Foodgasmic Tales

Well ladies and gentleman, it’s no surprise that Feast Portland 2016 was a pretty epic festival this past month. The 2015 festival was my first Feast experience, and this year was even better and more indulgent than last year (hard to believe). As a recap, Feast takes over the city each September for 4 legendary days and showcases […]


Shortly into our year-long trip around the world in 2012, Tony and I realized that much of the destinations we decided to visit were dictated by our stomachs. To me, there is no better way to explore a culture, learn about a city, meet new people, and engage with loved ones than through good food and […]

1. What waiters see Every. Single. Time… they deliver your food. Meg & I love food to an insane degree. That’s beyond obvious, right? I mean, we left our jobs to travel for a year solely so we could eat everything we could find… We’re now taking that passion to the next level and starting a […]


Tony and I just started our summer gig petsitting in the Sierra Nevada Mountains (California) on a beautiful 20-acre ranch complete with 4 pups, 2 wild horses, 2 cats, internet, and incredible scenery. But besides spending our days working on building our empire, running the nearby hiking trails, and playing with the animals, there isn’t […]
