Cambridge is my playground and beyond is my inspiration!

Welcome to my travel blog ‘the Globetrotter Foodie’, an exciting new travel and food website. It’s all about exploring the world through the eyes of a foodie, with handy tips for my top kitchen gadgets and a collection of my favourite recipes. 

Creating exciting food tours in Cambridge hasn’t just come overnight. I was bitten by the travel bug at the age of 13 and it has taken me to many incredible destinations since. From Europe to the Far East, from Canada to the Middle East and from the North East Coast of America to Southern Africa, I have travelled far and wide and enjoyed fantastic cities such as New York and Prague and wonderful countries like Cuba and India. I was very fortunate to live in Cape Town for over 2.5 years – a place which will feel like home for the rest of my life. As they say in South Africa ‘once a Capie, always a Capie’ and this is certainly true for me!

All these travel experiences have contributed to my food tours in Cambridge. Quoted many years ago as ‘the clone city of the UK’, this quintessential English town is now peppered with international cuisine.

My travel is always fuelled by food, the local markets, and my love of mingling with local people. I’m looking forward to sharing all these adventures with you, in the hope that I can inspire you to retrace my footsteps. Unfortunately, I cannot share any travels from before 2012 as I didn’t record them with modern-day tools, but as I revisit them, I will feed in my previous experiences.

With so many food temptations in life…

What would I do without somebody to dine with, carry my bags or take the best shots during my travels? Not to forget how to keep fit and burn off all the calories consumed in delicious food!

Escaping from the ‘law’, he isn’t just a brilliant travel buddy, fabulous chef and great husband, but an excellent photographer too. Many of his photos feature here on my blog and on my social media.

I’m looking forward to sharing the best things in life with you – food – travel – exploring the world!
