Two Days In Kuala Lumpur

After Singapore it was time to move on to Malaysia.  We spent about two weeks exploring the country with our first city being the capital of Kuala Lumpur.  KL is a bustling modern metropolis that we both instantly liked.  It has the same bright light feel as Singapore, but with a little more of the […]

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 […]

Booking the Trip of a Lifetime – Part One

How do you top a life altering trip? Easy, you plan another one! I wrote in my last post Breada and I decided not to teach in Vietnam like we originally planned, but we still had our ticket booked to go back. I’m not in the business of wasting anything, let alone two business class […]

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 […]

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 […]

Settling Down in Hoi An

Xin Chao fellow trekkers and Chúc Mừng Năm Mới! Today is the Vietnamese New Year’s Day and the start of the week-long celebrations and pilgrimages many locals take to their hometowns to visit family.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Top Things To Do in Kaohsiung

As we’ve mentioned before, Anthony and I didn’t really know what to expect when we decided to make a stop in Taiwan.  What we got was a country with great food, museums, scenery, and people.  We had planned on heading from Taipei to Tainan, Kaohsiung, and Kenting, but after that we weren’t quite sure how […]
