I’ve had the opportunity to do a lot of really fun, cool things since I began my food blog but there hasn’t been a ton of travel blogging. It’s an idea I’ve thought about on and off over the years because traveling is my other big obsession after food. If I could afford to travel more often, I definitely would. But it has been difficult since changing career paths. Not only is money a bit more tight than it used to be but when I go on vacation, I’m not earning a living. It’s the main downside to being self employed, as far as I’m concerned.
When I was first contacted last year about spending a weekend at The Melrose Georgetown Hotel and dining at their restaurant Jardenea, I was caught off guard. DC is filled with restaurant bloggers and reviewers but I’m not technically one of them. I come up with recipes and I take pictures of food. Was it ok to switch things up?
