As we say goodbye to 2018 with gratitude, we welcome the new year with humility and anticipation.
Mike and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining us on our Gastronomad Experiences, whether you join us in real life, or in spirit.
Thank you for trusting us, for following our adventures, for breaking bread with us, for reading what we write, for visiting our websites and for signing up for our newsletters.
Our heartfelt thanks to you for sharing your homes and lives with us when we visit you, for your support, for teaching us, believing in us and for staying connected with us. We appreciate you, your friendship and your love deeply.
As we embrace the new year, we look forward to twelve more months of Gastronomad adventures while striving to make magic every day.
To travel is to live. And to live is to travel.
Living fully, big and deeply, with purpose, meaning, intention, gratitude and joy as we traverse this beautiful world tasting the most delicious food, drinking the most exquisite wine, gathering with the most devoted foodies while learning from the most visionary artisans, wine makers and chefs is what Gastronomad living is all about.
When we open our minds and our hearts embracing everyone as the same, we can see the beauty in every person. A warm heart helps us appreciate our differences as much as our similarities.
Our path must be about more than just tolerance but also about respect and appreciation for each person we encounter. When we see the beauty present in others, what we see is the beauty of humanity itself.
Genuine human connection is what makes The Gastronomad Experiences what they are. True respect for other cultures and their traditions is what drives us.
We don’t want to change the world. We want the world to change us.
Our love for sharing with you the lessons we’ve learned, the wisdom we’ve gained and the friendships we’ve formed, in the now 13 years exploring this stunning world is why we want to keep roaming until the end of our days.
Happy New Year dearest friends! May you enjoy a glorious 2019 surrounded by loving friends and family.
Wishing you a fulfilling and meaningful year. May you enjoy profound peace, radiant health, boundless prosperity and unforgettable Gastronomad adventures with delicious food and abundance of joy and magic. - Amira
