“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller”
– Ibn Battuta
I’m Kate. I have a huge passion for traveling and exploring this wonderful world we live in. I got my first taste of international travel when I was 18 and now I’m always counting down the days until my next adventure. Although I wish I could spend all my time exploring the world, I work full-time in engineering at a job I love. I believe that you don’t have to abandon your career or life in order to see the world. Travel is a mindset and even when I can’t explore new destinations, I’m always looking for adventures close to home.
I was born and raised in the Midwest and I love spending my time exploring the beauty in this area. I have a boyfriend of four years, Sant, who is my best friend and favorite travel partner. I’m an avid reader, food enthusiast, and an adventure seeker that is exploring our world one trip at a time.
About My Site
I started Travel Far, Eat Well to document my journey through charming cities and my experiences tasting and cooking new foods.
I believe life is too short and the world is too big for anyone to stay in one place for their entire life. My goal is to experience new cultures, meet new people, learn new languages, and venture outside of my comfort zone. Although I have big dreams of traveling far and exploring lands and cultures different from my own, I think it’s so important to never forget where you came from. Travel Far, Eat Well chronicles my adventures near, far and everywhere in between.
When I think of eating well, I think of expanding my culinary horizons by trying all types of foreign cuisine. When I travel, I’m not only looking forward to seeing the architecture and experiencing the culture, I’m always excited to taste the native dishes.
Tasting foods from around the world motivates me to test my culinary boundaries in the kitchen. One way to satisfy my wanderlust when I can’t travel is to recreate some of my favorite culinary delights from the countries I’ve visited. Travel Far, Eat Well reveals some of my favorite restaurants, foods, and recipes from my travels.
