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 […]

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 […]

Our Cathay Pacific “Tour de Lounge” – Part Two

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 […]

The Many Foods of Taiwan – Part Three

Part One and Part Two are in the books and Part Three will be the last one of this series, but not for lack of content. I can’t stress just how much we enjoyed the food scene during our two months in Taiwan. Our only issue was there was just too much food to try! […]

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 […]

The Many Foods of Taiwan – Part One

Although Taiwan is a rather small country (slightly bigger than Massachusetts) the island is packed with culture. There is an endless amount of things to do, see, and best of all, eat! Taiwan really is a foodie’s paradise and doesn’t get enough credit for it. Most of the talk about foodie destinations in Asia revolve […]

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, […]

Lounge Review : VN Lounge, Noi Bai Airport Hanoi Vietnam

If you know me, or have read a few of my posts, you’ll know one of my hobbies is travel hacking. In this case, we flew Business Class from Hanoi to Hong Kong on DragonAir (now Cathay Dragon) for just 9,000 British Airways Avios + $16 each, which is a steal considering the same flight […]

“How Much Does it Cost?” Average Prices of Things in Vietnam

Before Breada and I left on this trip I decided I was going to keep track of all of our expenses to help not only gauge how much we were spending per day but also to help give readers an idea of how much they should budget for their own trips. I managed to keep […]

Motorbiking Vietnam Part 4 – Da Lat, Nha Trang, and Qui Nhon

In Part 3 I wrote about my twisty ride up through the mountains to Da Lat, a town situated 5,000 feet above sea level. I was expecting a sleepy mountain town, but what I got was more of a city feel, with proper traffic and a bustle to it you wouldn’t expect from a town […]

The Great Banh Mi Showdown

To say that Anthony and I were excited about the food in Vietnam would be a total understatement. For years we’ve been obsessed with a food truck back home called Bon Me (if you live in Boston stalk their truck and GO EAT THERE NOW) that sells traditional Vietnamese sandwiches known as banh mi and […]
