Travel Tarte serves up slices of life from around the world: stories about the places I’ve been and seen, the people I meet and food focused pieces on ingredients, dishes or meals that I encounter along the way. As a food anthropologist (and human being who generally loves eating!) I have a whole section of posts dedicated to food and food culture, exploring life across the globe through the lens of food.
My style of travel often keeps me off the more well-trodden tourist path, I try to seek out lesser known places and love to discover interesting stories about the people I find there. But sometimes I visit more touristy places too, there’s usually always something interesting to be found, it just requires a little creativity to escape the crowds.
Currently, my life is lived out of a 65 litre backpack (no room for impulse purchases or souvenirs) and in budget accommodation or, in emergencies, the trusty tent (glamorous, I know).
I also collaborate on a storytelling project called Train Tarte Tales where we seek out, write, photograph and podcast stories from people and places we’ve encountered on our travels.
