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 […]

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, […]

Six Months Later – My Top 5 Experiences

It’s been a wild first six months of our journey. We’ve taken 6 flights, traveled through 5 countries, explored dozens of cities and towns, and made more friends and memories than I can count. The trip has already been everything I had hoped for and more, but we’re not done yet! We still have a […]

Credit Cards – A Travel Hacker’s Best Friend

I love credit cards. When I tell people this I usually get strange looks like I’m crazy and whatever I tell them after is dismissed because of their preconceived notions surrounding these divisive pieces of plastic ( or metal in some cases! ).

A Westerner’s Guide to Traveling Around Taiwan

When Anthony and I were deciding where to go after Vietnam we had a little trouble picking a destination.  Ideally we wanted to stay in Southeast Asia, but since we knew we would be going back to Thailand in November to meet his sister and her boyfriend, that didn’t seem like a good choice, and […]

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 […]

Motorbiking Part 9 – The Final Leg and Selling our Bikes

In Motorbiking Part 8 I talked about our overnight train ride from Dong Hoi to Ninh Binh, and how it wasn’t exactly our favorite city in Vietnam. There were a few factors that played into this. First, Breada was sick most of the time we were there. For 2 out of the 4 days we […]

Anthony’s Top 10 Travel Goals

I think everyone should keep a list of goals in mind for anything in life. It keeps you focused and gives you a constant reminder of what you’re trying to achieve. Travel is no different. I decided to write a list of my top 10 goals I wanted to accomplish traveling, not necessarily on this […]

Motorbiking Part 8 – The Train

This post isn’t so much about us motorbiking, but considering it was a leg of our motorbiking journey I figured it was only fair to include it in the Motorbiking segment. We spent 5 awesome nights in Phong Nha, eating delicious farm to table (literally) chicken and riding around the Phong Nha Ke Bang National […]

Ho Chi Minh Road

Motorbiking Part 7 – The Ho Chi Minh Road

We left Hue one morning for Phona Nha, roughly 225km (140 miles ) away if you take Highway 1. If you’ve read any of these Motorbiking posts, you’ll know I loathe Highway 1 so we decided to mix the route up a little bit. We still had to take a little bit of that dreaded […]

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 […]
