In honor of Small Business Saturday, it’s time for our annual post featuring travel and outdoor gear from small businesses. Shopping small means getting unique and high quality products you won’t find elsewhere, plus it supports entrepreneurship and innovation. Win-win!
We enjoy exploring the local beer scene wherever we travel, and we especially love finding microbreweries in unlikely places – like Laos. Ryan’s sampled just about all the beers available in Laos, and now he’s sharing where to find the best brews (and which ones to avoid).
You might think of Singapore as just a sterile concrete jungle, but you’d be wrong! The city-state has a hidden side of parks, forests, and walking trails, and the Southern Ridges is probably the most iconic one.
Singapore is the world’s most expensive city, but we found some ways to save money there. Use these tips to stay within your budget when you visit.
Singapore is thought of as sterile and commercial, but it’s got pockets of quirk – and perhaps nothing quirkier than Haw Par Villa. This main event at this free museum/theme park is a massive exhibit on the Buddhist concept of hell, and let’s just say, there’s no inner peace or jolly Buddha here.
Two travelers planning to get married? Say “I do” with these unique travel-themed decorations, accessories, and more.
We made the decision to visit Tam Coc, Vietnam, based mostly on what we’d heard about the scenery – and it turned out to be the perfect setting for boat trips, bike rides, and temple visits.
For long-term travelers in Asia, visiting a capital city means not only seeing some sights, but also taking advantage of some scarce amenities. Ryan did both during his weekend in Phnom Penh (and even found great Mexican food in Cambodia!).
After one full year on the road, here’s everything we’re doing to afford full-time travel and make this lifestyle work.
We’ve officially been on the road for a whole year! Today, we’re looking back on the highs and lows of the past twelve months, including our most exciting adventures and the biggest challenges of working while traveling.
My 24-hour visit to Sihanoukville and Otres Beach was filled with activity – and proved that this area of southern Cambodia is worth a visit (even if it’s a quick one).
Why just look up at Southeast Asia’s limestone mountains when you could climb them? Ryan went rock climbing in Cambodia (with a company called Climbodia, ha!) and tried everything from top roping to rappelling.
Thanks to some lucky timing, we got to attend the 2017 Luang Prabang Film Festival in Laos. This annual festival celebrates Southeast Asian cinema, supports local filmmakers, and gives Lao people a rare chance to go to the movies.
During our trip to George Town, the quirky but charming capital of Penang, we quickly understood why people seem to love this town so much. The stunning street art, interesting architecture, and delicious food are just the beginning.
