How do you top a life altering trip? Easy, you plan another one! I wrote in my last post Breada and I decided not to teach in Vietnam like we originally planned, but we still had our ticket booked to go back. I’m not in the business of wasting anything, let alone two business class […]
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 […]
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 […]
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! […]
Hello fellow Trekkers! Things have been a little slow on the writing front lately, mostly because we’ve been settling into a routine at our latest Workaway. Still, I thought it would be good to give a little recap on what we’ve been up to lately.
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 […]

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! ).
The blog isn’t about getting rich and famous, though that would be nice too. It’s a place where people can keep up with what we’re doing, where we’re going, and best of all: how you can do it yourself. You don’t need much money at all to travel, and we’ve met plenty of people with […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
