Ah, summer break. Who doesn’t love kicking back on the beach, sipping at a fruity drink and just enjoying the sounds of life flowing around you?
What is your travel advice for first-time travelers? The answer to that question really depends on the type of travel you’re doing. Solo travel, couples travel, long travel, and travel with a purpose all come with their own sets of rules. Here’s a list of things that I’ve learned over the past decade that have helped a lot in our travels around the world.
My favorite moments of 2010 from Taiwan to an epic summer road trip in Canada, and on to Shanghai, China and Georgia.
A reverse effect with life imitating art. Or is it? This photo looks like an old oil painting to me. I love the contrast between the tiny little Vietnamese fisherman’s boat floating in a wake of capitalism.
One special area just outside of Ho Chi Minh City played an extraordinary part in Vietnamese history just over 35 years ago. John and I are both interested in the history of the Vietnam War, so a visit to Cu Chi Tunnel system, Ben Duoc Tunnel has been on both our bucket lists for some time now. Located 70km North-West of Ho Chi Minh City, this unique architectural structure forms a system of underground tunnels spanning over 200km in length.
Phang Nga Bay, Thailand. Tourists will recognize this as James Bond Island, but locals know it as Ko Ping Kan. You guessed it. This is the island where Roger Moore and Christopher Lee filmed “The Man With The Golden Gun.” For more information, please visit Travel Thailand: James Bond Island in Phang Nga Bay.
