5 Best Streets for Street Food in Saigon

by vietnamstreetfood @ Vietnam Street Food Guide

Vietnamese street food is so good, it’s made it’s way across the whole world.

STREET FOOD IN VIETNAM: YOUR TOP 10 DISHES

Editor’s Note — CNN Travel’s series often carries sponsorship originating from the countries and regions we profile. However, CNN retains full editorial control over all of its reports. Read the policy. (CNN) — Not only did President Barack Obama sample some of Vietnam’s finest local eats in Hanoi, but his guide was none other than “Parts Unknown” host Anthony Bourdain. “There is no better place to entertain the leader of the free world, in my opinion, than one of these classic, funky family-run noodle shops you find all over Hanoi,” says Bourdain. “Dinner and a beer costs about $6.

A Little Story… How One Maasai Tribe Is Changing the Face of Responsible Tourism

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

The sharp guffaw of a wild baboon startled me from sleep. Close as a whisper, the eerie sound ricocheted through my dreams. I awoke in full fight or flight response mode. My eyes whipped open, careening around the space; they slowly adjusted to the soft ochre light emanating from the banked campfire. From somewhere outside the dim […]

East West Brewing Co: The Craft Brewery Taking On Big Beer

Five years ago, there were only 2,000 craft breweries up and running in the US.

The Feast of the Trays in Tomar

by Sivan @ Sivan Askayo Blog

If you happen to be in Portugal during the month of July, I highly recommend not to miss the beautiful city of Tomar and the Feast of the Trays celebrations. However, there is a catch. The Feast of the Trays, or Festa dos Tabuleiros, is taking place only every four years, and the next time will be in 2019. I was lucky to experience this beautiful festival this year and learn more about the city’s traditions. The Tray Festival or the Divine Holy Spirit Festival is one of the most ancient cultural and religious events in Portugal. If you want, you can compare it to Thanksgiving, as both holidays’ origin is in the Harvest. It is a very colourful festival, thanks to the beautiful paper-flowers decorations in the streets of Tomar and the flowers tabuleiro (tray) the girls carry on their heads. The citizens of Tomar are getting ready for the big celebrations a few months in advance. They spend hundreds of hours making endless number of paper flowers to decorate their streets. The residents of each street are coming up with an idea or a theme or colour, and they work together on creating the decorations for the festival. It was great watching them uniting around […]

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 […]

Panama – It’s A Jungle Out There!

I recently made my first trip to Panama on a work trip with 12 other travel advisors from around the United States. 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.

by Daryl & Mindi Hirsch @ 2foodtrippers

Wondering what and where to eat in Budapest Hungary? We spent a month eating our way through the sprawling Hungarian capital city. Check out our Budapest Food Guide with the best Budapest restaurants, cafes and markets. Four weeks of eating our way through Budapest was overwhelming.

Blockchain Technology In Vietnam: Becoming A Global Leader?

by Hao Tran @ Vietcetera

Vietnam is still best known for its agricultural output, but it’s a nation in transition. In fact, it’s currently one of the fastest growing countries in Asia and its rapidly diversifying economy has surpassed Thailand’s and Malaysia’s. Foreign capital investment hit US $24.4 billion in 2016, and factory production is shifting from traditional export goods […]

The Rise and Buzz of Athens

by Sivan @ Sivan Askayo Blog

In the last few months I have visited Athens twice on assignments. The first time was an assignment for Virtuoso Life Magazine, in which I shot the Night and Bar scenes in the Greek Capital, and the second time was for Conde Nast UK, in which I shot some of the city’s new spots. While I’m writing these words, I am planning my third visit to Athens. This time it is a shoot for an in flight magazine. Stay tuned. Being in Athens on assignments for two of the trend setters magazines, was a sign for me that the city is ‘on the rise’, getting trendy, and soon, will be packed with tourists. For a lot of people Athens serves as a stop – over before flying to one of the Greek Islands,  but if you are already planning a trip to Greece, I highly recommend to spend a few days in Athens and explore its culture and city life. Recently, Athens is being praised as the “New Berlin” since artists and curators from Europe are moving in, attracted by what is considerably a cheaper cost of living, edgy nightlife and a vibrant and upcoming cultural scene. Even though much has been said about Greece’s […]

My Dream Assignment in St. Barts

by Sivan @ Sivan Askayo Blog

“Yes, I’ll do it” It took me less than a minute to answer the Photo Editor of Virtuoso, when she asked me if I would like to travel to St. Barts for a shoot. I was literally boarding the plane to Galapagos (on a different assignment) when I got that offer, so didn’t have too much time to contemplate. And why should I, right? Flying to the French Caribbean and shooting the food and wine scene is always a good idea. Mid March I found myself on the plane heading to St. Maarten and from there, a ferry ride to St. Barts. What was supposed to be a smooth ride, was not smooth at all. In a midst of a small storm and bad weather conditions, the 50-minutes ferry ride from St. Maarten to St. Barts was a deja-vu to one of the scenes in ‘Titanic’. Waves crashed on the ferry windows. I looked at my boyfriend who was trying to hide his fear. He had that weird expression on his face, apparently he was calculating the time it should take us to grab the life vests from the front. Rest assured, we were OK and we didn’t need the life […]

Winter Wonderland in Jackson Hole

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. […]

Shooting Lisbon’s Food Scene for Virtuoso Magazine, September Issue

by Sivan @ Sivan Askayo Blog

Those of you who follow my blog and my recent travels, know that I have a soft spot for Portugal in general, and Lisbon in particular. For the last three years I’ve been visiting Lisbon six times already and shot hotels, restaurants and street scenes for various magazines. From an outsider point of view, and as a photographer, it is great to see how the city has changed through these year. The city is buzzing with tourists, the cafe’s are packed with people, new wine boutiques, boutique hotels, trendy restaurants, chefs’ restaurants, colorful tik-tok taxies, yellow trams riding back and forth the historic route of Lisbon. Even the sardines smell better. I call it The Revival of the City.  When Virtuoso magazine has asked me to shoot ‘Lisbon Tasty Renaissance’ a food story about Lisbon, I said Yes right away. Especially since the Portuguese kitchen is one of my favorite. I was lucky to shoot some of the top chefs in Lisbon, such as Jose Avillez and Joao Rodrigues, who both won a Michelin star. I also shot the new Mercado da Riberia and some other great restaurants and bars. It was a great way to discover Lisbon through the food. […]

Shooting Priorat Wine Region for Wine Spectator Magazine, October Issue

“In Priorat, the roads twist and turn through the hills and leave the sun behind. You can see it and feel it. Priorat is a world apart”  This is how Sara Perez, the woman behind Mas Martinet, describes this rich wine region in Spain, where she and her father, Jose Luis Perez, play an important role as part of the pioneers of Priorat. In July, I was assigned by Wine Spectator Magazine to shoot the lead story of October issue about Priorat; one of the greatest wine regions in Catalan, Spain. I got a very detailed shooting list with names and addresses of the people I was about to meet and shoot. These were the pioneers of Priorat; the leading figures of the wine industry in that region. It was an intense assignment. Shooting from 7 in the morning (to capture the sunrise over the vineyard) till sometimes 9 in the evening, when the light was orange and soft. But nevertheless, it was a fun assignment, in which I have learned so much about wine and met incredible friendly people, who are proud of what they do, and obviously, proud of their wine.   “Priorat is a small wine district in […]

Hotel Life: COMO Hotels in Ubud, Bali

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 […]

My Well Traveled Year of 2015

by Sivan @ Sivan Askayo Blog

For the last few years, or actually since my blog exists, I am trying to keep up with the tradition of writing a summary of my previous year in terms of my work and travels. Looking back at my previous posts from previous years (2012, 2013, 2014) is a great opportunity for me to see my growth personally and professionally. 2015 has been quite a busy year for me. I’ve been traveling to Europe, the US and Africa. The latest has been an eye opener experience I will not easily forget. And while I was back in Tel Aviv, I was busy shooting stories in the city for various magazines in Europe. Tel Aviv seemed to be a popular destination to write about. In January I have travelled with my boyfriend to Val Gardena, in the Dolomites of South Tyrol. As a semi pro skier, he wanted to teach me how to ski. Since I have never skied before (not even when I was living in New York) and after three try outs that failed to keep me standing still on the snow, I have preferred to take pictures and document others skiing, then sliding the snow slopes myself. The end of February took me to Portugal […]

Shooting Costa Dorada for Wine Spectator Magazine, October Issue

This July I was assigned by Wine Spectator Magazine to shoot two stories for their October issue. One story is about Costa Dorada and the second is about Priorat Wine region in Catalan, Spain. Costa Dorada or ‘The Golden Coast’ is only a 40 minutes drive from Barcelona and it is a perfect destination for a Summer Family vacation. It is a rich territory with a long coastline along the Mediterranean dotted by 20 colorful villages and towns, spread out between the sea and the mountains. But not only the sunny beaches and the golden sand. Vineyards, olive groves, hazel and almonds trees can also be found. Scroll down to read more about some of the areas’ highlights and the best locations I’ve shot. (original text from article)   Where to Eat: Costa Dorada Restaurant You will remember this place for the lazy afternoon experience: eating seafood a few steps from Sitges’ San Sebastian beach while nursing a bottle of cool Cava. A near 50-year old institution run by second generation owner Montse Bigaire and her chef husband, Joan Vidal.

It took me only one day in Vietnam to realize the Vietnamese mothers are actually like the Jewish mothers; They like feeding people. It took me only one day to realize the Vietnamese are also like Israelis; Food is at the very heart of their culture. Almost every aspect of social, spiritual, and family life, revolves around food. In Vietnam, food is everywhere in sight. In every street corner, a woman pulls out plastic stalls around a a dish, or a huge pot of soup. At each train stop, vendors rush up to the passengers, offering homemade treats such as shrimp cakes, sticky rice, grilled corn, mango or pineapple covered with sweet red chilly flakes, sun dried squid, dried fish, dried fruits, little black dotted eggs or French baguette. The Vietnamese cooking is fresh, healthy and light, and more over, colorful and beautiful to behold; Yellow corn, pinkish-orange shrimps, deep orange crabs, red hot chilly peppers, vivid greens, pearl-color glassy noodles. In Ho Chi Minn I was drawn immediately to Ben Thanh Market, a popular and touristy destination, watching the women washing, peeling, cutting, cooking and serving food.

I have always considered myself a Foodie, but I've never been one to write about or photograph my food. That was until I visited Vietnam this past November. Now I know that everyone has heard of Pho, but the thing about the food within the country that blew my mind was its diversity. Outside of Vietnam, in both Europe & the States, I've only really eaten Pho, sure I've tried some dumplings and spring rolls, but in the country itself, every region has it's own special dish.

Shooting Antwerpen’s Design Scene for Conde Nast Traveller, July Issue

by Sivan @ Sivan Askayo Blog

What if I had less than 72 hours to shoot 20 locations in Antwerpen, the Fashion Capital of Belgium? It happened last October when I was visiting Flanders and got assigned to shoot a great story for Conde Nast Traveller about the design and creative scene in Antwerpen. It wasn’t about the ‘Antwerp Six’ designers, nor about the Diamond industry the city is well known for. This 10-page article is mostly about trendy hotels, new restaurants, bars, cafe’s, upcoming designers in their boutiques, all perfectly designed. In fact, it wasn’t my first time visiting Antwerpen. Some of the locations I shot, I knew from a previous visit to Antwerpen. You can read more about it here, so it helped me to navigate faster throughout the streets. This current assignment was hectic and busy. But beside the tight schedule, the challenge was the weather. Grey sky and rain didn’t really help to portray a story which would run in July… I prayed for some Sun, and when it came out, I shot outdoors as much as I could. To download the full article, please click here. To get some of the highlights addresses and top locations of this stylish city, please […]

Fifty Shades of Green, Terceira Island

by Sivan @ Sivan Askayo Blog

Have you ever wondered how many shades of green there are? I stopped counting when I reached the top of Serra do Cume in Terceira island in the Azores. Serra do Cume is a complex of mountains and the view from the top was beyond beautiful; Hundreds of squared green patches of grass, which are mainly used for feeding bulls and cows. This scenic viewpoint is considered one of the island’s most beautiful landscape, and I highly recommend to drive up the mountains and not just drive through them. I have stayed in Terceira only for 24 hours and drove through a combination of Nature and City life. If you are visiting this beautiful green island, here are few suggestions not to be missed. My day started with a climb to Mount Brasil and ended with an overview of the city of Angra de Heroismo (see below). The entire city spreads out over the gentle hill that faces the sea, and in the background is the almost circular form of Mount Brasil. Mount Brasil is a volcanic mountain which has a central crater surrounded by four hills. It forms a peninsula creating the bay of Angra. If you climb up the mountain […]
