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 […]
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 […]
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.
Hotel Review: Intercontinental Da Nang Sun Peninsula Resort
When I decided that I wanted to spend my birthday in Hoi An, Vietnam, Anthony told me to pick out a few hotels that I liked, and he would surprise me with one for a few nights of relaxation. The very first hotel that popped up when I searched “fancy hotels Hoi An” was the […]
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.
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. It’s the biggest holiday of the year in Vietnam and we’re excited to be here to witness it firsthand.
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 […]
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 […]
