Another Lost Voice in the Blogosphere

For a long time now I have wanted to share my experiences in food and travel with the rest of the world. As I sit here staring blankly at my laptop, I am starting to wonder what makes me so special that anyone on Earth would want to hear my thoughts. I'm not a particularly good writer, nor do I claim to know more about food, or travel than anyone else. But what I do have is a burning desire to, as Simon Majumdar put it, "Go Everywhere and Eat Everything".

I wake up each morning and wonder what my next meal is going to be and where. I long for the irresistible pleasures of Foie Gras on Brioche at Le Gavroche and I ache for the intensely perfumed heat of summer in Provence.

I am, and I mean this in the nicest way possible, a travel and food whore. "I am a Passport Foodie". Traveling to eat and eating to travel. Taking my camera with me to document the moment in 1/60th of a second intravals. Some of my travel photos can be seen on my seldomly updated website Taylor Young Photography. The rest can be seen here, hopefully updated at a much quicker pace than my website. I'm notoriously slow when it comes to editing my photos. So please be patient.

Am I destined to be another lost voice in the overly crowded blogospher? Possibly. But it's important to me that I share the experiences I have in food and travel with those that either can't go and do what I can, or those that want to, but need more information. That is what I am going to attempt to do. I have made the decision, for good or bad to stand up and be recognized and have my voice heard. The one thing I haven't decided on, is where to begin. Wish me luck!

  1. As someone wise once said to me "if you want to be a writer, write"

    Good luck with the blog. I will be an interested observer of your eating exploits
