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.

Things I learnt when an airline lost my luggage

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

In July I was travelling from Barcelona to Luxembourg when security strikes at Barcelona airport meant we were unable to get through security in time to board our flight. However our checked bags did make the flight and took off without us and were subsequently lost by the airline for four days. This resulted in us having to find an alternative route to Luxembourg with only the clothes on our back and the items in our hand luggage. Just over a month later my luggage again failed to turn up on a luggage carousel, this time in Auckland. Thankfully this time it was located within a few hours in Frankfurt, having missed my connection to Hong Kong 30 hours earlier. I got it back three days later.

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 »

8 of the Best Cafes in Hanoi

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

The big cities in Vietnam have a cafe culture that is virtually unknown to the rest of the world. Don’t expect a Chemex of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe with hints of blueberry and strawberry or an Aeropressed Kenyan. You might be able to locate one eventually, but not before tripping over scores of cafes serving up tumblers of coffee so dark it looks like used motor oil and smells like the most intense mocha you’ve ever had. It’s no secret that we love Vietnamese coffee and as a follow up to our very popular Saigon cafes list, we offer a list of some of our favorites in the northern capital city.

My favourite places of 2017 (and a wishlist for 2018)

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

Out of everywhere I went last year there are some clear winners in my mind as to my favourite places of 2017. 2017 was an epic year of travel for me. I achieved all the plans and dreams I had this time last year, visiting five countries for the first time and quite a number of new cities. Madrid, Spain I’d been to Barcelona before and was surprised when it didn’t blow me away as I’d expected it to. This meant I hit Madrid in July without high expectations and found it to be one of my favourite places. Madrid was sweltering but the rooftop pool at Dear Hotel Madrid was beautifully cool as well as being located in the vicinity of views and cocktails. The breakfast offering was also outstanding and our room probably the biggest Renee and I had while travelling through Europe. The shops were open late, […]

‘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 »

Currently // The aftermath of a multi-month adventure

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

It blows my mind that I have a UK bank account and passport as well as New Zealand ones. I can get off a flight, rock straight through customs, use my Oyster Card on the Tube, walk into a bar in London and pay with a local bank card. I spent my last few days in London in late August wondering why I don’t live there. I cycled along canals on a Boris Bike, walked through parks as people sunbathed and enjoyed picnics, ate at amazing restaurants, and drank outside at pubs with good people. But surely it’s possible to somehow have the best of the travel and home worlds, regardless of how isolated this country is? Because I also love living in Wellington right now. I also start to struggle with the pace of long-term travel, perhaps even becoming anhedonic. I want to be where my friends and family […]

10 things to do before you travel internationally

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

Excluding the mandatory essentials of booking flights and accommodation and even if you’re only travelling overseas for a short period of time there are a number of easy to forget items it’s important to cross off before hopping on a plane. Prevent stress by ensuring you’ve considered these 10 things to do before you travel internationally. 1. Check your Passport It seems a no brainer, but the number of stories you hear of people turning up to fly with an expired passport makes this a mandatory item in this list. There needs to be enough space in your passport for new stamps, it can’t be damaged and should be valid for at least 6 months beyond your journey. Make sure you take copies of your passport and carry them with you, and make use of modern technology by either scanning or taking a photo of the relevant pages and store […]

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 »

Can an airport lounge membership save you money?

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

It’s a trap that’s easy to fall into: once you’ve experienced what it’s like to have an airport lounge membership it’s very hard to opt out again. After several years of free passes and a gifted membership, last year I found myself without access to Air New Zealand’s Koru Lounge and associated member benefits. Sitting at the gate to wait for your flight without the glam feel and perks a lounge brings suddenly feels a lot less glam. There are generally four ways you can gain access to an airport lounge: Pay for a business-class (or better) ticket Improve your airline status to Gold or higher. This means frequently flying with the same airline rather than purchasing the best fare available Travel with someone who is a member Pay for a membership My Westpac credit card meant no joining fee and a $125 discount on the annual fee for Air New Zealand’s Koru airport […]

24 hours in Stockholm, Sweden

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

One of the great things about travelling in Europe is the cheap flights available between the cities there. Renee and I bought some ridiculously cheap flights to spend a weekend in Stockholm in August. We arrived late on a Friday night from Bergen and flew back to London on the Sunday afternoon which basically left us with just 24 hours in Stockholm to explore, but which proved enough time with a planned route and some prioritising. The World Triathlon Championships were taking place in Stockholm the same weekend and with the costs of accommodation high we stayed in a Airbnb in Södermalm. Our 24 hours in Stockholm At 10am on Saturday we loaded up on Bagels and coffee for breakfast at The Bagel in the middle of Södermalm. I went with the ‘New York’ which was the classic Salmon, Cream Cheese and Capers. At 10:40am we set off on foot towards downtown Stockholm […]
