Who is the girl behind the blog?

About me

Hello, my name is Carolyne… (hi Carolyne). I am new around here. Long time lurker, first-time poster.

I am an accountant by day and a professional Netflixer by night. Truthfully, I am only working full-time so I can fund my dinners and vacations. As a typical accountant, I am an introvert. I like to be with my own thoughts and admire the beauty in my surroundings. Although I do not talk much, I am a great listener and a loyal friend.

When I am not trying new restaurants or traveling, I am listening to music or going to music festivals and concerts. I love music and its ability to bring people together with the same passion and interest.

How this blog came to life

I can start with the generic, “I created a blog about food and travel because I love food and I love to travel” but I’m not. Don’t get me wrong, I do like all of that, but it is so obvious and not exactly why I started this blog.

I take great joy in planning my trips and spending countless hours researching on various sites. My conversations with people would often lead to talking about their future travels or where I can get the best food. I am always opened to new recommendations and love participating in discussions on where I can get the best _______.

I needed a place to store my itineraries and notes, as well as, my recommendations and details of my experiences. I was tired of sharing Google Drive documents with everyone as it doesn’t consist of any travel photos but mere names of places. I wanted people to see the pictures I took so everyone can have a better understanding of what I am talking about. Through all my research and adventures, I have learned which places are a must see and which I would suggest avoiding and want to share them with the world.

Thus, the idea of a blog was born.

A friend once said to me Don’t let your dreams, be dreams”. So what the hell, here I am, trying to make a dream come true.

I am working on creating valuable content for my friends and fellow travelers. Since this is still a work in progress, please bear with me. This blog is in no way intended to be works of art, a literature essay…but my candid thoughts. I just want to share my thoughts, experiences, and excitement with everyone in the simplest way possible.

Now, less talk, more food and adventures.

Thank you for your support. I hope to see you again soon!
