Travels of Yum?

So what’s the deal with the weird blog name?

Machu Picchu, Peru

Fog finally lifting at Machu Picchu, Peru

First of all, it’s a mash-up of our last names. I had half-jokingly proposed this name to Jason when we were talking about whether I would take his last name when we got married. He didn’t buy it. “We can name our child, Tom” I pointed out. He still didn’t buy it. So I’ve decided to immortalize this awesome gem of a surname through our travel blog.

Second, we LOVE to eat. Especially when we travel. I have to admit, we have planned travel destinations based purely on food. So what better way to combine our two loves of traveling and eating?

Ceviche stall food (Lima, Peru)

The best ceviche we had in Lima, Peru, tucked away in a little food stall in the Barranco district.

Spicy pork & banchan (Jeju Island, South Korea)

Hope you enjoy reading about our adventures in travel and eating.

      • Jennifer and Jason:
        Thanks for the reply. Are you still in coast of Columbia ?
        Is it better and more beautiful over there…? Have both of you recovered from the bed bugs… It remind us those bugs when we were boy in China.
        Have fun and safe trip…

  3. It is good to review some of your comment of the food in Colombia… Yes the soup look good and yummy… Have you learn how to make them ? It is good to ask the chef once you taste the good one… It will be marvelous experience if you learn them and the recipe at the same time to have fun trip… Would you agree ? It will bring some things interesting on your travel daily notes and good memory when you review them again after the end of the yummy tour…
    Have delicious dish when you have fun on the road… be safe and happy also…
