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.

The Always Bustling Phnom Penh

A Love Letter to Phnom Penh

As I’ve mentioned before, our initial impression of Cambodia wasn’t the best, and after a few days in Siem Reap we decided to only spend about two weeks total in the whole country.  The beaches weren’t really something we felt like we needed to do since we spent SO much time at the beach in […]

Our Visit to Angkor Wat: Day Two

After spending a little over an hour at Angkor Wat the previous evening, Anthony and I were ready for a full day of temples, jungle, and photos in interesting places thanks to our wonderful guide, Mao.  We packed a few snacks in our bags, made sure our water bottles were full, laid out our clothes […]

My First Impressions of Cambodia, and Why You Should NEVER Let Your Empty Stomach Decide Where to Eat.

After spending a month in Thailand it was time to move on to Cambodia. Anthony and I spent an entire day (literally 15 hours) traveling from Krabi Province in Thailand to Siem Reap in Cambodia. It was a very long day with the bumpiest bus ride of all time, but we made it safe and […]

Bangkok to Siem Reap by Bus

We had decided after a month of traveling through Thailand that Cambodia would be our next stop. We had a fully paid ticket from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, but this was purchased for the sole purpose of having a return ticket out of the country in case someone at the airlines […]

Why You Shouldn’t Plan Too Far In Advance : A Cautionary Tale

A lot of people ( more like 3 ) have messaged us wondering when we were going to post some new content. The last couple of weeks Breada and I have been on island time, which is really just a euphemism for we felt like doing nothing but relax on the beach and eat all […]
