We're Lori and Angelo of Travlinmad -- travel writers, content creators, and digital storytellers. We travel the world for local foods, flavors, and the authentic culture behind it all - because food is one of the biggest expressions of a culture. Food is life! It reflects our values, environment, and our cultural heritage. Traditional food and culture is passed down from one generation to the next, and it's always a treat when we get to share in that connection, whether it's in our own city or half way around the world! We share immersive, slow travel and food experiences to inspire you to travel more and make those connections. Follow us on social @Travlinmad.
Lori is Travlinmad's editor and photographer who caught the photography bug as a kid, and started traveling soon thereafter, a combination that eventually led to her career in tourism and destination marketing. She hails from New Jersey and loves Bruce Springsteen and fresh Jersey tomatoes and strawberries. She loves to cook & eat (Italian and Thai are her faves), drink red wine and tequila, listen to loud music, and be at the ocean. She loves farm- and sea-to-table food experiences, unique food tours, and photographing the colors and textures of the places she visits.

Most Amazing Travel Experience So Far? That time they helped rescue spider monkeys in Costa Rica!
Angelo is our writer and business guy, whose prior career was in aviation, anthropology, and air traffic control - even if it was interrupted for a decade - but that defining moment led him to meet Lori and finish graduate school. Originally from eastern Pennsylvania, he grew up eating scrapple, steak sandwiches and Yocco's hot dogs, and he still does. He's a U.S. Marine and a Parrothead who loves boats, airplanes, and yoga, and it was his first trip to Italy where his love of food and wine lit a spark for baking and now there's always bread and pastry around!
What’s still on our bucket list?
More Mexico.....More Indonesia.....More Europe.....Always Italy.....and Angelo really wants to see the Aurora Borealis. ;-)
