Her Take: Singapore Wrap-up and General Impressions

Her Take: Singapore Wrap-up and General Impressions

Average spent per day: $45.59 Total Days in Singapore: 4  Location The country wrap-up for Singapore is slightly different, considering the city-state is extremely small (hence the lack of a route on the map above). We headed here after our time in Malaysia, and despite going in thinking our expenses per day were going to triple, we were surprise at ... Read More »

Her Take: Zip-Lining and Elephant Riding in Chiang Mai

Her Take: Zip-Lining and Elephant Riding in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai will likely be your first stop when heading up to Northern Thailand from Bangkok. Kyle and I boarded the overnight bus from the capital of Thailand around 9pm, and arrived in Chiang Mai at 8am the following morning. We had heard horror stories about people’s belongings being stolen on these overnight trips, but everything went off without hassle. ... Read More »

Her Take: Laos Wrap-up and Final Impressions

Her Take: Laos Wrap-up and Final Impressions

Average spent per day: $33.61 Total days in Laos: 17 Our Route The People As much as we tried, we never did warm up to the people in Laos. Our first impression was not good, considering we felt slightly scammed being forced to take tuk-tuks after being dropped off in the middle of nowhere from the longboat, even though our ...

Her Take: How to Achieve the Best Kung-Fu Kicks on The Great Wall

Her Take: How to Achieve the Best Kung-Fu Kicks on The Great Wall

After today I can officially cross another place off my bucket list: The Great Wall. One of the seven wonders of the world, this manmade design stretches across the northern part of China for over 20,000km, and it was all completed by two million people. Apparently the wall didn’t do the Chinese all that well when it came to fending ... Read More »

His Take: Party Under the Roman Ruins by the Sea in Pula, Istria

His Take: Party Under the Roman Ruins by the Sea in Pula, Istria

Pula is a small port city in the northern tip of Croatia and works as a perfect base camp if you are looking to treck around Istria, which I would highly recommend as the region is gorgeous and considerably cheaper than popular southern destinations such as Dubrovnik. If you only have time for one day trip during your stay in ... Read More »

Her Take: Why Rovinj Beats Venice as the Most Romantic Travel Destination

Her Take: Why Rovinj Beats Venice as the Most Romantic Travel Destination

If you ask most people what the most romantic travel destination is from around the world, chances are the answer will be Venice. When on exchange in England I managed to make it over to this classic town in April, which was a great time to avoid the high season and wander the endless side streets without breaking a sweat. But ... Read More »

Her Take: Pleasant Nature Walks at Plitvice Lakes National Park

Her Take: Pleasant Nature Walks at Plitvice Lakes National Park

Plitvice Lakes National Park is rated as one of the top 10 places to see before you die by Cool Hunting, so naturally Kyle and I figured it would be a good idea to trek out and see this natural wonder. My opinion is not as strong as Kyle’s on this matter, but I wouldn’t say this day trip was ... Read More »

His Take: Plitvice Lakes, Out of the Way and Overrated

His Take: Plitvice Lakes, Out of the Way and Overrated

Before Jamie and I made the trek to Croatia, we had heard from scores of various people about this place called Plitvice Lakes. Apparently, it was otherworldy. “Like, straight out of Avatar,” one guy told us. I had even seen Plitvice on a list of “Top 10 Places to Visit Before You Die.” There must be far too many people ...

Her Take: Enter the Wardrobe at Callooh Callay

Her Take: Enter the Wardrobe at Callooh Callay

When Kyle lived in London for a summer, he talked endlessly about this one spot in Shoreditch as if it was an architectural panty remover. He was convinced that if you took a girl here on a first date she would be so impressed it would be distasteful not to return the favor. Source: Shopped and Dropped Source: Katherine Portilla ...
