We’re Thomas & Sheena travel and food fiends who are passionate about discovering new places and sharing our travels with others. We inspire people to come to grips with a destination by eating local and experiencing new things. Join us as we help you to eat and explore like a traveller, not a tourist.
Who are we?
We’re Kiwis who have called Melbourne home for the past few years. We’ve been travelling together for 10 years and had adventures ranging from trekking to Everest Base Camp, elephant spotting in Sri Lanka and slurping apple lassis in the frenetic lane ways of Varanasi. After years of trying to fit travel into every spare moment and satisfying our wanderlust through month long trips here and there, we decided enough was enough.
In October 2016 we packed up our apartment, hopped on a plane and started travelling full-time. New faces, new places and endless amounts of street food are our future!
Why are we qualified to write about food and travel?
We live to eat and travel. Chasing a Plate started as a Melbourne based food blog in 2013 borne from our love of finding the best food in a city renowned for its restaurants and eateries. Over the past 10 years we have travelled to over 30+ countries and in each destination our days are filled with finding local spots to eat and experiencing all a place has to offer through its sights, activities and people. Chasing a Plate grew to include travel when we decided we wanted to help others find the local gems we were discovering on our journeys. Through writing, photography and videography we want to showcase destinations and inspire our audience to experience it for themselves.
