Philippines: Carabao Island

After a few days on the beautiful white beach in Boracay (mobbed with travelers!), we wanted a few days of quiet and leave the mobs of tourists to their booming music. We literally went on google maps, zoomed in on Boracay and looked for the next closest island to run away too. To the north of Boracay there is a sleepy little island, that no pokes at and is virtually untouched by the money and flashing lights in Boracay. The lovely little island of... Read More

Photo Friday: Colorful Sunset on Carabao

      We snuck away from the party scene at Boracay for a few lazy nights at the neighboring island, Carabao. The sunset was one of the most impressive sunsets we’ve ever seen. The sky kept changing every few minutes starting with a bright pink until eventually the darkness of night mixed with the last of the sun’s orange rays long enough for me to take this shot!      Read More

Bali by Motorbike: The Route

We arrived in Bali with a week to take in the sights & sounds of this world renowned island. We’d usually spend longer exploring such a distinguished destination, but WORK limited us to a weekend to weekend trip (BOO!). We decided the best way to tackle Bali was by motorbike, giving us complete freedom & ease to move around. Bali is more expensive than other South East Asian destinations, so we were on the lookout for Bali deals. Here... Read More

Bali’s Top 5

Bali Ha’i may call you, Any night, any day, In your heart, you’ll hear it call you: “Come away…Come away.” Bali Ha’i will whisper In the wind of the sea: “Here am I, your special island! Come to me, come to me!” Bali called to us, like it does to so many…. & we came! We were granted one week to escape Saigon’s motorbike fumes and relax amongst Bali’s peacefully green rice terraces,... Read More

South Vietnam Beaches: Sand Sledding & Midnight Swims

Rhys or Superman? As far as beaches in the South go, Mui Ne is Ho Chi Minh-ers best choice of beach to crash at for the weekend. Around a 5 hour bus ride away, it provides visitors with a long beautiful stretch of white sand, warm, CLEAN water, kite surfing, and peace away from the craziness of Saigon life. We went into Sinh Tours (the office is in Pham Ngu Lao, Backpacker’s District) to book an overnight bus to the sleepy coastal city. Neither... Read More

ONLY in India…!

India is a country that stands out all on its own. It felt more like visiting Mars to me than a place on planet Earth. It’s colorful. The people have huge personalities. The lack of hygiene. Anything goes. We would stop, stare, jaw-dropped open, gawk, point, and never believe our eyes or the sites, sounds, and smells around us. When I say anything goes, I mean ANYTHING. We were the ONLY wide-eyed, bewildered looking fools around. To the rest... Read More

South India’s Best Beaches

  The North of India is notoriously crazy, polluted, and overall, makes for an intense experience. The South of India welcomes backpackers to sunny beaches, alcohol sales after weeks of sobriety, and a general calming feeling that the North is missing out on. We skipped around the coast line hitting beaches in GOA, Kerala, Pondicherry, and even Mumbai. The beaches were great… even if they don’t compare to Thailand’s crystal... Read More

Photo Friday: Jeju’s Statue of the Sea

  Jeju’s Statue of the Sea   Jeju Island is littered with these funny little  statues. They are made from lava rock and are often placed looking out over the sea. This photo was taken at one of Jeju’s many beautiful beaches, Hameeok near Jeju City.    Read More

Jeju’s Hot Spots

Jeju’s infamous Harubang guarding the waters at Hamdeok Beach Jeju is Korea’s top vacation spot & honeymoon island (with matching newly wed couples EVERYWHERE!). Dubbed the ‘Hawaii of Korea’, Jeju is scattered with volcanoes and boasts the best beaches in the country… although Hawaii comparisons may be a bit of an exaggeration!?! Nonetheless, it’s a must-see destination for anyone living in or passing... Read More
