Not a sh*thole: Here are five reasons you should travel to Haiti

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

Sh*thole?  What sh*thole?  Here are five reasons to travel to beautiful Haiti, the world’s first black republic. Mention Haiti to most people and they’ll likely conjure up images of strife and devastation.  But while the island nation’s had its troubles, it’s so much more than the single story of suffering the media is quick to promote. Luckily, I had the opportunity discover this first hand when I finally made a visit there last summer. Historically rich, culturally vast, and tremendously beautiful, Haiti is totally worth a visit.  Don’t believe me? I’ll elaborate. Here are five reasons to make Haiti your next trip (ignorant remarks from a certain world leader notwithstanding). Five reasons you should go to Haiti 1. The history Even if you’re not a history buff, Haiti’s remarkable past will intrigue you. The nation, which shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic, was once under Spanish and French rule. But in 1804 Haiti shed the shackles of its colonial keepers when enslaved Africans successfully revolted and made the country the world’s first independent Black republic.  Ten years from now, make sure you can say that you chose your life, you didn't settle for it. -Mandy Hale (Jacmel, Haiti) […]

How I made over $100K a year teaching overseas

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

Teaching overseas can be very lucrative– I earned a six figure yearly salary teaching abroad.  Here’s how I did it, and how you can, too. If you follow my adventures on Instagram or Facebook you’ll know that I travel a lot.  On average, I travel anywhere from 3 to 5 times a month; last year I journeyed to 27 countries for both work and play. As a travel junkie who is also a full time travel journalist, blogger, and influencer, all this globetrotting is kind of par for the course– it’s not just a passion, but also a job. Just call me the reindeer whisperer… ? With around 200,000 of the cuddly creatures living in Finnish Lapland, it was only natural that I get up close and personal with them during my stay! Yesterday morning I thus made my way to Kujalan Portila, a reindeer farm located in Kuusamo.

Why I Want to Go Back to Ireland & Bring You With Me

It was love at first sight. I pretty much fell in love with Ireland the moment I saw her. She seduced me with rolling, emerald, sheep-dotted hills and plains of gray-green stone.

My travel tech: The best camera, phone, and accessories for travel | Travel Photography

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

A guide to all the tech I use for travel photography, plus what I consider the best camera for travel. As someone makes their living producing travel content, I’m very interested and invested in my travel photography.  And it would appear that many of my followers, even if they don’t work in the travel industry, feel the same way!  At least once a day I get one of the following questions the tech I use for my travel photography: Which camera do you use for travel/ What’s the best travel camera? Which phone do you use to take your pictures? Which apps do you use to edit your travel photos? I want to get serious about travel photography. What other equipment do you suggest? La Paz, the capital of Bolivia, is the highest administrative capital in the world, at 11,500 feet above sea level. But, as it turns out, the high altitude/lack of oxygen isn't the only thing that'll take your breath away. Check out this view! Many travellers don't make it to Bolivia on their South America trips, but the beautiful scenery is just one reason to add this underrated country to your list. I spent 2.5 weeks here […]

The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand enjoys a 50% return rate for foreign tourists. In contrast, Vietnam only pulls back 5% of visitors.Personally, I feel that Vietnam walks all over Thailand in almost every travel category except beaches. So, why do so many people have such bad experiences and never return to Vietnam?I hope the list I have made below helps out first-time visitors. It may seem cynical and anti-Vietnamese. It’s not. I love this country; I want you to love it, too. I’d just like to alert travelers to beware of the common first-time mistakes that may sour their experience of the local people and the country overall.Do your homework, know what to expect, and this is the most rewarding country in Southeast Asia to explore.Here goes:-1-TAKE YOUR VISA SERIOUSLY, VERY SERIOUSLY INDEEDYes, it seems like common sense, but I have seen tourists turned ...

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. Saigon doesn’t have a Times Square or Pudong. It’s a megacity comprised of small, distinct districts and alleys. Perch ... Read More »

Don’t get me wrong, I definitely have a soft spot for romance and everything cheesy that goes along with it. But rather than do a post about the top romantic destinations or trips to take with your lover this year, I wanted to share my favorite places to travel to without a significant other, because — yes — you can travel alone, and yes — it can be awesome!

NOLA, as it’s affectionately called, has both verve and personality.  There’s colourful architecture, flavourful food, and soulful music that seems to emanate from every fold and crevice of the city. And then… There’s the Southern hospitality (and accents) which can’t help but make you smile.  There’s the rich history, which is absolutely captivating. And, of course, there’s the beauty and tenacity of the city’s people, who have survived the worst (Hurricane Katrina), and yet have still managed to turn lemons into lemonade. Y’all, I have SO many things to say about New Orleans, but so little time and space. Liebling and I travelled there last month on assignment for the tourism board and let me tell you– they kept us busy with loads of activities. However, to keep things organized and (semi) succinct, in this post I’m only going to share my top picks for things to do in New Orleans […]

What to wear in Morocco: Packing and dress code tips for women

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

Booked for a Moroccan vacation but not sure what to pack clothing-wise? Here’s my guide for what to wear in Morocco– so you’re not only fashionable, but within dress code. Are you a woman who’s planning a trip to Morocco or thinking about it?  If so, congratulations– you’ll have a fantastic time!  Morocco is so mystical, magical, and marvelous that I’ve been three times already and am mentally planning my fourth trip.  (Sidebar: be sure to check out my blog post on things to do in Marrakech— it’s the ultimate guide for how to get your life in one of Morocco’s most exciting cities!) 🎶Horse and carriage/ is for hire/ Mamacita/ please senorita/ We gonna riiiiiiise to the top…🎶 (100 points to those who recognized the Cam'ron lyrics lolz…) In Barcelona now but reminiscing about the experience that was Marrakech. So. Much. Fun. And loads to do even during a 6-day stay! These days I move pretty fast when I travel (especially alone)– more than 72 hours in one city and I start to get the itch to move on. But not so with Marrakech! I had initially decided to stick around so long because I didn't want to exhaust […]

‘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 »

SIEM REAP’S 10 BEST BARS: CLASSY, HIDDEN DIVES JUST OUTSIDE OF ANGKOR

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Every year I find myself in Siem Reap, Cambodia for a week. It’s inevitable, and always enjoyable.

Angkor Wat is, along with Bagan in Myanmar, one of the two most spectacular temple sites in Asia, if not the world. I’ve come back again and again with friends, or by myself. Although lately I barely spend time in the temples of Angkor Wat, I love the cafe and bar scene of nearby Siem Reap, a charming little French colonial town adjacent to Angkor that now serves as the tourist-amenity center of the region. Though a tourist town, it’s far from a tourist trap. There is something about the clear blue sky, slow clouds and that long twilight that I love here. And, there’s the drinks.

Pub Street is famous here. It is the center of Siem Reap and the fulcrum of activity in ... Read More »

#OpenFun With Carnival Cruise Lines!

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

Got the winter blues?  A Caribbean cruise with Carnival may be just what the doctor ordered. It’s winter in the Northern Hemisphere and you know what that means: extreme cold, fewer hours of daylight, and in many places, snow.  Oof. But if you’re a summer baby like me who craves sunlight, heat, and sidewalks free of ice and sleet, you’ll know that this can be a difficult time of the year– the bleakness and barrenness of winter have a way of making us feel blah! Alas, summer vibes have made way for SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), and it’s seriously threatening to snuff my typically sunny disposition. Luckily, my friends at Carnival Cruise Line have found a way to turn these cold, sad days of winter “Hot, hot, hot”(sidebar: anyone catch my reference to the Calypso song of the same name?! Just me? Well, okay then). How? They offered fans the chance to win a FREE Caribbean cruise via its social channels– and I can think of no better way to escape the winter doldrums than to steal away to the islands with Carnival. I speak from experience. Last year I partnered with Carnival on their seven day Western Caribbean cruise. […]

How to travel stress-free during the busy winter travel season

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

Thanks to Alamo, I’m sharing my tips for keeping your cool during the busiest air travel days of the year. I can’t help it:  there’s an extra spring in my step, I’m humming under my breath, and actually happy about the chill in the air.  Why?  Well, one reason is because, after a seemingly endless summer and very warm fall, I can FINALLY start wearing all my cute winter clothing (#IAmVain). The other reason? I’m a huge fan of winter wonderlands, piping hot beverages, and cold weather coziness! Yup, blame my Canadian roots, but I’m one of those people.  A post shared by Oneika Raymond (@oneikatraveller) on Aug 18, 2017 at 7:25am PDT But while I’m looking forward to going ice skating and building snowmen, there’s one thing I dislike about this season: traveling during the holidays. You see, while I obviously travel a lot and obviously love it, the crowds, delays, and expense involved with traveling during holiday periods (from Christmas all the way through to March Break) are hands-down my least favourite thing about this time of year. However, as a holiday travel veteran (especially by plane!)  I know a thing or two about how to cope. So, […]

Two Weeks in Vietnam: The Ultimate Holiday Itinerary

Road trip anyone? Why you should retrace the Civil Rights Movement through the U.S. Civil Rights Trail

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

Travelling stateside this year? A road trip to destinations along the U.S. Civil Rights Trail can’t be missed. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of U.S. Civil Rights Trail. All opinions are 100% mine. Infuriating.  Hurtful. Unbelievable. Transformative. Inspirational.  Emotional. These words immediately come to mind when I think of the Civil Rights Movement, the monumental fight for African-Americans to gain equal rights under U.S. law.   The movement, which largely took place in the 1950s and 1960s, was characterized by the struggle to end legalized racial segregation and discrimination in the United States.   Despite the abolishment of slavery nearly 100 years earlier, black Americans still suffered a number of social injustices.  Many were unable to go to good schools, access equal public transportation, or even vote. But through many years of persistence and major efforts involving civil resistance, nonviolent protest, and civil disobedience,  African-Americans were able to overcome, with the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act being signed in 1964 and 1965, respectively.  Yup, you read that right.  1964 and 1965… less than 55 years ago.  Wow.   As a black person who currently lives in the U.S. such a recent and […]

9 Tips for Solo Travel if You're a Girl - Oneika the Traveller

9 Tips for Solo Travel if You're a Girl - Oneika the Traveller


Oneika the Traveller

The most frequently asked question I get is how I afford to travel, which I answered in this post.  The second? My tips for solo female travel. I reluctantly did my first solo trip in 2007 to Zacatecas, Mexico.  I had just moved to Monterrey, Mexico to start a new teaching job the month before, and was already anxious to begin exploring the rest of the country. Zacatecas, a five hour bus journey away, was the perfect weekend trip and a great  opportunity to get myself better acquainted with my querido Mexico.  After searching for a travel partner and coming up empty-handed, I did something I never imagined I would do: I booked a ticket… For one. Gulp! Above: On my first solo trip in 2007 in Zacatecas, Mexico; Below:  2 years later, on a subsequent solo trip to Guanajuato, Mexico I was concerned… About my safety. About how I would occupy my time and itinerary sans travel companion(s). About how I would possibly look like a “loser” for travelling alone. But guess what?  The trip went amazingly well.  I met people. I saw cool stuff.  And most importantly, I realized that I could travel on my own. No longer …

How to Order Coffee in Vietnam Like a Local

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Vietnam is a country that runs on coffee. There is a cafe on just about every block in Saigon and Hanoi and they’re packed most of the day with a mix of locals leisurely sipping away enjoying the day and others grabbing a quick fix on their way to wherever they’re headed. The cafe culture in Saigon is why it’s one of our favorite cities in the world. To see the list of our favorite Saigon cafes, check out our post on it.

Coffee is brewed differently in Vietnam. It’s sort of a mix between the French press and pourover methods and despite producing great coffee, it’s surprisingly “low tech”. You won’t see any chem-lab looking siphons or giant blown-glass drip towers. Coffee is brewed in a little metal filter called a “phin”. Grounds go in, water goes in, and coffee ... Read More »

If I saw someone sitting there on their own, I would not just waltz into their bubble and install myself smash bang in front of them.There is a reason, they are there alone.A few months on I realise it’s called ‘being social’ and that is what solo travellers do – it’s perfectly normal.

10 THINGS I CAN’T TRAVEL WITHOUT

Recently I’ve taken a four-month break off of travel to settle into a comfortable life in a quiet town. It’s been nice, mostly.

I do miss packing and unpacking the bags. I miss tossing away ripped up socks, giving away paperback books, and moving what’s left of my big shampoo into a small little shampoo thingy.

Some things are essential to have packed and ready to grab when I’m on the road. I will not include the obvious things like a camera, computer, passport, etc. These following are the little home run hitters that are easy to forget about, but always needed:

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN THAILAND

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand, with over 26 million foreign entries in 2016, can be a very touristic place to visit. By some accounts, 20% of the Thai GDP is based on tourism (worldwide nations average about 10%). Thailand is often an entry point for all of Asia, a constant revolving door of tourists on short or extended trips. We’re writing this article to help you avoid getting your hand caught in that often dangerous door.

Thailand is a country that can live up to its high expectations and reputation. It really can be paradise. On the other hand, it can be a disappointing place filled with drunken pub crawlers, tourist scams, empty promises and subpar made-for-tourists versions of local dishes. Pad thai made with instant noodles? You’ll find it all over Phuket and Koh Samui. If you venture past the tourists districts, the food ... Read More »

The 5 Best Night Markets in Taipei

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Taipei is inarguably one of the top street food cities in the world. Taiwan is known as the land of snacks: they have literally invented and re-invented genre after genre of snack food over the years. From pearl tea to fried chicken, the Taiwanese are all about inventing and perfecting the ultimate snack foods. Think Chinese-influenced foods created with the ingenuity and dedication to perfection that (you would think) only the Japanese would bring. While Taipei isn’t quite as famous with local Taiwanese as Tainan for their snack culture, they’ve got it covered and will most likely be your first stop in Taiwan. The sheer volume of street food options available alone are enough but, matched with the quality and price of the food available on the streets, it’s pretty much unbeatable. The catch with Taipei street food though, is ... Read More »

10 Countries Every Black Woman Should Visit | Traveling While Black

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

Are you a black woman who travels? Here are ten destinations to add to your travel bucket list. I’ve written often about how “Traveling While Black” is different.  In a number of places around the world, your black skin color will get you noticed;  while most of it is positive, I’ve wondered aloud about whether I should be mad at all the extra attention. It turns out I’m not alone.  As a black travel blogger with a decent following, I am routinely asked about African-American friendly countries; I frequently field questions from other melanin-blessed travelers about the best countries for black people to visit. And as a sista who lives her best life abroad (and documents it online), a good number of those questions come from African-American women travelers specifically. Now, keep in mind that it’s difficult to pinpoint the best countries for black women to visit– travel is so personal, after all. But since I get asked all the time, here are my suggestions for ten countries every black woman should visit at some point in her life! 1. Brazil Said to have “the body of America and the soul of Africa”, a getaway to Brazil is a no-brainer for […]

Why are travel blogging and travel media STILL so WHITE? Not only a rant, but also solutions

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

The fact that travel media is STILL so white in this day and age is disappointing.  But here are my suggestions for how to increase diversity and inclusion. In the last week, I’ve been tagged in a number of conversations on social media about the lack of diversity in travel media (thanks Fidel from My Leiover for the most recent tag on Instagram yesterday).  Most of the dialogues appear to be sparked by an article making its rounds on the internet that asks whether the travel community is “too white”.  In it, Australian journalist Ben Groundwater writes: Think about it: the vast majority of successful travel bloggers and influencers out there, the ones you probably follow on social media and draw inspiration from on a daily basis are skinny, good-looking white people. The travel presenters you see on TV are skinny, good-looking white people. And even the vast majority of successful writers in traditional media are also – well, white people. There’s a noticeable homogeneity to the voices of travel throughout the world. The majority of the people who document and analyse the globe from a travellers’ perspective are white, and privileged. They see the planet from a certain standpoint. […]

SURVIVING BORACAY ALONE

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

In March of 2012, I was nearly finished with a 3-week journey moving west through the Visayas region of The Philippines. Visayas is famous for beach and diving destinations. I have never been very interested in beaches, so I was focused on the cities of Cebu, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Iloilo and Kalibo. I did, however, have a beach destination as my final stop before flying out of the country. That beach was the most famous beach in all of The Philippines- Boracay. I was all by my sad self during these weeks in the Philippines. I’d met people here and there along the way, but I didn’t join a backpacker caravan or fall in love. So, how is it traveling to Boracay alone, anyway?

Often beach destinations entice travelers of impossibly clear turquoise waters bookended by eternal sunrises and sunsets. So often, ... Read More »

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.

Let’s ride: I’m a Chief Travel Guide for Alamo Rent A Car!

by Oneika @ Oneika the Traveller

I’ve partnered with Alamo Rent A Car and I couldn’t be more excited about it! Anyone who knows me well knows that travel represents freedom for me. The ability to discover new sights and sounds, learn about new cultures, foods, and neighbourhoods, and generally explore without limits gives me wings. Those same people also know that I thoroughly enjoy the autonomy that comes with exploring a destination by car. As a frequent solo traveller who is fiercely independent, I LOVE the idea of being able to move about at my own rhythm and pace, completely uninhibited by bus and train schedules. And as someone who likes to be in control, it feels amazing to be in the driver’s seat literally and figuratively! For this reason, I’m honoured to announce my latest partnership: I’ve been selected as one of the Chief Travel Guides for Alamo Rent A Car!  This means that over the next year I’ll be espousing the virtues of renting a car on your travels– primarily by creating content for Alamo’s Scenic Route online hub.  But have no fear, I’ll be linking to those articles on this here blog, so you won’t miss a thing.
