- See You in September! 18 hours ago I’m taking a little break from blogging. I know what you’re probably thinking. This blog doesn’t get updated regularly and I often just disappear for a few months, so why do I feel the need to announce a break now? Well, for my own sanity really. Even though I don’t have a regular posting...
- My Ten Favorite Instagrammers 1 week ago Recently Instagram has become my favorite social media platform. While I was skeptical when the app was first released (why would I use this instead of Twitter or Tumblr?), I’ve since become kind of obsessed. Yes, I am that person who takes ten photos of my food as soon as the sever has set it...
- The Best Bites in Budapest 2 weeks ago In between admiring the beauty of Budapest, throwing back palinka shots at ruin bars, and recovering in the thermal baths, I found time to do a fair bit of eating. Like Polish food, Hungarian cuisine was fairly new to me. I mean, even the one dish I thought I knew (goulash) I ended up being totally...
- The Beauty, Bars, and Baths of Budapest 2 weeks ago After failing to connect with Warsaw and a tour of Auschwitz that left me feeling uneasy, I was more than ready for a change of scenery. Or in this case, a change of country. I took an 8 hour bus ride south, through the Tatra Mountain in Slovakia, to Budapest. Originally two cities occupying either...
- Knowing When It's Time To Go 1 month ago It’s been quiet for the past couple of weeks over here. Partially because I was in Cologne visiting a friend and then friends came to London to visit, but mostly because I couldn’t write. I would sit down in front of the computer and the words just wouldn’t come. I’d look at pictures of...

- The Beginning of an Addiction in Rome Writing Contest October 2012 “Thank you,” the TSA agent said to me as he handed back my boarding pass. I turned around one last time and tearfully waved to my parents, who were standing just across the entrance to security. With my laptop in a grey, plastic bin, I took a...

The quality of the writing and photos always make feel like I am there. In addition to that, I thourghly enjoy the bloggers willingness to taste food that most of us will never try. Again, it has expanded my willingness to try new and different foods.

Clear, insightful and entertaining, Farsickness is a top blog on my daily read. Creative topics and beautiful photos make this a gem among travel blogs. The writers voice and enthusiasm about the places she visits keep me returning to wonder where has she gone now.

Farsickness is one of the few blogs that I feel is interesting and informative and, most importantly, well-written. I'm not big on blogs but I always look forward to reading about Amanda's expat life and travels!

As an enthusiast of all types of food and travel blogs, Farsickness proves to be my top choice for many reasons. I enjoy travel essays in Italy with Mayes and Provence with Mayle, but Farsickness with Amanda is quite different and absolutely wonderful. Amanda has a skill to create a brief blog that allows your imagination to run, wet your appetite and give you an urge to travel to countries I never thought I would. She does this by being descriptive, adding incredible photography and visiting new destinations. Each blog is a journey in its own way and most of all I love how Amanda allows a foodie like me to experience what the world has to offer through food!
