Welcome to HungrytoTravel! I’m Becca – Becs, Beck, Rebecca to my friends. I am an Accountant by day and get my creative juices going as blogger by night.
I was born and bred in the Charlotte area. I went to UNC-Wilmington and studied Accounting and came back to Charlotte after college. My husband and I met in Uptown Charlotte at Alive After 5 through a mutual friend. We lived in 4th Ward in Uptown Charlotte for 6 years. Despite growing up in this area, the city has grown and changed so much that we are kept plenty busy exploring what the city has to offer and trying new restaurants and breweries.
We recently moved to the Lake Norman area to be closer to where we work. We miss living in the city but feel that we get the best of both worlds now as we go into Charlotte quite frequently for food, activities and working out with friends.
My favorite things include photography and all things dessert, food, travel and fun. Did I mention dessert?!
My Inspiration: A gift from my grandparents
My love and interest in traveling developed at an early age. I remember vividly the foreign currency my globetrotting grandparents would bring back from their travels. The colorful — and sometimes tiny, sometimes huge and usually colorful — foreign dollars and coins told so many stories of exciting adventures, interesting people, and exotic lands. I continue to draw inspiration from these dollars and coins, which I have happily added to, as I travel the world and carry on the tradition.
This blog lets me share my loves.
As a proud foodie and avid explorer of any restaurant that might offer a bite of something unique, tasty, and proudly crafted, I created this blog to share my journey and culinary critique with the world.
My busy lifestyle leaves me very little time for cooking and I cannot stand the process of spending so much time prepping and cooking for the dish to taste just okay. So I’ve included a few of my go-to easy recipes for all the busy mum’s, 9 to 5er’s, or any other busy bees out there!
