Jack’s Cat Cafe: An Animal Lover’s Paradise

As you probably know by now, Anthony and I love Hoi An.  It’s our favorite place in Vietnam, and even on our third visit, the charm still holds up.  Hoi An may be small, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in activities.  Whether you like the beach, shopping, food, history, culture…Hoi […]

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 […]

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 […]

Two Days In Singapore

We’re moving pretty fast this trip.  During our last jaunt around Southeast Asia, our time frame didn’t have a solid expiration date.  This gave us the luxury of staying places for more days than most, and allowed us to have a fairly flexible itinerary.  This time, however, we only have three months.  This means our […]

House of Barbaard – An Experience All Gentlemen Deserve

Normally I keep my writing strictly travel related – flights, hotels, things like that, but I had an experience last week I thought was worth sharing, and that experience was a haircut at a little barbershop called House of Barbaard.  To be honest, calling it a haircut is an injustice to the product House of […]

A Year of Travels : A Reflection

Today marks exactly one year since Breada and I set off on our big adventure around the world. Sometimes I think back and it feels like we left yesterday and other times it feels like we’ve been away for years.

Hoi An

How We Saved $700+ on Hotel Rooms

Hello Fellow Trekkers! Breada and I have now been living in Hoi An, Vietnam for a little over 3 months. We love it here and decided this is where we want to settle down when we fly back to Vietnam later this year. There’s good food, good people, good weather (usually), and a calm atmosphere […]

Din Tai Fung : A Culinary Delight That’s Easy on the Budget

Ever since I was little, I’ve been completely obsessed with dumplings.  When my sister and I were kids our parents always ordered dumplings from the local Chinese place for dinner since we were still fairly picky eaters.  As I grew up, my taste buds matured, but I never lost my love for those little pockets […]
