- Craft Beer Rising: A London Celebration of Beer 6 days ago Is there anything more perfect than a weekend celebrating the ever evolving world of craft beer? If you’re like me, the answer to that would be “not really”. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I purchased tickets to Craft Beer Rising less than five minutes after hearing about it on...
- Snapshot Sunday: Busan, South Korea 1 week ago This week’s Snapshot Sunday comes from Busan, South Korea. I really enjoyed weekend getaways to Busan during my time in Korea. The seaside southern city had a completely different vibe than Seoul. Besides a much more laid back attitude, Busan is also the home of some serious great seafood. This...
- Snapshot Sunday: Klungkung Palace Bali 2 weeks ago This week’s Snapshot Sunday comes from Semarapura, Bali.

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.

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!
