Maybe travel was always in my blood.  I was born in Tunisia, lived in Paris during my first few months on this earth, then raised in Seattle, WA.  Ever since my first trip to Rome when I was 12 years old, I knew the big city was for me.  I packed up my bags and went across the country to college in New York, spent the following two years studying in Paris, and now find myself back in the Pacific Northwest.  I will find any excuse to travel and love to spend a long time in one place, really getting to know it. My other passions include music (playing the piano and flute), cooking, and languages. This blog highlights all my favorite places, as well as my recipes, restaurants, and anything else that makes me smile.

I also write about North African food over at Our Tunisian Table and share my Seattle favorites on Spotted by Locals.


  1. Thanks! I just approved your blog claim. Now your Urbanspoon profile picture is displayed on your blog page. You can upload a blog-specific photo if you prefer, and can change a few other blog settings there. Also, if you vote for a restaurant that you've reviewed on your blog, we now show your vote next to your post everywhere on our site.




  2. Hi,

    I've added a new feature so you can publish your blog posts on Urbanspoon yourself! Next time you post a review, give it a try. Here's how:

    - Make sure you're signed into Urbanspoon.
    - Go to your Urbanspoon blog page (not your user profile): http://www.urbanspoon.com/br/1/7633/Seattle/Wandering-Voyager.html
    - Click "Edit blog settings".
    - In the Pending Posts section, click "Edit and publish my pending posts".
    - Then, enter the "snippet" text, verify the date and URL, and press Publish.

    Please make sure that:
    - The URL should be the permalink to the blog post (not the blog home page, a post preview, or a service like feedproxy).
    - The snippet should be 2-3 sentences (quoted from your blog post) that gives an idea of what's in the post.
    - The snippet should NOT include bylines, dates, address info, captions, tags, HTML code, etc.

    Note: there may be a delay of 1-2 hours after you post on your blog until our system detects the post.

    We'll give you one week to do it yourself, then it'll go into our queue to publish.

    Thank you for all of your contributions, and let us know if you have any questions.




  3. Greetings from Europe! I love your blog. I work for Lime&Tonic and we are in the works of expanding in the US. We are now looking for bloggers in the Seattle area. I was wondering if you might be interested in working with a few paid assignments with us. Feel free to email me back and let me know if this is something you might be interested in.

    I look forward to your response!
