Welcome to Feastio, a food blog for travelers who are always on the lookout for their next best meal.
If your trip planning is motivated by food, you're in the right place.
If your eyes light up at a beautifully presented dish, you're in the right place.
If you celebrate life with the most delicious food you can get your hands on, you, my friend, are in the right place.
My vision for Feastio is to create a website that highlights the best restaurants in the world, and a community of readers who share their favorite food and drink experiences with us through social media.
What to Expect
Initially, I'm going to focus on the restaurant scenes in three of my favorite cities: Austin, Mexico City, and Lima.
After traveling and living abroad for eight years, I moved to Austin in April 2016. Known for its mouth-watering Texas barbecue, Austin has a thriving food and bar scene with plenty of events to keep foodies busy.
I first visited Mexico City in 2013. Since discovering a direct flight from Austin in 2017, I've returned four times in the last year alone. It's also on my shortlist of foreign cities where I might want to live one day.
I've spent a collective eight months in Lima since 2011, having used it as a base to explore Peru and South America. In the process, I've become a big fan of Peruvian cuisine and Lima has some of Latin America's best restaurants.
Feastio, however, will reflect much more than these three cities.
As a I continue traveling to new countries, and return to some old favorites, I'll be sharing stories from them too. For starters, I'm heading to Cuba at the end of the month, and Italy in October.
I'll also be looking back and sharing some of my favorite meals from the past. Would it surprise you that I've taken photos of nearly every meal I've ever eaten abroad in over 50 countries since December 2007?
No? Then you're in good company, because I have been taking food photos ever since cameras were added to cell phones.
While not the focus of Feastio, I also consider drinks, including cocktails, beer, and wine to fall within the scope of this blog. Don't be surprised if you see bars, breweries, and wineries too.

Feastio Editorial Policy
As an active member of such organizations as the Society of American Travel Writers, Professional Travel Bloggers Association, and Adventure Travel Trade Association, I pride myself on acting ethically and transparently in my work.
I pay my own way for 99% of my travel and dining experiences, and in any instances where I'm invited somewhere at reduced or no cost, such as a food event or press trip, I'll clearly indicate as much in the article and related social media posts.
It's my goal to keep paid advertising, such as banners and sponsored posts, to a minimum. I do intend to include affiliate links for products and services I use and recommend.
When I do so, I'll make it clear I stand to earn a commission if you make a purchase through my link. You can see an example of how this might look in the blurb about Sun Basket above.
As Feastio gets up and running, I won't be accepting guest posts. If and when this changes in the future, I'll be sure to let readers know.
