Who is Adam Sedgley?

He is an avid birdwatcher, runner, cyclist, naturalist, and admirer of foreign cultures. Some might call him a cultural chameleon were it not for his pasty complexion that lies somewhere between “albino” and “crushed eggshell.” Indeed, the only place this chameleon would be camouflaged is Scandinavia, the Cottonelle assembly line, or a snow bank.

Launched in 2012 while living in Paris, Flocking Somewhere is a blog of Adam’s travel experiences — mostly abroad but some closer to home. Frequency of posts waned once he and his wife returned to the U.S. in 2015, but his yearning to travel never wavers.

The topic and location of stories will vary, but expect a heavy dash of self-deprecation and an occasional pinch of cultural insight. From chasing sandpipers in South Korea to taste-testing beers through Belgium, all stories will be published with one goal: there’s a 10% chance you’ll find it worthwhile.

Why “Flocking Somewhere”? Well, Adam thought the world was short on bird-related puns. Where is Adam these days? “Oh,” his wife replied in a dismissive tone, “he’s flocking somewhere…”
