About Anita's Feast

Be inspired—travel with us!

Anita’s Feast–a collaborative effort of writer Anita Breland and photographer Tom Fakler— focuses on food travel and cultural exploration around the world. Published with you–the active, inquisitive traveler–in mind, Anita’s Feast provides travel stories and impressions, and plenty of inspiring images.

Who we are

Anita and TomWe are Anita and Tom, long-time expats and avid “boomer” travelers. We have lived and worked on four continents, and for more than a decade have called Europe home. Home for us is destination travel for others, so we share our local discoveries, as well.

We’ve been traveling forever, and blogging about it since 2010. Everything we write about is based our personal experience (including our pandemic year of not traveling).

How we travel

We are all about experiential travel, seeking out atmospheric accommodations that offer luxurious touches worth a splurge, and opportunities to sample authentic local flavors.

Good food is important to us, whether in a fine restaurant, a family-owned cafe or a beach shack. We especially enjoy meeting the people who grow and produce great food , and those who prepare it for us. Wherever we go, we look for the little things that make a place special and memorable for us–and for our readers. If we have a bad experience, we do not broadcast it. We leave the job of food critic to others.

Our stories

We invited readers to follow our travels to places we have found inspirational, quirky, or beautiful–sometimes all three at once. From explorations near to our home in Portugal, to in-depth experiences in food travel destinations such as Switzerland and Italy, or slow travel in fabulous places like Sri Lanka, there is always a travel experience in the works and stories ready to be told.

Anita’s Feast brings you stories about food travel–cooking, eating out, local foods and markets–plus cultural exploration and introductions to fascinating people. Subscribers receive email alerts to new posts.

Always on the lookout for new adventures, new cultures to explore, and unfamiliar foods we are sure to love!
