On Life: Take risks, leave no territory unchartered, take nothing for granted, and live each day on borrowed time. Memoirs on my blog aim to capture the essence of travel, lifestyle, dining, and entrepreneurship, as I explore the entire world with my husband and our golden-doodle.
Restaurant Reviews: Most people look for things not to like (critics), I look for things to love (fan). If I've written about it, I love it, and I think you will too.
I like to explore ideas and daydream about business ventures. My passion is creating, manifesting, and succeeding. I have never broken a promise to myself, which is an acquired superpower, you should try it, it's deeply gratifying.
Email me anytime for honest feedback and inquiries. I am more than happy to engage.
I've eaten at many of the World's Best Restaurants and have spent time exploring 7 of 7 continents including Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, Central America, North America, South America and remote destinations like Bora Bora, BVI and the Yukon Territory. I do this because I love learning about cultures and ecosystems through gastronomy, purveyors and first-hand research. My husband and I have achieved our lifetime goal of seeing the entire world broadly speaking, and now are circling back to backfill specific destinations on each hemisphere. We've traveled the world 6.1 times over as of July 2021, but have barely made a dent. There's still so much to explore, and it's all just on borrowed time. There is no hard end-date for an entrepreneur, so hosting mini-celebrations along the way (thank you Tim Ferris, The 4 Hour Work Week) has been my way to keep my sanity, and live for something more than just my "work". In my spare time, I do like to found and design new businesses that help keep us active, young, and feeling our best.
On the topic of exploration, we are so dedicated to travel and cuisine, that we published our own book "The Wanderer's Compass : Definitive Guide to International Travel" which is a compilation of our travel hacks, tricks and best practices of over a decade. Our book is available for purchase on Amazon. We are so committed to holistic wellness, that we founded 3 Medical Businesses in the last 7 years. These businesses allow us the flexibility to travel the world and support charitable causes around the globe.
We are serial entrepreneurs, husband and wife ~ Erin & Brandon of @e.b.woodward. Throughout 2017, we served as Tastemakers for The World's 50 Best Restaurants traveling with famous chefs across six continents! We were nominated as a top 8 travel and international influencer by the UK Blog Awards in 2018. We elected to retire our Tastemaker role in 2018 and have since become drastically more involved across the globe with measurable impact, changing lives in both the culinary world and medical sector in a variety of ways. Anonymously eating our way through Asia in 2018 allowed us to reclaim our privacy, not to mention we have a "pay it forward" mentality, and there's plenty of room for success in life in general.
Every trip we book starts with deciding where we want to eat and then details evolve from there. We prefer 30-45 day sabbaticals annually to places like South America and Vail Valley. In 2019, we completed a 30 day sabbatical to Antartica + Patagonia in addition to week long excursions in Vail, London, NYC, Turks & Caicos, Chicago & Hollywood. In 2021, we spent 35 consecutive days recharging our collective battery on the ski slopes. Our commitment to one another is to never stop exploring.
We're happy to share our insights about destination planning and cuisine, business planning and entrepreneurship, risk assessment and lifestyle pursuits, so please contact us at anytime. Thanks for visiting.
