Whether she’s traveling by air, by land or sea, Debi gathers inspiration from the people she meets, the local culture, history, architecture and cuisine.

She’s written for Islands, Fox News, AOL Travel, Business Jet Traveler and Automotive Traveler, among others
At age fifty, this mother of four traveled from Jacksonville, Florida, to Athens, Greece, to compete in her first marathon—and finished. Then, she went on to complete ten more. She’s tried drag-racing, hang gliding, hiking the rainforest in Dominica, and descending into a slippery wet cave. Ms. Lander even jumped out an airplane on a tandem skydive.
Debi currently resides in St. Augustine, Florida and is a member of the Society of American Travel Writers and the International Food, Wine and Travel Writers Association. Her food blog at ByLanderSea-food features culinary articles, restaurant reviews and recipes from her travels, as well as bite size nuggets about what’s happening in my own kitchen.
