About Jodi Ettenberg

Hello! My name is Jodi and I’m a former lawyer currently traveling (and eating) my way around the world, one country at a time. I don’t tend to have a set plan or bucket list of things I want to see or place I need to enjoy. Instead, I’ve found myself organically moving from one place to the next based on a food recommendation or a fellow traveler’s enthusiasm for a city somewhere far away. It’s meant that my travels have had a flow to them, linked by common connections and shared meals.
