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…

Review: Feel Free Dry Bag

  We bought a 20L dry bag when we arrived in Krabi, and it was a life saver! It only cost us 700 Baht (approx 20 USD) and it fits both of our laptops with plenty of room to spare. It has a handy strap as well making it easy to transport around. I wish…

When I say Tunisia, you say….? I can honestly say that before we planned this trip to Tunis, I knew nothing about the country and just figured that it would be something like Marrakesh…Our main reason for originally planning to travel to Tunisia was to see the remains of the Star Wars film set. Rahim…

A week in the life of Tunisia

The title is a bit misleading — a week is hardly enough for Tunis let alone the whole country.  We spent the entire time in the Tunis area because Rayma became sick from something she ate (I still provided great bedside care!). However, until she is back and up and able to write the more ‘insightful, thoughtful, and…

Tunisian Staring Contest

Basically this is some sort of game that I came across in one of the squares in Tunisia. These two were sitting and just staring at each other. They were blinking but not moving at all. Apparently the ‘game’ can last for hours… The building behind them is a mosque and so they even keep…
