Climbing mountains

Lately, we’ve been trying to figure out what will come out this little adventure of ours. To sum it up, after you quit your job, give away most of your stuff and move to the other side of the world (yeah, sure not literally, but close enough), at some point you just have to start…

Hanoi Rocks! (Part 2)

As our cool little adventure in Vietnam went on, after the cruise and about 100 museums, we knew it was time to see some jungle. Checking the weather forecast about gazillion times, we realized we’d not be getting a sunny day for our trip. As it is not exactly summer in Vietnam, the weather has…

Bucket lists

Since we’re having a unique opportunity to have my lovely ex co-worker brightening up our vacation and keeping us awake if we get drowsy, I decided to interview her a little. We’re mostly talking about traveling here, so I wanted to know about her travel related bucket list. Although I asked her about it only…

Hanoi Rocks! (Part 1)

Sorry, so sorry for the title, the pun’s just too terrible and predictable, but how could I resist? If you’re not sure what it refers to, please check out the mighty Wikipedia on the topic here. Now, back to the business and what is going on and why am I entitled to make all the…

Hotel LeLe & Frog, Hanoi, Vietnam

Looking for a beautiful, affordable and comfortable hotel to stay in Hanoi? Try LeLe & Frog. The small boutique hotel offers super pretty rooms, light breakfast and a short walk to the old town. We paid 35 USD per night in a deluxe room, and it was totally worth it. The staff here was friendly,…

Happy New Year!

We’ve been here in Taipei for a month now, and so far the following things have happened: We have been very cold (+15 degrees inside and outside in our first place here, not fun times) We have arranged so many practical matters, that I’m about to update my LinkedIn profile and call myself a professional…

Long story short (ish)

(The photos in today’s post are entirely links to our other social media accounts. Sorry if they won’t open okay 😦 ) Although we’ve been here in Taipei for over three weeks now, since the first week not so much has been going on. We’ve seen a ton of cats and dogs (most well groomed,…

7 micro projects to work on (an update part 3)

It’s been a serious forever since I started talking about all the little things we had to take care of before quitting our jobs, packing our bags and taking off. Now that we’re finally in our destination (so far 😉 ), let’s take a quick look at how these micro projects have turned out. As…

A very damn rough guide to Taipei for rookies

Don’t get the title wrong, we consider ourselves as rookies, too. We got to Taipei one and half weeks ago. It was cold, we were carrying our stuff with us, people seemed to have no clue what I was saying to them and our AirBnb apartment was scary and cold and totally what you’d get…

The 3C, a Taiwanese Girl and the scariest attic in the world

  We survived Christmas in Kuala Lumpur (I spent most of the Christmas Eve fighting a massive headache, forced myself to the dinner we’d paid for, and had to sport through it while surrounded by screaming kids and people wearing funny hats), saw the new Star Wars movie (really good), visited the KL Forest Eco Park,…

Have yourself a Merry little adventure

Merry Christmas, everyone! Today we are flying from Chennai, India to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. As we take more and more steps on the road to self, we are getting our Christmas present every day. Every day we get to see a little bit more and a bit better what the future holds for us; what…
