I grew up in a family that loves food. We love eating, and while eating, we love talking about what we’re eating, and where we’re eating next. My mother is an amazing cook. When I was in high school, my classmates would literally buy my lunch from me. While I was in college, our friends flock to our house to enjoy her newly whipped up dish, or even leftovers from yesterday’s dinner. My oldest brother followed her footsteps and studied to become a chef. There is always food in our house, and I’m always eating that food.
I grew up in a family that likes to go on vacations every summer. We lived in Batangas, a province south of Manila, and my parents, when we were little, literally would up and say, hey, let’s go do a trip! and they would pack up the whole circus of us into a car and drive. Travel to nearby beaches wasn’t such an expensive thing then.
I started blogging when I travelled south of Manila to attend college. It was originally a personal blog,mainly to keep in touch with my family and best friends. It was a hodgepodge of ramblings about dorm life, what I ate–and that yes, I ate–misadventures as a student, web programming, music I listen to, and more road trips with family. My writing slowly evolved throughout the years, and I became connected with the local blogging community.
Then, in 2009, I was able to visit Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao–the three island groups of the Philippines–in one year, and that sparked the wanderlust in my veins.
Now, 12 years after I started blogging, I’m currently in the process of rebranding my blog. I’ve separated my personal posts, and Sarah Eats World will be focused on my thoughts on travel and food, and hopefully my posts will be helpful to someone.
Hi, I’m Sarah and I’m a travel-hungry food-lover on a mission to explore the world, one plate at a time.
Thanks for joining me eat my way around the world!
