, traveling full-time for 5 years as a food & travel writer and petsitter, with a 5 pound carry-on bag.

With travel advice, lifestyle guides, fun inspiration, and the best eats on earth - This is how I do the voodoo that I do, and how you can too!

"If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food, it's a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move."
