One Day in Paris

One day in Paris – a dream I’ve had for years. A sign of ‘making it’ – being able to whisk your significant other off to the city d’amour for a meal and a bit of shopping. I remember chatting with my buddy while at Runix on Dundas St, Toronto back in ’97 – we were talking…

Paris Itineraries

If I had ONE DAY in Paris: 8am: I’d start with an early breakfast from a Parisian cafe (a warm pain au chocolat please!). If you see an Eric Kayser bakery – do it! 9am: Walk or take the metro to Place de La Concorde and visit the Musee de L’Orangerie to see Monet’s waterlilies. 11am: Pop into Gagliani bookstore…

Hey Sexy Lady – Ondol is Korean Style

When we were deciding our route for this trip, we hadn’t initially planned for a stop in Korea. We were actually hoping to make our way over to Japan after China, but, short on allowable miles for our ‘Around-the-World’ ticket and short on time, we took a look at the map and both agreed on…

SOLO because FOMO

During our travels, there have been mornings when I’ve ventured out as a #SoloExplorer…generally because @funkstop wants more time to snooze under the covers! Usually this means wandering through the streets with my camera, sitting at a cafe and people watching, or window shopping at local shops (I can spend hours doing this!). In Beijing,…

Dealing with the Paparazzi in Beijing

When Rahim and I landed in China, we had no idea that we were going to become instant celebrities. Everywhere we went, people stopped to ask if they could take pictures with us. It was as if we had entered Bizarro World. Some people told us that it was the novelty of a new ethnicity,…

And the award for our new favourite airline goes to…

Air Nippon Airways! Hands down! Our entire around-the-world trip has been organized through ANA’s mileage rewards program.  We’ve had 8 stops, 2 open-jaws, and 5 24-hour stopovers, all with countless adjustments due to our on-the-go planning. For a trip like ours, (well for any trip really), the airline could make or break the overall enjoyment…

How to Ride Into a Sunset

I’m not exactly sure how it happened. One minute it was 4:00pm and I had turned back to my Lonely Planet to read another chapter on exploring Myanmar and the next minute Rahim was rushing through the door exclaiming that it was 5:00pm! Oh no! We had planned to leave our hotel by 4:30pm so…

Tour Review: Maya Bay Sleep Aboard Tour

It’s 6pm and we’re not on a beach we are on the Beach! That’s right the infamous beach from That Movie! So what’s the big deal right? Well the beach is not actually open to tourists after 5pm. How did we do it? With Maya Bay Tours! They have a package tour called the Maya Bay Sleep Aboard Tour which starts out on…

Vietnam – A Foodie’s Wonderland

This post dedicated to all the foodies out there! If you haven’t already, you need to make a trip to Vietnam! We really didn’t know what to expect in terms of food when going to Vietnam. Our exposure to Vietnamese food previously was limited to Phở and some of the sweets at local shops in Little…
