Global Grazers is a globe trotting American family of six, currently living in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.  We’ve been travelling since our eldest daughter, Rachel, was only one year old, and we’re still together, sharing and enjoying our journeys!

In our earlier days, some of our voyages were a bit extreme.  (Our eldest son was born during a six mont stint in a five-star hotel in New Delhi.)  Since then, we’ve learned to tone things down a bit.  Nonetheless, we’re still on the road and loving every minute of it.

We enjoy experiencing the world’s sights, scenes and cultures together, and are all opinionated foodies.  When we’re at home, we can usually be found around our terrace table dreaming up our next adventure (or our next recipe) over a home-cooked meal.

We hope that sharing our experiences will inspire other families to dream and to share our planet’s beauty together or, at least, try a new recipe or two.

Opinions expressed in this blog are entirely our own. We have not been paid, nor have we recieved complimentary goods or services from anyone. However, should we ever receive such goods or services, full disclosure will be made at the bottom of the post.

    • Thanks so much Jolene! We’re delighted to have you on board. West Africa is a beautiful place to visit. So, I hope we inspire you to make the trip out here one of these days!

  2. Thanks for liking my post on graffiti art. How lovely you have a chance to live in Africa–so much to find out about their culture and the landscape. I’ll be back. Please drop by again.

  7. Hello Jeanette,

    • Thank you so much. Your comment has really touched me — as did your beautiful country. My eldest son was born in Delhi. So, in some small way, I feel like the land is a part of me too:-)

      • Good morning Subhan. Please accept my apologies. I was still mentally “stuck” on yesterday’s ginger tea:-). Indonesia is a country I’ve always dreamed of visiting! I’ve discovered so many wonderful Indonesian bloggers here on WordPress who have all started unfolding the rich history, culture, cuisine and terrain of your beautiful nation for me. I hope to be able to plan a trip there before long and that you’ll be willing to make some suggestions about where to go and what to do and see:-)

  8. Hi Jeanette. That’s quite alright. No worries. 🙂

    I am a happy and proud Indonesian, yes, that’s true, and that is why I would encourage you to visit the country at your convenience. I however do not blog about the country because the blog is a place for me to primarily showcase my poems and short stories, which are aimed at inspiring the mind and igniting the light of the soul.

    There are two Indonesian bloggers who blog about the country that you might be interested in visiting. One primarily blogs about traveling:
    http://chris13jkt.wordpress.com, and the other blogs about anything related to Indonesia: landscapes, food, music, people, buildings, etc.: http://sigoese.wordpress.com/. Or perhaps you know them already?

    Please let me know when you are planning to visit the country. I shall be happy to recommend you a place or two to visit. 🙂

    Subhan Zein

  9. Hey Jeanette,
    It is wonderful you and your family can travel around this big blue circle in space. Hope you guys are always safe though. Lots of people out there who don’t care about others.

    Thanks for stopping by and viewing Savor the Food. I appreciate your comments and readership.

    Look forward to what you and your family have to post about the adventures you all encounter.
