About Me

Why Displaced Southerner & why my love for The South you ask…

I’m an Adelaide girl (South Australia), so technically Southern by birth rite, and in late 2012 I realised how important that fact was to me. I’d been to the States on many occasions & have always been a fan but it wasn’t till I arrived in The South that I realised I was in my home away from home. Since first setting my feet on Southern soil and smelling that Southern air I’ve been smitten with all things Southern, especially sweet tea, fried chicken, BBQ, bourbon, and rocking chairs on the front porch.

Through my travels I have come across some truly wonderful finds. As a food & travel writer I’ve been able to get quite a few of these finds published, but I still have a wealth of information that hasn’t, so Displaced Southerner was born. My hope now is to give y’all a taste of some of the things that I love, both in Australia (in particular Melbourne, where I’m currently based) & The South, &  maybe you too will find an affinity with these amazing places…
