Our Project

Discovering the World

Growing up I was really lucky to be raised by parents who made it a priority to expse me to world culture. My mom was a refugee from Cuba and had lived in Spain, France and Japan. My father had been stationed in Madrid during his stint in the airforce and had later spent a year as a Rotary Schollar in Scotland. They both really valued other traditions and were always taking me to ethnic restaurants and cooking international food at home too.

But in a big city like Dallas, Texas, where I grew up, it was easy to find exotic restaurants and festivals comemorating traditions from different cultures.

Now that I’m a parent myself I really want to share the cultures of the world with my children in a similar way. The catch is that I now live in a small city (Salamanca) in Spain and the opportunities for discovering the world as I did when I was little are harder to come by here.

So I’ve decided to go about it in a more intentional way, and I’ve created this family project, Omnivorous Curiosity. This way I can share our journey of discovery with the world and hopefully make a positive impact along the way.

As an avid foodie, a lot of what I share is food and recipes because I find it a really relatable way to comprehend diverse cultures. After all, everybody eats.

My husband is a professional musician, Nano Cobo, so he will be contributing music to our adventure.

I hope you will follow along with us and participate in our project to discover the world!

  1. Would love to follow you. Born and raised in Dallas in 60’s. We were from such a different generation and travel like this was not common. At least not for middle class.
    Now as a 60 year old I have beginning my own travels and education of other cultures! What lucky children you have. Wishing you the best!
