Being American in Vietnam

Being American in Vietnam

by adtperez @ The Bindlestiff

In retrospect, Graham Greene’s The Quiet American is so eerily prophetic that it would be forgivable to read it and believe it was a post-Vietnam War indictment of American involvement. Lambasted when it came out as “un-American,” the novel slams America’s imperialist urgency to alter a political course that it did not understand, and did […]

A Taboo Talk for Adventurous Women | General

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and DivaCup, but the opinions are all mine! #PeriodConfidence #TryTheDivaCup #CollectiveBias Before backpacking around South America and moving to Germany, I was challenged to plan ahead for the things I normally dealt with in real time. I made a final appointment with my gynecologist and foreboded something scary during my lapse in insurance. I considered stocking up on six months of birth control, antibiotics, and tampons. Does it strike you as ridiculous that someone would leave the country with only eight shirts, but 168 birth control pills, 36 antibiotics, and 240 tampons? What was previously inconvenient became an expensive and frustrating battle, but these aren’t exactly things you can skip over, so I had to find another way. Girl’s gotta plan ahead! For this post in partnership with DivaCup, I’ve chosen to talk about reproductive health and other taboo topics because we don’t talk about them enough and they totally matter.  How to Manage your Reproductive Health for Long Term Travel Preventing Pregnancy When it comes to sex, you’ve got to do what is best for you.

‘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?

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

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.

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 »

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 »

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 »

51 Unique + Fun Things to do in Chile | Chile

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

If you’re traveling down the Gringo Trail, Chile might feel unexpectedly familiar. There are no ramshackle busses or alpacas wandering the streets. Instead, there are arbitrary laws, expensive cups of coffee, and high speed internet connections. In some weird way, you might miss the chaos. I wondered whether I was making a mistake by blowing the rest of my travel budget on a place that looked so much like home (and cost as much, too). But there’s something special about Chile. After I really got to know it, Chile became one of my favorite countries. Perhaps it was because I finally started to speak Spanish or was traveling on my own for the first time in years, or perhaps it’s just because Chile is diverse,  dynamic, and completely fascinating. Want to experience Chile beneath the surface? I bet you’ll dig it to. From geodesic domes where you can spend the night to the otherworldly nature of Patagonia, here’s are some of the weird, wild, and totally fun things to do in Chile. Very Chilean Experiences 1. Start up north for the gentle surf & sun in Arica (Arica y Parinacota) 2. Head into Valle de Elqui for a pisco tasting tour by bicycle (Coquimbo) […]

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.

Life Reflections After 6 Months of Travel

Why You Should Learn German in the City | Germany

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

This post is in partnership with the Speakeasy Berlin. I received complimentary lessons in exchange for an honest review, but all opinions are my own. German is tough to learn. After one month of living in Berlin, I was still fumbling through the most basic interactions. I spent time with more international people than Germans, and the Germans I did know switched to flawless English the minute they saw me sweat. My accent was complete scheiße. Without grammar, I was nervous to speak. I’d managed to learn a few phrases on accident, but if I wasn’t ordering beer or catching a train, my German was next to useless. Even still, it seems learning German in Berlin is going to be a lot harder than learning Spanish in Ecuador. I realized if I ever hoped to tackle this feisty, lawless, not-so-romantic language, I was going to need German classes in Berlin, and lots of them. Thinking about learning German in Berlin? Here’s everything you need to know about learning German with Speakeasy Berlin. Where to Learn German Abroad Are you moving to Germany to learn German OR learning German because you moved to Germany? If your focus is on studying German, you should make […]

Only Happy When It Rains (ft. Florence) | Italy

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

When it rains in Florence, Botticelli Angel umbrellas create an impenetrable fortress between human and sky. Lines to enter the Il Duomo di Firenze are almost as impressive as the cathedral itself, and you can forget about seeing The Birth of Venus without an iPad hovering in the foreground. Happy couples get caricature sketches while those that argued over getting lost all day slug back carafes of Sangiovese wine and binge eat pizza instead. It’s no secret there’s a dense collection of Renaissance art and architecture in Florence, and apparently, people are into it.  Each year, the UNESCO World Heritage city (population 370,000) welcomes 16 million tourists, and you can really, really feel it. It’s fair to say that pretty little Florence has a tourist problem. If you imagine Florence to be like a quaint photo, you might not like the city much at all. But if you don’t mind getting off the main streets and watching the crowds from afar, you’ll find garish window displays at high-fashion retailers, quirky cocktail bars, and local markets selling plenty of divine Italian food that isn’t even pasta. Want to get beyond the top 10 and see the secrets of Florence? Here’s some street photography […]

And we explored the unbelievable nature of the north during the third month. We've now collected our experiences in Hanoi and North Vietnam into an e-book travel guide, with all of our articles and over 280 full-color photographs, in one handy, portable edition.

On an Island in the Sun (Lake Titicaca Remix) | Bolivia

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

You’ll leave Isla del Sol, an island on Lake Titicaca, claiming to have day tripped on “the world’s highest commercially navigable lake”. I bet you’ve just been waiting your whole life to say that, huh? But having seen many of the world’s relatively oldest, biggest, unnecessarily tallest, and arbitrarily best attractions, I can safely say that Lake Titicaca is absolutely worth a visit. It might be the world’s highest, and South America’s second largest, but grandeur aside, it is a lovely place exploding with Bolivian culture. Stretching some 190 km, Lake Titicaca stands besides the Great Lakes in size with a delightfully Bolivian twist. On a quick jaunt from Peru, you’ll find the shores of Copacabana speckled with hardworking women in bowler hats, wearing braids that would take finer haired women a lifetime to grow. You can order trout fished straight from the water, cooked at least thirty different ways, for $3 a plate. The balsa boats call to pre-Colombian times, and no one really mentions the swan-shaped boats and XORBS in the harbor. Lake Titicaca is surprisingly kitschy (as evidenced by the very weird hillside hotel) but these are the things that bring Lake Titicaca from slightly overrun natural wonder to delightfully […]
