SAPA IS A QUAINT MOUNTAIN TOWN IN THE NORTHERN REGION OF VIETNAM. Sapa is like a little German or Austrian Mountain town but without the class and paved roads. Yet, still very charming. It surpassed my expectations for sure. There are endless activities and ways to spend your time in Sapa. But this post is […]

HANOI, VIETNAM IS A BIG CITY THAT FEELS LIKE HOME. When I say Hanoi, Vietnam is big, I mean it’s MASSIVE. But it doesn’t feel like it. Yes, you feel like you’re in a city, but it is separated into neighborhoods. And the central lake makes it feel less…crowded. We had 48 hours in Hanoi […]

UBUD IS A JUNGLE OASIS. Our expectation for Ubud was something along the lines of a hippie filled, mildly chaotic city in the mountains of Bali. That expectation was 100% correct. Ubud is indeed a city in the jungle. It is not simply a surrounded by green, IT IS IN THE GREEN. I start this […]

TOUR B WAS A WIN. If you are looking for crystal blue waters and 7,000 beaches, then El Nido needs to be on your bucket list. (Check out yesterday’s blog post for even more El Nido!) We used El Nido to kill some time, as we had a week gap in our schedule between Bali […]

THE PHILIPPINE BEACHES TAKE THE CAKE. It can be an overwhelming process to determine which of Philippines 7000+ islands you’re going to visit. My hope is that this blog convinces you for or against the tiny area of El Nido Palawan. What To Do In El Nido Book a tour You’ll find that most humans […]
