Foody Friday: Dal Baht Power, 24-Hour Dal Baht is simply what Nepal lives on. It’s the energy of the country, it’s the fuel that fills the bellies of the mountain giants, it’s delicious, and it’s every budget travellers dream. Dal Baht for a large number of Nepalese is simply the staple dish of the country. Dal Baht for breakfast, Dal Baht for dinner, maybe even throw one in for lunch if necessary…. Read More

Trekking in Nepal – Langtang Trail The snow-capped face of Langtang Lirung stares down at each weary trekker that passes by her cascading rock surface, which presides in the closest trekking region to Kathmandu, Langtang. Here you can enjoy the unfrequented passes that give but a glimpse into Tibet and partake on a pilgrimage travelled by Hindu and Buddhist devotees during a full-moon to the high altitude lakes; enjoy the heartfelt and… Read More

Tamang Heritage Trail – Langtang National Park The Tamang Heritage Trail in Langtang National Park slightly differs from both Langtang and Annapurna in that the sheer size and immensity of the surrounding mountains is not the chief attraction. Rather, as the name suggests, the heritage trail takes you through a series of small traditional villages. Classic stone built houses, subsistence agriculture, hot springs, and only a few guesthouses and homestays in each… Read More

The airport is a funny place to find yourself, especially if you’re travelling internationally. For many it is simply a stopover point on route to their final destination. For some it’s the start of something, or the end of something. Some people arrive exhausted, others unable to sleep; it’s one of the only places you could enjoy a cocktail at 7am in the morning and a hearty meal, while others dine on… Read More

Siem and Reap – What To Do Besides Angkor Wat Although it was tough to say goodbye we knew we eventually had to leave Otres Beach and make our way through the rest of the beautiful country of Cambodia. Specifically, heading straight to Phnom Penh to spend a night and check out some memorials around the city. Then quickly catching the next morning bus to Siem Reap to check out Pub Street… Read More

One Day in Angkor Wat Cost Being the biggest religious monument in the world means that any description of Angkor Wat simply won’t do it justice. Built by the Khmer king in the 12th century the ancient ruins is impressive but slowly decaying as materials crumble, trees begin to take over, and the constant mass of people walking through its doorways and along pathways daily. You essentially have the option of a… Read More

Spending 2 months on a motorcycle and a scooter can be pretty enduring. You become very used to constant movement, spending only a few days in any one place and always keeping your eye on the map to pick your next destination. In Bali, there were so many options that kept us moving. In Vietnam, we simply underestimated the 2100km it took North to South and therefore had to be sure we… Read More

Vietnam by Motorcycle – There and Gone to Saigon Well, after 10 major stops, open roads and congested traffic, a new exhaust, clutch, front & rear brakes, tons of new friends, and 2158km through torrential downpour, scenic mountain ranges, beautiful rice fields, and beautiful beaches we made the trek by motorcycle from Hanoi to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). We’ve had bumps, bruises, wrong turns, bad roads and worse directions. But after… Read More

It was honestly tough to leave Dalat after spending a busy few days and recognizing that our 30 day visa was coming to an end. Our next destination would be Mui Ne, a coastal strip of beach that’s essentially a quick stop resort town. We said goodbye to the staff at Ken’s Backpackers and they sent us off with water and bakery goods for the road ahead – I’ve literally never stayed… Read More

Although the strong Russian influx can make for a good time in Nha Trang we’d stayed longer than anticipated and it was time again to hit the road. Cloudy skies and rainy afternoons had made up the last few days so waking up to a bright sun and blue sky I knew it was a perfect day to be on a road we’d heard amazing things about. We drove a quick Banh… Read More
