About Me

Hi! I’m Amber. I love being with my family and friends, I love food and wine, and I love to travel. My blog is about all of these things.

I live in a small seaside town on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia, with my two children, Keely (9) and Benji (7). My husband Reece and I have recently separated, but we still spend lots of time together for the kids. We’ve travelled all over SA; from the Flinders Rangers in the Mid North, Eyre Peninsula on the West Coast, and the Fleurieu Peninsula in the South, to the Barossa, Clare Valley, and the Riverland, and loads of places in between!

I am studying for a Masters Degree in Gastronomic Tourism with Southern Cross University and Le Cordon Bleu. When I tell people what I’m studying, they always ask “Oh, whats that?”. The next question is usually “What can you do when you’re finished?”. My first answer is easy: “Its about food, wine and travel, three of my favourite things!”.

The answer to the other question isn’t quite so clear cut. What can someone with a Masters Degree in Gastronomic Tourism be when they grow up, or in my case as a more mature-aged student, do as a job when they have finished their study? Southern Cross Uni suggests potential career pathways could include: Professional food writer/reviewer, cellar-door manager, food trail operator/tour guide, entrepreneur in a food-and-wine-related business or food and/or wine festival organiser/consultant.

I have no idea at this stage where this study will lead me. But I’m not worried, I am simply doing it because I love food, and I love to travel. And I am loving studying it!

I hope you enjoy reading my blog about food, family and travelling. Please feel free to get in touch via the ‘Contact Me’ form, or leave a comment.

Eat Well. Travel Often.
