About Me

I like food. I love to travel.

I’ve traveled all over Europe, I’ve fallen in love with Morocco and Turkey, I crisscrossed Armenia, I’ve peeked under the hood of China in a short two weeks. I try to travel light, low cost, with respect to local customs. I feel most comfortable among the locals.

My favorite way to experience a foreign culture is through food. Exploring local gastronomic specialties and restaurants takes me the most time in preparation. I enjoy dedicating myself to it. I have been pursuing cooking as a hobby for many years now and cook on a daily basis.

Good food can easily become the goal of a journey.

I was born in a small village in Wallachia region, but since 2001 I have been living in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic.

Bon apetit!
