Interesting read on the death of paid media and the 2016 concept of what it means to be an 'influencer'.
Okay… let's get back to business for a minute. Today's topic: the ethics of paying influencers. Buzzword Bingo: is “influencer” even a credible term? Note: When I use the term influencer, assume that I mean “influencer” (with conspicuous quotation marks). I am not a fan of the term and would ...

In 2011, I interviewed Mrs. Pa, my favourite smoothie maker in Chiang Mai, for +CNN. In the years since, I have returned to her cart year after year. I had a bunch of questions about how she runs her stall, and the effects of the article on her business, and happily she sat down with me again to talk about her life and work and that infectious smile.  
Mrs. Pa's remains the best smoothie cart in Chiang Mai. A follow up piece 4 years after my initial story about her to talk about her life & business.

My year in review: 25 photos from around the world in 2015. Portugal, New Zealand, Canada, United States, and Thailand. It was a very tough year for personal reasons but I am grateful to have seen all these beautiful places (the highs) despite some lows.

I hope you enjoy!

Ever wondered where the chilies you eat come from? The answer is initially Mesoamerica (now known as Mexico and parts of Central America). In this post I trace their spread and around the globe via Portuguese trade routes in the 1500s and onward. I loved researching and writing the piece and I hope you like it too!

I have celiac disease, and it is something I have not written too much about over the years, but have started to put together guides for fellow celiacs who want to travel, because it can be such a pain point when you are afraid of getting sick. Japan was one of the toughest countries to travel to as someone who cannot eat gluten, since gluten is EVERYWHERE there. 

This is my long gluten free Japan guide, along with a Japanese gluten free translation card that I built myself in order to make this kind of trip easier for people with the same disease. <3

Eating in Japan was not easy as a celiac. I put together this gluten free Japan post, with a translation card in Japanese, to help others who want to visit.

Jar Jar is a Sith Lord and other alternative Star Wars theories
With the new Star Wars movie only a couple weeks away, fans and Star Wars scholars have gone into hyperdrive1 spinning alternate theories about what the series of movies are all about. The most popular such theory attempts to rehabilitate the worst character in the prequels, Jar Jar Binks. Because maybe he's the most powerful Sith Lord in the galaxy? Who uses drunken fighting like Jackie Chan?

Story
Tagline
Former lawyer currently eating my way around the world, one bowl of soup at a time.
Introduction

Originally from Montreal, I quit my job as a lawyer to travel for what I thought was a year, and more than five years later I find myself working as a full-time food and travel writer and photographer. All of the writing recently culminated in my first book, the Food Traveler’s Handbook. Since I left my job in early 2008, I've been writing about my worldwide travel, transportation misadventures and delicious food on my site, Legal Nomads.  I get the shakes when I go too long without eating sticky rice. 

Bragging rights
Been shat on by 12 birds and 1 bat since April 1, 2008.
