Archives For blog

Since I last wrote a post here, I was away for a weekend, then had a week on holiday, and got out of the swing of adding new posts. I’ve been taking lots of photos, but no posting here.

I‘ve been thinking a lot about this blog, feeling overwhelmed, feeling like I needed everything to be perfect, with perfect photos, brilliant writing. I’ve come to the realization that the truth is my posts will never be like those of @_______ (insert your favorite blogger/s Twitter accounts here), in style or content. Before beginning this blog I’d thought about all of that, but somehow lost sight of it.

And so I’m now back to my original goals: to write up / post photos of of my adventures in looking for great places to visit, great places to eat. It will be personal, and hopefully over time both the photos and the writing will improve.

It has been fun talking with people on Twitter and here on the blog that I would not have otherwise met, so I look forward to more of that. Thanks for reading this, for reading the blog.

Welcome to Eat. Travel. Bliss.!

Eat. Travel. Bliss. aims to write on adventures in seeking blissful food and places, in Sydney, and in Australia, and further afield, around the world.

Eat. Travel. Bliss. is written by Andrea, with photos she has taken. Andrea grew up in north-west Sydney, Australia, and has also lived in Hong Kong (3 years), Portland, Oregon, USA (8 years). She has traveled to many other countries, enjoying getting to know new people and cultures.

Andrea loves seeing the cultural diversity in Sydney, and so one of the aims of this blog is to show some of the best food around Sydney, generally looking for food which is affordable, and interesting, not always making it on to the top food lists, but worthy of attention. With such a variety of places around Sydney, those lists must be limited, but there are so many others worth a visit. That may be because of things like their great location, or atmosphere, or because they transport you to another part of the world with the food there, but always good. Of course some of the recognized restaurants will make it into the blog from time to time, too.

Because Andrea is located in Sydney, that will be the centre for exploration, but there will be articles on places within easy driving distance of Sydney, and then further afield.

Eat. Travel. Bliss. is not just about food, but also about finding places which are blissful, for their views, surroundings, character, history, style, or some other reason!

Hopefully others will contribute to the writing in Eat.Travel. Bliss. too, as time goes on.

Please keep on coming back and reading! We’d love to get to know you, so please add comments and feedback below.

So tell me, what are some of your favourite food or travel web sites and blogs?
