We are travelers, wanderers, foodies on a mission to find the best adventures of our lives. My husband, Jay and I both grew up in U.S. army families which meant that every few years we had to leave everything behind for a new city. That lifestyle isn’t for everyone, but it for Jay and I it formed a certain intrigue about the big, wide world around us. Living in Naples, Italy; Stuttgart, Germany; Honolulu, Hawaii and several more worldwide destinations, Jay and I fell in love with experiencing new cultures at a young age…a passion that still burns within us. Thus, He She Oui was formed. A food and travel blog where we’ll share our experiences, travel tips and copycat recipes of the best dishes we’ve discovered around the world. We hope you enjoy!
