Wat Phra That Doi Suthep: My Favorite Temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand

by JB Macatulad @ Will Fly for Food: Travel + Food Guides

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai may not be as unique as Chiang Rai's White Temple, or as grand as Wat Pho in Bangkok, but for me, it's the most beautiful. It's a striking temple and my favorite thus far in Thailand.

Hanoi’s best boutique hotels

by Quynh Anh @ ALO Travel Asia

Hanoi might be famous for its impenetrable walls of Vespas, but the city isn’t quite as chaotic as it’s chalked up to be. Wandering about the capital of Vietnam, travelers expecting a wild urban adventure might be pleasantly surprised to also find quiet, leafy streets and hidden coffee shops. One of the most charming aspects of the city is the plethora of restored neoclassical and Gothic architecture — a holdover from the city’s stint as a... read more

Budapest is a city known for a cafe culture that’s as rich as the cream that flows into its coffee.

My 2017 Travel Recap – Month by Month

by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

Oh man, I think I’ve missed the whole New Year’s resolution and recap-of-the-past-year blog post bandwagon. But just for giggles, I’m gonna try it. Since I’ve been so slack giving you the latest on my life, here’s what I got up to this year… 2017 was all about making that change from full-time, carefree, backpacker-style traveling to freelancing. That meant camping, housesitting, and having our own car and (at times) our own temporary home. It came with some struggles and rough edges, and it was not always as pretty as these photos entail. But the flexibility to live in a different country every other month is just incredible. Destination wise, while it was awesome and beautiful, I found that New Zealand isn’t my most favorite travel destination in the world, that I’m still in love with Southeast Asia, that Portugal is really all it’s cracked up to be, and that it’s still good to go home occasionally. January Marko and I rang in the New Year sending off a paper lantern into the unbelievably beautiful night sky of Chiang Mai, Thailand surrounded by tons of other glowing lanterns. We ate great tons of khao soi and fried chicken, joined a […]

Where Next? My 2018 Travel Plans

by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

The answer is… not all that much! (Aha, clickbait! Gotcha!) Just kidding. Kinda. The real answer is… not much, yet! Man, how far we’ve come since I wrote this post over a year ago while sitting in Nepal watching Trump win the election. I was trying to figure out how to make money to keep traveling, hanging out with an Englishman named Marko, and internally debating if I would, in fact, enjoy a five-day hike in the Himalayas… Okay, so maybe we haven’t come that far. Though I’m no longer in that “I don’t know where I’ll be a week from now and everything I own is sandy” stage, I’m still taking this freelance-and-travel thing about a month at a time. It’s too tough to plan more than that! And it certainly keeps things interesting… Right Now I’m back in England at the moment in Marko’s little village of Shotteswell. Our only plans are to maybe go to the pub, book the massage he got me for Christmas, meet up with some of his friends for beers, see a rugby match, and ummm, do some puzzles and play some games around the house? I’m currently wearing my bathrobe for whole days while I […]

51 Unique + Fun Things to do in Chile | Chile

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

If you’re traveling down the Gringo Trail, Chile might feel unexpectedly familiar. There are no ramshackle busses or alpacas wandering the streets. Instead, there are arbitrary laws, expensive cups of coffee, and high speed internet connections. In some weird way, you might miss the chaos. I wondered whether I was making a mistake by blowing the rest of my travel budget on a place that looked so much like home (and cost as much, too). But there’s something special about Chile. After I really got to know it, Chile became one of my favorite countries. Perhaps it was because I finally started to speak Spanish or was traveling on my own for the first time in years, or perhaps it’s just because Chile is diverse,  dynamic, and completely fascinating. Want to experience Chile beneath the surface? I bet you’ll dig it too. From geodesic domes where you can spend the night to the otherworldly nature of Patagonia, here’s are some of the weird, wild, and totally fun things to do in Chile. Very Chilean Experiences 1. Start up north for the gentle surf & sun in Arica (Arica y Parinacota) 2. Head into Valle de Elqui for a pisco tasting tour by bicycle (Coquimbo) […]

Blood Tests, Birth Control, and Motorbike Accidents: My Experience with Healthcare Abroad

by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

I’ve learned a lot over these past 20 months of travel (man, has it been that long?) and one of those things is that getting medical care abroad is totally not a big deal. Turns out, it’s actually way easier than getting it at home! This post is a bit of an informative letter to my past self… and anyone else thinking about leaving the U.S. for an extended period of time. It’s also for anyone curious about how healthcare abroad has been working out for me. Worries About Healthcare and Long-Term Travel I’d like to write the post I wish I’d read before leaving home. A post to let anyone (especially folks from the States) know what it’s like to be on the road and need healthcare or prescription meds, and how I handled it. The good news is that so far, it’s been way better – as in, more efficient and cheaper – than being at home. For me, at least. After I quit my job to travel, I was left health insurance-less. Like pretty much instantly. (Well, I opted for one month of COBRA so that I didn’t have to pay the penalty for being uninsured, and uh, it was […]

The Beaches in Dhërmi, Albania are Amazing!

by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

Wait… Albania? Easily one of my favorite experiences from the past year and a half was an impromptu trip to the Balkans at the end of the summer. When Western Europe was getting a little harsh on the budget and same-y, the Eastern Bloc countries with their unpretentious vibes and complicated history provided a much-needed reprieve. Especially Albania. There’s incredible scenery, great hospitality, an interesting mix of Islam and Christianity, shockingly good food, and uhhh Albanian beaches are like whoa. At the risk of sounding cheesy and all “I’m out here finding myself,” have you ever been somewhere you just felt instantly comfortable and at ease? That’s how I felt in the little coastal village of Dhërmi. Like I’d returned to a past life. Okay, now we’re getting really heavy. I’ll stop. It was so calm and stunningly gorgeous, and the people were so welcoming and friendly that I genuinely felt like I could just stay there. I’d read, I’d sit on the beach, I’d learn to make sheep’s cheese and bread from the lady who owned the small hotel where we stayed. All that is to say… I’ll have to return. It was the epitome of laid back. And that’s probably due to the fact […]

This tiny little island only takes about 5 minutes to walk the width of at its center but there is surprisingly a lot of activity on this hidden gem. Plus the beaches aren’t hard on the eyes either…Harbour Island is dotted with colorful buildings covered in tropical blooms. We spent hours driving around our rental golf cart trying to decide which house we would live in if we moved here in our dreams.The crystal blue water is a sight to see in and of itself. If you look close enough, you can tell that the sand on the beach is pink! The pink of the sand doesn’t appear as vivid in photos but in person, especially at sunset, it’s a fun touch added to the island.  […]

Winter Wonderland in Jackson Hole

You may remember from last fall that I spend time with family in Jackson Hole, Wyoming a few times a year. We always go for Christmas and so do my extended family. It’s such a fun week! Before Atlanta warms up too much {let’s be honest, warm up now please!}, I wanted to take the time to share photos from the week. Plus I saw that Wyoming got more snow over the last few days! Here’s photos from the winter wonderland in Jackson Hole over Christmas: Some of my family skis and some of my family snowboards but we always head down the hill together! We had multiple feet of snow within 24 hours so the fresh powder on the mountain was amazing. On a day off from skiing and snowboarding, my mom, sister and I walked around town.

Following the French invasion at the 1800s, coffee was introduced in Vietnam, but the source of coffee back then was limited therefore it was considered as a luxury good, only the French colonists along with Nguyễn dynasty’s nobles could have […]

Ubud, Bali is such a magical place. And as such, it’s a must on any Bali itinerary. I visited Ubud the very first time I was in Bali in July 2016 as one of my last Southeast Asian destinations before returning home from my year as an expat in Vietnam. When I had the opportunity to go back to explore Bali on a work trip, I jumped at the chance and was thrilled I’d be returning. Since it is a such a popular Balinese destination for travelers, it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of hotels to choose from. I have my favorites after my visit – of course every client is different, so one person may love hotel A, while another client loves hotel B. While I can count a handful of Ubud hotels I love for clients, two of my favorite hotels are the COMO […]

Why You Should Learn German in the City | Germany

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

This post is in partnership with the Speakeasy Berlin. I received complimentary lessons in exchange for an honest review, but all opinions are my own. German is tough to learn. After one month of living in Berlin, I was still fumbling through the most basic interactions. I spent time with more international people than Germans, and the Germans I did know switched to flawless English the minute they saw me sweat. My accent was complete scheiße. Without grammar, I was nervous to speak. I’d managed to learn a few phrases on accident, but if I wasn’t ordering beer or catching a train, my German was next to useless. Even still, it seems learning German in Berlin is going to be a lot harder than learning Spanish in Ecuador. I realized if I ever hoped to tackle this feisty, lawless, not-so-romantic language, I was going to need German classes in Berlin, and lots of them. Thinking about learning German in Berlin? Here’s everything you need to know about learning German with Speakeasy Berlin. Where to Learn German Abroad Are you moving to Germany to learn German OR learning German because you moved to Germany? If your focus is on studying German, you should make […]

From Saranda to Ksamil in Beaches – The End of Albania

by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

Sorry for the cliffhanger, guys. Things got a little challenging there for a minute – what with all the freelancing and entertaining guests while traveling. I do neglect the blog when I’m feeling less motivated. I’m sorry for being the worst. Look, Albania is awesome. My biggest regret (other than not spending more time there) is that I didn’t write this post sooner and it’s now the end of the summer season, and I may have deprived some people of a tiny source of Internet information for their Balkans travel planning… because there’s not a lot out there on Albania. Because, trust me, this place is exceptional. And it’s still cool in September even when the crowds have died down! When people ask me where I’ve got to return to, Albania is at the top of my list. Still. One year later and I feel like I haven’t delved beneath the enigmatic exterior that is Albania and it’s wonderfully welcoming yet stoic people. There are some places that are easy to love. There are some places with simple logistics and a well-worn tourist trail. And there are some places where you have to convince your travel companion that you’ve gotta […]

A Final Day in Ha Giang

by Mike @ Hanoi For 91 Days

It was with reluctance that we got back on our motorbikes, and put Du Gìa in our rear view mirrors. Our next stop would return us to Ha Giang, and complete our tour with Chu Chu. This trip had been incredible, and it was to be our final adventure in Vietnam. Not just four days, but six months were coming to an end, and it was hard to stomach.

Observations & Ramblings From Two Months Camping Around New Zealand

by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

Here are a few things that I’ve noticed while camping and housesitting here in New Zealand for the past two and a half months. This post is a bit of a ramble (kinda like this one) so enjoy… New Zealand is expensive. I knew it would be. But like, it’s more expensive than home. Gas and booze especially. And it kills me that I can’t really afford to eat out at all the great-looking restaurants while staying on budget. Losing things in the car makes me feel like I’m losing my mind. When you have literally all of your belongings in a finite space and you can’t find your chapstick, it’s excruciating. Because you know it’s in there somewhere and you’ve just misplaced it, or it’s fallen out of the car never to be seen again… Related: I have to stop setting things on top of the car. Every drive here is beautiful. There’s rarely a time when you’re not looking out the window at some gorgeous view of mountains, lakes, or coastlines. It’s absurd really. It’s also great because the radio in our car doesn’t work anymore… All backpackers here have the same stuff. It’s like, “Oh you have that tent? […]

Here’s the Thing About Eating Dog in Vietnam…

Before arriving, we'd read a lot about the Vietnamese penchant for chowing down on "man's best friend". However, during our three months in Saigon, we hadn't seen a single plate of dog being offered anywhere, and decided the stories were exaggerated. But it turns out that, in the north, they do eat dog. And it's not exactly uncommon.

She mostly photographs landscapes and skyscapes. What inspired you to become an expat? Traveling was the main reason. I wanted to explore the World and I wanted to experience staying away from home. Why did you choose Sydney? I had three options based on my job opportunities – Denmark, Canada and Australia. This was the first time I was moving away from family and I knew it was hard for my mother to accept this change. Because of which I decided on a place that was closest to home (India), which was Australia. Did you go alone or did you have a friend/significant other with you? Yes, alone.

When Shit Hits the Fan, Move to Berlin | Germany

Going Wild: 15 Treks in South America | South America

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

Let’s think of South America as the world’s playground. Everyone has heard of the Inca Trail, but when it comes to treks in South America, that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. You can get the most from your time on the continent by exploring its limits. You can cross borders on your own two feet or be at the top of a volcano before the sun has even peeked over the horizon. And that, guys, is what adventure travel is all about. There are thousands of trails to choose from in South America. Knowing just which trek to pick can be your first big challenge. I collaborated with some extra rad adventure travelers to detail the best treks in South America so you don’t miss a single one. Let’s get to it! Some photos have been edited by me and may not reflect the style of the photographer.  The Best Hikes & Treks in South America Huemul Circuit | Argentina Nearest City: El Chaltén, Argentina // Difficulty: Hard // Duration: 4 Days The Huemul Circuit may just be 63km, but it’s considered one of the most challenging treks in South America.

Stay Strange: A Design Loft in Munich | Germany

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

This post is in partnership with The Flushing Meadows in Munich. I received a complimentary night in exchange for my honest review, but all opinions are my own! “F…L…U…S…H…I…N…G…M…E…A…D…O…W…S” The light bulbs flickered on in sequence, both spelling out the name of the hotel and casting light onto the otherwise vacant Fraunhoferstraße. You’d never know that Munich is home to 1.43 million people if you happen to arrive on a Wednesday after 8pm. Behind the heavy door was ambient music and an elevator directing me to the fourth floor. The high ceilings and exposed pipes in the hallway felt unapologetically cool. I was impressed and I hadn’t even checked into my room yet. Looking for a unique hotel in Munich with a distinctly cool character? Let me introduce you to the Flushing Meadows. About The Flushing Meadows The Flushing Meadows is a design hotel located in the Glockenbach. The space was initiated by Arnold/Jäger/Werner. The trio are designers, gastronomists, and architects by trade, and you’d never even guess that The Flushing Meadows is their first endeavor into the hotel industry.

Eating All the Food in Hanoi (And Another Street Food Tour!) - Trailing Rachel


Trailing Rachel

Hanoi’s food scene was everything I’d expected it to be. I tried SO much new stuff in the week that I was there. Though with how crazy plentiful the street food is, the lack of sidewalk space to maneuver around on, and the absolute chaos of motorbikes zipping by, it can be a little overwhelming to decide what your next meal will be. So the solution is simple: eat all the food in Hanoi. Of course, I’m exaggerating. But really, what you should do is try everything you see that looks good (or smells good – literally, sometimes we just followed delicious smells to find the snacks we wanted). You’re never too full for another spring roll, or banh mi… or egg coffee. The best food I’ve had so far has been on the street or at a small place that specializes in only a few or maybe even just one dish. Don’t, just don’t enter a proper restaurant with closed doors or a man out front waving a menu and yelling at you. A big thanks to Anna at Slightly Astray for providing me with what turned out to be a pocket guide (more like a Bible, really) to the food in Hanoi, both in …

Only Happy When It Rains (ft. Florence) | Italy

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

When it rains in Florence, Botticelli Angel umbrellas create an impenetrable fortress between human and sky. Lines to enter the Il Duomo di Firenze are almost as impressive as the cathedral itself, and you can forget about seeing The Birth of Venus without an iPad hovering in the foreground. Happy couples get caricature sketches while those that argued over getting lost all day slug back carafes of Sangiovese wine and binge eat pizza instead. It’s no secret there’s a dense collection of Renaissance art and architecture in Florence, and apparently, people are into it.  Each year, the UNESCO World Heritage city (population 370,000) welcomes 16 million tourists, and you can really, really feel it. It’s fair to say that pretty little Florence has a tourist problem. If you imagine Florence to be like a quaint photo, you might not like the city much at all. But if you don’t mind getting off the main streets and watching the crowds from afar, you’ll find garish window displays at high-fashion retailers, quirky cocktail bars, and local markets selling plenty of divine Italian food that isn’t even pasta. Want to get beyond the top 10 and see the secrets of Florence? Here’s some street photography […]
