2018 Kawasan Falls Without the Crowds and On A Budget

by LVV Travel @ LVV Travel

Turquoise blue water, 3 stages of waterfalls and canyoneering – there’s really nothing to complain about… except perhaps the crowds. Kawasan Falls is one of the most famous waterfalls in the Philippines but it’s difficult to enjoy it in all its glory when you have hundreds of people to share it with. We recently visited [...]

Expat Exposed: Raksha In Sydney, Australia

Expat Exposed: Raksha In Sydney, Australia

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

Meet Raksha, an Indian girl who loves traveling! She mostly travels solo and loves to meet new people and explore new cultures. Traveling is her first love and photography is her second. 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. I had a job before I arrived in Australia, so […]

Best Supplements For Travel (Pack These Before You Leave)

by Rob @ Date Vietnamese Girls

If you’re planning to visit Asia, bring supplements. Why? Because it’s tough to enjoy a Western diet. In most Eastern countries, locals don’t eat much beef and many dishes contain almost no protein. As such, it’s hard for your body to adjust. Long-term travelers and expats often complain about feeling “off” or having brain fog. […]

Budget Tips: Unexpected Travel Costs While Backpacking

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

While most budget travelers are already conscious of great deals and do not make frivolous decisions, sometimes that isn’t enough to keep expenses down. Sometimes there are unexpected costs that occur while backpacking that are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate. Types of Unexpected Travel Expenses From healthcare to flights, there are many costs that can explode when things don’t go your way on a trip. Instead of covering a vast list of hypothetical expenses that could arise on any trip, I am going to run through my personal list of unexpected costs that popped up throughout my trip in Southeast Asia. All

Private Island Paradise in Belize

Private Island Paradise in Belize

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine myself on a private island paradise in Belize. The Central American country had been on my travel list for years since I’m a certified scuba diver – did you know that the second largest barrier reef in the world (after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia) is just off the coast of Belize? My company (I’m a travel advisor!) was lucky enough to receive an invite for 3 nights on Royal Belize Private Island…I’m still in disbelief that I got to go! Royal Belize is a private island buyout which means that only one party can use it at a time, whether it’s one couple (hello unbelizeable honeymoon!) or a multi-generational family or group of friends. The island can easily accommodate 10 adults and varies when kids are thrown into the mix. There are various ways to get to the island depending […]

How Travel Advisors Benefit The Traveler

How Travel Advisors Benefit The Traveler

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

One of the biggest lesson I’ve learned about my job is that people have a common misconception about travel advisors and are unaware of the benefit to working with one to plan their travels. In this day and age, there is a wealth of information on the internet at our fingertips so a lot of people plan their own travels. Which begs the question: “Why pay someone to plan a trip when you can do it on your own?” Believe me, I was asking the same question less than two years ago so when I was looking for a job, the title of “Luxury Travel Advisor” didn’t appeal to me until I started doing my research. Not only did I find that it is an extremely fun and fulfilling career to have, but I also learned that Luxury Travel Advisors benefit the traveler in a number of unknown ways. First-hand […]

If you look close enough, you can tell that the sand on the beach is pink!

Do New Point-of-Sale Technologies Make Workers Hate Me?

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

For the past several years, the use of new point-of-sales (POS) technologies, like Square, that use a touchscreen have become popular among businesses. These systems are sleek, easy to use, and have decreased the length of in-store credit card transactions. For me, they have also done one more thing – raise my self-consciousness about not tipping. One reason shop owners love these systems, I assume, is that they increase tips. After the cashier swipes your card, they flip the screen around to face you and you see a screen that looks like this: Before these systems, a customer would have

Each room in the hotel has a large terrace overlooking the ocean – my sister came with me on this trip and we liked to sleep with the door open to the terrace so we could hear the ocean as we went to sleep.

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 […]

Chilean Patagonia Destination Highlight

Chilean Patagonia Destination Highlight

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

Patagonia. It’s a major bucket list item for some but to be honest, it really never crossed my mind to add Patagonia to my list of destinations I really wanted to travel. When my company received an invite to go to Chilean Patagonia (Patagonia also extends into Argentina!) in the spring, I accepted the invitation hesitantly really only because I was already going to be in Santiago, where the trip began, two days before the start of the Patagonia trip. Time-wise, it made sense for me to go so I said “yes” to the invitation. And I’m soooo glad I did. Patagonia is unique because the landscapes are so varied. During my time in Chilean Patagonia, I saw countryside extending as far as the eye could so, enormous mountains, crystal blue glaciers, waterfalls, etc. There was a new delight around every corner. Patagonia is an adventurer’s paradise – I loved […]

Malay Cuisine: Food in Penang and Kuala Lumpur

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

I know for a fact that I had never tasted nor wondered what Malay food was like until I showed up in Malaysia. After a few weeks and dozens of meals in the country, I’m still not 100% sure what Malay food really is. Why? The food in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, and throughout the country, as well as the population, is a mix of Malay, Chinese, and Indian. Between the Chinese noodle soups and Indian curry dishes, both of which are local styles, it’s pretty difficult to distinguish what is solely Malay. Even though I couldn’t pick it out of

To be blunt, our trip to Koh Tao was nothing like the scuba-filled tropical adventure we had been building up to for months. Rather than getting cheap scuba training in one of the diving capitals of the world, Stu and I sat in our hotel room and watched Netflix for two days – he with a brutal cold and I with the stomach acid of an overweight, chain-smoking, grapefruit juice chugger paired with the remnants of my bronchitis. Neither of us were physically fit to dive nor did we have the mental drive. To top it off, we realized our visas expired in a couple days

Hi everyone! I’m here to explain why I’ve been so MIA the last 3+ months and to fill you in on what’s been happening with me in Atlanta. As some of you may know, I moved to Atlanta last October without a job, and only a faint idea of what I wanted to do for my career: social media/marketing or something in the travel industry. I didn’t have a very clear idea of where my life was about to take me. Thankfully, after two months applying to every job I could find, I began researching what travel advisors do in today’s day and age. This is the vision I had in my head: travel advisors sitting in their respective cubicles staring at their computers all day, every day. The career didn’t appeal to me but I had hit a dead-end in my job search. I interviewed with two agencies and […]

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.

A Little Reckoning… On Transformative Travel Experiences and 9 Years of Travel

by Shannon @ A Little Adrift: Wanderings & Traveling the World

But when I say that I was obsessed with them, I mean that I was obsessed. The kind of obsessed that gets people put on watch lists nowadays. If elephants were an attractive girl, […]

by Anthony Forlizzi @ The Shoestring Trekkers

Eating in the Food Capital of Malaysia – George Town, Penang

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

Leaving Southern Thailand behind, the journey to Malaysia involved an overnight ferry, four different mini-vans, and the most unorganized customs/border service I experienced in Southeast Asia. And that’s saying a lot considering the tourist swindling operations at the Laos border.

After denying their request, we let them take our temperatures and they asked us if we had the Zika virus – of course we all replied that we did not. After sitting in the office for 45 minutes while they copied our information by hand

Liwonde National Park was the last stop on my week in Malawi.
