My name is Rachel Carr and I started This Is Carrt in 2014 when my husband's job moved to Germany and I decided to give up my day job in the city and go with him on the adventure! I had always loved to travel and write, and was also passionate about photography so one day I sat down and mingled all three of them on this website and my Etsy page. I write about a wide range of things like how to cope with airline hand luggage allowances to what to wear to any destination wedding. However, when I write up a holiday destination, there are more often than not a few common themes linking what are otherwise very different places:

1) Food. I love to eat. It structures my day to day life as well as any trip that I go on. I think food is a great way to start to experience a new culture as well as meeting new people.

2) Value. I don't get swayed by places to be seen and clothing to be seen in for the sake of it. I hate being ripped off. Be that by a fiver or by hundreds of pounds. If an activity or an excursion I go on is expensive but an amazing experience, I will still highly recommend it, but won't recommend it simply because it is deemed luxury.

3) Beauty. I love looking at pretty things. They don't have to have a purpose!

5 Ways With Quinoa

Rachel Carr

Quinoa is a great, wheat free, alternative carb. But up until recently I've not had much success with it. I simply put it in my trolley because Deliciously Ella was extolling its virtues. Have you, like me an millions before you, bought this healthy food stuff with no real idea what do with it? I've had a great deal more success with it since I discovered that I could simply substitute it for cous cous or pasta. Plus it has a wonderful nutty flavour that can add to many meal. I've collated some great recipe ideas below that give any quinoa virgin some excellent pointers.
