Wide Angle Adventure
I write unvarnished opinions about all the destinations we visit – the fabulous, the good and the mediocre – and back them up with detailed descriptions and lots of photos. The idea is to give you the information you need to determine if a destination is right for you.
Destination pages identify highlights and provide interactive maps and links to posts related to a particular trip. Trips are chronicled day-by-day, with information about activities and logistics to give you a realistic perspective on traveling in a country or hiking a particular trail.
Cooking in Tongues
In 2010 I started Cooking in Tongues, a travel blog focused on food and language learning. My interests and what I post about expanded over the years so in 2019 I re-launched the blog as Wide Angle Adventure. All the information and recipes in the old Cooking in Tongues can be found here. I hope the new layout will make it easier to navigate the site and find what you are looking for.
Who am I?
My first career, one in which I quickly lost interest, was as a CPA. I next flirted with culinary school and landscape design before earning a masters in teaching English as a second language. I taught English in both in the US and China and language learning remains one of my passions.
In 2012-2013 we spent a year in the South of France where, aside from the expected partaking of food, wine, language and culture, we discovered France’s extensive network of hiking trails, many of which you will find documented on this site.
In recent years we’ve added multi-day treks and diving to our travel itineraries.
