Stories from around the world

The beauty & the flowers, Seoul, South Korea

The Travelling Foodie is about stories, stories from every corner of the world. Here I share with you the lessons I learnt throughout my travels, I tell you about the wonderful and less wonderful people I met on the way. From the old man who insisted on inviting me for coffee on a side road in Cappadocia, Turkey to the nice lady who paid for my bus ticket in Busan, South Korea.

Instead, I try to travel slow to soak up the vibe of a place and connect with its people. As much as I find plain guides useful, you won’t find a lot of guides here. I will stay authentic to myself, tell authentic stories that may or may not be Instagrammable.
