- When Friendsgiving is Thanksgiving 6 days ago The term Friendsgiving seems to have come into some amount of popularity over the past few years. Friendsgiving, if you don’t know, is a separate Thanksgiving celebration usually held the weekend before or after the holiday when friends gather for another meal. I fully support the idea of...
- Escaping the City in Cornwall 1 week ago I’ve become one of those people who says things like, “I need to get out of the city and see the countryside to relax.” I don’t know if this is a side effect of getting older or just a side effect of living in a city where I’m pushed up awkwardly into someone’s crotch on [...]Escaping...
- Thailand: The Greatest Hits 2 weeks ago Remember that time I spent four months in Southeast Asia and never really blogged about it? Yeah, me too. I’d meant to start writing about it when I got home. And then I got distracted. And then so much time had passed and I started doing other things, that all the posts I wanted to...
- Afternoon Tea in London: Round 2 1 month ago This past weekend my friend Kasey (yes, the same one who visited me in Korea last year) stopped by London on her way home from a work trip in Germany. It was a perfectly timed trip as our other good friend from college is currently on work assignment here. The three of us love to [...]Afternoon Tea...
- Netil Market: My Happy Place 2 months ago London has a lot of markets. Like, I think about 90% of my weekend plans that don’t involve bars or pubs revolve around a market of some sort. This is not a problem because unlike markets in Asia, which I usually find to be sensory overload, markets in London, though usually crowded, are much...

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.

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!
