When I started making plans for my husband’s and mine getaway to Georgia I got a lot of, “Why Georgia?” or, “What is there to do in Atlanta? Why are you spending most of your trip there?” And the best one was, “Wow, Georgia, I hear that’s a gorgeous country,” and my response was, “No we’re […]Read More
Our first introduction to Atlanta eateries was a burger joint. Or so I thought. I’m a huge planner. I can’t go traveling unless I know exactly what is reserved and confirmed. My planning and organizing of the trip, to me, is as much fun as the actual trip – so even though it sounds anal, […]Read More
Eating out for me has taken a different turn lately. I’ve discovered that after countless of fine dining experiences and other restaurants that, aside from being great and unique can be found in any city in any part of the world. In other words, they aren’t specific or impactful to the place I am visiting. […]Read More
Beignets turned out to be not only the food of choice for my kids, but we found ourselves eating them literally for breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner. And this was true for four out of the seven days we were there. Needless to say, I gained at least five pounds of beignet goodness, something that […]Read More
Beignets, Beignets, Beignets. This is all we heard before coming to New Orleans. Everyone was telling us it is a must to eat them. Plus, watching ‘Princess and the Frog’ eight hundred times you have to get a taste. However, before diving deep into beignets only, I found Cafe Beignet which also offered a full menu […]Read More
What is the one thing that is one every parent’s mind when traveling? Food! At least for me it is. My kids are super picky eaters so making sure they eat at restaurants that will be fun for them is a big deal for me. Even though I was looking for kid friendly grub I […]Read More
You can not come to New Orleans and not eat home style cooked gumbo. Sure, practically every restaurant you go to has gumbo offered on the menu. But it is always better to go to the ones that specialize in it. And with some help from NOLA CVB, Gumbo Shop was the chosen one for […]Read More
One thing you can not avoid is an encounter with the great Mississippi River while visiting New Orleans. The French Quarters goes right into. Seafood is practically a staple of New Orleans and Louisiana’s cuisine. Strolling along the river walk is a must do. And of course the best way to truly enjoy Ol’ Man […]Read More
I love visiting ‘Famous’ restaurants of each location I visit. Mother’s Restaurant was one of the top recommendations I got from NOLA CVB. And good reason. Why Mothers New Orleans is Worth a Visit First of all it is known to have the best baked ham in the world. A pretty big statement to make. […]Read More
New Orleans is known to have some of the most unique foods created in all of the US that are native to this city. This was one of my missions, to try as much of the local food as possible. But the best way to do it, is where the recipe either started or grew […]Read More
When I was in high school I had a really close friend who was old school Italian. When I say Old School, I mean her parents were off the boat with all the old traditions in tact. Her mother reminded me of The Godfather’s wife (Don Corleone). This was most true in her cooking. Honestly, […]Read More
Antigua Guatemala, in my opinion, is a central hub for restaurants of all sorts of gastronomical experiments. And, when one lives in Antigua it is easy to experience most of them since the town is so small. And even though there are a ton of restaurants, only a handful are truly worth going to and returning […]Read More
Living in Antigua it is virtually impossible not to hear about Tikal Futura Mall. We’ve been there several times to go bowling and do a bit of shopping. Visiting the mall I’ve seen signs to Grand Tikal Futura Hotel, but always thought of it as a motel or more along the lines of a budget […]Read More
Eating is a huge part of traveling. So, when I was in the process of working with INGUAT, Instituto Guatemalteco de Turismo (Guatemala’s Tourism Board and Institue), for our private tour of Guatemala City, Nais Guatemala Restaurant was recommended. After doing some more research and chatting with Norman, our private travel guide of Turismo Chapin, we decided […]Read More
Doing a private Medellin City tour is hard work and requires fuel for the body. And what better way to enjoy lunchtime than tasting a traditional Medellin meal – Bandeja Paisa. Meals aren’t included in the City Tour by Colombia Travel Operator, but it is definitely part of the tour and a tiny expense which […]Read More
A huge prerequisite for me when visiting any part of the world is to always taste the local food and drink. Every single country has something that is extra special for either the country, city or town that you visit and in Colombia there are so many that I had a blast tasting many. My […]Read More
Amish Cooking is without a doubt one of my favorite ways to eat. Even though I’ve never lived in the country. Or been near a farm, but I must be a country girl at heart, cause the food in Lancaster has been one of my absolute favorite. Everywhere you look apple butter abounds. It’s served […]Read More
Did you know that I lived in NYC for four years before I took off on my travel adventure that led me to my inevitable life as an expat? I did. And I have to confess that in all those years I never visited Carnegie Deli. I passed it hundreds of times. I always peaked […]Read More
Can you really get the words affordable, delicious and kid friendly into one sentence when describing a NYC restaurant? I honestly didn’t think that is a possibility. Sure kid friendly exists here, but affordable as in less than $10 for a delicious huge meal that a child will devour? Have to admit, it is a […]Read More
The restaurants I choose during my travels are much more than restaurants. If my family and I are about to spend an entire evening somewhere it usually needs to be an experience that will be remembered rather than just a place to fill our tummies. I focus on this for every place we visit and […]Read More
