Spent the weekend redoing the shop. These are full of artwork I designed, in the form of hand-drawn maps of food. With posters, tote bags, and t-shirts, I'm super excited to share, since it is at the intersection of many things I love: art, typography, food, and travel. <3

Great food and lovely people at a new restaurant in Montreal.
A new restaurant in Montreal serves up a tasty ode to the love story of its owners, a Venezuelan-Vietnamese couple. Arepas, banh mi, bun bowls - and coffee!

Great post from +Shannon O'Donnell, about the Masaai and responsible tourism in East Africa.
Should you visit the Maasai of East Africa? This visionary Maasai chief is rewriting the tourist/Maasai dynamic with responsible tourism & social enterprise.

Apparently my new name is Juana :)
I've got a new nickname for my time in Oaxaca, given to me by an elderly taxi driver on the way into town.

A little levity for your Tuesday. Ants in my pants, mistakenly asking to copulate with a bus, and more in my latest post.
Strange animal attacks, terrible translation mistakes, and other embarrassing travel stories from years of roaming the world.

Updated post on where to eat cheaply in New York, whether you're gluten free (or a celiac like me) or not. 12 new restaurants at the bottom of the post! 22 in all :-)
If you are a celiac or just eating gluten free in NYC, here is a post rounding up my favorite places to dine in town, from tacos to sushi and much more.

Where to eat in Austin, Texas! I spent my first visit to the city trying as many restaurants as my stomach would allow :-)
Gluten free Austin guide from my visit in town -- BBQ and ribs, to sushi, and so much more. Includes recommendations for rooftop drinks at the end.

A history of clothing tags. Definitely learned something new from this piece!
We wear clothes with clothing tags pretty much daily, but never think about it. Where did they come from? Credit two major forces: Unions and regulators.

Interesting read about how breakfast came about in North America, specifically in USA.
Do you think breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Then you fell for an ad campaign designed in 1944 to sell more cereal.

No, you should NOT cancel your trip to Europe because of the recent attacks in Belgium. Don't stop traveling because of fear.
Acting out of fear to stop traveling is not the answer. Calculated risk-taking is important, and seeing the world is worth the risk.

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.
