Hello and welcome! Do you travel mostly through your taste buds as well? Good, because you have come to the right place.
Growing up in San Francisco, surrounded by a diverse culinary landscape, food has always been the main way for me to understand and connect to a culture. As I got older, and began to travel and live abroad, I realized how much this approach has stayed true.
Small World This Is was created as a place to share these delicious intercultural instances that happen both back at home in California, and when I travel.
Glad to have you here and cheers to many delicious adventures!
Is blogging your full time job?
Nope. I am a full-time freelance writer and you can view my portfolio here.
What is your favorite destination for culinary travel?
Oh man that’s hard, but I have to say Turkey is pretty high up there. Could eat kofte, pide, and borek all day, every day.
Where have you lived?
Where are your favorite spots to eat in San Francisco?
I grew up right next to the Inner Richmond neighborhood and have a soft spot for this area of the city. Here’s a list of some of my favorites.
What are some spots to visit around the Bay Area?
I’m a big fan of the East Bay, especially Oakland, Berkeley, and Alameda. From good food to scenic outdoor spaces, there something for everyone.
What food should I try in Krakow?
Pierogi of course, but beyond these famous dumplings I would recommend going to a local milk bar where you can experience traditional Polish food at affordable prices.
I’m traveling to Turkey for the first time, where should I go?
Istanbul should not be missed, but also make sure to visit smaller cities like Izmir and the surrounding beach cities like Foca and Cesme.
