It’s been a bit over a fortnight since I’ve arrived back home from an amazing five weeks spent in North America. Since then I’ve been adjusting to life back in the real world. This means going back to my studies, my job and of course brunching. I’ve also finally had time to sort through the photos from my trip. All 8,000 of them. Since I’ve been back, I’ve already lost count of the number of times that someone has asked me to list all of the places that I had visited, or asked what was the ultimate highlight of my trip, or what was the best meal that I had eaten. And most of the time I’m unable to give them a simple response because 1. there were usually more than one answer and 2. there is just too much to talk about in general!
The beautiful sunset on our flight from Honolulu to L.A. ?
Therefore, it made more sense for me to write about my travel and food adventures in as much detail as I wanted to on a blog like this as opposed to boring my friends in person. Especially when a friend naively asks me how the food was in NYC and unsuspectingly gets lured into a 5-minute long story about how the food there has led me on this newfound quest for the perfect bagel in life ?
I may not be much of a writer but it’s been pointed out to me on numerous occasions how passionate I can get when I start talking about two of my most favourite things to do in this world – eating and travelling. Or better yet, doing both at the same time 😉 In truth I’ve actually dreamed about starting a blog for awhile now but as an introvert, the idea of sharing and putting my thoughts out there for others to see was quite terrifying to say the least. But if I can overcome my fear of flying halfway across the world to a foreign continent all on my own (which I have done twice now), why wouldn’t I be able to do this?
Travelling especially has really opened up my eyes to the world – to new cultures, new people and some damn good food. And I can only hope to entertain and share my experiences on here and perhaps influence others by providing ideas and insight on where to eat or visit. All I know is that if I’m not out in the world exploring or eating, I’d be dreaming about it.
