Why I Travel Hack

I’m not rich, and likely never will be. Until a few years ago, my standard travel accommodation was a hostel dorm room and that was ok with me. I didn’t know any better. Flying business class was just a dream, let alone first class. Then, as I was browsing the internet, I stumbled upon travel […]

La Saigonese Lounge SGN

Lounge Review : La Saigonese Lounge Tan Son Nhat International Airport

As much as we love flying premium cabins, sometimes it just doesn’t make sense. For a flight that’s just an hour or two, a budget airline will suffice and Southeast Asia is chock full of them. The one big downside : no lounge access. Enter : Priority Pass!

Lounge Review – Apricot Lounge, Tan Son Nhat International Airport

Some people show up to the airport at the last possible minute. Others, like us, try to get there as early as possible to enjoy some time in the lounge before jet-setting to our next destination. In Vietnam this is especially true. The airport gates are a microcosm of the entire country : crowded and […]

Little Adam’s Peak – A Day Hike Through Ella, Sri Lanka

In the hill country of Sri Lanka lies the sleepy mountain town of Ella. It’s quiet and peaceful, yet has enough to keep anyone busy for a couple days. It boasts some beautiful sights : Little Adam’s Peak , The Nine Arches Bridge, and tea fields as far as the eye can see. We managed […]

Qatar Airways

Mistake Fares : Book Now and Sort It Out Later

I’m writing this from 36,000 feet in the air, sitting in seat 3A on a Qatar Airways flight headed to Doha. Breada and I just wrapped up three weeks in South Africa, a country we’ve wanted to visit for years but has always been a little out of reach. We’re flying business class, which is […]

Cape Town Waterfront

Traveling To Cape Town in The Middle of a Water Crisis : Should You Go?

One of the biggest stories of the last year has been the Cape Town water crisis. If you live under a rock I’ll give you the abridged version : Cape Town is running out of water!

Booking the Trip of a Lifetime – Part Three

So if you read Part Two, you’ll know we used a mix of sign up bonuses from credit cards and some good old fashioned hustle to build up enough points for this trip, and you can too! It takes a little bit of time and effort, but anybody with good credit can use these tools […]

Bidvest Lounge, HLA

Lounge Review : Bidvest Premier Lounge, Lanseria International Airport, Johannesburg

I love having a quiet place to go when waiting for a flight. There’s nothing worse than having to sit for a couple of hours at a crowded gate and being forced to pay for overpriced airport food. I refuse to do it, and I suggest you all should too!

Saigon : Revisited

Vietnam was the third country Breada and I visited in 2016, right at the beginning of our epic 14 month trip abroad. I can still remember our bus ride from Phnom Penh. I was so excited, as always when going somewhere new. By this point I had traveled to 13 countries in my life and […]
