Sharon of Foreign Escapades
Hi! I’m Sharon over at Foreign Escapades, my travel-lifestyle blog, where I infuse my love of travel with odd facts and good food– all while highlighting unique destinations found on my various escapades. I am newly-married (not yet two years, to “Spaceman,” who is actually an astronomer) and we live in the Los Angeles area.
When not blogging, I can be found downing unusually large amounts of iced tea, riding my retro Electra bicycle, and talking way too fast as I am hyped up on caffeine from the aforementioned tea. I also love to ride the metro where I smile at gang members and enjoy all that is city life– even if only for one stop.
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I love having a creative outlet that is completely my own to shape and mold. The freedom that offers is both exciting and nerve-wracking.
What do you find the most challenging about blogging/being a blogger?
Getting my blog noticed and then followed. I am relatively new to blogging and my dream is to become a go-to travel-lifestyle blog destination for…everyone! That means prioritizing time spent writing my blog as well as learning to balance work, marriage, social life, and living.
If you had to eat only one food for an entire year, what would it be?
I think I would have to go with ice cream. It is a kind of super food, offering so many key components from the food pyramid in one scoop, depending on which you choose: strawberry (fruit), chocolate (flavonols), mint chip (herbs), rocky road (nuts – and marshmallows). It is also good for developing muscle tone and bone density. Muscle tone from caring the extra weight you gain by eating all the ice cream and bone density from the calcium in ice cream!
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I like the idea of being invisible so that I could really see how people behave, and I could travel anywhere, unnoticed!
Thanks so much, Sharon! Everyone check out Foreign Escapades!
