Today’s International Restaurant Project includes cuisines I don’t know much about. I had eaten Indian food a couple of times before, but not enough to know what I like. I had never eaten Israeli food. And I think I’ve only ever had Korean food twice before this. So it was an interesting mix. Take a […]

I’m really enjoying my Berlin International Restaurant Project, although I haven’t been to as many new international restaurants as I’d like lately. Since I don’t want to be constrained to going through the country list alphabetically, I sometimes struggle to motivate myself to choose a country or two and find restaurants. But I’m working on […]
When Andy and I moved to Berlin, we each joined a bunch of meetup.com groups that sounded interesting. We were hoping this would be a fun way to explore the city and meet new people, maybe even make some friends. Most of them didn’t work out, but one group we joined recently has some promise.
Finding a new Thai restaurant for my Berlin International Restaurant Project was not a hard task. There are Thai restaurants all over the city. But I was a little more picky about finding a good one than I had been about some other types of cuisines, since we already have a few Thai restaurants we […]
Trying new restaurants is fun, but I so often get stuck in a rut, always eating at the same few places I’ve grown to love. So I started the Berlin International Restaurant Project. The goal of the project is to eat at one new (to me) restaurant for every country in the world in Berlin. […]
About a year ago, I decided to start a project as a way of having a not-so-travel-related goal. What I came up with was the Berlin International Restaurant Project. The objective is to eat at one restaurant for every country in the world in Berlin. It also has to be a new place for me, […]
I’m in bed trying to fall asleep. But I can’t. Three other women are snoring nearby. One occasionally switches to groaning or talking in her sleep. Every so often someone wakes up and digs through a bag. Something plastic rustles in the corner. Someone comes in the room around 3am and turns on the light. […]
This year hasn’t turned out at all like I would have imagined last year. Which makes it hard to even try to tell you what I think next year might look like. And no one really ever knows what the future looks like, do they? Even with the best laid plans, you can’t know. Here’s […]
A few weeks ago, I was so stressed out about so many things, and I was having a meltdown about something insignificant because whatever it was, was the last straw. I told Andy I needed a change of scenery, needed to take my mind off all the things pulling at it.
I’ve started making it a habit to look for food tours everywhere I travel. They’re fun, and I find them to be a really interesting way to try new foods and learn about the food culture and history of the destination I’m visiting. I thought I would find tons of fish dishes listed on the […]
