Looking Back ~ A Year of Food Pilgrimage Travel

Sage sets off on a Food Pilgrimage

“When I stared out the terminal window at the silver American Airlines Boeing 777 that was going to fly me non-stop to London, I gathered my thoughts and tried to conjure up a description of my career break mission. I gave up and instead just tried to picture how I would feel when I came back…I have yet to come back.”

Those are the opening lines of my story

Wow…  has it really been a full year since I quit my day job, got on a plane to Africa for a 1-month Safari and set off on my Food Pilgrimage?

If you’ve been reading my weekly Food Pilgrimage stories of travelling in pursuit of culinary bliss, you know what came next. You know it’s been an intense year of ups and downs, lessons and surprises. But so many amazing experiences have come out of it. This week, I was honored to have my story published by MeetPlanGo.

You can read it here

Thanks so much to the crew at Briefcase to Backpack for inviting me to share my “novelized” version of the story of this first year.

If you’ve ever considered traveling long term, taking a sabatical or career break, I highly recommend you bookmark B2B and subscribe to the MeetPlanGo newsletter. The resources are a veritable road map for finally taking that “journey of a lifetime”.

I hope you enjoy my story. If you like it, shoot me a comment. I’d love to hear from you. It’s Rainy and damp here in London, so I could use the lift!

All the best to everyone who has followed the adventures to this point.

Your support has made this an amazing year

    Sage, love reading about your travels. I too love food and
    learning to cook new things. If you remember, I showed you and your
    Mom how to make fajitas for your first time, once when I was
    visiting. I have applied for a renewal of my passport and hope to
    do some overseas travel too, before I’m too much older. Take care,
    Love, Lynne

    • Thanks Lynn. So nice to reminisce and think of those first food adventures.
