Napa Valley, California

The flowers of Napa Valley. I got a little obsessed after the first shot. I didn’t post everything… We ate at so many restaurants in Napa but since it is not from this year and the menu has changed, I won’t post all the photos. I will just post the Morimoto omakase since Japanese food…

Exclusive Interview Simon Rosbottom, Clipper Round the World Race

“Night time sees bodies sleeping all over the boat, attempting to find a cooler spot. A result of this temperature is that it is comfortable to spend all night on deck without a shirt but this isn’t without it’s hidden dangers. Girls if you only knew the trials and tribulation of being a man, the…

We had a huge list of must eats but only got around to some. We stayed a total of 9 days at the Aulani Disney Resort in Ko Olina. Will discuss the resort in another post. Let’s focus on some of our meals! It was my first time to Honolulu so if you go often,…

The Golden Triangle

The intersection of Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand. It is where the Mekong and Ruak rivers converge. I remember hiring a car from Chiang Rai to get here. It must have been around 2 hours by car. If you google it now, it says an hour but I remember it being much longer. It was a…

Bangkok, Thailand

Lubua at State Tower Hotel overlooks the city. The view is really amazing. If you don’t stay there, go to their rooftop Sky Bar or the highest open air Mediterranean restaurant in the world, Sirocco and you can still enjoy being on the top of Bangkok. Mezzaluna, the restaurant on the 65th floor also has…

Phuket, Thailand

3 things come to mind when you ask me about the best experiences in Phuket: good food, beautiful beaches, and spas.  The people in Phuket are very friendly and it is a fairly safe city to visit. I took the tuk tuk everywhere. I also hired a car one of the nights to get to…

Okinawa Secret

If you are going to Okinawa, you have to go see this in person. It’s breathtaking and I have never seen anything like this before in my travels! The entire beach is covered with seaweed and just look at those beautiful rocks in the distance. I can’t tell you where this place is in English…
