We’re Marla and Stephanie, two friends separated by a 12 hour drive but not much else. We love food. We also love to travel. While most travel to see the sights and take in experiences, we travel for the sole purpose of stuffing ourselves silly and collecting delicious edibles to cram into our suitcases to bring home. While we joke that we’ll need to book extra seats for our return flights home, one day this will likely become reality.
I dream of selling off my belongings, heading to the airport and getting on the first plane going anywhere. Anywhere in Europe, that is. I’m fascinated with its steep history, the architecture and – of course – the food. While that’s not going to happen anytime soon, I’m happy to save my loonies (dollar coins for you non-Canadians) and visit for a week or 2 at a time. On my bucket list are Iceland, Portugal and the Adriatic Coast.
I’ve also got another food blog, A Blonde Gourmand, which can be found here.
I love to travel, if I had my way I would live in a constant state of vacation. Over the years I have been to many places covering North America, South America, Australia, Asia and now for the first time Europe. And the best parts and strongest memories are of fantastic architecture and even more fantastic, the food. I hope to one day see all the continents but am more than happy to just see more of the world.
So welcome to Book Me That Extra Seat! Here’s where you can join us on our adventures, take trips with us down memory lane – and try the recipes that our travels inspire us to prepare.
