It’s been a long while since I’ve published a Bite with a Blogger article, which is a bit criminal given how many bloggers I’ve crossed paths with over the two years I spent living in China. Not only did I get to sit down with Talon and Tigger of 1 Dad, 1 Kid last year in Koh Samui, but I also gorged on baked goods in Chiang Mai with World Flavor, hosted Backpacker Becki (now Borders of Adventure) in my Nanjing apartment, partied with Edna of Expat Edna on two separate occasions, snogged Wandering Dragon Heart, and had yet another ‘fancy lunch’ with Tony from It’s Good Overseas.
Nomadic American and I were spending a few lazy days on Koh Samui when Talon and Tigger breezed into town. With us staying at the wonderful Penzy Guesthouse and being close to the main drag, we opted to meet at the nearby Otaru Sushi Restaurant for a change from the delicious Thai street food that had largely been our diet since we’d arrived.
While I’ve been lucky enough to interview some pretty amazing bloggers in my time, I’ll admit to being just a little starstruck when Talon and Tigger walked in. I’ve been reading 1 Dad 1 Kid for almost as long as I’ve been blogging, and Talon’s an inspiration to me not only as a travel blogger, but as somebody who has lived with depression.
We settled down for a good meal of sushi and tempura, with Tigger and Talon both pitching in to make it a really fun night. We discussed everything from racism to video games, from his story to history, and everything in between.
I wish I remembered the conversation better, but in the interim, here’s the shiny new Bite with a Blogger interview.
