Saying Goodbye To India

by EvanOnTheRoad @ Evan on the Road

This was written in March, 2015, just as I was about to leave India for Nepal.   This is my last full day in India, the land of carefully shaped mustaches. As always, time flies. I can’t believe I’m moving on. I’ve spent the last few days in Darjeeling, walking up and down its steep hills, [...]

How to Spend an Overnight Layover in Denver, Colorado

by Sharon @ Me Want Travel

In September I traveled around the US for about 2 weeks. I initially purchased a flight to visit my friend in Austin, Texas but found that the flight included a one night layover in Denver. In the end I thought it would actually be kind of cool to spend a night in a new state (I had never visited Colorado before). I had no idea what to expect as the only thing I knew about Colorado was that it was one of the first states to legalize recreational marijuana… I got into Denver quite late, unfortunately, arriving to the AirBnB around 5-6 PM. My flight was also early the next day, so I only had maybe 4-5 hours to explore the city. The host was nice enough to give me a ride to downtown Denver. How to Spend an Overnight Layover in Denver, Colorado 16th Street Mall My host dropped me off at the 16th Street Mall, which is actually a one-mile long street of restaurants and stores. They have a free shuttle that you can take up and down the street. Here’s a picture I took of a drunk girl riding it… Poke at Menya Noodle Bar I decided […]

Silent & Spectacular Kyrgyzstan: 5 top adventure picks

Private Island Paradise in Belize

Private Island Paradise in Belize

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine myself on a private island paradise in Belize. The Central American country had been on my travel list for years since I’m a certified scuba diver – did you know that the second largest barrier reef in the world (after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia) is just off the coast of Belize? My company (I’m a travel advisor!) was lucky enough to receive an invite for 3 nights on Royal Belize Private Island…I’m still in disbelief that I got to go! Royal Belize is a private island buyout which means that only one party can use it at a time, whether it’s one couple (hello unbelizeable honeymoon!) or a multi-generational family or group of friends. The island can easily accommodate 10 adults and varies when kids are thrown into the mix. There are various ways to get to the island depending […]

It such a fun way to travel because I get to meet new interesting people who also have a passion for travel, and because I can learn from other travel advisors in the industry that may have more experience in a certain destination or have a different way of approaching a trip. My absolute favorite day exploring Panama was our jungle boat adventure (we also hiked, did a Panama Canal Transit, enjoyed the beach and explored Panama City’s Old City – Casco Antiguo). Our jungle day was my favorite day in country because jungle’s excite me – the landscape is gorgeous, I always find it interesting that you are surrounded by wildlife – much of which you probably can’t see at any given moment.

Pink Sands Club: The Height of Luxury

The Pinks Sands Club on Canouan Island was such a surprise to me! This was my second work trip (my first was to Uruguay, Chile and Chilean Patagonia) and it still hasn’t quite sunk in yet that I get to travel to some pretty fantastic places, The Pink Sands Club included. Snuggled on a private beach on an island in St. Vincent and The Grenadines in the Caribbean, the hotel is white with splashes of bright pink and blue – a favorite combo of mine. Each room is slightly different but all in the same style. Each room in the hotel has a large terrace overlooking the ocean – my sister came with me on this trip and we liked to sleep with the door open to the terrace so we could hear the ocean as we went to sleep.

Doors: The Balkans – Part 2

Doors and their ways. What do you think before opening a door and crossing through a doorway? Nothing? Watching your head? Wondering what’s on the other side? Something superstitious?

Khao San Sunrises: Bummin’ it in Bangkok

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

I had some expectations for Bangkok when I arrived at 4 AM on yet another “perfectly” scheduled night bus drop off. Tales of the epic street parties, unbelievable street food, and strangely, flocks of lady boys, swirling around my head. As expected, the city turned my sleep cycle upside down. We regularly went to bed after 6 am and slept deep into the afternoon, despite the laundry women’s best attempts to chat and work right outside of our room starting at 7 AM each morning. We stayed at Greenhouse, a hotel/bar one block from Khao San Road, the main tourist party street in

In addition, if I hadn’t physically been in the countries of Southeast Asia, I highly doubt most of the countries would be red on this map either. The countries that by far had the most travelers in Southeast Asia were England and Germany. I would be so bold to say that 30% of all

How Travel Advisors Benefit The Traveler

How Travel Advisors Benefit The Traveler

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

One of the biggest lesson I’ve learned about my job is that people have a common misconception about travel advisors and are unaware of the benefit to working with one to plan their travels. In this day and age, there is a wealth of information on the internet at our fingertips so a lot of people plan their own travels. Which begs the question: “Why pay someone to plan a trip when you can do it on your own?” Believe me, I was asking the same question less than two years ago so when I was looking for a job, the title of “Luxury Travel Advisor” didn’t appeal to me until I started doing my research. Not only did I find that it is an extremely fun and fulfilling career to have, but I also learned that Luxury Travel Advisors benefit the traveler in a number of unknown ways. First-hand […]

Do New Point-of-Sale Technologies Make Workers Hate Me?

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

For the past several years, the use of new point-of-sales (POS) technologies, like Square, that use a touchscreen have become popular among businesses. These systems are sleek, easy to use, and have decreased the length of in-store credit card transactions. For me, they have also done one more thing – raise my self-consciousness about not tipping. One reason shop owners love these systems, I assume, is that they increase tips. After the cashier swipes your card, they flip the screen around to face you and you see a screen that looks like this: Before these systems, a customer would have

Eating in the Food Capital of Malaysia – George Town, Penang

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

Leaving Southern Thailand behind, the journey to Malaysia involved an overnight ferry, four different mini-vans, and the most unorganized customs/border service I experienced in Southeast Asia. And that’s saying a lot considering the tourist swindling operations at the Laos border. In the customs office, the border officials requested our immunizations card, something the United States does not provide. After denying their request, we let them take our temperatures and they asked us if we had the Zika virus – of course we all replied that we did not. After sitting in the office for 45 minutes while they copied our information by hand

Go Overseas: How to choose your travel insurance

by Colin @ Elsewhere Man

I’m gonna be honest, I have never once used travel insurance. I like to live my life with the confidence that any debilitating issue that crops up because of my poor lifestyle will be medically fixable by the time I’m 50. But this is because I live on a freelance writer’s budget. I’m a cheap bastard. […]

Tips on Sleeping in the Airport During an Overnight Layover

by Sharon @ Me Want Travel

Headed to Hong Kong, I noticed last minute that I purchased a flight containing an overnight layover in Beijing. I didn’t really want to venture outside of the airport to explore the city, and I heard it wasn’t abnormal to sleep over in the airport. So I decided to try spending a night in the airport for my first time ever! Tips on Sleeping in the Airport During an Overnight Layover My Story: I arrived at the Beijing airport on maybe 4-5 hours of sleep. I had only slept about 3-4 hours prior to my flight (I have sleep issues), and I only slept a max of 1 hour on the flight. So I was obviously exhausted. It took about 1 hour to pass through security for transfers (Beijing airport lines tend to be long). It was pretty tiring standing in line as I was feeling nauseous from the lack of sleep. I had to find a place to rest! I learned there were sleeping pods in the airport so I took a look. They had one, and it wasn’t taken. So I tried to sleep in this: I ended up being unable to because I kept worrying about how […]

Exploring Kuala Lumpur: Petaling to Petronas

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

Pulling into the city that would end up being the final stop on my backpacking campaign, it was difficult to see how large and lively Kuala Lumpur was under the cover of darkness. After taking a long bus ride into the area, the modern light-rail system took us the final distance to the Petaling Hotel near Petaling Street. Only a few hundred feet from the entrance to the Petaling Street market, I could see the crowded areas packed with street food and cheap merchandise from in front of the hotel.

My New Favorite Island: Harbour Island

My New Favorite Island: Harbour Island

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

I discovered my new favorite destination this past April when I went on a long weekend away with my mom and sister: Harbour Island. This tiny little island only takes about 5 minutes to walk the width of at its center but there is surprisingly a lot of activity on this hidden gem. Plus the beaches aren’t hard on the eyes either…Harbour Island is dotted with colorful buildings covered in tropical blooms. We spent hours driving around our rental golf cart trying to decide which house we would live in if we moved here in our dreams.The crystal blue water is a sight to see in and of itself. If you look close enough, you can tell that the sand on the beach is pink! The pink of the sand doesn’t appear as vivid in photos but in person, especially at sunset, it’s a fun touch added to the island.  […]

Why Backpacking in Cuba is Different than Anywhere Else

Hotel Life: COMO Hotels in Ubud, Bali

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

Ubud, Bali is such a magical place. And as such, it’s a must on any Bali itinerary. I visited Ubud the very first time I was in Bali in July 2016 as one of my last Southeast Asian destinations before returning home from my year as an expat in Vietnam. When I had the opportunity to go back to explore Bali on a work trip, I jumped at the chance and was thrilled I’d be returning. Since it is a such a popular Balinese destination for travelers, it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of hotels to choose from. I have my favorites after my visit – of course every client is different, so one person may love hotel A, while another client loves hotel B. While I can count a handful of Ubud hotels I love for clients, two of my favorite hotels are the COMO […]

Best Carry-On Suitcases that Meet RyanAir Requirements

by Sharon @ Me Want Travel

Many people have caught onto the minimalist travel movement. Meaning, more and more people travel with nothing more than a small cabin carry-on. To some, this may seem crazy, but to others it is perfect to pack only the essentials and save money by not checking in baggage!

As some of you may know, I moved to Atlanta last October without a job, and only a faint idea of what I wanted to do for my career: social media/marketing or something in the travel industry. I didn’t have a very clear idea of where my life was about to take me. Thankfully, after two months applying to every job I could find, I began researching what travel advisors do in today’s day and age. This is the vision I had in my head: travel advisors sitting in their respective cubicles staring at their computers all day, every day. The career didn’t appeal to me but I had hit a dead-end in my job search. I interviewed with two agencies and […]

Expat Exposed: Raksha In Sydney, Australia

Expat Exposed: Raksha In Sydney, Australia

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

Meet Raksha, an Indian girl who loves traveling! She mostly travels solo and loves to meet new people and explore new cultures. Traveling is her first love and photography is her second. She mostly photographs landscapes and skyscapes. What inspired you to become an expat? Traveling was the main reason. I wanted to explore the World and I wanted to experience staying away from home. Why did you choose Sydney? I had three options based on my job opportunities – Denmark, Canada and Australia. This was the first time I was moving away from family and I knew it was hard for my mother to accept this change. Because of which I decided on a place that was closest to home (India), which was Australia. Did you go alone or did you have a friend/significant other with you? Yes, alone. I had a job before I arrived in Australia, so […]

Laying Low in Koh Tao

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

To be blunt, our trip to Koh Tao was nothing like the scuba-filled tropical adventure we had been building up to for months. Rather than getting cheap scuba training in one of the diving capitals of the world, Stu and I sat in our hotel room and watched Netflix for two days – he with a brutal cold and I with the stomach acid of an overweight, chain-smoking, grapefruit juice chugger paired with the remnants of my bronchitis. Neither of us were physically fit to dive nor did we have the mental drive. To top it off, we realized our visas expired in a couple days

Top Places to Visit in Mexico City

by Heesun @ Me Want Travel

Mexico City is a beautiful place and is having a bit of a moment with all the travel blogger hype. If you’re a fan of architecture and/or design, you will love Mexico City with its brightly colored homes, courtyards, and greenery. If you don’t, you can directly complain to me or blame it on me. Oh yea, you can also check out the pyramids at Teotihuacan, which were created around 100 BC, nbd. And the food…I pretty much lived on a diet of tacos and determined that it was the lifestyle I was meant to live. Also, please buckle in and prepare for a crap ton of solo shots because Mexico City is so damn photogenic. Top Places to Visit in Mexico City 1. La Casa Azul – aka Frida Kahlo’s home. The use of color and print in her home is awesome and so is learning how deeply this woman influenced art and fashion. She even became a symbol of the feminist movement. It was crazy to learn more about her personal life, like how she suffered from polio, then survived a horrible bus accident, married fellow artist Diego Rivera who was 20 years her senior, Diego slept with her […]

How to Choose the Best Backpacking Backpack in 2018

by Sharon @ Me Want Travel

Although suitcases have taken over the traveling world for many years, backpacks are increasing in popularity with the rise in world travelers and backpacker culture. It could be argued that backpacks are even more convenient than carrying a suitcase. Perhaps it is the fact that backpacks allow more freedom and ease of travel when getting through airports, going up or down stairs, or crossing busy streets with rocky pavement. Purchasing a new travel backpack should be seen as an investment, as you should be choosing a quality pack that will do its job without too much wear and tear. That doesn’t mean that you need to blow your savings (that could be used for travel) when there are plenty of affordable backpacks out there! Many backpacks are also carry-on friendly to cut down on extra travel costs. But with so many options you may be wondering what some of the main features to look for are. So, to help you out, we have made a list with a few tips and backpack suggestions before you go out and make your purchase! Without further ado, here is our guide on how to choose the best backpacking backpack in 2018. 1. Front […]

ATM Fees In Vietnam (Plus Bonus Money Management Tips)

It’s pretty steep, especially when you consider that local meals often cost a mere $2 – $3. Meaning that accessing your money is more expensive than eating. Luckily, Vietnamese banks are […]

Chilean Patagonia Destination Highlight

Chilean Patagonia Destination Highlight

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

Patagonia. It’s a major bucket list item for some but to be honest, it really never crossed my mind to add Patagonia to my list of destinations I really wanted to travel. When my company received an invite to go to Chilean Patagonia (Patagonia also extends into Argentina!) in the spring, I accepted the invitation hesitantly really only because I was already going to be in Santiago, where the trip began, two days before the start of the Patagonia trip. Time-wise, it made sense for me to go so I said “yes” to the invitation. And I’m soooo glad I did. Patagonia is unique because the landscapes are so varied. During my time in Chilean Patagonia, I saw countryside extending as far as the eye could so, enormous mountains, crystal blue glaciers, waterfalls, etc. There was a new delight around every corner. Patagonia is an adventurer’s paradise – I loved […]

7 Reasons Iceland Should Be Your Next Travel Destination

by Heesun @ Me Want Travel

Iceland is a gorgeous country and has been receiving its fair share of hype due to social media. I went in March 2016 and it was 100% worth it, even though it was cold AF (I’m not going to lie to you). Here are 7 reasons why Iceland should be your next travel destination. 7 Reasons Why Iceland Should Be Your Next Travel Destination 1. Waterfalls – Waterfalls are EVERYWHERE in Iceland. It was pretty standard to see at least one an hour when we were driving. Here are just two examples, the first is Seljalandsfoss and the second is Haifoss (the ending -foss denotes that it is a waterfall). 2. Icelandic horses – As you drive around the Ring Road or throughout Iceland’s beautiful scenery, you will most likely chance upon some Icelandic horses. They’re extremely adorable and remind me of ponies. Sometimes, they’re so still that you feel like you’re looking at a photograph, with only their tails blowing in the wind to hint at their realness. 3. Double rainbows on the regular – With its random rains, seeing double rainbows in Iceland is a pretty regular magical occurrence. And being in Iceland, you have the added benefit of a dope […]

As Athens is likely to be the first stop for any visitor to Greece, the Temple of Olympian Zeus is the best place to start your temple hopping. You can see more on what to do in Athens here.

Visiting Stanley and Repulse Bay in Hong Kong

by Sharon @ Me Want Travel

I had been staying in Chiang Mai, Thailand for a month or so and plan on staying there until around March. During this time, I decided to surprise my parents back in Hong Kong (they live there half the year)! I flew over on the 7th without them knowing, and when they opened the door to greet me my dad was in shock and my mom cried. My eyes welled up a little too, haha. It was wonderful hanging out with my parents. I headed back to Chiang Mai on January 16th, but while I was in Hong Kong I was trying to bond with family and get out of the house each day. The other day we visited Stanley and Repulse Bay. The last time I went was with a friend, so it had been a while since going with family. Transportation To get to Stanley and Repulse Bay, we suggest taking a bus rather than a taxi to save money, as the bus is convenient and takes you directly there. Taking a taxi can cost at least 100 HKD, while buses may price under 10 HKD. I like sitting on these double deckers cause you can get a […]

A Little Hospitality… A Guest is a Gift from God

by Shannon @ A Little Adrift: Wanderings & Traveling the World

A throaty tenor danced across the inky night, joined moments later by a chorus of lighter voices. The empty footpath widened as I approached the Kartlis Deda statue. The disembodied voices echoed across the cool night. Lit in soft green, Mother Georgia towered above me. The nearby voices lifted in perfect harmony, swelling as the ethereal melody penetrated […]

My friends from Taiwan visited for a few days, so we decided to take a Chang Mai, Thailand cooking class.

Chiang Mai, Thailand Cooking Class (Mama Noi Cookery School) We booked the half day evening course from 4:30 PM to 8:30 PM for 800 baht (about $24.58 USD). This included the creation of a soup, a stir fried meal, curry dish, and a thai tea. Market + Exploration We started the day getting picked up at our studio apartment heading to the market. Our host showed us some of the ingredients we were going to be using. It was pretty cool checking out the Thailand local foods. The Thai lemon basil was our favorite! I thought we would get to pick out our ingredients for our meals at the market, but this was not included in the evening class. We then headed to the actual cooking school: And we played with puppies for the first 15 minutes hahaha they were soooo cute: The […]

Best Supplements For Travel (Pack These Before You Leave)

Biergarten (Hayes Valley, SF) – Perfect for sunny summer days (be sure to still bring a jacket though, for no other reason than this is SF) and with a group of friends, Biergarten always delivers. There are always a few tasty beers on tap, as well as wine and non-alcoholic options. They also feature a smattering of small plates so you can nosh as you drink those steins. Prost! 424 Octavia St, San Francisco, CA 94102 2. Mission Bar (Mission, SF) – If you’re a fan of dive bars, this place is the bee’s knees. They offer cheap beer, have a pool table, booths that you can lose yourself in conversation in, and are cash only. I […]

Malay Cuisine: Food in Penang and Kuala Lumpur

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

I know for a fact that I had never tasted nor wondered what Malay food was like until I showed up in Malaysia. After a few weeks and dozens of meals in the country, I’m still not 100% sure what Malay food really is. Why? The food in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, and throughout the country, as well as the population, is a mix of Malay, Chinese, and Indian. Between the Chinese noodle soups and Indian curry dishes, both of which are local styles, it’s pretty difficult to distinguish what is solely Malay. Even though I couldn’t pick it out of

Winter Wonderland in Jackson Hole

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

You may remember from last fall that I spend time with family in Jackson Hole, Wyoming a few times a year. We always go for Christmas and so do my extended family. It’s such a fun week! Before Atlanta warms up too much {let’s be honest, warm up now please!}, I wanted to take the time to share photos from the week. Plus I saw that Wyoming got more snow over the last few days! Here’s photos from the winter wonderland in Jackson Hole over Christmas: Some of my family skis and some of my family snowboards but we always head down the hill together! We had multiple feet of snow within 24 hours so the fresh powder on the mountain was amazing. On a day off from skiing and snowboarding, my mom, sister and I walked around town. We popped into Persephone Bakery for hot chocolate and peppermint lattes. […]
