About MeHello, my name is Erica Gott, and I am traveling the world as a nomad for a year (or more) so that I can meet new people, see new places, and eat new foods. My passion has always been about eating good foods. Now I am following my dream of finding traditional foods all over the world. I’ll be writing posts from each place I visit, comparing the foods I find with the foods I grew up with in the United States. Subscribe to my blog and follow me around the world. Ask questions and I will do my best to answer them. This is going to be an exciting year!
