Why Are We Travelling

There is no simple answer. It's a culmination of many things but it really can be summed up in our title, Let Go, Let's Go. We are letting go of our daily life, of who we are at home, and just going. No plan, no itinerary, it’s a lets see where life takes us, kind of journey.   People always ask us why we are doing this. Like there is something slightly wrong with us. Are we searching for something more? Not sure. No mid-life crisis, no life-changing event, so there was no catalyst there. Are we running away? Probably not. We...

A Photographer’s Guide to Angkor Wat

I'm sure many blogs out there would tell you their "Ultimate Guide to Angkor Wat" only after spending no more than a few days in Siem Reap. We spent about 6 days in the city with a 3 day ticket for Angkor Wat. Let me start by saying there is no ultimate way to tackle this place. Angkor Wat is HUGE....

Cappadocia: Balloons, Baskets & Baloney

It's impossible to Google best travel destination or most beautiful travel destination and NOT see a picture of the balloons soaring over the extreme marvelous landscapes of Goreme (Cappadocia). You immediately look to see where it is. Turkey, that's where. It seems like everyone, and anyone who calls themselves a "traveller" has a picture on Instagram. I'm not sure if it’s a bucket list thing, but recently, I've been seeing more and more photos. And I have a bit of a problem with that. I see the baloney. You see, when we went in October, we assumed, oh it is low...

Prague, A city I wanted to love

After backpacking for the first time in Europe some years ago, I’ve met alot of travellers from Budapest coming and going to a few cities: Prague being one of them, and the other Split. Hearing their tales of gothic and medieval adventures, it had been on the list of places to visit. Vicki had pushed me to travel with a good friend, Manish, since we haven’t really travelled anywhere together. He had suggested that we visit Prague in between Munich.. Which I thought wasn’t too bad of an idea. Our train ride from Munich was tiring. The first few hours...

Paradise Inside an Airport

Our first guest post from our good friend, Jimmy. Read on, folks! Any traveller with enough flights under their belt has experienced the dreaded layover, or the wait for a connecting flight. No one likes to be at an airport longer than they need to be. It’s changed the way we pack and go through our travel check-list. Luggage: check. Passport: check. Tickets: check. Something do read/do in the airport: …check? If you’re lucky, the wait will only be 2 hours long. Just enough time to navigate through the maze of the airport (all airports are designed as a maze), clear security...

Sitting in a Hot Pot

We love the term “hot pot” because it 1) Makes total sense – sitting in an enclosed space of geothermically heated water and 2) Is the same word for an Asian style of cooking that we always crave – yum. Icelanders have perfected the art of relaxing by the pool. Every village has a swimming pool and they are essentially the bars or water coolers of Iceland. ...

6 Things I Wish I Knew at a Hawker Center

During the short period of time I've spent in Singapore, I've learned a lot about Singapore's iconic hawker centers. By no means am I calling myself an expert, but I think I've upgraded from being a newbie. I know enough just to get by. The layout of each center is fairly straight forward each food center is different and may contain a few to a lot of stalls with about 2-4 beverage stalls. I wanted to list 6 things I wish I knew before stepping foot inside a food center....

The Struggle is Real: Men’s Travel Clothing

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" text_align="left" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]So Vicki and I have frequented MEC, Europe Bound, Sail, Atmosphere as well as online stores like backcountry.com or jet-setter. We've seen styles from Prana, Ex-Officio, Nau, Ten Trees, etc. Basically anything you could think of for travel gear, we've visited. One thing we've really noticed out of all those places is that the words "travel clothing" is synonymous to "back country" meaning, travellers areoften hiking or climbing and in need of lightweight technical clothing with high visibility colours. Which really isn't always the case for us and I'm assuming everyone else.   For the type of...

Iceland 101 – Part 1: Where to Stay

Most of you all know that both Vicki and I LOVE Iceland. Each visit, we've tried to do something differently: we've camped; drove the entire ring road; ventured off in the magnificent West Fjords; hiked and ice climbed on one of many glaciers; explored cities and small fishing towns; swam in pools and hot rivers; and ate local or touristy delicacies....
