Hi there! We’re Janice and Kitty, the founders of Stone & Fern, and we’re excited to have you here! Inspired by our journeys abroad and our love for adventures and good food, we started this travel blog in 2016 because we were tired of our friends asking us what to do and eat in (insert city here) – just kidding! Our original goal of Stone & Fern was to provide provide travel intelligence on locales around the world; however throughout our blogging journey, we’ve learned so much. Now, we simply share the moments that enliven us – whether we encounter them at home or halfway across the world!

Still curious about Janice & Kitty? We’re flattered!

We met in 2013 when we were both part of a little organization called DECA. We were on the executive team of the Queen’s University chapter, where we were pursuing our Bachelor of Commerce. Working closely together to plan a 3-day conference for over 120 students across Ontario, we quickly realized our shared love for food and became close friends.

Our program afforded us the opportunity to go on exchange – Kitty went to Taiwan in 2014 and Janice to Italy in 2015. We both came home with the travel bug and the inspiration to create Stone & Fern.
