Whatever Happened To Shrimp Scampi?

by Jess Kapadia @ Food Republic

Shrimp scampi is the undisputed king of seafood pasta dishes, and deserves all the room in your stomach. But is it just us, or are we seeing the disappearance of this simple shellfish perfection from Italian menus? Once a reliable staple of red-and-white checkered tablecloth joints famous for chicken parmesan and fettuccine alfredo, this dish of shrimp, lemon, garlic, shellfish […]

How to See King Penguins in Chile

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

I recently made a spur of the moment trip to Chile when I found myself with some unexpected free time. One of my best friends had just moved to Santiago so of course I had to visit!  She had to work a few days while I was there and while looking for things to do I made the crazy decision to fly down to Patagonia and see some penguins. When Penguins are an option, you always should take it, in my humble opinion.  Here’s how you can see penguins in Chile, specifically, the king penguins of Tierra Del Fuego. Are you excited? I will include some informative and hopefully interesting facts here, but mostly this is about adorable penguin pictures. I hope that’s ok with you! Read More:  Street Art in Valparaiso Chile Basics Tierra Del Fuego is an island in the south of Chile and Argentina, part of the Patagonia region. The two countries share this island almost 50/50. Language Spanish Currency Chilean Peso (100 USD is 60,000 Pesos).  Be aware that 60,000 pesos will often be written like this:  CLP $60.000 How to Get There Flying to Punta Arenas is the quickest way. It is a 3 hour and 25 minute trip and the cost ranges from $250 to $300. It is possible to drive if you have oodles of time and want to explore the country by car. Punta Arenas (the “starting point” for penguin trips) is 3000 km from Santiago. This would take several days by car. I did a tour that started from Punta Arenas. This is a full day tour from 0730 to 2100. It is possible to do on your own if you have a car. You have to drive from Punta Arenas to Tres Puntas where you will take the ferry across the Magellan Straits to the island of Tierra Del Fuego. Once there you will drive about 2 hours to get to the Parque de Pinguino Rey (Park of the King Penguins). *** This tour does not go on Mondays*** This is the exact tour I did with a company called Denomades. The tour costs 55,000 Pesos which is $91 USD. Not included is lunch, entry ticket to park (CLP$ 12.000) nor entry ticket to the museum (CLP$ 1.000), which must be paid in cash.  I found them easy to work with and they picked me up at my hostel. Tierra Del Fuego Full Day King Penguin Tour. The Tour Like most tours, you will end up making lots of stops to break up the day and some of these will not be that interesting. What I liked about this tour was that it was a relatively small group and there were lots of opportunities to eat and buy snacks (something I find important!).  I didn’t like that it returned much later than stated and some of the break stops were way too long. If you don’t have time to have a good breakfast before leaving, don’t worry because you can buy food and coffee on the ferry. Here is the route: After hotel pickup early in the morning, there is an hour drive to the terminal in Tres Puentes where you take the  2 hours 15-minute ferry ride to Tierra Del Fuego island. The arrival point is Chilota Bay and from there they drive you to Porvenir, where there is lunch at a restaurant and a visit to the Fernando Cordero Ruesque Museum. Porvenir is a sleepy cute little seaside town. Here you learn about the indigenous people, the Tehuelche, who once lived in Patagonia. They were here long before the Portuguese explorer Magellan who “discovered” these lands. Fun Fact:  Tierra del Fuego translates to “Land of Fire”.  When Magellan arrived by ship, he noted the native people burning fires around the coast of the island. This is where the odd name comes from. I would have named it Tierra del Frio (Land of Cold) We took a walk around the town and enjoyed some random street art. The Penguins. Finally! After lunch, there is a 110 km drive to get to the Pinguino Rey Park. (If you haven’t learned how to say “King Penguin” by now in Spanish…please learn!)  This is obviously the highlight of the day and you stay here 1 hour. It is the perfect amount of time to see them because longer than that and you may turn into an icicle! When you arrive you have to sign in at the office and pay. They do take credit cards here if you don’t have cash. A park ranger gives you a brief introduction about the park and the penguins. This is a privately owned facility dedicated to conservation and research of the king penguins. It is important to note that you must remain 15 meters (45 feet) away from the penguins. I highly recommend bringing binoculars and a good zoom lens. There are magnifying viewer devices (anyone know what to call those?) to look more closely. They are so sharp that you can actually see the fine fur of the penguins. This shot was taken with 100 mm zoom (and then cropped a bit) This one with 200 mm of zoom and then cropped a lot. I think a 300 mm zoom minimum would be ideal here. This sort of gives you a perspective of the distance. I heard some people grumbling about this but I’m ok with it if that’s what will protect the penguins. The penguins are really fun to watch. They are curious and basically stare at the humans. I was surprised by how loud they were. Their adorable sounds were audible even at a distance. You have to see a video just to appreciate their funny little walks. I thought they had swag, like tiny gangsters. Fun Fact:  King Penguins are the second largest species of penguin, the emperor penguin being the largest. They are around 90 cms(35 inches) in height and they weigh between 11 and 16 kgs (24 – 35 lbs) This grouping was having some beach time. Are you as in love with them as I am? The Journey Back After that, we drove north to visit the Cerro Sombrero camp, where oil was discovered in the area and now the project is run by the United States government, of course. We then had another ferry ride, a short one where we stayed in the van. Driving back to Punta Arenas took us by the Estancia San Gregorio. This is kind of a ghost town (that’s what I call it…it is officially a “monument”). San Gregorio was settled in the late 1800’s by European immigrants from Spain, England and Croatia. The community was mainly industrial but self-sufficient with its own dock and railroad. The sheep production of wool, tallow, meat and leather, was for almost a century the main economic resource of the region. There is a wreck of a 19th-century cargo ship to check out. By the time we got here it was already close to 2100. The sun was just setting and the lighting was beautiful. How to Prepare Bring WARM clothes. Even in “summer” it is really COLD!  Summer is December, January and February. I went in November which was right before the height of the season. It rained part of the day and when the sun came out it was windy as hell! I basically dressed as if I was going skiing. Here are the items that I wore. Ironically most of them were Patagonia brand (not planned I swear!). Waterproof insulated jacket with hood Fleece Base layer Hat Water resistant trekking pants I cannot find a photo other than me in them above. You can purchase them here: Patagonia Women’s Trekking Pants Also you need gloves, a scarf or gator and consider thermal leggings. I did not have thermal leggings but I wished that I did! More Penguins! If you want to see another species of penguins here in Patagonia you can do a half-day tour with the same company to see the Magellanic Penguins on Magdalena Island. I had this booked for the following day but it was canceled because of weather. I literally almost cried because I had flown all the way from Santiago to Patagonia for only 3 days to see lots of penguins and really didn’t have time to do anything else such as visit Torres Del Paine national park. Lesson learned to plan better in the future and have extra days to allow for this nonsense. Seriously, the weather looked perfect to me! Can you tell I’m still peeved? Oh well…I’ll definitely be back because I also want to hike in Torres del Paine! So much to do in Chile. Stay tuned for more posts from my trip to Chile!  Read More: Wine Tasting in the Casablanca Valley Have you ever seen penguins anywhere in the world? Tell me in the comments! Pin it!

HANOI STREET FOOD - LOCAL FOOD - HANOI CUISINE


Vietnam Travel & Cruise

Discover Hanoi’s cuisine! We start our Street food walking tour from Hanoi’s largest covered market, Dong Xuan from 17.00 PM. Your expert English-speaking local guide will give you an insight into the intricacies and traditions of Vietnamese food culture including details on ingredients and historical backgrounds of popular northern dishes. We eat as we go, trying seasonal fruits and sampling some tasty snack from a street cart. Banh cuon – If the French has this famous delicious crepe made of wheat, egg and dairy products; Vietnamese and particularly Hanoian is proud of their steamed crepe from rice flour and water. A savoury meal, the inside stuffing contains ground pork, wood-ear and seasoning. Most street chefs make the dish right at door so look for a place that steams are coming up high. Banh cuon is served with nuoc mam, a mixture of fish sauce, sugar and lime. Bun rieu cua – Freshwater crabs flavor this tangy tomato soup that’s made with round rice vermicelli and topped with pounded crabmeat, deep-fried tofu and, often, congealed blood. An odoriferous purple shrimp paste is offered on the side -it tastes delicious. Chilies and fresh herbs are the finishing touches for a complete one-dish meal. Pho – or rice noodle soup- is omnipresent in Hanoi, appearing anywhere from street vendors to high end restaurant chain Pho 24 This universally famous food is best enjoyed in Hanoi, where it was “invented” in the early 20th century. Some is served with chicken and some with beef. Each type of meat entails a variety of sub-dish, using from beef tenderloin to beef brisket, chicken wing to chicken thigh. You can choose among three light dinner dishes, from the extremely popular “Phở” (Noodle soup), “Bún chả” (grilled pork vermicelli soup) and lastly, our personal favorite “Bún Bò” (Beef rice vermicelli soup). In the end, the guide will take you to Ta Hien street where is one of the hot spots for beer, sitting at a street corner in Hanoi old quarter with a beer glass.

16 of the World’s Most Colorful Places

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

Let’s face it. We like colorful things. We are attracted to them the same way children scream for brightly colored candy at the grocery store. Maybe without the screaming. This is why food color like red #5 and yellow #6 exists and is perhaps giving us cancer. It’s just biology…or something.  Our eyes are drawn to bright pretty things and colorful places are no exception. I’ve been a lucky lady and have recently traveled to many places that resembled a candyland.  Consider me your color crack dealer as I take you to the world’s most colorful places. 1.  Portugal I had a hard time narrowing it down to only one city so I’m going to just give Portugal one big shout out as a collectively colorful country. Lisbon, Porto and Sintra are 3 places that should be on your color radar. Your “color-dar”, if you will. Tee-hee. Porto Lisbon Sintra Like most super cool castles, this one was built by a crazy king and for one am happy that he let his freak flag fly. I mean, who decides to make a red, yellow and pastel blue castle if they’re not slightly nuts eccentric? Portugal also happens to be a place that has been underrated in Europe for years. It is less expensive than much of western Europe and enjoys warm weather for more months. The secret is getting out, so go sooner rather than later! Read More:  5 Days in Portugal #2  Burano, Italy I know anyone with an Instagram account has seen a picture of this place and maybe drooled slightly. This island is a photographer’s paradise. In fact, there is little else to do here. There is one commercial street with restaurants, cafes and cute tourist shops, but mostly people simply walk around and gawk.  It is a nice escape half-day trip from Venice. I recommend going as early as possible to beat the crowds of googly-eyed tourists entranced by the rainbow of color (I was one of them btw). Note of caution…stand a few feet in front of people’s homes if you can. People do live here, although it’s easy to believe this kaleidoscope of a place was built just for our enjoyment! #3  Valparaiso, Chile Ok.  This place. Wow! I have never been as impressed by street art. It is EVERYWHERE. The city is a big free museum. Located on the coast less than 2 hours from Santiago, this is a must-see for anyone visiting Chile who loves art, color and fun happy vibes! Happily overdosing on art and color over here. Better than the things I usually overdose on…chocolate, wine, Netflix, Justin Trudeau pics. Oops there I go over-sharing again. Btw…watch my stories for adorable penguins in Patagonia! My posts are a few days behind as usual but stories always new! A post shared by Cherene (@wanderingredheadcher) on Nov 15, 2017 at 4:44am PST   Read More: Street Art in Valparaiso, Chile #4  Marrakech, Morocco Morocco seems to be having a resurgence in popularity. Instead of the 1970’s hippie trail, now there is the “Instagram Trail”. Photographers can’t get enough of the mosaic tiles, colorful markets and exotic flavor. Not to mention, Marrakech is known as the “Rose City” with much of the old city painted this soft pink color. Who can resist that? I barely know what any of this stuff is, but it was pretty and I definitely bought some. One of these crystal looking things may have been for my sinuses. They are really good salespeople! This type of tile is called zellij. The geometric shapes with Arabic calligraphy is a type of Islamic art and used commonly in Moroccan architecture. It is mind-numbingly intricate and spectacular. The photo below is from Majorelle Gardens, designed by Yves Saint Laurent. Read More: Guide to Marrakech #5 Colmar, France I hardly believe this is a real place, even when I look at my own photos! I felt the same way in person as I roamed around looking at the quaint pastel half-timbered houses with a dopey smile on my face. Colmar is in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France on the border of Germany. The whole region is simply adorable and you find yourself waiting for Belle, Gaston, the seven dwarfs, or any number of fairytale characters to stroll by. Read More:  Walk Through a Fairytale in Strasbourg and Colmar #6  Guatape, Colombia I haven’t yet been to Colombia, but it is one of the top places on my bucket list for many reasons including places like this. This Andean resort town is close to Medellin.  I had placed Colombia on my top places to go in 2017 in a collaborative post with other bloggers.  Give it a read if you haven’t yet! Travel Inspiration: Places to Visit in 2017   #7  Cinque Terre, Italy Another very popular destination, Cinque Terre will fulfill many colorful fantasies. It’s more than just a pretty face. There is excellent hiking here and really good food. Despite becoming alarmingly crowded, they’ve managed to not let the food quality go down like some touristy places (I’m looking at you Venice!). The villages look like glittering gems in the sea. Cinque Terre is technically 5 different villages and some would include nearby Portovenere as the 6th village.  Portovenere (pictured below) is a great day trip and can be reached by ferry or hiking. It happens to be way less crowded here as well. This is the village of Riomaggiore. It’s almost like a 5-year-old girl was allowed to design this entire village with every shade of pink that she could imagine. Read More:  Best Photo Spots in Cinque Terre #8  Sighisoara, Romania I haven’t yet written about Romania, but I plan to soon because it truly surprised me and I absolutely loved it. I was expecting a more run down, old communist Eastern European feel (just being honest), but instead, I got charming pastel villages galore! Score: Romania 1  Cherene -3 This was only one of many cute towns that I visited. Sibiu and Brasov deserve a mention as well. #9  Miami, Florida I couldn’t possibly write about colorful places without mentioning my home of 15 years, Miami! From the art deco district to the design district, there is plenty of color to go around.  You can’t throw a stone on Instagram without hitting a picture of the Wynwood art district. I remember when Wynwood was a place you only visited with a police escort and a prayer. Things have certainly changed! Read More:  Local’s Guide To Miami #10  Copenhagen, Denmark Copenhagen is a fun city full of character. And bikes. Tons of bikes. The canals are lined with colorful homes, particularly in the famous Nyhaven area pictured below. Interestingly, Denmark is high on the list of happiest places. I guess color is good for the soul? I could hang here all day! Someone needs to invent a floating bar!🤗🍸 A post shared by Cherene (@wanderingredheadcher) on Aug 20, 2016 at 9:23am PDT #11  Wroclaw, Poland I am really sad that I haven’t yet visited Poland because I hear nothing but good things about it. Just look at this place! So grand and stately, yet colorful AF! That’s hard to pull off if you’re not a drag queen. Well played Wroclaw! #12  Rovinj, Croatia I definitely left my heart in this perfect little seaside town in the Istria region of Croatia, and you can see why. Beyond the beautiful exterior is a heart of gold. The people are just as charming as the buildings. I came here to decompress after a particularly crazy Italy visit and I almost didn’t leave. It was refreshingly relaxing with clear warm Adriatic waters to swim in and yummy Croatian wine to drink as you roam the pastel cobblestoned streets of the old city stopping in cute stores to sample truffled this and lavender that. #13 Bali, Indonesia This is one colorful little island. Where else can you see a rainbow of umbrellas and bean bags on the beach, bright fringy umbrellas in the streets, pretty floral offerings to the gods on the ground and brightly colored fabrics adorning the Hindu statues? Read More:  20 Photos of My Best Things to do in Bali #14 Stockholm, Sweden Stockholm is pretty, elegant and one of those places you feel you need more time to visit because each island has its own character to discover. The Gamla Stan area is perhaps the most historic and colorful as well as most popular with tourists. It is like a pedestrian-friendly outdoor museum with winding cobblestone streets and beautiful buildings. This is Stockholm’s oldest square, Stortorget. It is the historic heart of Stockholm and located in the old town of Gamla Stan. #15  Salvador, Brazil Ah, Brazil. Home of some of the most joyous people I’ve ever seen. Brazil is a delightful mix of African, European and Latin American culture and in some cities, the buildings are as colorful as its people. Salvador da Bahia, is one of those cities. Once the capital of Portugal’s famed new world colony, it is now the Afro-Brazilian heart of the country. The descendants of African slaves have preserved their heritage here better than anywhere else in the world. #16  Hoi An, Vietnam Hoi An is on Vietnam’s central coast. The architecture reflects its interesting melting-pot history and is a mix of eras and styles with wooden Chinese shophouses and temples, as well as French colonial buildings and ornate Vietnamese tube houses. One of the most famous sites is the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge with its pagoda. It’s easy to see why this charming town is a UNESCO world heritage site.  I personally was delighted by all the colorful silk lanterns adorning all the streets. Hope you could handle all that color! What are some of the world’s most colorful places that I missed? Where else do I need to go to get my color fix? Tell me in the comments! Pin It!

Hanoi Coffee | About The Best Coffee in Vietnam

by Lê Hoàng @ Hanoi Free Local Tours

Hanoi Coffee Culture I, Hanoi Coffee Culture I.1 Overview of Coffee in Hanoi The coffee was first imported to Hanoi by French during their first colonial exploitation here. With the formation of the French Quarter where the French immigrated, they brought their favorite drink, and Hanoi coffee began to take its first steps on the streets around Hoan Kiem Lake. 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 […]

If You’re Going To Eat Tide Pods, At Least Eat Edible Ones

Overdose on Street Art in Valparaiso Chile (Bonus: Good Eats)

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

Valparaiso, Chile is one of the most colorful cities I have ever seen. The entire city is basically an open-air museum with colorful homes, murals, cute cafes, painted stairs, mosaics and all kinds of artistic eye candy to keep your senses occupied. Less than 2 hours drive from Santiago, this bohemian hotspot can be visited in just a weekend if you are short on time. I will tell you where to eat, play and find street art in Valparaiso. About “Valpo” Greater Valparaíso is the second largest metropolitan area in the country.  In the second half of the 19th century, Valparaíso served as a major stopover for ships traveling between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans by crossing the Straits of Magellan. Valparaiso attracted many European immigrants during its golden age when international sailors called it “The Jewel of the Pacific” or “Little San Francisco”. Art, particularly graffiti, has had an interesting evolution in Valpo. Graffiti became a regular form of protest under the oppressive regime of the dictator Augusto Pinochet in the 1970s. At that time it was subversive and anonymous. Chile eventually became more democratic but the graffiti continued to thrive. The government finally decided to make it legal but with regulation. Artists are permitted to create what they wish whether it be to express social criticism or simply showcase their artistic vision as long as they contribute to the urban scene. There are competitions where the winner is given the equipment necessary to paint over the bricks or concrete. Pretty cool huh? Random Cool Facts about Valparaiso Latin America’s oldest stock exchange is here It has the continent’s first volunteer fire department Chile’s first public library is here  El Mercurio de Valparaiso is the oldest Spanish language newspaper in continuous publication in the world Basics Location:  Coast of Chile, northwest of Santiago Language:  Spanish (English is spoken minimally in Chile but more so in touristy areas) Currency:  Chilean Peso (1000 pesos = 1.57 USD). Easy to find ATMs.  Credit cards are widely accepted except for street vendors. Where to Find the Art There are 9 cerros or hills. Many have funiculars to reach the top where there are great views. They aren’t too bad to walk up if you want to get some exercise. In one day I was able to check out three of them, Cerro Bellavista, Cerro Concepcion and Cerro Alegre. The art is literally everywhere. Buildings are painted with bright fun colors and there are murals in all kinds of unexpected places. I will point out a few of my faves as well as some famous ones, but please enjoy discovering these and more for yourself! There are hundreds more all around the city. I would love to have a week to wander around gawking at art. The Piano Stairs The musical steps are found (quite appropriately) on Beethoven Street. I don’t know the history of this one but I love the creativity. In Cerro Concepcion This one is on Beethoven street, near the Piano Steps. This one really captured the essence of Valpo. I wish I could tell you who painted these! If anyone knows please share! This one is on Almirante Montt as it meets Beethoven Street.  Who can resist posing with all that color! The Allende Mural Salvador Allende was the president of Chile from 1970 to 1973, but involved in politics many years prior. He was ousted and killed (some say suicide) in a controversial coup d’etat by his own military and the American CIA who opposed his leftist policies. This paved the way for the brutal dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet that lasted until 1990, ending decades of democratic rule. Allende is a hero to many and is proudly represented in this beautiful mural on Almirante Montt. This street is very beautiful with plenty of other buildings and murals worth seeing. Check out the quirky shop called Bazar PutaMadre (interesting choice of name for those who understand Spanish). Artsy Colorful Stairs I don’t know what the official name for this staircase is but you must see it. It is more than just a staircase. The stairs themselves have mosaic tile and bright colors but along the stairs are various buildings with graffiti, murals, flowers and the whole combination comes together in a unique, pretty and gritty way. Where to Find:  Hector Calvo Street. This area was part of the Museo de Cielo Abierto which I explain later. The photo below was some random little area along Yerbas Buenas The “We Are Not Hippies We Are Happies” Sign by Art + Believe This is probably the most visited site in Valparaiso. I don’t think your visit counts if you didn’t go. Painted on two steps by the UK art collective Art + Believe, this can be found on Cerro Alegre. They say that these words became the mantra of their travels. “The words originate from a very kind Chilean man who took us in whilst in Valparaiso. It captures the color, vibrancy and the philosophy of the Chilean people today, now free of dictatorship.” Where to Find: Templeman 672 Just down the hill from the Happies sign are tons of murals including another beautiful one by Art + Believe. Tower on Fire I sort of stumbled upon this one, then found out it was famous. It’s enormous and hard to miss if you are strolling along Paseo Dimalow on Cerro Alegre. The street itself is full of outdoor street vendors and artists, but there is a dramatic overlook where you can see part of the city as it meets the sea. Just look to the right of the mural and find this awesome little terrace bar! Best view in town right there! Where to Find: Dimalow 166 Museo a Cielo Abierto (Open Sky Museum) This little area is on Cerro Bellavista and is kind of an art walk. It traverses through different murals, viewpoints and there are plenty of cool things to see. I certainly couldn’t resist these mosaic tiled benches. Yellow is my favorite color also. No brainer! You can find all these places and more on the map below: Getting There Several bus companies go directly from Santiago to Valparaiso. The trip will cost 3300 to 5000 pesos each way (roughly $5 to $8 USD). A few bus companies that are good include Pullman, Condor or Turbus. The trip takes 1 hour 45 minutes. Of course traffic plays a factor in this! Once there you can see most things on foot or call an Uber. There is a local bus system called the V-line. Read More: Wine Tasting in the Casablanca Valley of Chile Where to Eat Ok let’s discuss the important stuff…food and drink. You will be spoiled for choice here. Walking along Cerro Concepcion or Paseo Dimalow in Cerro Alegre offers many cafes, restaurants and bars. Here are a few I can vouch for. Cafe Turi Upscale Chilean cuisine with an emphasis on seafood. There is a beautiful terrace and perfect for sunset. Try the Pastel de Jaiba (crab cooked in a yummy traditional way), the Congrito (fried eel) or the Squid Ink Lasagna. Be prepared for a richly satisfying meal! Even the dessert is art itself. Check out the chocolate funicular with the swirly spun sugar wind. I thought it looked like Trump’s hair but oh well. It was all scrumptious. Templeman 147   Taulat Tapas Spanish Tapas Bar and Restaurant with a nice terrace overlooking Paseo Dimalow in Cerro Alegre. Jose Grosse 268 El Desayunador    Like the name suggests, this is the perfect place for breakfast or brunch. Beware of the pancake (panqueque)  as it is actual CAKE. A huge piece. With layers and frosting and all that. It’s not even pretending to be healthy breakfast food.  Apparently cake for breakfast is a thing here and I am down with it! Almirante Montt 399 Hotzenplatz There’s a sizeable German community in Chile and this cute authentic place on Cerro Bellavista is a great place for some traditional Kasespaetzle (dumplings with cheese and caramelized onions). To the right of the restaurant is also one of the entrances to the Museo a Cielo Abierto. Hector Calvo 331 Bar The Clinic Such a great name for a bar. The Clinic. It is kind of medicinal and therapeutic if you ask me. This place is in Cerro Concepcion and has great Chilean cocktails and an outdoor terrace. What more do you need? Read more for info on bars in Valparaiso Where to Stay Hotel Brighton The views here were spectacular. Breakfast is included and the location is perfect, right at the top of Cerro Conception. The staff were also very friendly. * I was not sponsored, just really liked it! Ok you’re on to me. I only picked it because it was yellow! Book your hotel here: Booking.com   If you decide to visit Valpo, I would recommend at least 2 days and maybe one more day to visit Vino Del Mar nearby. I didn’t have time on this trip but will definitely be back! Where is your favorite place for street art? Have you been to Valpo? What was your favorite piece?   Pin it

How to Fly Cathay Pacific First Class With Miles

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

It’s been a long time dream of mine to have that ultimate luxury first-class experience. Many airlines these days are offering a fabulous first class product. Cathay Pacific First Class is considered among the best. When I found myself with the opportunity to fly from Miami to Singapore first class on this airline USING MILES, you know I jumped at the opportunity. Like literally, I jumped up and down on my bed for at least ten minutes. I bet you are wondering how I managed this?  I will spill my secrets for how I got to fly Cathay Pacific First Class and Business Class using miles.   Using Airline Points I am an avid American Airlines loyalist and have been using their Advantage mileage program for ages. In my efforts to build massive amounts of miles, I almost exclusively use credit cards associated with Advantage such as the CitiBank credit cards. Over the past few years, I have opened and closed a few different ones, but the one that really blasted me with those marvelous miles was the Citi Executive Card. At the time they offered a 75,000 mile bonus if you spent 7500 in the first 3 months. Right now the bonus is only 50,000 miles and at one point it was 100,000 miles so keep an eye on it! At the time of publication, there is an amazing limited time offer to get 60,000 miles bonus on the Citibank Platinum Card. This card has an annual fee of $95 that is waived the first year. If I didn’t already have this card I would jump on it!. The bonus is usually only 30,000 miles! You have to spend $3000 in 3 months to get this bonus. Do it people! Spending the money necessary was not so hard to do, so I got my awesome bonus, kept the card for the first year while the interest was still zero, then canceled it. I liked the card, but I didn’t want to continue to pay the $450 annual fee. It was worth it in the first year because I had Admirals Club membership, and 10,000 miles applied toward elite status. Also that $450 paid for itself when I landed an award seat worth over $15,000!  Getting the credit card award is only one of the strategies I use to obtain miles but that 75,000 was all I needed for my ultimate goal…to fly long distance in some pimpin’ first cast cabin. For more details on how to accrue miles and spend enough money to get the bonus, read more: Beginner’s Guide to Flying Free How to Actually Book Once You Have The Miles When you book with an American Airlines partner (with the exception of British Airlines), you cannot do this online and must call. Yes, you have to actually talk with someone in the Advantage program and they are actually quite nice. An alternative that sometimes works is to look on the British Airways website and see what’s available for the route you want on their partners (Cathay Pacific being one of these). If you see an award seat available, good chances that you can get it by calling American. This is a clumsy process and I wish American would allow you to book with partners more seamlessly. Not to mention that I had seen a Qatar Airways award seat available but when I called to book, it was not. I knew that several of their luxury partners flew to Singapore so I called to see what was available. I was very flexible with my dates, which helps, and I called almost a year in advance. I’ve heard that to secure these ultra hard to get seats, you need to book either super early or last minute to have the best chance.  What they offer truly changes day by day, one of the great mysteries of the airline industry. I booked this flight in March of 2016 for Feb of 2017. Yes, I’m that crazy. I’m like a dog with a bone once I get an idea in my head. I simply called the Advantage number (it’s on my speed dial, right after my parents) and told them where I wanted to go and that I wanted first class. They gave me the choice of Cathay Pacific, an airline I knew to be fabulous, so I said yes, yes, yes!!! My Flight I happened to get a flight from Miami to Chicago(this domestic leg on AA), Chicago to Hong Kong (Cathay’s Hub) and then Hong Kong to Singapore. For this review, I will focus on the Chicago to Hong Kong leg since that’s the most significant one. This flight is over 15 hours, one of the longest flights one can take and that give you ample time to enjoy this airline. The special treatment starts at check-in. The first class check-in has virtually no line and your luggage is tagged with priority tags so that it will be removed first. These two things alone thrill me. You also are the first to board the airline. When you board, an attendant walks you to your seat which is to the left of the entrance, in the front of the plane. It is delightfully quiet with no other boarding passengers walking past.  The Cathay Pacific Boeing 777-300 has 6 first class seats, one of the smallest in existence. It is a 1-1-1 formation and feels incredibly private and peaceful.  I had seat 1A by the window. The “Suite” It is a huge seat with 3 windows which allows you plenty of light should you want it. The suite has no door but still feels enclosed and private. There is a tiny closet to hang a jacket and a large cabinet to place any loose items you want on hand. There is an ottoman opposite the main seat which can be converted into a seat for a companion. They can even extend the dining table to accommodate said companion (if you have one) for meals. Otherwise, you just put your legs there. Complimentary bose headsets are available until landing. There is a 15-inch television screen with a touchscreen entertainment system which can be adjusted after takeoff but is easy to watch in the current position. You are introduced to your personal attendant for the flight.  I had a lovely Filipina woman who I adored. She was very happy to take my photo doing ridiculous things that I probably should have been embarrassed about. She also encouraged me to drink too much wine! You are offered Krug champagne before take-off and given a little introduction to the menu. They provide a care package (my words, not theirs) with toiletries, an eye mask, ear plugs, toothbrush, slippers and Aesop products. You are also provided with very well-made pajamas of the softest material ever. Plus you can kee them! Lunch I kind of wanted to order everything but alas, I am a tiny person. There are both western and Chinese meals available. The caviar starter, served properly in its tin with blinis and creme fraiche is something you want to stay awake for. For lunch, I chose the spiced black cod with coconut lentils If you still have room between the main course and dessert you can get a cheese course. I had an impromptu flight of wine with mine. As I do. My attendant seemed to be trying to get me drunk. She kept offering me more wine when I was clearly inebriated already. I couldn’t even finish the glass I had in front of me, but she insisted I have to try the French Chablis. How does one say no? She also refused to let me skip dessert. It’s like traveling with your ethnic grandmother. Of course, I made room for the orange curd souffle and dulce de leche ice cream. The Bed Needless to say, after the huge meal and all the booze, I was ready for sleep and those pajamas were calling my name.  I went to the lavatory to change while they prepared my bed. You actually get a real pillow and warm fluffy blanket. Of course I took a photo. How could I not? Your seat transforms into one of the widest fully flat beds in the sky, with a thick mattress and 500-thread-count cotton duvets, pillows, and cushions. Your sleepsuit, eyeshade, and soft slippers, tailored with touches of modern Chinese styling, are made with 100% organic cotton and designed by PYE, a quality Hong Kong brand. The women’s toiletry case include a variety of creams, including hand balm, facial hydrating cream and lip balm. I  slept for 8 hours (I try to get on the schedule of the place I’m going before I get there…if that makes sense).  When I woke it was time for”dinner” (it felt like it should have been breakfast but because of the time change, I guess it was dinner time). I had the chicken with the mushroom ragout. The chocolate pralines came in a cute little box kind of like a special gift. The Hong Kong Lounge The first class service doesn’t end with the flight. If you are lucky enough to have a layover in Hong Kong, Cathay’s hub, you have access to a world-class lounge. This is available for both first and business class customers but amenities are different for each. There is a noodle bar and for first class only…a champagne bar. As if that isn’t exciting enough (I can never have too much champagne), they have shower cabanas. They are spacious and have those delightful Aesop products. There’s nothing better than feeling refreshed after a long flight and then chillaxing with champagne while waiting for another flight. At this point I had no idea what time or day it was after over 15 hours of travel and a 12 hours time difference. Nor did I care, since I was having such a great time! My next flight was between HK and Singapore and was really nice, but sadly undocumented, probably because I was sleeping. Cathay Pacific Business Class On the way back from Hong Kong to Miami,  I was only able to get Business Class. I say that like it’s a bad thing but it was pretty darn awesome as well. It ended up “costing” me the same amount of miles…actually a bit more at 70,000 miles. Each way the fees were around $30. Again, this is one of the mysteries of the airline industry. I don’t understand how I only needed 67,500 miles for first class. If anyone knows, please enlighten me! It was interesting to be able to compare. One marked difference was upon entrance to the airline since you don’t get to go to the quiet private front of the plane but instead turn to the right like everybody else. Am I doing a good job of sounding obnoxiously snobby?  I hope you know me by now people. I’m poking fun at this whole experience but I just wanted to point out the differences. The cabin was very large and very empty! Clearly, there is great availability last minute for these seats! The configuration in this cabin is 1-2-1. The window seat is clearly the better option if you are travling alone. If you are with a companion the middle seat is nice so you can converse with a partner but it is still private enough that it’s not awkward with a stranger. The remote control, lights and bose headsets in the cabin are pretty much the same as in first class. The seat is notably smaller but still comfortable. They also provide a toiletry kit but a smaller one with a different brand of products. Meals The menu is slightly less gourmet than in first class, but still pretty swanky. I had the smoked halibut and roasted pumpkin as a starter, followed by the pasta with zucchini sauce. It was delicious. You are very well fed on this flight with three courses plus dessert. I can’t believe I was hungry enough to have a snack. Maybe it was because I was forcing myself to stay awake and watch movies so that I could more easily adjust to the time back in the United States…maybe it was because I just wanted to eat everything they had? English Tea was available as a snack. I can’t resist those little sandwiches and scones. After crying my eyes out watching every sad dramatic Oscar contender movie, I passed out from the carb coma and emotional exhaustion. Eventually, it was time for “breakfast” (I use this term loosely because with the time change and long flight, I have no idea what meal I’m eating). I decided to try the Chinese breakfast. While it was fun to have dim sum on a plane, I have definitely had better. Transfer to American Airlines Business Class Upon entry to the United States in Los Angeles,  I transferred to a domestic American Airlines flight back to Miami. Sadly they had to give me economy since I made a last minute date change. However, when I checked in I explained to them that I had flown business the entire way until now and could they please upgrade me if there was space. I must have looked tired and pathetic because they were extremely nice about this and upgraded me right away! The American Airlines 777 is the same plane I had just been on with a different paint job. The service wasn’t quite a nice as with Cathay but the business seat was exactly the same. I found myself right at home. LA to MIA is 5 hours so I was happy to be in comfort, especially after 2 days of travel! I can honestly say I didn’t want these flights to end. How amazing to lounge in comfort with endless amounts of movies, wine and food. I would fly every week if it was on this airline. I can’t say enough good things about Cathay Pacific now that I have flown First Class, Business and although I didn’t write about it, I had an excellent experience a few years ago flying economy. Definitely, make it a goal to use miles like I did and get this round trip luxury experience for under $60! At 67,500 miles for a one-way first class seat, this is one of the best deals in the airline industry! Pin it!

Honest Reviews: Huma Island Resort in the Philippines (aka Heaven)

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

There are many luxury hotels out there and although I haven’t stayed in all of them, I can tell you that many of them are not worth your money. This is not one of those. This place, in my opinion, was worth every penny and I will tell you (and show you) why. Keep in mind I was not sponsored. They had no idea I was a blogger, so this is as honest and real as it gets! Are you ready to virtually experience Huma Island Resort? How I Ended Up There Let me set the scene for you. I was at the end of 2 months of continuous travel in Southeast Asia. To afford to travel for this long, I did stay in budget places quite a bit, including hostels. I like to splurge every now and then and the end of my 3 weeks in the Philippines seemed like the perfect time. The place I was staying before wasn’t so hot and I wanted to get out as soon as possible. I called Huma Island and asked how early I could check in. They offered to send a van to pick me up at 0800 from my hotel. That works!  I was staying on a different part of Coron Island so I had an hour van ride to the boat dock. The next step was a 40-minute boat ride to the private island. The exuberance was practically jumping out of my soul by the time I got on this boat. Read More: Discover Palawan Checking In Upon arrival at the property on the island, there were several people waiting for me (yes…just me) at the dock. I was warmly welcomed and given a cool washcloth along with a welcome drink while my luggage was taken. I was escorted into the lobby where a group of employees played a ukelele and sang a welcome song. This was very cute but a little awkward because I’m not accustomed to having that many people greet me and make a big deal over me. I do appreciate their effort though, After I checked in and did all that formal stuff, a man in a golf cart drove me to my overwater villa, giving me a little tour of the property along the way. I could barely contain myself on this ride and was bouncing up and down like a toddler that needs the restroom. Everything was spectacular! When we finally arrived at my villa, he gave me a little tour and then left me to run around open-mouthed and giggling like an idiot. But First, Let Me Relax Sadly I don’t have photos of the room, but it was large with high ceilings and plush colorful decor.  The Nespresso coffee machine and the complimentary bottle of wine was a nice addition. The bathroom was spacious and equipped with every luxurious touch you can imagine including L’Occitane amenities. There was a separate toilet, huge bathtub and a rain shower. The private balcony has sweeping sea views, loungers, outdoor shower and my favorite part…the hot tub. The first thing I did was get in that hot tub and mentally plan the rest of my day. Next, I went to the dive shop. I didn’t feel like doing a dive because it would have taken most of the day, however, there is a plane wreck nearby that you can see. How cool is that? I’ve seen many shipwrecks but never a plane. This region had a lot of WW2 action, hence the planes and ships underwater. Instead, I settled on getting a paddle board and snorkel equipment. I was driven to the beachfront where I was the only person in the water at the time. Just call me the queen of the ocean. Snorkeling from my paddleboard was super fun and there were plenty of beautiful fish and coral. Here’s a little video about the experience: Pool Time After all that stressful activity (I could barely say that with a straight face), I hit the pool, complete with a big pink flamingo floaty. I ordered a few cocktails in a coconut and made friends with some random Canadians. At some point, I did a cooking class that they offered and enjoyed some delicious adobo chicken, a Filipino specialty. Eventually, I decided to hang in my room again and get ready for dinner. As I was walking back to the restaurant area trying to decide which one to eat in (they have many dining choices including a Lebanese restaurant, a seafood place, wine and cheese, and Italian), I passed some people doing archery. The hotel staff member running the show invited me to come give it a try. Why not? I only had half a bottle of wine in my room. What could go wrong? It turns out, I’m a natural. Watch out Katniss! The sunsets here are stunning, of course. Finally dinner. I chose the Lebanese restaurant called Al Fairuz, although I was skeptical about Lebanese food in the Philippines. Apparently the owners of the resort are from Qatar.  They know this food!. As a half Arab, I was extremely impressed with this meal. It wasn’t cheap, but that was to be expected at a place like this. It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye Sadly I had to leave early the next morning. They arranged the boat ride back to the mainland and then a ride to the airport. I truly loved every minute of my day there. This place made me ridiculously happy and I was uber impressed with the service from each and every person there. Well done Huma Island! I hope to be back. Interested in booking a room here?

This is at no extra cost to you and helps me to maintain this blog! A Few Tips You have a choice of overwater villas or beachfront. I think the overwater experience is fun but if you want to walk out your front door directly onto the beach, beachfront is the way to go. There are two sets of water villas, one is more west. I would recommend these so that you can better enjoy the sunset. There is a spa here but isn’t very big so make appointments as early as you can. Make sure you give yourself a full day at the minimum to enjoy this place and check out as late as you can on your last day. Would you stay here? Where was your favorite splurge hotel? Pin it!
