Tailor Made

Tailor Made

We finally arrived in Hoi An. A spot I had been looking forward to since we arrived in Vietnam. Why? Because it was here that I would get my custom made dresses! We headed straight to the tailor on day one. I had been given a recommendation by a girl we met in Sri Lanka for a tailor and also had the name of a tailor that was used by a girl who’s blog I follow, one was closed so…

Let’s Go Chasing Waterfalls

Let’s Go Chasing Waterfalls

Da Lat came as a refreshing change to many of our prior stops. It is a quaint little mountain town with fresh air and beautiful scenery. This also comes with quite the climate change. It was the first place in Southeast Asia that was legitimately cold (or if you’re not Athena – just cool). We stayed at Mr. Peace’s Backpackers Hostel. A place that we would recommend to anyone traveling through Da Lat. It is run by Mr. Peace, his…

Mui Ne

Mui Ne

Mui Ne was pictured as a stunning beach with giant white and red sand dunes nearby that you were able to rent quads and drive on. We arrived at our hotel, which was beautiful and checked out the beach which was… not. I am not sure where the pictures were taken that we found on google, but the water was good enough, definitely not as blue as we saw online or anywhere near the Thai beaches we had visited just…

Our plan was to head from Cambodia overland to Phu Quoc…

Suit Yourself

Suit Yourself

Finally! Our first visitors! We couldn’t wait to have friends from home come for a visit AND have them be with us for Thanksgiving. What a treat! I (Rob) used to work with Matt at Gentiva prior to setting off on this trip and Kyle was his good friend who he convinced to come along. Neither of them had ever been to Asia before, so we were thrilled to show them what we’d learned about street food, temples and the…

Oh Sheeit!

Oh Sheeit!

Pai was different from any other stop we made in Thailand, the first reason being the weather. It was cool enough to wear jeans comfortably there at night. This was the first time we felt temperatures below the high 80’s in over a month. We were very pleased. It is a small town up in the mountains that hasn’t been entirely overrun with tourists yet… just hippies. J It was definitely hippy haven there. We checked into our hostel and…

Yi Peng, New Friends, New Adventures

Yi Peng, New Friends, New Adventures

We had planned all of our SE Asia dates around Chiang Mai and the famous Lantern Festival. I couldn’t have been more amped to see the festival so I was a little disappointed when I heard that they decided to do the lantern release very very early this year and we had missed it, however we would still be in town for the Yi Peng festival. There is a lot of mislabeled information about the release and the festival on…
