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 […]

14 Months in 14 Pictures

It’s been a month since we’ve been home, and it’s almost as if it never happened. Lucky for us, we have the pictures as proof of our adventures! I literally took thousands upon thousands of pictures along the way, but I thought I would pick just 14, one for each month we were away. These […]

How We Saved Another $700+ on Hotel Rooms

I have officially died and gone to resort heaven. Last week we checked into the Intercontinental Da Nang Sun Peninsula Resort, considered by many to be one of the best resorts in the world, for two nights. I woke up the first morning feeling more refreshed than I have in months, walked out onto a […]

How We Saved $700+ on Hotel Rooms

Hello Fellow Trekkers! Breada and I have now been living in Hoi An, Vietnam for a little over 3 months. We love it here and decided this is where we want to settle down when we fly back to Vietnam later this year. There’s good food, good people, good weather (usually), and a calm atmosphere […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
