COVID-19 put our travel plans on a temporary hold. To combat a lack of content, Sandy introduced readers to notable chefs and some of their amazing recipes. Visitors to TheTravelingBornsteins site can hopscotch from one region to another by trying a variety of recipes and also learning about notable chefs and restaurant owners. Food is often Sandy and Ira’s gateway to unfamiliar cultures. The CHEF & RECIPE and the FOOD, WINE, AND BEVERAGE categories will be the place to find these tasty morsels of information.
If you are a traveler looking for ideas, pick a category and then scroll through the PDF versions of Sandy’s published stories. Each story will inspire you to learn more about a destination because Sandy shares her personal insights about a destination rather than repurposing other people’s words. Since pictures can frequently be more convincing, take a quick peek at the photo section.
Editors and destination representatives can also check out Sandy’s stories on this page and our images on the Travel Photos page. These stories and images showcase The Traveling Bornsteins worldwide travel experiences as well as Sandy’s award-winning NATJA stories.
Last summer, Sandy and Ira took a couple of pandemic road trips that aligned with their comfort zone. However, their lives were turned upside down in late July after Ira was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer. For approximately five months, this website was dormant.
In 2021, the Bornsteins look forward to traveling again. These upcoming stories will focus on the importance of embracing life when faced with an incurable cancer diagnosis. Please join us on this emotional journey.
