‘A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY’: THE TWILIGHT ZONE EPISODE THAT EXPLORES OUR NEED TO TRAVEL

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

“a place around the bend where he could jump off”

Created during a time (1959-1964) when American television seemed eerily clean and domestic, The Twilight Zone challenged viewers to examine a possibility of uncertainty beyond the comforts and assumptions of contemporary life. It was my favorite thing on TV. One episode in particular always stuck with me- A Stop at Willoughby. It brings up questions. How could such a ‘successful’ man working in a New York tower and living in an upscale suburb be so miserable? Why would he dream of escaping to a sleepy village where the streets have no name and the children wear overalls and go fishing?

A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY is the story of an advertising executive named Gart. Gart feels endless pressure from his pugnacious boss and his minion-like coworkers at his New York City office during ... Read More »

Vietnam: The Ultimate 1 Month Itinerary

Vietnam: The Ultimate 1 Month Itinerary


halfthisworldaway

Vietnam is a beautiful contrast of a country, and one i fell in love with instantaneously. Despite the fact it has been almost 3 years since I last visited, Vietnam is one of those special places that stays with you long after you leave. Even now I find myself day dreaming about the sleepy little town of Hoi An and the pulsating city of Ho Chi Minh. Vietnam is a country with an itinerary for everyone. It has diverse landscapes, exotic food, challenging history and fascinating traditions make it an absolute dream to discover. From the mountaineous region of Sapa in the north, to the tranquil beaches further south it is sure to offer something for everyone. It is also home to the world's largest cave and of course, the world heritage site of Ha Long Bay. With such a harrowing history there is so much to learn about Vietnam, however this once war raveged country is now a rapidly developing nation which seamlessly entwines the traditional with the modern. In addition to it’s landscapes and history, Vietnam is also a culinary experience like no other. The food is simply delicious, Pho is to die for and the claypot dishes from the South are immense. I think I ate about 1000 summer rolls and never once got bored. And let’s not even start talking about the seafood sold on the beaches… Although I would recommend spending as long as possible in this country, a 1 month trip of Vietnam is a good amount of time to travel the country and to slowly start scratching beneath its surface.

LIVE LIKE A LOCAL: RENT A SHORT-TERM APARTMENT WHILE TRAVELING

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

If you want to experience the true life of a place, experience it like a local: get an apartment in a true neighborhood. Wake up to the sounds of street vendors and garbage trucks. Be recognized with a smile by your local noodle-slinger.

If a city strikes your fancy, rent an apartment for a month and stick around for awhile.

Another advantage of worldwide Internet networking is that it allows us to exchange short-term apartments without going through an agent or company. Check the New York City craigslist sublet page and you’ll find plenty of Parisians happy to exchange their Left Bank apartment for a little temporary stepping stone on the Upper West Side. Though apartment exchanges are rare in Asia, there are plenty of expats and locals alike who will be vacating their adobe and happy to have someone trustworthy in ... Read More »

5 of SAIGON’S BEST HIDDEN COCKTAIL BARS

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is a place of surprises, much of them elusive to first-time visitors with just a few days on the ground. Though a bit challenging at first, Ho Chi Minh City eventually became our favorite city in the world and a base for many of our adventures in the Southeast Asian region. It’s also a pretty great place to go out and grab a drink, whether it’s a Monday or Saturday, Saigon’s music venues, breathtaking rooftop bars, and tiny neighborhood spots are buzzing.

Unlike the more world famous, easy-to-find spots of Bangkok and Shanghai, Saigon is a city of tight neighborhoods which unveil themselves only to those intrepid enough to explore the tiniest, faintest lines on the map.
