Most families bond over dinner in their living room, mine bonds over countless roadtrips. On our last visit to Indonesia (Dec 2014), we went to Garut (Tasikmalaya) to visit Kampung Naga, a traditional Javanese village.
This is a series of unrelated and unfiltered snippets of highlights, tidbits, and memories from our visit to Hong Kong.
Once common throughout Hong Kong, Tai O is one of the last remaining communities where you can still see these stilt houses.
It is connected to the outside world by a windy, motion sickness-inducing mountain road. There are no skyscrapers here, no neon signs. There aren’t even any cars. This was exactly what we were looking for!
Whenever someone asks me how Sri Lanka was, I always end up thinking of the time I spent hiking and exploring this region of low lying mist and clouds.
I started thinking of all the things I can get for $25 in Sri Lanka. 3 days’ accommodation. 25 lunches. A tuk tuk load of Tambili coconuts. $25 is a lot of money in Sri Lanka.
Tips for visiting Sri Lanka. Come visit my favorite Asian country.
I always recommend people to check out the local markets when they’re traveling. To be honest it’s not always the colorful tapestries you see in magazines. Sometimes it’s a photographer’s heaven, other times it’s just ‘meh’ if not downright dangerous.
Beruwala fish market is an example where it’s particular rewarding.
What’s coming up in travel and life. Big changes ahead.
Driving along the eastern side of Belitung coastline took us to this beach with colorful fishing boats.
Island hopping to see the collection of deserted islands around Belitung is a must do experience.
Last December, I went to Belitung Island. A small island off Sumatra that has only recently showed up on domestic tourists’ radar. I had never heard of Belitung Island until this time.
This is Sokcho. Down this street by the water, seafood restaurants line the street. I got dragged into one of these restaurants. Quite literally. I took a second too long to decide, the next thing you know my shoes are off and I’m sitting cross legged next to a low table and they’re putting fish on the grill.
