Welcome to World Oyster

The world is my oyster, and I do love oysters.

World Oyster is dedicated to travelers and foodies, to armchair tourists and home cooks, to anyone who loves to explore. Yes, the name is quirky, but then so am I. 

My husband and I travel a lot, but because we can rarely get away for more than a week, often less, our trips tend to be intense and focused, never comprehensive but always fun. We are primarily walking tourists, preferring to experience a destination on foot when possible. We love culture, history, and fine dining. Give us an art museum over an amusement park. Usually. After all, I’m always in search of the iconic experience or photo wherever we go.

Please join me in the world of travel and food. I will take you with me to the sights, hotels, and restaurants I discover. After all, since World Oyster is dedicated to travelers and foodies, you’ll have a lot to explore.
