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 […]

JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay in 15 Pictures

Xin Chào from the beautiful island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam!  We’ve been staying at the JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay aka Lamarck University for four days now with another three to go. The entire resort is themed after a fictional university, dreamed up by acclaimed architect Bill Bensley. The amount of thought that went into […]

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 […]

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.

Flight Review – Turkish Airlines A330 Business Class Hanoi to Istanbul

I had been looking forward to this flight since I booked in back in September. Turkish Airlines is highly regarded as one of the best airlines in Europe, if not one of the best in the world. They’re particularly known for their food, and believe it or not I actually enjoy airline food. To be […]

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 […]

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 […]
