Paragliding – Pokhara – Nepal – April 2015

There are many activities to do in Pokhara.  You can go bungee jumping, zip lining and trekking are amongst a few of the options.  We originally were going to look into parahawking which is paragliding but with birds of prey that you get to feed up in the sky.  It's the only place in the … Continue reading Paragliding – Pokhara – Nepal – April 2015

Bus from Siem Reap to Battambang – Cambodia – February 2015

Typically a bus is a bus.  Easy peasy. Most hotels will book a bus for you no problem.  Ours wasn't one of those hotels so we had to head into town and find a bus.  From Siem Reap to Battambang they tend to range from $4-$8.  We went directly to one of the companies, Capitol … Continue reading Bus from Siem Reap to Battambang – Cambodia – February 2015

Exploring the Dark Cave – Phong Nha – Vietnam – 2014

We arrived at our hotel in Dong Hoi very early in the morning... like 6am early which to me is a horrible time to arrive at a hotel.  Any time you deal with early check in, you risk having to pay more money.  Money that I don't want to pay but will if it means … Continue reading Exploring the Dark Cave – Phong Nha – Vietnam – 2014

My First Ever Sleeper Bus – Vietnam – November 2014

I don't sleep well on busses.  We have taken night busses before but we haven't taken a sleeper bus (well Kristi has but she's seen and done more than me).   Our bus is leaving Sapa at 10pm and supposed to arrive in Hanoi at 5am.  Not a great time to arrive but it seems the … Continue reading My First Ever Sleeper Bus – Vietnam – November 2014

Sapa & Bac Ha Sunday Market – Vietnam – November 2014

Sapa came highly recommended by nearly everyone we spoke with.  I don't think they have ever been there in the winter time.  However, before I get into our experience, lets back track to getting to Sapa.  After doing some research online, we learned that the train is very expensive.  We found that the local bus … Continue reading Sapa & Bac Ha Sunday Market – Vietnam – November 2014

First Impression of Vietnam

VISA on Arrival for Canadians Because we are on the road and we didn't feel like going to immigration ahead of time, we looked online to apply for a Visa for Vietnam.  Lucky for us, it's super easy to do so as a Canadian.  We simply went to the Vietnam Government website, filled out a … Continue reading First Impression of Vietnam
