Dancing Around The World – Inspirational and Fun Travel Video!

Posted on March 1st, 2017 by BreAnn

On February 26, 2013, James and I set out on an amazing, incredible, and life-changing one year journey around the world. Throughout Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe, and the U.S. we immersed ourselves in the fascinating culture, experienced many beautiful landscapes and monuments, had a lot of crazy adventures, and met and traveled with SO many […]

The crazy side of travel: Unfortunate happenings during our round-the-world trip!

Posted on March 26th, 2015 by BreAnn

Massive puking, motorcycle accident, torrential rain, horrible allergic reactions, and lost luggage: there are quite a few unfortunate events and happenings that we encountered on our round-the-world trip!  When you travel in foreign countries, you are constantly experiencing  strange food, different climates and insects, transportation schedules, and very different cultures… so it’s very likely that […]

THE TOTAL Round-The-World-Trip COUNT!

Posted on September 10th, 2014 by BreAnn

After traveling for 330 days, you may have a LOT of “statistical” questions for us, such as: How much money did you spend? How many countries and continents did you travel to? How many flights did you take? And you may like to know some random facts/statistics as well, such as: Did you know that […]

Getting medicated and vaccinated

Posted on October 1st, 2013 by BreAnn

James and I had to get A LOT of vaccinations (shots) before we left the US so that we could stay safe and healthy on our travels to all these different countries around the world. It’s actually a bit insane just how many crazy vaccines we have circulating throughout our bodies at the moment: Hepatitis […]

Here’s a bunch of funny motorcycle pics!

Posted on September 19th, 2013 by BreAnn

All throughout Asia, especially Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand, the streets were absolutely flooded with thousands and thousands of motorbikes!  Among these bikes, we often saw some motorbikes carrying HUGE and random objects… Mattresses, furniture, plants, long pipes, and sometimes up to SIX people on one bike!! I was amused and fascinated by this “phenomenon,” so […]

Volunteering in Trat: The most fulfilling experience of the trip thus far

Posted on August 30th, 2013 by James

Hello! James here… So there we were again: stuck at another border crossing with travel agencies that didn’t see BreAnn and I as anything more than walking cash machines.  This time, we were exiting Cambodia and trying to make our way through the eastern boarder of Thailand.  We were on our way to the small […]

Siem Reap and the amazing Angkor Wat

Posted on August 20th, 2013 by BreAnn

When we arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia (on June 27th), we weren’t exactly sure what to expect. We knew about the amazing Angkor Wat temple complex, and even seeing photos of this wonder online ahead of time is enough to make any travel enthusiast giddy with excitement! But we soon found out that there were […]

Phnom Penh: A beautiful city with a horrific past

Posted on August 15th, 2013 by BreAnn

Cambodia is a unique developing country, full of amazing temples and architecture, but it is also a country that is emerging from decades of civil conflict including a massive genocide in the 1970s. Either way, it is definitely an interesting place to visit. Crossing the border from Vietnam into Cambodia (on June 23rd), we visibly […]

Shocking Cambodia statistics: Average salaries $1/day, one-fifth of the population killed in the 70s, and more

Posted on August 4th, 2013 by BreAnn

When I was researching these statistics for Cambodia, I WAS ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY! Most people in Cambodia only earn $1 per day salary, only 45% of Cambodian kids actually finish elementary school, men’s life expectancy is only 60 years old, and over one-fifth of Cambodia’s population was killed in a matter of three years (1975-78) […]

Our worst trip experience thus far: Mekong Delta tour with one aggressive and crazy tour guide!

Posted on July 26th, 2013 by BreAnn

Our RTW trip thus far has consisted of mostly “do it yourself” planning and travel, but when arriving in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh) in the south of Vietnam, we decided to let a tour company take us for a whirl around the Mekong Delta and over the border to Cambodia. And—YIKES—what a WHIRL it was! […]
