I write about food and travel because I believe that the two are inextricably linked. If you travel to a new city and eat only food from home, you haven’t really experienced the culture at all. When I visit a new place, I make it my mission to try things I’ve never tried before and […]
Hey foodie friends! I’m going to let you in on a little secret. If you’re into good food, interesting history and having fun (and who doesn’t want all those things?), you better add Düsseldorf to your list of cities to visit now! As someone with a major sweet tooth, I often spend my time in German cities […]
When I think about Morocco, the flavorful tagines, spiced olives, and juicy fruit prick my tastebuds as I dream of the country I’ve grown to love. However, warnings of street food have left me with a hole in my experience, never getting a chance to savor flavors as a true Moroccan during my two weeks […]
Brighton is a colorful, quirky seaside resort town just an hour train ride away from London. On a recent day trip, I made it my goal to consume as many desserts in Brighton as possible. With all the desserts I ate, I could have buzzed back to London on sugar power alone… but alas, the […]

In the heart of the London, near St James’s Park, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey, there’s a gorgeous, historic 4-star hotel bringing a bit of buzz to the city. St. Ermin’s was converted into a hotel in 1899, but previous lives saw this property as a chapel in the 15th century and a mansion in […]
I’ve taken cooking classes all around the world. I learned to make Thai food in Thailand, French food in France, and Italian food in Italy. It only makes sense that I’d learn to make vegan food and cocktails in London. I was invited to a vegan sushi and cocktail class at The Avenue Cookery School, […]

As a girl who’s been described as a Disney Princess on more than one occasion, it only makes sense that I’d feel right at home in a unicorn cafe. Savvy businessmen and women are capitalizing on this fun and fanciful trend and these Instagrammable cafés are popping up around the world.
