A Beautiful World

We’ve been lucky enough to travel to many parts of this beautiful world. Our journeys are defined by seeking out good food, rich culture, and spectacular nature. While we travel often, we’re not five-star tourists. We’ve learned many tricks about budgeting while still travelling in comfort, so you’ll find much of what we share within your reach. Here you’ll find our discoveries, as well as practical information to help you plan you own trips. Life is short; stop dreaming – start buying tickets! 

A city pulsing with life, diversity and possibilities.

An ancient and rich culture, much loved by travellers.

A thriving multi-cultural city, and our home.

Navigating Chaos: Booking a Train in Laos

Learn more about Laos’ high speed train between Vientiane and Luang Prabang. The new C-Trains are reliable, but be prepared for security screenings akin to airports and challenges booking tickets. Here we offer practical advice for navigating the third party booking system, and managing your approach to security to help with your journey.

Paradise Unplugged

This perfect, rustic getaway – tucked away on Koh Rong Sanloem, Cambodia –  will help you discover your rhythm in paradise. This rare, off-the-grid experience helped us disconnect from the digital chaos of modern life and reconnect with nature and ourselves.

Travel Vaccines for South-East Asia

Travelling to remote destinations in tropical climates – especially if you’re spending many weeks or months there – comes with unique potential health hazards.  In the case of potential health risks, we’re firm believers that prevention is the best medicine. This is a description of the vaccines we got for our 6 month trip to South-East Asia, including: Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand.

Antler Academy​

Visit the North Pole, just a 20-minute drive from Fairbanks Alaska, for a wonderfully tacky visit to Santa’s House and the Reindeer Academy. The reindeer pen – where we learned fascinating facts and had a chance to feed these gentle creatures – is the best part.
