We did a simple exercise of listing all the things that make us happy. We excluded the 9 to 5 jobs,the commute and all the day-to-day routine and we were left with a list of true passions, things that are real treats and the ones that become life long memories. Surprisingly enough, top of the list came travelling, going out and enjoying fine wine and good food. They all come together really and it’s not even right mentioning them separately, we needed a name to capture it all – and that is how globetrotting foodies came to life.
We travel (sometimes not very far) either together or separate, we discover quirky places with food for soul and wine for mind and we tell you about it since we don’t want to keep it all to ourselves.
Reading is currently our home, Newbury is our job, London is our weekend retreat and the rest of the world is ours to explore. You will hear from us about undiscovered food places, food markets, unique bars and we’ll have (cool) pictures to prove it :).

Restless mind, dreamy eyes, traveler’s heart and tappy-happy feet, hey its me Deepthi here 🙂 . I love long drives, lazy evenings with friends, coffee and new found love – macro photography!
WHY A FOOD BLOG?
I have always loved my day job but had always felt the need to start up something creative, basically something which would be keep me occupied fully. Writing is my passion, travelling makes me happy and food never lets me down and so combining them all together I knew what I wanted to do! Voilà, there it was, a decision to start with my good friend and colleague Daniela, a blog where we could talk about food, write about food, share stories and experiences involving our travel in search of good food.
Trotter – Daniela
Hi, I’m Daniela 🙂 Nice to make your acquaintance! I love to know things and I’m curious about it all. I love to travel (often alone) and sometimes I can feel the little wheels in my mind putting puzzles together and absorbing the world around me like a sponge.
New hobby – photography, old habit – spending time in quirky restaurants (especially if they have a hidden little garden). Same applies for pubs/bars and terraces. Globetrotting foodies came naturally as a dear project; it’s only been a second from the moment I was talking to Deepthi at work about a pastime that would really give us the chance to use our creative side until the time that the food blog came to mind. It was the most heartfelt “Yes!” I ever said.
This is the space where everything is as it’s supposed to: delicious, fun and sociable!
