As a travel writer, Kate has been wine tasting in Bordeaux, salmon fishing in Alaska, wildlife searching (and wine tasting) in South Australia, snorkeling in Hawaii and Turks & Caicos, film-festing in Toronto, working on a cattle ranch (and wine tasting…are you sensing a pattern yet?) in Napa Valley, skiing in Whistler, cave diving in Riviera Maya, and exploring, mostly by way of food, cities like Istanbul, Vancouver, Portland, Seattle, New Orleans, Philly, Tuscany, Denver, Dallas/Fort Worth, Baltimore and many towns in the Mid-Atlantic, all in the name of journalism.
