The Many Foods of Taiwan – Part Two

In Part One of this series we went over some Taiwanese staples like pepper buns, gua bao, lu rou fan, and more. We’re continuing with five new dishes in Part Two, and have even more to present in a future post! Taiwan really is a foodie’s paradise, but there are just too many foods to […]

Top Things to do in Wanhua District, Taipei

Wanhua District has been our home for the last three weeks so we thought it would be a good idea to give our readers an idea of what it’s like. Wanhua District, originally called “Monka” or “Bangka”, is Taipei’s oldest district. It can be divided up into three sections : northern, central, and southern. Northern […]

Working in a Hostel in Taipei, Settling Down, and our Next Adventures

Hello fellow Trekkers! Things have been a little slow on the writing front lately, mostly because we’ve been settling into a routine at our latest Workaway. Still, I thought it would be good to give a little recap on what we’ve been up to lately.

Breada’s Top Five Experiences from the First Six Months

These six months have been some of the best in my life.  This trip has challenged us mentally and physically, but every challenge has been worth the reward.  We’ve been to five countries, eaten tons of delicious food, and made total fools of ourselves attempting to speak a host of new languages.  It’s been an […]

Breada’s Top 10 Travel Goals

Traveling long term has always been a major goal of mine, but now that I’ve started to cross that off of my list I’ve realized how many travel centric goals I have.  A lot of mine were the same as Anthony’s, and this list doesn’t even make a dent in what I want to do, […]

Credit Cards – A Travel Hacker’s Best Friend

I love credit cards. When I tell people this I usually get strange looks like I’m crazy and whatever I tell them after is dismissed because of their preconceived notions surrounding these divisive pieces of plastic ( or metal in some cases! ).

A Westerner’s Guide to Traveling Around Taiwan

When Anthony and I were deciding where to go after Vietnam we had a little trouble picking a destination.  Ideally we wanted to stay in Southeast Asia, but since we knew we would be going back to Thailand in November to meet his sister and her boyfriend, that didn’t seem like a good choice, and […]

How You Can Help!

The blog isn’t about getting rich and famous, though that would be nice too. It’s a place where people can keep up with what we’re doing, where we’re going, and best of all: how you can do it yourself. You don’t need much money at all to travel, and we’ve met plenty of people with […]

Motorbiking Part 8 – The Train

This post isn’t so much about us motorbiking, but considering it was a leg of our motorbiking journey I figured it was only fair to include it in the Motorbiking segment. We spent 5 awesome nights in Phong Nha, eating delicious farm to table (literally) chicken and riding around the Phong Nha Ke Bang National […]

Motorbiking Vietnam Part 6 – The Hai Van Pass and the Abandoned Water Park!

Leaving Hoi An was nearly heartbreaking. We spent 10 days there (11? I don’t know I’ve lost track of time) and we loved every single one of them. If it wasn’t a small town and had a decent market for English teachers it would be at the top of our list of places to stay […]

Motorbiking Vietnam Part 5 – Stranded

I’ve been slacking hard in the post department lately. It’s not that I don’t want to write, because I do. I enjoy keeping my friends and family up to date on what we’re up to, but sometimes the last thing I want to do after a long day in scorching Southeast Asian heat is to […]

Motorbiking Vietnam Part 1 – Buying Our Bikes

For anyone who knows me back home, you’ll know I loved my Buddy 125 scooter. I never thought I would enjoy being on two wheels, but as soon as I got her I fell in love and within a couple weeks took the course to receive my motorcycle license. Unfortunately, I had to sell her […]
