About the author:

Marielle Renssen 2 Mariëlle Renssen was born in Zimbabwe to Dutch parents, lost her heart to Cape Town while obtaining her BA degree, lived in New York City twice, and is now settled in Knysna … which firmly puts her in the ranks of roving gypsy. Travel has and always will be in her blood. After having been lured to work in the Big Apple for three years for a teenage magazine, homesickness reined her in and she returned to Cape Town, where she joined what was then Struik New Holland Publishers. She loved it so much she put down roots and stuck around for 12 years.

As an editor and writer for Struik’s international travel division, she visited Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Mauritius, London and Sydney. Because she and husband Hirsh have a lock-up home with no kids, no pets, no Tweetys, they will pack a suitcase in a heartbeat – which they do, regularly. They’ve journeyed from Jordan, Israel, Turkey and Greece all the way to Spain. In America they’ve snow-skied in Vermont, holidayed at Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, seen the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., got frostbite in Chicago and walked San Fran’s Golden Gate Bridge.

Since then Mariëlle has turned to travel writing for MapStudio, for whom she has penned more books than she can count, exploring the length and breadth of Southern Africa in two 4x4s with Hirsh and a travelling friend. Their latest adventure, which took them to south-western USA, was a two-month, 10,000km exploration of the national parks in America’s mountain states. It blew them away. So they wrote an e-book about it. In World Atlas of Food, the intensive research made it Mariëlle’s most challenging project to date, but stimulate the senses it did and her suitcase is already packed for her next trip into the far beyond.
