A little about Ducky
Ducky has been wandering the globe for the past 17 years. She believes in slow food and slow travel. Slow food aims to preserve traditional and regional cuisine, through promotion of small, local businesses. Slow travel, allowing you to engage more fully with communities, favouriting spots enjoyed by locals rather than guidebooks. She believes in using food as a vehicle to understanding cultures and importantly, bringing people together.
Urban Forage and Urban Forage Foodie Adventures were born through her love of food and wanting to share it with as many people as possible. You can check out some itineraries for 2014
In between exploring new destinations and cuisines and visiting old favourites you will find her in Phnom Penh. Here she shares Cambodia’s culinary delights with travellers on her Street Food and Market Dinners, Morning Market Tours and Roving Dinners.
Who is Urban Forage?
Ducky is Urban Forage – I’m an independent traveler establishing myself in different countries for a minimum of 3-6 months chasing the best food adventures. The information I provide is for those people wanting to travel abroad with the aim of living location independent, do a sabbatical abroad or simply to travel as a local as opposed to a tourist. My focus is on food, fun and philanthropy.
My first country of choice is Cambodia and that is where you will currently find me.
Current readership peeks between the ages of 25-34 and is 60% females, predominantly from Australia, the UK, the USA and Canada.

I’m certainly open to any advertising proposals, press trips and brand partnerships given that they be in line with my travel ethos, which are focused around slow food and slow travel, as well as giving back into the communities that I travel through.
Some examples of opportunites include, but are not limited to:
Hotel, tour, restaurant or travel product reviews (please note that total transparency is given to my readers when accommodation, touring or products are sponsored, and an objective view is always given)
Having spent all of my adult life (17 years) either studying travel and food, working in travel and food or traveling (and eating), I’m well versed in the travel industry both from a retail, as well as a wholesale perspective. As such I’m the perfect option to lead famils, media/VIP trips, groups or as your next brand ambassador. I walk the talk!
