The sand-colored maze known as Yazd, Iran

by Eaman @ New York to Nomad

Mud-brick houses and narrow, ancient streets make up the beautiful, sand-colored city that is Yazd. And within these winding lanes is a city rich in history, one that’s frequented by foreigners and locals alike. Yazd is believed to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities of the world and is home to the largest … Continue reading »

Arrival in Vietnam

by Elize Tikmane @ Destinesia

  Our first city to visit in Vietnam was Can Tho. We would meet Stijn’s good friend Binh, whose family comes from Vietnam. We were to celebrate Lunar New Year together with him and his family. As Phnom Penh was very stressful, we decided to flee from there few days before Tet (the most important celebration in Vietnam). We wanted to do it with a boat on the Mekong. To find one is quite challenging, especially, if you are not interested in several day cruise, but rather the cheapest and fastest option available. We ended up with the one offered by our hostel in Phnom Penh. Originally we booked a boat + bus ride, but we ended up taking the boat up until our destination. But first things first. We had our nice Myanmar boat experience still in our head, so what we got, was merely ‘good enough’. There wasn’t…Continue Reading

8 reasons why La Rochelle is the perfect weekend getaway

Before I decided to buy my two-day ticket to La Rochelle, I only knew this city from images – not even from the recommendations or stories of friends. As those pictures had promised, I expected some nice French architecture and a beautiful port; the sea and a pretty city was all I had in mind. What I didn’t expect was to be as pleasantly surprised as I was by what […]

Top 5 Vietnamese Street Food Dishes You Must Try In Hoi An

Top 5 Vietnamese Street Food Dishes You Must Try In Hoi An


A Traveller's Journal

It’s arguable that Vietnam culture is divided into three distinct areas, the north, the centre and the south. None makes this more apparent than observing the country’s cuisine… Take for example the bare-bones pho served in Hanoi is vastly different than the sweeter and heavily garnished bowls served in Saigon. The same can be said …

Saigon after tet

by Elize Tikmane @ Destinesia

Big was my surprise when we were asked to take off our shoes at the doors of the bus. What is this? It is not polite to have our shoes on in the bus anymore? We were given plastic bags to put our shoes in. Once we got in the bus, it started to become clear why the shoes had to be off. It was a sort of sleeping bus. Eery passenger had a reclined seat. The legs could be completely stretch out, halfway into a capsule like construction, the back of the seat could be adjusted. There were 3 rows and 2 decks of seats. It was my first time in such a bus. It felt rather comfortable, spending a night in such a bus might work out well, as the legs can be stretched & the seat reclined. Few days back the traffic between Can Tho and Ho…Continue Reading

Your Ultimate Venice Bucket List

Venice has kind of always been on my bucket list, even though I don’t actually have one. It’s one of those cities I’ve always wanted to visit because it seems so otherworldly.

So when the time came and we started our road trip I just knew […]

The Romance of Hoi An

by Elize Tikmane @ slow food – Destinesia

If you have read any blog or guide about Vietnam, you know that you have to go to Hoi An. Or you might regret it the whole life. I am exaggerating of course… Though, do not wonder long, as there “might be no tomorrow” for Hoi An. We left the Slavic Nha Trang by train. We were to spend the night in hard sleeper (the first time we did not even know, that we had seats in “hard sleeper”). This time we had paid extra to sleep in the bottom level as there is slightly more space and it just easier to get out of it. But… Once we got on the train two women with infants had already taken our places. To put it nicely – I was upset. They were blinking their eyes and showing to their babies (like they did not know that they would be traveling…Continue Reading

Kep is very close to Kampot and technically can be done as a day trip from there or vice versa. I wanted to have some beach time, before we move to Vietnam. As Stijn did put his veto on Sihanouk ville, we decided to say few nights in Kep. Our chosen accommodation was Khmer Hands guest house located close to the Kep National Park and with a view to the sea from the terrace of their restaurant. It is not only a guest house, but also a training centre for locals, who want to work in tourism. They have their own school on the same property and most of the employees are graduates of it. There are also cooperating with the local Don Bosco School for when they need handy young men. We had our own bungalow again, but it was a serious upgrade.

Scooters weave their way along, tooting at whatever may find itself in the way. A balancing act that defies the laws of physics, the Hanoi people have mastered the art of piling themselves, spouses, babies and small children, as well as unfortunate chooks – likely to become the dish of the day – all onto one groaning contraption.

Russian invasion in Nha Trang

by Stijn @ Destinesia

Since we couldn’t go to Da Lat because of Tet, we ended up in Nha Trang. The city promotes itself as a coastal resort with a long white beach. This should have been enough to raise a few red flags before deciding to come here. But looking around, some photos seemed promising. We booked a relatively cheap place to stay, few blocks away from the beach, distant from the tourist center. And best – we did like that. We arrived early by train. Wanting to save a few dollars, we walked to our hotel [One of the first times we actually had a long walk with our heavy bags on our shoulders – E.T.). On the map, it wasn’t very far, only 1,2 kilometer to walk. We could do that easily. But even if the distance didn’t look that far, temperatures were rising quickly and with a heavy backpack, this…Continue Reading

Video of our “Islands of the Mekong” bicycle tour in Phnom Penh

by Stijn Swinnen @ Destinesia

As written in our previous article, The Chaos of Phnom Penh,  we did do a small bicycle tour organised by Grasshopper Adventures. Next to the many photos we had taken, I also had mounted a GoPro camera on the steering bar of the mountain bike. Though I little detail was forgotten: I forgot to charge the batteries beforehand so in the end I did only capture fragments of the tour. The nice thing about the Islands of the Mekong tour is the fact that most of the paths we followed are very small where no cars are running. As you will notice in the video, there are numerous times we crossed cow on the road. And we did drive through numerous plantations, fields and so on along the Mekong river. Add a few high-fives, playing children, monks collecting donations and you have a fair idea of how this tour looks like.…Continue Reading

The evening we met Binh, his sister and her friends we were immediately taken to his family. We meet his 91 year old great grandmother, countless aunties and uncles (they actually call them by numbers – aunty 2, uncle 5 etc) and few amazing kids. We were welcomed with an extremely tasty banh mi – a sandwich based on baguette, filled with veggies, meat, topped with sweet and spicy sauce.  The family is having their own sandwich stand in front of one of the family’s houses – it is a Vietnamese thing.

We filled up that gas tank of our rented scooter and left. As usual, we did not really plan our trip and we were counting on our trustworthy Google Maps on the iPhone. All we knew was there is the Bokor Hill Station and the Bokor Palace Hotel: abandoned buildings that you can find on every postcard in the region and there is one large waterfall. Probably the most exciting part of the trip was the road to the access the National Park: 32 kilometer long and winding road up in the mountains, endless turns and not a…Continue Reading

It’s about the people, not the sights: Lessons learned in Rasht and the stunning 1000-year-old village of Masuleh

People told me not to bother seeing Rasht, the largest city in the Caspian Sea region. They said there weren’t many historical sights and beautiful landscapes within the city of Rasht. I was told to use the city as a staging point to visit Masuleh Village and the rest of the Caspian Sea region and … Continue reading »

Giving up on and discovering Hue

by Elize Tikmane @ Destinesia

I do not really remember why we decided to stop in Hue. Part of it is UNESCO World Heritage Site, but that was about all we knew. After Siem Reap temples old castles start to lose their significance, especially if you are trying to do it all in one go. But back on Hue, of course, we wanted to experience the train ride from Da Nang to Hue. In travel descriptions and blogs that always comes up as something breath taking and must-experience. In addition, we figured, that it might be too early to go to Hanoi (we were about 10 days away from going home, home – home), so why not stop in Hue… We took a train in early afternoon from Da Nang train station. I first had a stop at a very local coffee “shop” to get my take-away iced coffee with milk (Ca Phe Sua Da)…Continue Reading

The Doomed Independence Movement of Easter Island

Easter Island barely juts out of the ocean over 2,000 miles away from the nearest continent.

How to do 2.5k kilometers by car? Slow and easy does the trick

Silly ideas, like driving more than 2.5 thousand kilometers in one stretch, are definitely not our thing anymore. That’s why we split this year’s (already third!) journey to Motril into five days.

The Romance of Hoi An

by Elize Tikmane @ Destinesia

If you have read any blog or guide about Vietnam, you know that you have to go to Hoi An. Or you might regret it the whole life. I am exaggerating of course… Though, do not wonder long, as there “might be no tomorrow” for Hoi An. We left the Slavic Nha Trang by train. We were to spend the night in hard sleeper (the first time we did not even know, that we had seats in “hard sleeper”). This time we had paid extra to sleep in the bottom level as there is slightly more space and it just easier to get out of it. But… Once we got on the train two women with infants had already taken our places. To put it nicely – I was upset. They were blinking their eyes and showing to their babies (like they did not know that they would be traveling…Continue Reading

The chaos of Phnom Penh

by Elize Tikmane @ Destinesia

I guess entering any capital by bus on an afternoon is a disaster. Once again we suffered from Phnom Penh’s traffic. Arriving in the bus station 2 hours later than expected. We wanted to explore the capital of Cambodia before going to Vietnam. It had been a while since we shared our sleeping space with some one else. Maybe we were ready to stay in a hostel again. We had booked a double bed in a two double bed hostel room, but Stijn had somehow missed the fact that there would be us sleeping in one double bed and some one (or two) else in the other double bed. Our arrival in the hostel was a big surprise for him. It took a while to cope with it. We stayed in Aura thematic Hostel that is located just at the back wall of the Phnom Penh palace. Clean, well equipped…Continue Reading
