14 Months in 14 Pictures

It’s been a month since we’ve been home, and it’s almost as if it never happened. Lucky for us, we have the pictures as proof of our adventures! I literally took thousands upon thousands of pictures along the way, but I thought I would pick just 14, one for each month we were away. These […]

Flight Review : Swiss Airlines CS100 Business Class Budapest to Zurich

This was the first of two flights on the day, and honestly the one I was least looking forward to. I was just personally looking forward to our long haul flight back to Boston a little more. It’s also a short-haul flight and European carriers are known to use a EuroBusiness model, which is a […]

Lounge Review: Turkish Airlines International CIP Lounge

The first time I entered an airport lounge was over ten years ago.  I was flying to Peru with my god family and my godfather traveled frequently for work so he had status, thus getting us all access to a lounge in Dallas during our layover.  I can’t remember exactly what the lounge was like, […]

The First Thing I Do When Researching A New Destination

The title is a little clickbaity I admit, but this really is the first thing I do. What is it, you’re wondering? It’s one simple Google search, and one that has benefited us immensely in cities all across the world.

Lounge Review : NIA Lounge Noi Bai International Airport Hanoi Vietnam

Before we arrived at the airport for our flight to Istanbul, I was unsure which lounge we would end up in. Turkish doesn’t have a lounge of its own in Hanoi, so they use one of the two contract lounges at the airport.

Flight Review – Turkish Airlines A330 Business Class Hanoi to Istanbul

I had been looking forward to this flight since I booked in back in September. Turkish Airlines is highly regarded as one of the best airlines in Europe, if not one of the best in the world. They’re particularly known for their food, and believe it or not I actually enjoy airline food. To be […]

Traveling For One Year: Easier or Harder Than Expected?

The first two things Anthony and I ever bonded over was our love of fried cherry peppers in calamari, and our passion for travel.  Over the course of our relationship we’ve been lucky enough to have many experiences with both travel and calamari, but I’d say this trip easily wins out as the best experience […]

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.

How We Saved Another $700+ on Hotel Rooms

I have officially died and gone to resort heaven. Last week we checked into the Intercontinental Da Nang Sun Peninsula Resort, considered by many to be one of the best resorts in the world, for two nights. I woke up the first morning feeling more refreshed than I have in months, walked out onto a […]

Food Poisoning 101

One of the negative things about traveling in underdeveloped countries is the looming possibility of food poisoning.  Before Anthony and I left on this trip we both knew it wouldn’t be a matter of “if” but rather a matter of “when”, and so far I’ve been lucky enough to get hit with it twice.  The […]

What We’ve Been Up To Lately (December)

We had our first visitors last month! My sister Brittany and her fiance Chad decided to take the plunge and hop on a 16 hour flight to visit us in Thailand! It was their first time to Asia and they only had a week so we were really cranking it the entire time, but it […]

Sorry for the long delay in between Parts 1 and 2 of our “Tour de Lounge”! We’ve been pretty busy, between spending time with my sister Brittany and her fiance Chad to hanging out in the mountains of Northern Thailand, and finally settling down into our new jobs in Hoi An, Vietnam. Now that we’re […]
