Hi , I’m Robin Dohrn-Simpson
By the time I was out of high school I had been to almost all of the states in the USA. I picked up the last few, and 75 countries being a travel agent and tour operator for 26 years. I’m filled with wanderlust. I always want to see what is around the corner, behind the door, across the ocean. Travel is in my blood. It is my lifeline. It is a part of my soul.
I enjoy writing about wine and the wine tourism. If I’m not at my desk writing you’ll find me at a winery chatting it up with the winemaker, tasting their wines and waxing eloquently about the wine.
Believe it or not I also write about food, but I don’t cook. My husband is an amazing home chef. I love to buy different foods and bring them home to cook. He loves the challenge of looking in the refrigerator, finding a variety of ingredients and creating amazing meals.
I moved to San Diego to find me a surfer boy- and that’s exactly what I did 36 years ago. My husband has been my rock throughout my life. He supports my wanderlust and gladly joins a lot of my trips and has become my photographer.
I was a travel agent and a tour operator for 26 years. When the internet came into our lives in the early 2000s, I lost my career. As I searched for what is next, I realized that I wanted to write about travel. My passion was to show people the cool things in the world, where to go, what to see and do. Now I do this through my writing.
My next trip is still being debated, maybe southern Spain and Morocco or perhaps, England and cruise the Fjords of Norway. Time will tell.
