Chantell is a recovering lawyer, playwright, poet, sometimes singer, gourmet food preparer and eater, artist and art collector who has been trailing her executive spouse across borders for the last 5 years. As the Founder and Editor-In-Chief of ThingsToEatAndDo.com she felt there had to be a better way to research great food and fun without the hunting and pecking she was doing through the “wisdom of the masses” on traditional review sites. Turns out the masses aren’t so wise all the time. How could you get a group of sophisticated, but not pretentious; fun-loving but not juvenile, adventurous but not crazy, great group of people to curate your travel experience? By starting ThingsToEatAndDo.com it turns out. Chantell will be writing on her travels with kids and without, in and around her current hometown and abroad.
She is a culture vulture and will find the music, visual art and history everywhere she goes.
She knows where you can get free wine at hotels and the best back bar taco for $3 at 4 am in New Orleans. And she is irreverent as hell. So if you are easily offended, are bothered by sexual innuendo or profanity-you are probably in the wrong place.
