NIA 2

Lounge Review : NIA Lounge Noi Bai International Airport Hanoi Vietnam

Before we arrived at the airport for our flight to Istanbul, I was unsure which lounge we would end up in. Turkish doesn’t have a lounge of its own in Hanoi, so they use one of the two contract lounges at the airport.

House of Barbaard – An Experience All Gentlemen Deserve

Normally I keep my writing strictly travel related – flights, hotels, things like that, but I had an experience last week I thought was worth sharing, and that experience was a haircut at a little barbershop called House of Barbaard.  To be honest, calling it a haircut is an injustice to the product House of […]

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 […]

Dragonair

Our First Business Class Experience!

After nearly 3 months motorbiking and teaching English in Vietnam, it was time to leave. Originally Hong Kong wasn’t on the planned itinerary, but since it’s a Cathay Pacific hub and I can book Cathay Pacific/Dragonair flights with my British Airways Avios, I figured let’s take a few days and see what the city is […]

Lounge Review : VN Lounge, Noi Bai Airport Hanoi Vietnam

Our First Weeks as ESL Teachers

Before Breada and I ever left on this trip, we had a rough idea of how it was going to go. It was originally supposed to be a round the world trip and we budgeted for about a year, but within the first month that itinerary went up in smoke with our motorbike accident on […]

Motorbiking Vietnam Part 2 – Leaving Saigon for Vung Tau

Leaving Saigon was the biggest pain in the ass, and as much as I enjoyed the city I was happy to get out of there and enjoy some more rural areas. If you can drive in Saigon, you can drive anywhere in the world. Seriously. It’s absolute chaos. Green and red lights mean nothing, one […]

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 […]
