Eating Our Way Through Taipei & Jiufen with The Best Tour Guide Ever

In the past three years of traveling I’ve had at least two tour guides for whom I’ve abused the superlative of “the worst tour guide ever.”  One got me locked out of my car on an overnight train in Thailand, and the other had me looking for a hat store all over Munich until I […]

Backpackers of Cartagena

Waking up with a massive hangover and minimal sleep under my belt, I was still super excited that MuiMui would be arriving in the afternoon.  As part of my older sister duties, my parents had instructed me to pick up the little one at the airport and get her safely to the hostel.  Did I […]

Tourist vs Non-Tourist Day in Venice (Photo Heavy)

According to the Italian I had met on the bus, Venice is one of the worst cities it Italy to be a local, and I think I can understand why.  It would be like living in New York, if the entirety of the city was Time Square on New Years Eve.  Sure you can find a quiet alley, but […]

Culture Shock and the Bright Side of Bangalore

My first morning in Bangalore I woke up feeling miserable.  We had been massively ripped off on our taxi, our hotel was sketchy at best – I was not in the mood to speak to anyone.  The other two woke up and went to breakfast and I stayed in bed where at least the air […]

Flashpacking in Sydney (and more Food Porn)

Due to the fact that when I told people I was leaving I got several monetary gifts from family and friends and awesome tips from customers I’d like to show that your money went to productive things so I’m dubbing some of you sponsors for excursions I may not have otherwise been able to afford. […]

St. Patrick’s Day in Sydney and Food Porn at the Fish Market

The next day it was rise and shine in time to see the morning dew – and by morning dew I mean dew of the Tullamore sort.  It was St. Patrick’s Day after all. It should also be noted that I have 3 favorite things in the world.  They are: drinking (of course), eating and […]
