About Gerla de Boer
Cambridge is my playground & beyond my inspiration!
Welcome to my travel blog, ‘the Globetrotter Foodie’, an exciting travel and food website. It’s all about exploring the world through the eyes of a foodie, including my favourite recipes.
More about me
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, Canada to the Middle East and North East Coast of America to Southern Africa, New Zealand and Australia.
I was 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 award-winning food tours in Cambridge. A city named many years ago as ‘the clone city of the UK’, but this quintessential English town is now peppered with international cuisine.
My travel is always fuelled by food, local markets, and my love of mingling with locals.
I’m looking forward to sharing my exciting 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? And travel companions to keep me 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. His photos are often featured here on my blog and my social media.
I’m looking forward to sharing the best things in life with you – food – travel – exploring the world!
