Huế, Vietnam: It’s Huế Cool

A visit to Central Vietnam isn’t complete without a trip to Huế- pronounced “hway.” Hence the title – get it? (total dork alert) The city of Huế is about 78 miles north of Hoi An and completely worth the day trip. Our new friend Jerry, who was staying at our Airbnb, invited us to join him – we…

Hoi An, Vietnam: Food, Generosity, Karaoke & More Food

Layovers and Customs – FUN! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – travel days suck. They just do. They’re my least favorite part about gallivanting around the world. Getting from the Philippines to Vietnam was one of those sucky travel days. We flew from Tagbilaran to Manila (7 hour layover in Manila)…

Bohol, Philippines: So Much Beauty On One Island

Our time in Panglao was spent exploring that tiny island and venturing up to the bigger island of Bohol which is over a bridge about 7 miles from where we were staying. Road Trip with a Local Food Pit Stop My friend and co-worker Farrah, who is from Bohol, has a lot of connections around Panglao…

Panglao, Philippines: A Big Party on a Tiny Island

We left Boracay on such a high – but also – the travel day was a bit rough. My birthday was the day before our departure so even though we said we’d “take it easy” that day…it didn’t happen. So waking up at 5am to take a boat to the main island, then a tricycle…

Boracay, Philippines: That Time We Ended Up in a Postcard

We’ve had nothing but “good luck” on our sides this entire trip. No major illnesses, no bad encounters, nothing – knock on wood. Our stresses these days include things like “how do we go about getting our visa?”, “I hope our luggage shows up”, “the water pressure totally sucks in our shower” – I mean…

Amed & Ubud: The Last Two Visits in the Paradise of Bali

We loved our visit on the tiny little island of Nusa Lembongan but, as usual, we’re always excited to get to our next destination. The anticipation of what’s around the corner is always keeping us going. Our next stop was a small fishing town on the east side of Bali called Amed. Talking with the…

Nusa Lembongan, Bali: A Quiet Little Piece of Heaven

Although we loved Seminyak right off the bat – we can only take touristy and busy places for so long. After our fix of feeling catered to for a bit, it was time to move on to a place we felt out of our element again. We booked our entire Bali trip before ever arriving so…

Seminyak, Bali: A Welcomed Tourist Trap

At last we arrived in Bali! After a horrific and miserable flight from Kuala Lumpur we finally made it to the island we’d only seen or heard about in movies. Bali is one of those places you hear about while growing up that just sounds so perfect. The great beaches, low-key island vibe – the…

That Time I Sat Beside My Worst Nightmare On A Flight

Our flight from Kuala Lumpur to Bali was anticipated for days. We were so excited to get out of Malaysia and into Indonesia. Malaysia was fine. It had it’s highlights but it wasn’t our fave. For me – travel and transit days are my least favorite thing about exploring the world. I don’t do well…

Kuala Lumpur: It’s Complicated

“Malaysia – the ‘true Asia’” This is the slogan of this country. And having visited a bit of Asia at this point, we were thrown off by this blanket statement. What does the “true Asia” mean exactly? If it means mass confusion, bizarre rules (some enforced, others not at all) and a shit ton of people?…
