Wandering Soul: Denise Dube @GlobalFoodie

Years ago I took part in one of the most bizarre trips to ever come across my inbox. While the premise of the trip was confusing, as well as who exactly was sponsoring the project and what the actual project ended up being, meeting the other travel writers among the chaos is something I’ll never forget. One lady in particular was a virtual friend from a writers’ community and we met up at the beginning of the adventure at yet another bizarre venue — a tea house/foot soak shop.

Denise Dube and I bonded over chai latte and I discovered in her a kindred soul, a wanderer like myself. We kept in touch, and since that time we’ve shared many heartfelt chats and adventures that have brought us all over the world. Denise is what we call here in the Southern US “Good People”.

In Portland, Maine, my rustic suite was the place where we had an impromptu wine and cheese party. We were starving as this trip that was meant to be coverage of a charity event ended up being a group of travel writers tagging along with a film crew from California. The film crew could sustain themselves on Powerbars and gallons of water and thought we could also. Finally, at the end of the trip, we had one good meal.

The only real meal we had for days on this trip

In Saint-Tropez Denise and I met up at Chateau Messardiere and sipped on pink Champagne each evening after spending our days researching for some magazines.

In Key West we thought we were pirates setting sail for lands far away.

Denise and I have had other adventures together and I’m sure we’ll have many more in the future. She’s more than a colleague, I count her as one of my closest friends.

Denise Dube lives in the Boston area. Be sure to check out Denise’s online outlet, GlobalFoodie and anytime you pick up a magazine be sure to check the byline because you just might see Denise Dube as the author. Follow Denise on Twitter: @GolbalFoodie.

Love you D!
