Hi I'm Lara.

Welcome to the Hungry Babe Travels, where I document my adventures in travel, food, and more.

Welcome, everyone. My name is Lara, otherwise known as the author behind The Hungry Babe Travels, and I'm an entertainment and fashion journalist currently living in Chicago, Illinois.

This record of my many travels -- from romantic Paris to the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon, from the southern shores of Spain to the sun-kissed Amalfi Coast -- has been in the making for many years, and I credit my thirst for adventure for bringing about many of the major milestones in my life.

From leaving my hometown of Portland, Oregon to study at Northwestern a thousand miles away in Chicago, to meeting my first love while studying abroad in London, England (the romance didn't last, but the love of travel did), in addition to the many places and people I've met along the way, I've come to believe that "home" is a state of mind, and a lifetime spent learning and reaching for the unfamiliar is the only one worth living. 

As I prepare to head to Ireland in a few days for an eight-day-long trip around the country, follow along on my many adventures spent exploring delicious eats, a treasure trove of sightseeing spots, and culture around the world.
