WELCOME and thanks for stopping by!

My name is Ann (obviously). Born in a small town in Florida called Hollywood. Moved around a number of times, within the United States and abroad. I am currently based in Houston, Texas. And since 99.99% of people never guess my age correctly, I’ll say it right now — I am in my 30s.

This blog is written and edited by me. All photos are taken with a Samsung Galaxy phone or Canon Powershot G15, unless stated otherwise.


What is this blog about?

  • Do you love to travel and are inquisitive about other cultures?
  • Do you travel to explore exotic or native foods?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, then you have come to the right place. If not, hopefully you can still find something useful on my site.

Disclaimer: I am by no means a chef or a naturally creative cook.

Since 2007, I’ve had to teach myself how to cook from scratch by using recipes. My essential focus is to use as many locally sourced ingredients because that’s what people did hundreds of years ago.

You might be wondering why? What for? Well, food in America has changed in the last 50+ years and I refuse to eat what the average American eats for many reasons. If I can live a life with zero dependency of supermarkets, that would be a dream come true.

I am a firm believer of Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. My hope is that more people (kids, teens, men, women) will start cooking and stop allowing food manufacturers to cook for them.

Why do I travel? Because it gives me the opportunity to create new adventures. Meeting new people. Trying foods I have never heard of. Learning a new language. Discovering different cultures. Discovering more about myself. Learning more about this country called the United States of America. And so much more!

One of my biggest regrets was waiting for someone to travel with. I waited too long, so now I travel alone 99% of the time. It is still one of my best decisions ever!

Since tomorrow is not guaranteed, why not live your best life now? I hope that through this blog, I can inspire you to think outside of the box, travel, eat well and live well.

So join me as I discover new adventures!!
