    Travel: Jim Thompson House in Bangkok

    Jim Thompson House in Bangkok This is our first stop on day two of our three days in Bangkok. The best part about visiting the site is that you get a tour of the grounds. The tour is informative and about 30 minutes long. We had a wonderful guide – she answered so many of our questions and taught me things I’ll never forget, like how raised door frames prevent bad spirits from entering the room. History So, who is Jim Thompson? He’s an American…

    Travel: 3 Days in Bangkok

    Three days in Bangkok Our three days in Bangkok were so much fun, so hot, and so many memories. This was our second stop on our Southeast Asia trip this spring. After we spent two days and two nights in Hong Kong we flew AirAsia from HKG to DMK. We got in around noon and headed straight to our hotel. Note to anyone arriving at Don Muang Airport, be sure you negotiate your taxi fare. I knew to do this from reading other travel blogs…

    Travel: Eating Gluten Free in Hong Kong

    Eating gluten free in Hong Kong – this was a bit of a challenge for me, however, with some tips and tricks – or rather, some wonderful spots to eat, you’ll be fine. We had a great two days in Hong Kong and you can, too. Keep reading below and take some advise from me. If something is good and gluten free while you’re travelling then eat up. Just eat up!

    Travel: 2 Days in Hong Kong

    2 days in Hong Kong! It’s time to visit the first stop on our 23 day vacation to Southeast Asia! That’s right, I’ve finally sorted through thousands of photos from our Southeast Asia trip and it’s time to share. Seemed only fitting that since we left on April 13 and that I start blogging about it on June 13. Ya, that’s fitting. I will note, however, that out of all of my photos I’m most disappointed with the ones from Hong Kong. Perhaps it was…

    Travel: Home Safe

    Home safe and happy to be on Canadian soil, yet happier to give Lily snuggles. Awww, and to have slept in our own bed last night – so awesome. Although, I’m not too sure if staying awake for the whole 28-30 hour travel day yesterday was smart…I think it might catch up with me! Home Safe You can see that we’re quite tired in our selfie shot yesterday from the Vancouver airport as we waited to catch our third connection. The one thing that’s been…

    Travel: Hoi An Snapshot

    The ancient town that was credited as a world heritage site in 1999 is full of history. Although they heavily rely on tourism and the shop owners seem to be more aggressive than any other place we’ve visited, the town is beautiful. Hoi An is a bike friendly town and our hotel has free town bikes for guests to use – it’s awesome. The odd thing is, however, that the city has more people than my home town of Sault Ste. Marie and yet I…

    Travel: Ho Chi Minh City Snapshot

    Ho Chi Minh City snapshot – well, the capital of Vietnam and former Saigon is home to more than 8 million people. It seems like everyone is out and about on motorbikes. Especially when it’s time to cross at a roundabout intersection. They’re so busy! Our time in HCMC was wonderful. We filled our bellies with some of the best pho and filled our hearts with memories from the War Remnants Museum. Ho Chi Minh City Snapshot We were in the city on April 30,…
