yoko meshi berlin

Yoko Meshi: This is how the Japanese define the peculiar stress induced by speaking a foreign language.

On Yoko Meshi you can follow my journey around the world and read about the amazing culinary tastes that inspire me along the way. 

I’m Sam,  I currently live in London and quite simply I want to discover all the world has to offer whilst having the best time doing it.
My love of travel started from a young age with family holidays across Europe and to America, but my travel bug was fully ignited after my first visit to Asia. Since then I use my annual leave and weekends to explore all over the world and immerse myself in new cultures.

I am initially not the bravest of girls but since the start of 2016 I made a promise to not let fear make my decisions for me. Scuba diving to zip-lining through the Thai jungle, I do not want to miss out on anything I may not have the opportunity to do again.


Volunteering at a primate rehabilitation centre in Phalaborwa, South Africa

My other love in life is animals. When I am not on my travels I work as a registered Veterinary nurse and spend my days with some pretty incredible animals. Occasionally I combine my love of travelling and animals by volunteering overseas as a Veterinary Nurse, for example with Baboons in South Africa and Elephants in Chiang Mai. Yoko Meshi only features ethical and responsible animal experiences; I want to educate people to help to preserve our beautiful planet and the animals we share it with.

Never stop exploring.

Please feel free to contact me, I am always happy to chat or help with travel plans:
