We are Mark and Jennifer Smart.  Every day we celebrate that the universe brought us together, often through our love of eating, drinking and being married 🙂

Mark is an Aussie who has lived in various parts of the world, including the USA, Kenya, South Sudan, Liberia and Qatar (to name just a few).  He is an accomplished and talented martial artist who started at age 6 and has his own system, ‘Makoto Ryu Kempo Jutsu’, which he has taught to countless others around the world.  He’s talented at everything (Jennifer calls him ‘Superman’) and he’s also a foodie and a creative and amazing home cook. 

Jennifer, on the other hand, is not a great cook, yet recognizes when something tastes really good.  Like Mark, she started traveling in her 20’s and has been to many beautiful places in the world, and she is currently working on her first novel.  Mark has opened her mind to food, new experiences, and the pure joy of laughing, having fun and prioritizing the person you love most.

We want to share with you food, drinks, places to stay and other stuff that we think are bloody good and worth mentioning.  Otherwise, like our favorite show Seinfeld made famous, it won't be on our site and will be placed 'in the vault'.   Hope you find it worthwhile to see what we do as we live and love together.
