The name of my site is from a line in Ernest Hemingway’s “A Moveable Feast,” one of the most important novels I’ve ever read. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in my life, and it was always the simple joy of food and exploration that have re-centered me.

I intend for this to be a simple forum for presenting my love for food and travel. I only hope to inspire others how I’ve been inspired.

Life is short. Make sure to see and taste as much as possible before it’s over.

I was born and raised in Delaware, moved to D.C. after college, and now live in Beijing China.
