This blog started in August 2006 only to help friends keep up with us and our travels, with a very strong emphasis on food and wine. My friends are scattered all over the world, and me and my husband T. change locations very often as well. Being freelancers and having been bitten by the travel bug do that to you. But my statistics tell me almost a thousand people are visiting my page each day to read the newest or to search for information on specific food and recipes, or locations. As much as I love being “gesellig”, I don’t believe I have that many friends.
So here are some tidbits about me, for those who don’t know me personally. For more on me and my life, you have to keep on reading the food vagabond!
Born (in 1970) and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, in a multicultural family. German citizen since 2004, but feels herself European. Her favorite city to live in (not just visit) is Munich. Lived in the USA and Italy for a couple of years, as well. Loves eating, drinking wine, cooking, travelling and reading. If possible, all of the above combined and enjoyed with friends. Has no children. Has currently no pets. Has three most-beloved persons in her life: T. is always here, one E. is two thousand km away and the second E. on the other side of the ocean. Had three and a half very different careers, has just started the fourth one (it is about wine!) in Rome this year. Loves sourdough bread with butter, real cheese, bloody meat and bitter chocolate. Will eat (and enjoy) almost anything. Drinks water without gas but is very fussy about it, maybe as fussy as with her wine. Despises fava beans in shells. Lives to eat and drink, not the other way around.
Current Location: Rome, Italy.
