Trusting Grace and Travelling this world with a fork!

J’ai mange des vers ! Yeah, I ate worms. Well, they were crispy fried flower worms, but all the same. Worms! That’s when I figured I needed to write about it, but didn’t know if I really wanted to. Well it did go into my diary, but the internet is another ball game.

After forgetting about it for another thirteen months (Ha! much longer than a human gestation period), my friends finally persuaded me into blogging since they loved my trip advisor reviews and ghost travel pieces. And I met some really amazing people on my last trip that I just had to write about. So here I am!

I’m a traveller at heart. (Isn’t everybody?) And a foodie too. Well, I still get confused between a gyro and a shawarma. But I am human! I’ll bet it will happen again too, with some exotic dishes that I haven’t tasted yet. Can’t wait! What do you think?

But I digress. Back to travel. I’ve been to a few countries, have lived in tents and a friend’s cave on the one hand, and in luxurious hotels on the other. Every place I visit adds a few more places to my bucket list. It never ends, and I hope it never will! Well, if it did, I wouldn’t have anything to blog about.

Or maybe I would. I could blog about food, right? I love cooking, but I love eating more. Hence, no certifications or courses. Just taking a bit of this and a bit of that and turning it into something delicious. My friends love my cooking. (My family not so much. They say I’m fattening them up!) I love baking too. I help my sister sell cakes and cookies (as a hobby) via our Facebook page on our days off.

Work-wise, well I was in Banking and IT for a long time, and did well too! But neither were my passion. So I switched to content writing, where I’m a lot happier. Sometimes Jesus takes us down the long road to our destiny, doesn’t he? So much learning along the way… Anyways, I ghost write content for finance, real estate, pharma, travel, health and food blogs. We do have to make a living one or another.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your reads make it worth it! Oh, and if you want to read about les vers – the crispy fried worms from earlier, here you go!

My amazing sister contributes to my blog when she finds something interesting that she just has to rave about (read ‘write pages about’).

 The Soz


The Soz also contributes to my blog. The Soz often takes to the skies. However the majority of the time these gravity defying feats are for business and not pleasure. Although she flies a lot for business, it does not stop her from flying once again to go where no Soz has gone before. Saying that… The Soz says that reading about her is not as interesting as reading about the places she’s been. So scroll on down and let the adventures begin!
