Central Vietnam 6 days in Hoi An Hue and Phong Nha

On Tuesday February 26th at 4PM I had to say goodbye to my friends in Da Lat because I was taking the nightbus to Hoi An. Funny enough Pamela and Andr who had done the canyoning with me were taking the same bus as me and we travelled together. It

How to make LGBTQ friends traveling

As a queer, nonbinary person, I’ve often struggled with feelings of isolation while traveling, especially in countries where it’s not completely safe to be out. That’s why I’m grateful when I find some LGBTQ “family” on the road. For just a few days or even just a moment, I can let down my guard. I can stop switching around pronouns when I talk about partners or exes, and I can feel fully welcomed as I am. These moments often come unexpectedly: In Taiwan, I was at dinner with a new friend, an...

How Tamu Bakery empowers women

In 2012, I had my very own Eat, Pray, Love moment. Recovering from a rare type of cancer in my late twenties, I decided to change my life radically. All thanks to baking. During the anxious time of this medical drama, I found the simple and repetitive nature of kneading dough by hand utterly absorbing and very calming. I noticed that no matter how stressed I was, baking made me feel alive. While baking, your senses are stimulated. You touch, see, and smell, and this increases feel-good endor...

Best cafes in Da Nang

Danang is growing in stature as it positions itself as the third city of Vietnam. Located roughly half way between Hanoi and Saigon, this coastal city is becoming a popular destination for business and leisure travellers, and there is a growing digital nomad scene here as well. The cafe scene is also growing here, with world-class roasteries housed in architecturally interesting buildings. For this post I’ve grouped the cafes into two areas – Beachside and Cityside – rather than by district o...

Best pancake recipes around world

Debates rage in the US over the superiority of waffles versus pancakes. Poll the global community, though, and the answer becomes obvious: pancakes. While several countries have their own takes on waffles, traditional pancake recipes span the continents, incorporate more creative flavors, fall on both sides of the sweet-savory divide, and come in all different shapes and sizes, proving just how seriously the world takes this delicious staple. Take note IHOP: Each of these 13 delicious interna...

How to Get Around Southeast Asia on the Cheap

Posted: 2/28/2019 | February 28th, 2019 Southeast Asia may be a huge region — but it’s super easy to get around. It’s well-traveled (backpackers have been following “the banana pancake trail” since the late ’60s), and there’s an extensive network designed to ensure that you can easily get from A to B. In Hanoi and need to get to Bangkok? In Vientiane and want to go Malaysia? Or Ko Samui? No problem. Someone can arrange that. But what’s the best way to get around Southeast Asia on a budget? Ho...

Bikini Airline Will Order Boeing 737s During Trump’s Nuclear Summit

VietJet had been an exclusive Airbus customer until President Obama visited Vietnam in 2016 and so far operate 64 Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft and no Boeing jets. They have five times as many planes on order as in operation. Even without the Export-Import Bank giving Boeing's business a boost, the US government is still their chief benefactor. And in the case of VietJet you might even say the President grabbed these orders by the... Continue reading Bikini Airline Will Order Boeing 737s Durin...

KY eats – Bun Cha Dac Kim, Hanoi, Vietnam

When it comes to Vietnamese food, pho usually gets all the glory, and to be fair, before I stepped foot on Hanoi, I too did not know the existence of this arguably superior Vietnamese dish – Bun Cha. Bun Cha Dac Kim, Hanoi For those who aren’t familiar, bún chả ( is a dish consists of grilled pork with rice vermicelli,  bún stands rice vermicelli, and chả is pork. My first taste of this wonderful dish came at Bun Cha Dac Kim in Hanoi, a rather famous joint for this dish and coincidentally si...

Discovering the Value of Slow Travel – Why We Chose to Stay in Chiang Mai

When I made my first packing list for our RTW sabbatical, I included maps and guidebooks but I never thought of bringing along a paper calendar. At home, we have one in just about every room of our house, but for some reason, I thought time would be less relevant on the road. The truth is, it can be hard to keep track of months, let alone days when traveling long-term. That’s why I now keep a paper calendar in my bag everywhere I go. And according to that calendar, we are just about to start a n...

Pandan desserts from Southeast Asia

Some of the tastiest , most eye-catching desserts in Southeast Asia are bright green. While most neon desserts can typically credit their hue to artificial dyes, the verdant color is all thanks to a single natural ingredient: pandan, a plant that tastes of vanilla, tropical fruits, and flowers all wrapped in one. From silky, sweet custards to sticky rice cakes, the spiky leaves of the tropical pandan plant give desserts a distinctive grassy sweetness and a playful green hue. Also known as scr...

Topas ecolodge aims to be a model of sustainability

From conception, the goal of the Topas Ecolodge in Vietnam has been to encapsulate sustainable practices at every turn. They also carry a heavy burden of social responsibility by focusing on providing local jobs and sourcing materials from the surrounding areas whenever possible. Nestled into a mountainous region in North Vietnam, they aim to assist the five local hill-tribes that remain largely untouched by the modern world. The vast majority of the 100 employees live in surrounding villages o...

5 Free Attractions to Visit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I’ve visited Kuala Lumpur twice, and I have to say I’m disappointed at how un-backpacker friendly the city is. In May 2018, the city banned all free walking tours. Popular attractions like the KL Tower and Petronas Building (KL Twin Towers) cost more than $20 just to go up and get a view of the city. Thankfully, there are a handful of attractions in the city that are free.

LGBTQ traveler biggest challenges

Planning a trip is always hard, but as an LGBTQ person, travel brings up extra questions: Will I be safe? Where can I go to meet people like me? Can I come out? Are there gender-neutral bathrooms at this restaurant or hostel? The numerous considerations regarding safety, community, and communication can be daunting — and these are only compounded by the difficulties we might face based on other intersecting aspects of our identities, including race, ethnicity, nationality, class, and so on. ...

Vietnam

I wrote a story in my next book about all the places that I’m supposed to go to, or want to go to, or should go to. For a long time, Vietnam was near the very top of that list. We have friends that live in Vietnam, settling there after a few years of living in Japan, Laos, and Thailand. An assortment of commitments had prevented us from visiting them in Vietnam (and previously, in Laos and Thailand, two other places on my list), but when we saw them last summer in France, we sat down together i...

Pilgrims' progress: a new mountain hotel in Vietnam

Devout locals have trekked to the holy peak of Yen Tu for years but a new ‘village’ at its foot is drawing other visitors to its pagodas, pools and forestsWe’ve all done it: fetched up somewhere so idyllic on our travels that we hate the thought of going home to stress and normal life.More than 2,000 years ago, a Chinese wise man, An Ky Sinh, felt this way when he arrived at Yen Tu mountain in northern Vietnam. He had been sent by China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang (259-210BC), conqueror of si...

My Full-Time Travel Expenses: 2018 Report

This post My Full-Time Travel Expenses: 2018 Report appeared first on The Professional Hobo. Welcome to my travel expense report for 2018!

Let’s take a look at everything I spent in 2018 – business, personal, and otherwise – a year that saw me travel over 32,000 miles to six countries (with a whole lotta bouncing around within a few of those countries).

The End of the Niece Project

This is it – the end. When I started on this project I wondered if I had the ability to stick to such a long-term project and now… poof…it’s over. Growing up… I never wanted kids of my own, I’m not sure why. It just never really hit me. I waited and waited, but I never heard a clock. I’d look at babies and smile and try to understand that deep desire to have one. But after my initial smile, I was uninterested. Maybe I would have had them if I had met the right guy – but the right guy never rea...
