Who Am I?

A Bangladeshi bridal couple.

And, how do I afford to travel? See below in bold for more about that. Who am I? I am mad for food and adventure, that’s who I am. M’ Adventures is my blog about my adventures in food and travel. I also have audio/podcasts and videos. You can find these on Anchor, Spotify (and other podcast platforms), YouTube: M’s Adventures, Instagram: M’s Adventures, and Facebook. Please subscribe or “follow me” for my newest adventures. These days, I try to add content to Instagram every day. 

I deliberately do not post photos of myself. Nonetheless, here is a little of my provenance. As a child, I lived in four countries moving around the world due to my father’s job. As an adult, I have lived in seven different countries on three different continents.

While in Bangladesh, I tried 100 restaurants in Dhaka. In Colombia, my “100 challenge” was to try 100 fruits that I had never tried before. In Peru, my original goal was to try 500 types of potatoes (there are over 3,000 kinds) but instead I went to over 100 restaurants. My “hobbies” are collecting intangible and easily transportable experiences: Korean restaurant meals, massages, travel, and quirky cultural trivia. Not necessarily in that order.

Pepperoni, American style, is “salame picante” in Florence. Pepperoni in Italian is bell pepper.

When I started writing this blog in 2011, I had no pragmatic goal. Since then, it’s evolved (with requests from my readers) into a space where I write about my food and travel experiences, and expat life. Hopefully, once in a while my blog is actually of service! 

How do I afford it? This is the million dollar question. 

I have a day job that moves me from country to country… but I do not write about it, as it’s not as interesting as writing about food and travel. How do I afford it? I choose to spend my money on food and travel. Some things are pricey like the aquaplane taxi in the Maldives which cost $350 (see my cell phone cover below). Some things are pretty cheap like an espresso in Rome for $1.30. What I don’t buy is a Bugatti Veyron for $2.5 million. As if!

I use a iPhone SE2020 and not this phone for my photos.
