The Creation of the Traveling Gingerbread

In Tokyo, we smiled every time we saw someone talking on their large, animated phone case. We had to buy one. Having an obsolete IPhone 5, the selection was limited. We purchased a gingerbread off a neglected rack in Shinjuku, Tokyo and The Traveling Gingerbread was born. You can purchase your own gingerbread friend here!

The Traveling Gingerbread is an entertaining account of our travels, fun facts, and tips we learned along the way.

About Us

My husband, Mitch, and I have been traveling together over 6 years and so far have explored 17 countries. Living and working full-time in Pittsburgh, PA, we travel as much as our vacation days and finances allow. We cram each adventure with activities, tours,  and experiences to maximize our time. We always try to visit to a local brewery and can’t walk by an Irish pub without stopping in for a pint of Guinness.

We enjoy the outdoors and are avid mini golfers. Dumplings are our favorite food. Most nights we cook dinner together and enjoy experimenting with new flavors or cuisines. So far most have been successful, except the enchilada incident of 2016. We try but cannot keep up with the continuous stream of new restaurants and breweries, concerts, sporting events, festivals, and outdoor events in Pittsburgh.

Our new challenge: visit all 50 of the United States together before reaching the age 50.


I love running and have completed a full and many half marathons. I also actively practice yoga and recently started spinning. After a day of managing the digital and technology needs in a commercial real estate office, I spend many evenings curled up on the couch with a cup of tea and a good book, researching our next adventure, or crafting. 


Mitch plays on a hockey team and is a born and raised Pittsburgh sports fan. Per his wishes, our wedding colors were black and the Pittsburgh Penguins’ gold. He is a movie buff of all genres and I can no longer watch a movie without commenting on the cinematography, transitions, or length of single shots. In addition to his 9-5 job as a Multimedia Production Manager, Mitch does freelance video producing, editing, directing and if asked nicely, photography.
