One of the temples in Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Grounded in the logic of numbers, lost in the beauty of words and on a mission to find her hakuna matata.
Hi 🙂 I’m Andrea, the human behind the blog.
When I was 17 years old, I started blogging because I wanted to be a food&travel blogger and to write about my adventures around the world. 6 years later, I still love food culture and travelling, but I want to use the power of the internet to do more than to run a website that is all about me.
I stopped writing for awhile because I was trying to find my reason for running the website. I’m still passionate about food culture but I felt that I wasn’t adding any value considering how many food&travel websites there are… and I certainly wasn’t helping anyone who really needed help. I struggled to decide on what I wanted to write about because they were just so many things that I felt passionate about. Perhaps I’ll find a niche in future, but for now, I’m going to keep this website as a space for all the things that I’m passionate about rather than having to choose between the different causes I feel for.
Some topics you’ll see popping up include:
- Food (Culture, heritage, stories and the like)
- Sustainability (Food sustainability, farming, tips etc)
- Mental Health (Resources, interviews, initiatives)
- Other social causes (The homeless, elderly, low-income and more)
I chose She Roams the World because I wanted to emphasise the importance (and also fun) of being on the ground… where you learn and experience more and also get to engage in spontaneous and genuine conversations with people that you meet along the way.
I’m not quite sure what kind of website category I fall under, but the label doesn’t really matter to me. All I hope is to be able to create change whether by simply raising awareness or starting a sustainable initiative through this website.
So thank you for being curious enough to read the “About Me” page and I welcome you to join me as I document stories of the people, advocate for social causes and write about food culture in between attempts to balance work and play!
