Hello Fellow Wanderlusters
Below is the first blog post I ever wrote. At the time, EatWalkLearn was called Chris & Steve’s Love, Chocolate and Wine World Tour. Times, they have a’changed. I married the boyfriend, retired from Pearson, and launched EatWalkLearn full time.
I’ve now added up fifty-five countries, many of which are blogged here, and my next adventure will take me to South America. I have become a published author, a recognized speaker, and a trusted guide. I launched a second blog, www.DenverByFoot.com, and I’m on social media everywhere as @eatwalklearn and @denverbyfoot. I tell stories about my travels, provide trip hints, and discover great vegetarian/pescatarian eats. People join me on my walking vacations.
Thank you everyone for the adventure and support. Enjoy my first blog post below. It’s kinda cute. 🙂

Blame It on Grandmother
It’s my Grandmother’s fault. Or it might even be my Great Grandmother’s fault. But regardless, I’m at least a third-generation Wanderluster who finds sitting still too boring and the world too amazing.
As a kid, my parents dragged my sister and I through the United States in the back seat of the Car du Jour. With the middle line drawn on the seat with yarn, my sister looked to the right, I looked to the left, and together we learned to love traveling.
By the time I reached college, I had enjoyed thirty-seven united states. After college, the number climbed to forty-seven, and I picked up the last three in my mid-twenties. Add in seventeen countries and I’ve just about totaled my destinations. Time, money and priorities hampered travel for a while, but never again.
Now, work sandwiches my travel time to a few weeks each summer. No worries, I’ll make the best of it! Next stop is western Eastern Europe. As I plan for this trip, I will blog my thoughts, ask for tips from my friends, and put together a fabulous memory. My boyfriend, no travel neophyte himself, will join me on this adventure. Thus, Chris and Steve’s Love, Chocolate and Wine World Tour begins. Please come join us!
