Hanoi, Vietnam
December 132015

This was my first time in Vietnam, and I was determined to see more than the consultant trifecta: the airport, the office, and some Western chain hotel. I didn’t get that much sleep, but I saw a lot in three days. Read more…

Ubud, Bali
June 302015

I’ve always been intrigued by Bali, though I’m not sure why. It’s fairly easy to get to from Australia – a five hour flight, and only a two hour time difference. Rather than try to rush around and see the whole island, we spent all four nights in Ubud. Read more…

Siem Reap, Cambodia
December 302014

Angkor Wat has been on our list for a while. We’d planned it a few times when we lived in the US. Even bought a guidebook at one point. We sold the guidebook as part of the purge before moving to Australia, so of course we finally went there a year later. Read more…

Bagan, Myanmar
December 282014

When we told people that we were going to Myanmar, the reactions were pretty classic. Most people didn’t know where it was and then said, “Oh, you mean Burma.” Most people asked “Why??” BAY-gan. BUH-gone. Burma. Whatever you call it, we loved it. Read more…

Munich
October 152012

Andy had a work trip to Munich, which happened to coincide with Oktoberfest, so I tagged along for a long weekend. Oktoberfest is something you have to do once. It’s kind of like the Houston Rodeo, but stickier, and with more singing (slurring) and dancing (swaying). Read more…

Cinque Terre
May 302007

In May 2007 we visited the Cinque Terre region of Italy. We stayed in Manarola, one of the more remote villages ( I say this because it was pretty deserted at night, and when I asked about internet access we were directed to the next town which was a 20 minute walk). (photos coming soon)
