I’m Adrienne Smith. And after seven years in New York City, my partner in crime Joe and I found ourselves in a unique position: we both had jobs that could be done anywhere. Joe, as an iOS developer for the remote-first company BeerMenus. Myself, working independently as a marketing and content strategy consultant.
So We Decided To Hit The Road
Becoming digital nomads — or, people who work remotely from anywhere — took almost six months. Packing up our Brooklyn apartment. Gearing up my new gig. Saying good-bye to friends and family. Deciding where to travel to first.
We finally got started in July 2017. For now, we’re spending about a month in each new place and slowly driving from Montreal down to New Orleans. Who knows where we’ll go after that?
I’m Documenting Our Culinary Adventures Along The Way
Traveling Appetites came about as a method of documenting our new life for friends and family. Plus, I’m a writer and content strategist. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at sharing my own stories, in addition to helping brands share theirs.
Food has always guided our travels, and this new life as digital nomads is no different. I’ll share the culinary adventures that shape my nomad experience: the local food histories, the neighborhood farmers’ markets, standout discoveries, and the recipes these travels inspire.
