Discover the magic of Asia with Wee Lyn’s food tours

1. What’s your name (can include nicknames)
Call me “Lynn” or “Wee Lynn”. But please, not “Wee”.
2. What sorts of tours and experiences do you run?
My tours are food tours in authentic food hotspots of Sydney, with a dash of cultural immersion. You’ll learn or taste something new, and you won’t leave hungry…I promise!
You’ll also learn handy tips for easily making delicious food at home. You can have a holiday for your tastebuds without getting on a plane!
3. What lead you to run these experiences?
I love my food! I relish making new food discoveries and sharing them with people.
Sydney is such a diverse place. Many people want to be adventurous and go outside their usual haunts, but it’s daunting. After you’ve decided which eatery to enter, how do you decide which of the 63 menu items the kitchen excels at?
That’s where it’s useful to be taken around by someone who personally frequents these places!
Never feel compelled to order sweet and sour pork for the umpteenth time at the usual takeaway joint again. Come eat with me instead.
4. What’s your idea of a fun night out?
A barbecue with lots of good friends and happy kids, on an autumn evening when the final remnants of warmth still linger. There’ll be an array of meats, like chilli chicken wings, bulgogi sausages, Sichuan lamb skewers in chilli, cumin and beer sauce, Malaysian satay with the proper peanut sauce. Plus an array of salads made with dewy fresh produce from the Sydney Markets at Flemington. Topped off by a gelato scoop cake from my local gelataria, Feed. YUM!
5. What’s the coolest travel experience you’ve ever had?
It’d have to be backpacking in Japan on a skin flint budget. Every single day for 10 days, I encountered something so new that it blew my mind, be it tall Japanese girls dressed like Barbie dolls, or freshly caught tuna so large the fishmonger wielded a samurai-looking sword to cut it.
6. Why do you want to meet people through experiences and activities?
I get a kick out of satisfying the curiosity of adventurous people. It is gratifying to show off the delightful food that Sydney has to offer, and its great exchanging tips on making life in the kitchen tastier and easier.

7. Describe your ideal tour participant
Someone even vaguely interested in food is bound to have fun. It’s great taking around a group of people who know each other – they bond and have enjoy themselves. My tours cater to all types of people.
People with dietary or mobility requirements are also very welcome – just let me know in advance so I can make arrangements.
I’ve had guests from both ends of the spectrum when it comes to levels of culinary and cultural knowledge, but luckily the professional chef said he’d learnt something new and had fun too.
8. What do you love about Sydney?
How you can visit a suburb and be transported into a different country, complete with sights, smells and authentic food. And it’s all at our doorstep, waiting to be discovered.
9. If you could go anywhere in the world and do anything, what would it be and why?
Turkey, getting lost in a souk. I’ll be surrounded by ingredients to discover, foods to taste, and rugs and many other things of beauty. Heaven!

Like the sound of Wee Lyn and her love of food? You can enjoy it, too! Simply send her a message and book her Asian thrills food tour.

The adventures of iWine: matching wine with your music

An intrepid group of wine loving, music hounds grouped at the Old Growler in Woolloomooloo for the eXpertLocal tour iWine: wine matching with music.

From Aerosmith to Prince and everything in between, our host Jake made the most fun with a group of thirsty, adventurous Sydney siders. You may also know Jake from his wine matching with junk food. Jake is a passionate wine maker with loads of experience and a true showman’s flair. He is one of the brains behind a Bronte favourite, Garrick’s Wine.

In this tour, Jake and his offsider Tom ran a great evening for The Media Madams Scarlett Vespa & Debbie Carr from Eagle Waves Radio, Katie from Wanderlust at Bondi Beach Radio, smooth musician Arrnott Olssen and the gang from Sydney Chic. And of course our own Jervis and Sharon!

Check out the evidence of fun and frivolity. 

A great night was had by all.

Check out what Arrnott Olssen had to say: 

And we totally agree with Katie’s advice:

Meet eXpertLocal host Bek: Music, food, beer and labradors

1.   What’s your name (can include nicknames)

My name is Bek. My nickname is Nipper because I’m short and have the personality of an adele penguin. Adele penguins are the little ones that keep the bigger penguins in line and keep the rookery safe.

2.   What sorts of tours and experiences do you run?

I run quite a lot of tours in Bronte and surrounds. I am also passionate about the Sydney live music scene and creativity in general so am always up for something to do with that. Plus I love wine and beer, so I like sharing that with people who may not know where to go to find a good drop.

3.   What lead you to run these experiences?

Running tours in Bronte was my way of getting used to a new area after 15 years in the Inner West and Redfern. I also believe in supporting local business and the creative scene, so thought sharing these experience with others might help get create an audience for what they do and provide.

4.   What’s your idea of a fun night out?

I’m a sucker for a small bar or pub that isn’t too pretty, has character, and where I can hear my friends talk. I also brain crush on things that are special, so you’ll probably find me out at roof top markets, food truck Fridays, and chasing down a great craft beer with a decent feed.

5.   What’s the coolest travel experience you’ve ever had?

The most notable experience was travelling to the Red Centre and finding a town with barely 20 people living in it that had two pubs. I asked the guys in one pub why they needed two and he said “Coz girly, not everyone in town can drink in the same place”. Before he went on to offer me 2liters of beer he referred to as a “stubbie” and bag out half the townspeople.

Relaxation wise, I had a very wonderful experience in Woolgoolga staying in a Glasshouse set in rainforest with its own spa and all the mod cons. It was probably the most relaxing ten days of my life. The town was also beautiful and full of friendly locals, organic food and superb cafes.

6.   Why do you want to meet people through experiences and activities?

I think we usually make new friends through like minded activities, so if I can meet some cool people who share my love of music, beer, wine and discovery, that’d be awesome!

I also find myself being the one who comes up with a lot of “this is where we should go” answers when friends come to stay, so it seemed like the logical next step!

And I want to demonstrate to people you don’t need to have bucket loads of cash to enjoy Sydney. You simply need to know where to look.

7.   Describe your ideal tour participant

Friendly, fun, cheery and not afraid to have fun.

8.   What do you love about Sydney?

I love that I can go and walk down at the Rocks and see such iconic beauty, and then travel to Redfern or Strathfield and see an entirely different style of life and wonder. And I love that people are still willing to meet new people, create wonderful things and that even if you have $5 in your pocket, if you know where to look, you can still find fun.

9.   If you could hang out with 3 people for a day, who would they be and why?

You said people, so that cuts out my loopy Labrador, Gibson. I’d probably want to meet up with some local innovators like Jared Ingersoll (chef and foodie entrepreneur), someone from Icon Park and Richard Branson to see how we can use the growth in food & wine, pop up scene and a little crazy entrepreneurial spirit to help the rock and heavy side of the Sydney music scene.

10.                What’s currently on your playlist?

Local blues rock band Tom Stone and the Soldiers of Fortune. Plus still very happy with playing NIN and QOTSA on repeat after their recent visit to Sydney- it was awesome!

11.                If you could go anywhere in the world and do anything, what would it be and why?

It’d be a tossup between taking photos in the jungle of Indochina or a rum tour in Cuba. I love projects such as Humans of New York and Sydney’s 52 Suburbs and how that captures people in their day to day so that explains Indochina. And the rum and Cuba because I think there’s probably a little Hunter S. Thompson in all of us and that’s where mine would come to the fore.

12.                Anything else we should know about you?

I am absolutely besotted with my Labrador, so if anyone wants to put up any dog friendly activities, I will totally be there!

You can meet Bek via her eXpertLocal profile and doing one of her many activities.

Looking for a summary of how to get started on eXpertLocal? Check out our guide.

Think about what you love

Yes, it really is that simple. What kinds of things do you love sharing with your friends? What’s something you know a lot about? What’s a topic that really excites you? What are the things you really love doing? Sharing those moments, ideas and adventures with other people are what eXpertLocal is all about.

Write it down

From your favourite kind of Saturday picnic through to knowing all the cool little places to go in a particular suburb, your experience really needs to have a little form to it so other people can understand. So break down your idea and think about:

One of the best things about eXpertLocal is there isn’t a boss telling you how to run your experience. What you want to do is what you write down. We can certainly help you write your tour, but everything from the length of the tour to the subject matter, through to how many people can go and what it entails is entirely up to you. AND you can try out your experience, and change it when you want to. This is your opportunity to design your ideal job with support!

Wow 2013, you’ve been awesome for eXpertLocal!

2013 truly has been an amazing year. From building eXpertLocal through to the end of the year, we’ve done some pretty amazing things. We think a recap and a few thank you hugs are due.

In no particular order, here are the things that have made 2013 really awesome!

  1. We started our soft launch phase at the beginning of the year and picked up everything from walking tours to wonderful wine experiences.
  2. After seeing the growing number of fantastic ideas coming from entrepreneurs who were trying to help Sydney creative and small business scene through pop up experiences, plus also the changing nature of small business in our fair city, we began reaching out to these groups for experiences.
  3. We launched free experiences to help promote the wonderful activities done by all kinds of activists and groups, including the Sydney Feminists.
  4. We began our commitment to changing the Sydney live music scene, especially for the rock and heavier bands, through the Sydney live music tours, and actively promoting band gigs via our monthly “what’s on” blogs.
  5. We launched to an amazingly packed house at Hustle and Flow in Redfern with guest speakers, graffiti artist Amuze, and local legend St Peters Brewery. You can see the fun in the photos!
  6. We launched our eXpertLocal meetup group and regular gatherings to help our hosts find out what they needed, and also meet face to face.
  7. Our founder Jervis was featured on Sky News, and we saw local press happening for our commitment to the artistic community plus some of our tours featured in the local papers for the Inner West and Eastern Suburbs (with more to come!). And we gained some love from the wellness community by being named an ethical Christmas choice in the Yoga Reach Christmas Gifts blog for 2013.
  8. Our marketing & content manager Rebekah spoke at Social Media Women, representing eXpertLocal and experienced based collaborative consumption alongside Lisa Fox from Open Shed.
  9. We met our amazing PR person Sharon, who also introduced us to the wonderful world of Creatives Uncovered.
  10. We’ve almost hosted 100 activities in the Sydney region, and are looking to do more of the same in 2014.

As we turn the page on 2013, we’ve also learnt a lot of things.

a)      Collaborative consumption is a beautiful idea, but it does require a lot of work. Encouraging 2 people to meet with a platform in the middle for the good of the people and the community needs more support than simply being there. We’ve learned from this, and hope that offering tailored help with writing descriptions, being more hands on with the experiences with helping our hosts find venues and participants, plus also providing marketing and social media advice will help with this process.

b)      Getting people to come to events requires a wee bit of prodding. Sydney is a funny town. 50% of people won’t turn up for a gig if it rains. We’re all a little too busy to remember everything so RSVPs need 3 or 4 (or maybe 5) reminders. And we can talk ourselves out of them…a lot, only to find once we go that it’s really quite wonderful. The hardest part of getting people to an event is not the event itself; it’s the conversation that goes on in a person’s head. That’s why we’ve established a meetup group to help our hosts meet and gain confidence, plus will be including regular events in 2014. Watch this space for details.

c)       People are pretty clever, but they are shy. We already have all kinds of tours on eXpertLocal that show culture, food and fun, and from the conversations we’ve been having with people now, we’ve got another bunch of ideas to come that will blow your socks off. The funny thing is, many of these truly awesome ideas came from people who were worried about whether it was “good enough”, or if “anyone would do this?” Experience has taught us if you’re feeling nervous about your tour, you’re onto a damn good idea. That’s why we offer assistance with shaping your idea, answering deeper questions you may have, and working with you to get rid of the nerves.

 

These are all great lessons to have learnt as they will make us stronger for the next year.

We’d like to extend sincere thanks to every single one of our hosts, past and present (and the future ones, too!) You are what creates a journey that is worthwhile.

We also wouldn’t be anywhere without our participants, who have come from across Sydney to explore other suburbs, battled rain to see music, jumped on board with the Freelance Jungle, walked many a trail through the fair city of Sydney, and are curious locals looking for discovery of bicycle trails, food and fun.

You guys rock.

McCallam, Unashamedly Creative, Chic Petite Events and Second Storey Productions, we’d also like to thank you for your continued service and assistance in the business of startup and being eXpertLocal.

AND we’d like to thank everyone for the support on social media, via email and around town. We look to have a great 2014! 

What’s on in Sydney in December with eXpertLocal
