Can't believe someone actually made a blog about durians? Yeah, me neither. 

Hi, I'm Lindsay. I'm obsessed with durian. I also like to travel.
This is my blog.

For the last few years, I've used durian as a compass in getting off the beaten path in Southeast Asia and traveling with an awareness of the environmental, cultural, political, and just plain odd aspects of eating durian.

I hope that my story simultaneously tickles your sense of humor and curiosity about the bizarre planet we hang out on, and inspires you to explore it for yourself.

It's weird, I know. But that makes it more fun.

I've eaten durian in 13 countries.
Here's a list of all the places I've visited in the last 4 years.
Sound like fun? Oh, it is.

Plan your own durian vacation by downloading the Traveler's Guide to Durian Season, which will help you figure out when and where to go to catch the best durian.
