Hello! Somehow you’ve found my blog in the black hole of the internet, and you might be wondering who I am and what this eating nonsense is all about.
My name is Tina–I’m a 24-year-old American who has been work-traveling for over two years. I graduated from James Madison University in 2010 with a degree in journalism, and quickly chose exploring the world over getting what my friends and family would refer to as a “real job.”
I’ve gone from the vast deserts and canyons of America’s Southwest to the lively chaotic Bangkok and have just landed in Canberra after spending six months in Melbourne. Canberra will be home for at least a year, and I’m on a mission to find out what the capital has to offer.
People travel to learn about themselves, and one thing I’ve learned is how much I love food and all its possibilities. When I lived in America, I didn’t know anything outside fast food joints, restaurant chains and ma’s home cooking. My idea of being cultured was eating General Tsao’s chicken and chipotle wraps from McDonald’s. When I left the country, my world opened up to tastes I didn’t know existed. Confession: I had never tried curry until a week after being in Thailand.
Now, I want to eat everything in my path and write about it along the way.
My blog posts will be more dining narratives than critical reviews, and I don’t claim to have the expertise to make the best judgment on whether a restaurant is good or not. I merely want to share my experience and combine two passions of mine: writing and eating.
I’ll forewarn readers: I’m not a picky eater, so don’t be surprised if I end up liking just about everything I consume.
