When planning a weekend trip to Seoul, we struggled with how to spend our time. All we had on the books was a food tour around Seoul. There are plenty of attractions around the city to keep any visitor busy for much longer than a weekend, but we couldn’t narrow it down. There is one […]

A few months ago, Netflix released a food show called Street Food, produced by the same people behind the popular Chef’s Table series. The show focuses on street food from around the world and the people behind it. Much like Chef’s Table, Street Food has plenty of gorgeous food shots and an abundance of slow […]

Wow. Just, wow. In a blink of an eye, we’ve past our two-year China-versary. That’s a milestone on so many fronts, and it reminds me once again that ‘the days are long but the years are short.’ There is nothing quite as long as a difficult day in China when life is nothing but complicated […]

Sri Lanka is one of those places where you’ll hear you need a lot of time to explore. When researching our vacation there, we frequently saw articles like, ‘One Month in Sri Lanka Wasn’t Enough!’ or ‘The Ultimate Three Week Sri Lanka Roadtrip.’ Well, that’s lovely, but we only have one week thankyouverymuch. How do you […]

Our entire recent trip to Sri Lanka was inspired by a single farfetched idea – to see a leopard in the wild in Yala National Park. I don’t know why we have this image in our minds that the only real safaris in the world are in Africa. Majestic, rare animals live all over the […]

We thought about cancelling. On Easter Sunday 2019, a group of religious extremists carried out a coordinated attack in the Colombo region of Sri Lanka, killing over 250 churchgoers and tourists. We watched in horror from afar. As active tourists who frequently visit places of worship, the attack was particularly unsettling. We obsessively checked our […]

You are now the reader of a blog run by two legitimate F1 fans. Bet you didn’t see that coming, eh? For some background, we have a group of friends that are all F1 fanatics, and we congregated at local sports pubs each weekend to watch the races when we lived in Shenzhen. Prior to […]

If there is one rule we’ve heard a million times about travel in China, it is to avoid going to Chinese tourist sites on holidays. We’ve all seen the horror show photos of choking crowds spending their much needed vacation with a million or so fellow travelers. We love to giggle at the crazies who […]
