    Travel: Three Weeks in Southeast Asia

    Three weeks in Southeast Asia – well, more like 23 days, yet if you take away the two full travel days to get there from Canada, then ya, 3 weeks! April 13 of last year is the day we set our alarm for 4:44am. Then we caught a plane to Hong Kong. So amazing. The trip took an abundance of planning – visas, accommodations and sites to see; not to mention planning for down time, which is vital to any successful trip. Here is where…

No signs, or at least there weren’t any signs when we were there. Then we got yelled at as we left – it was kind of funny, actually. Okay, let’s get to relaxing!

In Hoi An, I fell in love with two places that are so amazing at helping; and, the food is awesome! Eats in Hoi An Minh Hien This place is vegetarian, yet so good. Seriously.

    Travel: Bikes in Hoi An Vietnam

    Hoi An Vietnam is made awesome by bikes. Our hotel, the Golden Bell Homestay, offered them for free with our stay. Most hotels do the same, yet be sure before you book. In Siem Reap we rented them for $2.00 a day, which is quite low. Bikes in Hoi An First, it’s hot in Hoi An so be sure to cover up with sunscreen. Second, know where you’re going. On our first bike trip we were headed to The Dingo Cafe – more to come…
