Standing among some rock piles in Iceland, 2017.

Hello! My name is Ryan. I love to travel, I love to eat, and I enjoy writing and talking about it both of those things.  I currently live in Philadelphia with my girlfriend Kaitie and my rescue French Bulldog Rocky.

This blog is here to serve as a record of my trips and as something to let me write about the two things I love doing most.  I’ll try to give some tips and other information along the way, as well as some insight into what’s worked for me while traveling.  I’ll definitely be writing about places I ate, because that’s the whole point, isn’t it?

I am by no means an expert on any locations, nor do I claim to be.  The closest I can get to expert level is probably Philadelphia, since I’ve lived here for the last 10 years, but even then there are people who know way more about the city than I do.

I’m just doing this for the love of the game, so come along and join me on the journey.

Throughout the blog, I will mostly reference two people, which I will explain here so I don’t have to write it out every time.  LeeAnne is my good friend, travel buddy, and ex-wife, who I traveled with quite a bit, so she will get a lot of mentions (she also took 99% of the pictures on our trips).  Kaitie is my current girlfriend, and we’ve got a lot of plans for traveling to do, so she will be mentioned quite a bit as well.
