You’re home!

Well you’ve reached my home page anyway. Or is it called a landing page? Who cares? Anyway, thank you for stopping by! Let me introduce myself. I’m the girl who hates worms. Read ‘hates’ as ‘is scared of’. Well, I’m scared of the live ones. The fried ones I found crispy and yummy. So much so that I wrote a blog about them. I’m also the girl who loves travel and food, especially going places I’ve never been to eat local cuisines. You can read more about me here.

My sister Sarah and friend The Soz contribute to my blog every now and then. You can read more about them by clicking on their names. A few more friends and other bloggers from around the globe contribute guest posts off and on. You can find their contributions in the Guest Writer section.

If you want to come back and read my next post, I usually try to post on Tuesdays or Fridays, because the rest of the week I’m slogging at work like everyone else, just trying to make a living. And thank you for telling me what you think of my blogs. Your comments give me direction.

Loads of Blessings,

Here are some of our most viewed posts. Enjoy!
