Well, hello!

Thanks for stopping by. 

So what inspired us to start this journal, blog or whatever you want to call it? Covid19 - that's what!

Until the Spring of 2020, I'd been the Queen of Procrastination 

"I'm going to start a food and travel blog" but general life seemed to get in the way. "Stay Home" they said. All of a sudden there were no more excuses.

So the purpose of this blog is to celebrate the small world that there is out there. As a couple, we wanted to share our food and travel misadventures and mishaps. 

It's been a standing joke amongst friends that they will never travel when we do. It's not because we make terrible travel companions - far from it. But, so far we've survived tsunami, hurricanes, terrorist attacks, typhoons (that was a memorable honeymoon). And, you know what? It's never dented our desire to travel and see the world. Even getting bitten by a triggerfish hasn't put us off. 

So why incorporate food and gardening into this blog? Well, for us food and travel go hand in hand. Enjoying local cuisine and immersing in the flavours - isn't that what holidays are all about? And when we're at home, creating new dishes, trying new recipes and foods is what we like to do. Plus, I've worked in food & drink marketing (and have a boutique food PR business) for the past 20 years. 

Mr P is a talented gardener and each year we enjoy the fruits of his labour - be it cherry tomatoes, carrots, broad beans or cucamelons! 

We hope that this blog offers help and some useful tips and advice to our fellow travel, food and gardening fans.

Mr & Mrs P xx
