Hi, I’m Jennifer, the voice behind Adventurous Appetite. Originally from Florida, I started this blog after moving to Seoul to teach English in 2009. I had planned to stay only a year, but the travel bug bit me hard. I’ve since backpacked through Southeast Asia and South America, lived in Colombia, worked as a teacher and food writer in Shanghai, and now I teach Journalism to high schoolers in Bucharest.

I have an unhealthy obsession with food, and believe that it’s the gateway to understanding a culture. I’m one of those strange people who have an affinity for durian. I love noodles. And carbs of all kinds. In fact, I’m waiting for the day when scientists reveal that carbohydrates are actually a woman’s best friend. But as the years creep by, and the numbers on the scale creep up, I sadly know that’s not the case.

I cook, I travel, I teach, I eat. And sometimes I do other things. Join me as I make my way around the world.

  1. I really like your writing style, superb info, thanks for putting up :D. “He wrapped himself in quotations- as a beggar would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors.” by Rudyard Kipling.

  2. I’m inspired! I will look into teaching English in Seoul, or elsewhere abroad. You seem to be enjoying it. Great blog.
