 Lori and Angelo of Travlinmad -- travel writers and digital storytellers. We travel the world for local foods, flavors, and the authentic culture behind it all - because  food is one of the biggest expressions of a culture. Food is life! It reflects our values, environment, and our cultural heritage. Traditional food and culture is passed down from one generation to the next, and it's always a treat (and an honor) when we get to explore that connection, whether it's in our own city or half way around the world! We share immersive, slow travel and food experiences to inspire you to travel more and make those connections.

Lori started Travlinmad in 2008 as a way to stay in touch with family when there were only internet cafes in faraway places and occasional wi-fi. Over time - like life and good wine - Travlinmad has evolved into our full-time passion, a travel website and blog with food and travel guides, itineraries, and enough eye candy to ignite the spark for your own travel.
