Traveling — it leaves you breathless, then turns you into a storyteller. Ibn Battuta

Travel Suitcases

Cooking and gardening are my creative passions; but as I have noted before, I have other loves, one of which is travel.  I love to hit the road!

Give me a new place, a map, a camera and enough time to explore, and I’m a happy woman.

One of the best things about traveling is soaking up new cultures, foods and traditions.  There are so many cool things to learn from other places in the world.  Wherever I go, I try to learn about how the locals live and the foods they love.

Wherever I go, I take hundreds of photos, which ensures that a dozen or two will be worth sharing.  I come by this naturally – my mom was a shutterbug and kept wonderful travelogue scrapbooks, and my Dad is still adding to his photography skills and collection of cameras.

I originally started this blog in the spring of 2015 to document and share my recipes, but I’ve realized that there is more to share than just how to make a wonderful meal.  So here is where I’ll collect my occasional travel-based posts and musings.

I also really enjoy reading travelogues from others and today stumbled on a neat blog from a college student.  She did a really nice post of eight favorite travel quotes:  click here.  Her blog is where I found the quote at the top of this page.

I’m just getting started:
