Im from south-east London, UK, and I moved to Bogotá, Colombia in October 2013 for reasons of the heart During the first month or so in Bogotá, I felt completely disorientated and overwhelmed in the city; I wish Id had a Bogotá handbook. So once I was more or less settled in, I decided to start a blog about life in Bogota, about customs, difficulties I have faced, things Ive noticed, and am offering up a few tips which I definitely would have found useful in the beginning! As time has gone by, I've also found myself exploring themes such as identity struggles and culture shock...which are inevitably intertwined with the experiences which come with moving to a new country.

Flavors of Bogota is the chronicle of my discoveries here in Bogota and Latin America in general. As a food and travel writer, I%u2019m always meeting chefs, restaurant owners, writers and editors who all have their fascinating stories. I%u2019m involved in food events, restaurant openings and trends in Colombia and I love to share those experiences. Traveling as a travel writer is quite different than as a tourist, and I share that perspective.
