Booking the Trip of a Lifetime – Part One

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 […]

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 […]

Flight Review : Swiss Airlines CS100 Business Class Budapest to Zurich

This was the first of two flights on the day, and honestly the one I was least looking forward to. I was just personally looking forward to our long haul flight back to Boston a little more. It’s also a short-haul flight and European carriers are known to use a EuroBusiness model, which is a […]

The Real Budweiser Budvar Brewery Tour

I can still remember the first time I ever heard of the Czech Budweiser. It was 2011 and I was in Vienna, drinking at the hostel with my buddy Dominic. I asked the bartender what he had for good beers and he replied “Budweiser”. I gave him some wise crack somewhere along the lines of […]

Lounge Review: Turkish Airlines International CIP Lounge

The first time I entered an airport lounge was over ten years ago.  I was flying to Peru with my god family and my godfather traveled frequently for work so he had status, thus getting us all access to a lounge in Dallas during our layover.  I can’t remember exactly what the lounge was like, […]

The First Thing I Do When Researching A New Destination

The title is a little clickbaity I admit, but this really is the first thing I do. What is it, you’re wondering? It’s one simple Google search, and one that has benefited us immensely in cities all across the world.

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 […]

Hotel Review: Intercontinental Da Nang Sun Peninsula Resort

When I decided that I wanted to spend my birthday in Hoi An, Vietnam, Anthony told me to pick out a few hotels that I liked, and he would surprise me with one for a few nights of relaxation.  The very first hotel that popped up when I searched “fancy hotels Hoi An” was the […]

Traveling For One Year: Easier or Harder Than Expected?

The first two things Anthony and I ever bonded over was our love of fried cherry peppers in calamari, and our passion for travel.  Over the course of our relationship we’ve been lucky enough to have many experiences with both travel and calamari, but I’d say this trip easily wins out as the best experience […]

A Year of Travels : A Reflection

Today marks exactly one year since Breada and I set off on our big adventure around the world. Sometimes I think back and it feels like we left yesterday and other times it feels like we’ve been away for years.

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 […]
