Kathmandu/Lumbini!

After the scariest landing I’ve been through yet, we landed in Kathmandu, Nepal!  The process through the airport was pretty easy. It drives me crazy that with all of the airports we have been through they don’t have a more logical process for people getting visas.  When we walk into the airport we get in […]

Koh Tao!

Paradise!  If you’re wanting clear blue waters, white sand, and activities ranging scuba diving to bouldering on their “mountains” then this is the place for it!  We bought a bus to ferry ticket so we didn’t have to worry about finding an AM bus and stayed at Salsa Hostel in Chumphon. We did a walk […]

Chiang Mai

Out of our time traveling, I think I would have to say Khao Soi is the most amazing thing I have tasted!  Khao Soi is a coconut based curry. I haven’t come across this curry in Bangkok or Southern Thailand, so to my knowledge, Northern Thailand is the only place to find it.  Chiang Mai […]

Phuket/Koh Chang Noi

I think before we even started our adventure, I knew South Thailand was one of the places I was most looking forward to.  I have always loved the ocean ever since the first time I saw it in Florida as a kid. Unfortunately, I was not prepared to be robbed on my way to this […]

Chiang Mai!

For the time being, I am going to skip my Bangkok blog since Walter and I will be going back for a few days here and there.  Bangkok is one of the most affordable airports to fly out of to get to neighboring countries so it will be a hub we use a few times.  […]

Cambodia! (Angkor Wat area)

This will be short and sweet!  For the two days (coming back later) we spent in Cambodia we only tried a few places (Angkor Wat), and Amok is a MUST!  It is the dish that, at least this area, is known for. I’m sure there is a lot more to it, but Amok is comprised […]

HCMC –> Cambodia

Ho Chi Minh City → Cambodia!  The airport in HCMC was a bit weird.  Our flight was leaving at 0820, but the counter to check the luggage was not going to be open until 0630.  If you know anything about me, I like to be there a few hours early so I can sit in […]

Dalat Foods!

Since Dalat is a mountain town it was on the pricier side of what our usual budget was.  We try to stay around $2-$4 per person when it comes to food, which is easily doable. Trip Adviser of course only has crap recommendations.  They really need to hire some budget travelers to get out there. […]

Ho Chi Minh City

First off, let’s have a geography lesson.  We have wondered our whole trip why people refer to the city as Saigon and others as Ho Chi Minh City.  When the North and South were divided, it was as a whole referred to as Saigon. After the war, most of the area then became known as […]

Da Lat!

So this story starts out quite similar to the others.  I ended paying $2 more than our usual costs for a ride to the next place with Cat Thien Hai..  It was for a “limousine” with recliner chairs and lots of legroom! (See pics for guidance) However, when Walter and I arrived at the loading […]
