Back when I started Feast + West, I envisioned it to blend together equal parts design, food and travel. For me, all of those things intersect and it’s hard to say which one inspires me most. I was able to share a lot of recipes and products in my first year, but I hit a roadblock with the travel section. How could I possibly share a travel guide for, well, everywhere?
Well, I finally figured it out, and I’m thrilled to announce my new travel guide series, Hidden Gems. On Thursdays for the foreseeable future, I will be welcoming bloggers from around the world who will take you off the beaten path in the cities they love. These guides are going to be packed with the kinds of places locals go, the spots not in the travel guides. Keep a bag ready to go in case you’re inspired to travel somewhere new, big or small.
Next week, I’m kicking off the series and giving you a taste of my hometown, Charlotte, N.C. Every week after that, one of my blogger friends will take the tour guide reins. If you’re a blogger interested in contributing a travel guide, check out the guidelines then drop me a line. // susannah
