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 […]

Scuba diving in Zanzibar and Lake Malawi

Posted on February 26th, 2014 by BreAnn

When James and I booked our 20 day tour through eastern Africa, it hadn’t even occurred to us that we’d have scuba diving opportunities… I mean, when you hear “Africa” you don’t typically think “scuba!” But apparently, there are many interesting places to dive throughout the continent… and we decided to try out a couple […]

Searching for the “Big Five” in the Serengeti

Posted on February 10th, 2014 by BreAnn

For the rest of my life, I will remember those nights in the Serengeti National Park, sleeping under the stars and hearing the sounds of ELEPHANTS roaming around and eating outside our tents at night!!  Yea… a bit scary, but how incredible, right? One of the top places in the world to go on a […]

TRIP UPDATE: We’re in Africa!… but where exactly?

Posted on January 27th, 2014 by BreAnn

Just to catch you up to speed quick, here is a photo of the vehicle we are being carted around in RIGHT at this VERY moment (and have been since January 20th): Yep, it’s a TRUCK!… not a bus.   And here are our new friends we are currently traveling with:   So… it’s true: […]

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! […]

Gaining an interesting perspective on the Vietnam War

Posted on July 17th, 2013 by BreAnn

I’ll admit it: I hated history class as a student from elementary school right through grade twelve. I didn’t absorb much of what I studied because I learned just enough to make the grade and move on. So, as we traveled through Vietnam, it was very eye-opening to see actual war sites and learn about […]

From bustling Hanoi to the lovely Island of Cat Ba, Vietnam.

Posted on July 3rd, 2013 by BreAnn

Most cities in Vietnam are bustling with many colorful people, shops, and thousands of motorbikes… it can be quite hectic! That is exactly what we experienced as soon as we landed (on May 26th) in the northern part of the country in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. In the shuttle van from the Hanoi airport […]

Our great adventure of food poisoning, hiking, and FOG!

Posted on May 31st, 2013 by BreAnn

So there we were in Hong Kong for eight days, and it was time to move on to mainland China. We weren’t exactly sure what to expect in this brand new country, but we figured it wouldn’t be as much as a “breeze” as Hong Kong was. Our first stop in mainland China was Guangzhou […]

The Great Ocean road to Adelaide

Posted on August 16th, 2010 by BreAnn

We were up SUPER EARLY on Saturday morning (August 7) to meet up with a tour bus that would be taking us on a 2 1/2 day drive from Melbourne along “The Great Ocean Road” to Adelaide.  The Great Ocean Road is a stretch of land and ocean just southwest of Melbourne, starting from a […]
