- The Charm of Sicily Lies in the East 2 months ago For as long as I can remember, I had wanted to visit Sicily. It’s the one place in the world where I can trace a certain genealogical connection, the food was supposed to be some of Italy’s best, and, of course, everyone raves about the island’s beaches. So when I got to Palermo and didn’t...

Wow. Could this month have gone any more differently than planned? In last month’s recap I said I was...
- 6 Reasons Why Jordan Is the Perfect Place for a Girls Getaway 5 months ago In college I loved traveling with my girlfriends. Every summer we’d fly down to Florida for a week of cocktails, relaxing on the beach, and delicious dinners out. Sometimes we’d throw in a cultural or adventure activity too, just to balance things out. There were road trips full of inside...
- StrEAT Palermo Tour: Discovering Italy's Street Food Capital 5 months ago When I’m traveling solo I’m not really a tour person. I like to wander slowly and stop often to take photos. Or for a coffee (or beer) break. This isn’t really conducive to the fast pace of most city walking tours. The one exception, though, is food tours. I freaking love food tours. For...

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!
