As I sit here writing on my seventeen hour flight from Los Angeles to Bangkok, after just downing a pizza, I'd say Foodie Meets World is pretty fitting. To say I love food and love to travel is hopefully clear by now, so I'll tell you a little more about how I got started with this blog...

In 2013, I so nervously embarked on one of the greatest adventures of my entire life: studying abroad in Barcelona. I did not know one person going into my trip, but luckily I had six amazing roommates and was in a program with some of the coolest people I've ever met. Living in an apartment in the heart of Barcelona and traveling elsewhere on the weekends was just too good to be true. Honestly, looking back now it seems like it was all a dream! When I arrived back home, the possibility of exploring a new place was always on my mind. If the wanderlust ever kicks in (always does!), I decide to act like a tourist in my own city. Even something as simple as trying a new, trendy restaurant is exciting for me! And hey, if they have pizza and some good ranch dressing....I'm definitely not mad about it. 

Food. It's sometimes embarrassing how much excitement I get from food, but I honestly just love it. I could seriously eat pizza for every meal and I would not get sick of it (I can say this only because I actually did in college....oops). Yes, I get it, pizza is like soooo basic omg, but pizza never disappoints. Homemade ranch dressing isn't so bad either. I used to be a really great baker, but in the past couple years I've learned to be a better cook! I actually like cooking way more than baking now. Most of my recipes are decently healthy (I'm only 5'2" so I gotta make up for the pizza somehow, and I can't say I'm consistent in the gym lol). I try to find a balance between healthy meals and cheat meals and those in between. Some days I do better than others, but I mean there's always yoga pants right? Que Mean Girls, "Sweatpants are all that fit me right now" Just kidding! Kinda....

Another thing I love is photography. I am by no means a photographer, but I love taking pictures of everything. Yes, I am that person who takes pictures of pretty much everything I eat. Like it or hate it, that's me!  I absolutely love my Canon Rebel and I have a GoPro Hero 4 Silver. If you have any photography tips, please stop by my contact page and introduce yourself! I also take plenty of pictures on my trusty iPhone. My photography goal: make myself get on the other side of the camera more often! 

Anyways, to sum it all up, I like food and travel and I hope to inspire YOU to go on more adventures! Follow along with me for some awesome travel tips and food.
