About Amber & “The Husband”
I am a recovering tax attorney from the largest law firm in the world and am trying to eat my way around the globe. As a professional eater, I travel throughout the world in search of great eats, amazing wines, and unique experiences, all while traveling With Husband In Tow. I encourage others to do the same, exploring the world through food and travel.
With over 70 countries and counting, I travel With Husband In Tow. Together, we are seeking new Adventures in Food as we travel on our stomachs. In this food and travel blog we share tips and advice on culinary vacations, foodie vacations, cooking classes, and more.
Before Our Food Adventure Began
Ah, we were oh so young. Eric and I met in college, back at Rutgers in 1997. I traveled a bit before we met, but some of our earliest conversations could have been the focus of a Bon Jovi ballad – we wanted to escape New Jersey and to explore. Back then, we both wanted to move to California, it was one of the few things we agreed on, as we kind of hated each other for the first six months we were dating. At the time I had no idea what a “foodie” was or that I would end up loving food travel, let alone start a food travel blog.
Instead of heading west, we moved to Washington, D.C., so I could attend law school, and after that to Chicago, for my Big Firm life. Little did we know, when we met in the nineties, that we would end up on a worldwide food tour, that never seemed to end.
Escape the Predictable Life
I didn’t hate my lawyer life at first. But, I never knew why I went to law school, or what drove me to the law, other than to make money. I heard it was lucrative. That was enough for me. Back then, there were no blogs devoted to explaining why Big Law Sucks. Now, the internet is littered with them.
Big Law just sort of sucked the life out of me. When I came down with tendonitis in 2007, a work related injury, I knew a change was needed.
It took five more years and a round the world trip to make me realize what kind of a change was needed. After ten years practicing law, we escaped, just like we said we would back in 1997. Instead of playing volleyball on the beach in California, though, we alternated between a semi-nomadic life, with a series of home bases. We lived in Bali, and lived in Bangkok.
Even during our time living in Southeast Asia, we kept exploring the world, with one food trip after another. We took cooking classes, and culinary tours. We visited every winery we could. And, enjoyed the luxury life in Southeast Asia. All the while never regretting the decision we made to escape the predictable life we left behind.
The Food & Travel Life
I am now a recovering tax attorney, professional eater, writer, and social media consultant, and Eric and I work together. He complains he is no longer “in tow.” Instead, he is an integral part of the food travel blog. Even almost five years in, some days I feel we are just starting to really figure out how all of this digital nomad business works. But one thing is for certain, there is no return. In 2017, we left Southeast Asia, and left the semi-nomadic life and settled for good – in Girona, Spain! After fiver years of travel, settling down was required. But, we continue to organize a few tasty food holidays. We have plenty more food travel tales to tell.
We have two primary goals for this food travel blog: 1) to seek amazing culinary travel experiences; and 2) to share tips on how you can do the same!
Join us as we continue to seek new Adventures in Food, Wine & Luxury Travel! We will teach you how to travel the world for food!
