Fly Problems?

Fly Problems?

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

Then there is this fly infested market in Laos. Food lying on the street, no fanfare, no advertisement, just fruits, vegetables and fresh fish. Just healthy food, the type of food that holds the key to vast reductions in death from disease for Americans. And, I have to think, it's not pretty, but at least it's honest.

Issyk-Kul South Shore, Kyrgyzstan Experiential Travel Guide: 20 Ideas to Get Started

by Audrey Scott @ Uncornered Market

By Audrey Scott

If you travel to Kyrgyzstan, it’s almost impossible to miss Issyk-Kul, the second largest alpine lake in the world (after Bolivia’s Lake Titicaca). But Issyk-Kul is large with two long shores, each a different personality. So where to focus your effort? For many, the temptation is to take the highway along the northern shore directly […]

What Are Your 2018 Travel Resolutions?

Mindful Eating = Mindful Living

Mindful Eating = Mindful Living

by shade market @ Journal - shade market

During the 4 week duration, the cleanse took me on a journey inward. Being forced to think before eating or drinking suddenly sparked a lot of thought. While having lunch, I was aware of how the food differed from what I might normally eat: how it tasted, how it smelled, what emotions it triggered. While digesting I could feel my body working, absorbing nutrients. When something didn't agree with me, I could feel my body’s disdain.

The Ultimate Travel Guide To Railay, Thailand

by Sarah Shumate @ The Wanderblogger

It’s been quite some time since I’ve written about any of our Asia explorations. To remedy this oversight, we are going to kick off a new year of travel tales with a guide to one of my favorite destinations in Southeast Asia – Railay Beach in Krabi, Thailand! We arrived in Railay about this time last year for a short break over the Chinese New Year holiday. I’ll get to why you shouldn’t book over CNY in a minute, but first I want to tell you about this place – this magically wonderful place that has the power to transform even the most uptight of us (I’m talking about me here) into completely relaxed, pad-thai-eating beach bums without a care in the world in under 24 hours. Guaranteed.* *Not really, but you get what I mean. RAILAY, THAILAND Located along the southern coast of Thailand, Railay is actually a peninsula, but feels more like an island thanks to the dense jungle that cuts it off from the rest of Krabi. A mix of dramatic limestone cliffs, postcard-worthy beaches, and thick jungle, Railay truly has it all, scenery and activity-wise. But what really makes this spot unique (and what makes it […]

Eating on the Streets of Saigon

Eating on the Streets of Saigon

by shade market @ Journal - shade market

It was a relief seeing a Roman alphabet upon arrival in Saigon (now called Ho Chi Minh City, but all of the locals still refer to it as Saigon). In terms of eating, Roman alphabets come in very handy; if you know a few Vietnamese dishes you want to try, it’s much easier to spot who serves what. Vendors make it very apparent as to what dishes they serve.

8 Fun Things To Do In Singapore At Christmas

by Sarah Shumate @ The Wanderblogger

The sun’s out in full force, the average daily temperature is hovering around 30° C, and the humidity level will have you sporting a dewy glow within seconds of stepping outside. What’s that mean? It must be Christmastime in Singapore! Despite (or maybe because of) the not-so-Christmasy weather, Singapore really outdoes itself this time of year creating the most merry and bright holiday atmosphere in all of Asia. With festively decorated streets and shopping malls and an abundance of lively holiday events and activities for the whole family, Singapore offers both residents of and visitors to the Little Red Dot a wealth of ways to get into the holiday spirit. The following are eight of our favorite things to do in Singapore at Christmas!

Tips For Driving The Apache Trail In Arizona

by Sarah Shumate @ The Wanderblogger

Planes, trains, boats, buses. We’ve traveled to a lot of places in a lot of different ways, but my favorite is still the old fashioned road trip. There’s so much freedom in hopping in your own vehicle and being able to stop whenever and wherever you please. Plus, of the top five ways to get from A to B, it’s the best choice if you happen to be traveling through scenic areas. We’ve been fortunate enough to take some pretty scenic drives over the past few years. (The Scottish Highlands and Western Cornwall are two that come to mind!) And while we were in Arizona visiting family for Christmas last year, we got the opportunity to take another – the historic Apache Trail drive. THE APACHE TRAIL WHAT IS IT? Historically, the Apache Trail was used as a migration route by the Apaches (hence the name) to travel from their winter homes in the desert lowlands to their summer homes in the mountains. Later, after Anglo-American soldiers and gold-seekers arrived, it became a popular stagecoach route. Today, it is one of Arizona’s most dramatic scenic drives weaving through rugged mountains and alongside sparkling desert lakes and terrifying cliff drop-offs. HOW […]

Jerash, Jordan: Giving Rome a Run for Its Money

When’s the last time you saw a likely tourist on the streets of your town and went up and welcomed them? “Welcome” seems to be the default greeting in this gorgeous, jaw-dropping country that I can’t wait to visit again.   Amman reminds me a bit of San...

A Surprise Introduction to a New Love

A Surprise Introduction to a New Love

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

One of the first friends we made in Chiang Mai is a kid named Gangi.  He's 19 years old, built like a professional football player and an avid biker, with a recently opened bicycle repair shop.  Ganji is the son of a Burmese father and an English mother but has called Chiang Mai home his entire life.  Of course the first thing we asked him was where we should eat.  He did us one better and took us out to dinner.  We were expecting Thai food.  Instead he brought us to Burmese Restaurant and Library.  Paige and I sat down while the young man shuffled about looking in pots, pointing at things and chatting with the cooks.  Soon he sat down and in minutes an unprecedented feast arrived at our table.  So started our love affair with Burmese food.

Hiking In The Superstition Mountains In Arizona

by Sarah Shumate @ The Wanderblogger

You wanna know something cool about Arizona? It’s possible to go hiking in the mountains less than a week before Christmas with absolutely no need for snowshoes, three layers of clothing, or even a jacket. And not only is it possible, it’s comfortable. In fact, I’d say December is probably when you want to go hiking in Arizona, unless sweating yourself into dehydration is your idea of a good time. (Just kidding. I actually know nothing about hiking in Arizona in the summer, but my guess is it’s pretty freaking hot.) When we flew back to the US for Christmas following our move to Singapore, our first stop was Arizona. We arrived on a Saturday evening, utterly exhausted and ready for bed, but if there’s one thing that can cure jet lag faster than any other, it’s getting outside as soon as possible. So first thing the next morning, we headed out for a hike. Our destination: the Superstition Mountains. THE SUPERSTITION MOUNTAINS The Superstition Mountains, locally known as the Superstitions, are a range of mountains located about an hour’s drive east of Phoenix. Part of the Superstition Wilderness Area, the Superstition Mountains have a wide variety of trails to […]

They are also home to some of the best, most authentic Thai food in Chiang Mai.

Celebrating Our Last Christmas In London

by Sarah Shumate @ The Wanderblogger

Had we known our last Christmas in London was actually going to be our last Christmas in London, we probably would have done things quite a bit differently, but as it was, we only found out about our impending move to Singapore just four days before Christmas Day. Being able to spend almost the entire holiday season without the pressure of knowing it was our last in the UK ended up being quite the blessing in disguise, though. No doubt, had I known we’d be leaving six months later, I would have spent the whole month of December running all over London doing all the Christmasy things, seeing all the Christmasy streets, and eating all the Christmasy treats, thoroughly exhausting myself and the rest of the family by the time December 25th rolled around. Instead, we got to spend the holidays in blissful ignorance, carrying on with our usual London Christmas traditions as if we’d be doing them for years to come, and enjoying every minute of what ultimately became our last holiday season as expats in the UK. PICKING OUT THE PERFECT TREE The weekend after Thanksgiving, we headed over to the Christmas tree lot in front of our […]

Hospitality in Saigon

Hospitality in Saigon

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

"Arm! Arm!" a Vietnamese waitress instructed me, as she shoved my messenger bag into my chest and wrapped my arm around it.  All around Saigon's touristy district 1, visitors can be witnessed hugging their backpacks to their chests to prevent theft.  Our waitress was helping protect our belongings, which I appreciate, but I'm not going to walk around clutching my purse.  Some questions were raised: where are all of these Vietnamese scoundrels?  How and when will they strike?

Farmer's Markets, Chiang Mai

Farmer's Markets, Chiang Mai

by shade market @ Journal - shade market

With the abundant street markets downtown and farms lining the hills, we naively assumed that the meat and produce in Chiang Mai came from independent farmers. But, large agribusinesses, such as CP, maintain monopolies on agricultural production; much like Monsanto. This type of farming requires large amounts of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. The produce itself is then brought to market by middle men, who purchase from farms and transport it to villages and cities for sale. Farmers are left with no say on how their crops are distributed or how much they should be sold for. It’s harder than we thought to find organic produce and food that comes directly from the source.  The bustling markets of Chiang Mai lost some of their magic when we realized that we had been misinformed. But, the best tasting food is found at the street markets and in grungy kitchens. So, how can we eat traditional Thai food while considering sustainability?

Happy New Year From Singapore!

by Sarah Shumate @ The Wanderblogger

Happy New Year from Singapore! I thought I was going to have something a little more interesting to share with you today, but you know what they say about the best-laid plans… Make them, and a giant monsoon will come through and wreck them all. Okay, maybe that’s not what they say. But that’s what happened. Our plan had been to go down to the Marina Bay area and watch Singapore’s New Year’s Eve fireworks show from across the water. I’d been looking forward to it for months and even knew exactly where I wanted to sit for the best view with the least amount of people. (Gardens by the Bay East, in case you’re curious.) It was going to be just like that time we watched the New Year’s Eve fireworks in London, but without the triple layers of clothing and threat of frostbite. And then the monsoon came through. It arrived with gusto during the night on New Year’s Eve Eve. Waking all of us up with its thunderous arrival, I actually smiled to myself, thinking Oh good, we’ll just get all this pesky rain business out of the way now! But when raindrops were still pelting against […]

A Very Merry Christmas In Arizona & Tennessee

by Sarah Shumate @ The Wanderblogger

Before we spent Christmas in Arizona last year, my list of countries visited was almost triple that of US States I’d seen. Believe me, I’m not telling you this in an attempt to humble brag about how many countries I’ve been to, because in the grand scheme of things I actually haven’t been to all that many. I’m telling you this so you know just how little I’ve seen of my own country. It’s something that bothers me more and more every year as I continue to see the rest of the world while my home country stays mostly undiscovered. But that’s an entirely different topic for an entirely different day, because today (and the whole month, really) is about Christmas. Last year’s Christmas to be exact. During our years in London, we were only able to make one trip back to the US every year and usually chose to take it over the summer when Lexie’s school break was longer. But as it happened with our move mid-way through the year to Singapore, we were lucky enough to get two trips back in 2016, one in the summer and one for the holidays. It had been three years since […]

Shade Market Cooking: Fresh Tofu

Shade Market Cooking: Fresh Tofu

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

For years I completely ignored tofu.  It just never excited me.  In my eyes, it was white-ish, bland soy mush.  How ignorant of me!  But, in all fairness, we are not taught to appreciate tofu in the States.  As we mention in our post on soy milk, the mass produced "tofu" that's common in the United States is not real tofu.  It's just soy protein concentrate pressed into a cake.  Real tofu is a whole soy product, including most of the fiber and healthy fats in the soy bean.  Real tofu isn't bland.  It has a slightly sour flavor from the vinegar used to curdle the soy milk.  Real tofu has a vegetal taste from the skin of the legume.  It has a toothsome quality akin to queso fresco or haloumi.  Tofu's porous nature allows it to soak up sauces and flavorful oils. I will continue to ignore the mass produced soy-food that is found in supermarkets, instead opting for fresh tofu at asian markets.  Or, better yet, home-made tofu.

Railay Phutawan Resort: A Tropical Getaway In Railay, Thailand

by Sarah Shumate @ The Wanderblogger

Is there anything more time-consuming during travel planning than searching for the perfect accommodations? Don’t get me wrong, I truly love this part of planning a vacation, but it does take a lot of time to sort through each and every property in our budget before finally making a decision. It might seem a little silly to spend hours searching for something we’re hardly going to do more than sleep in, but for me, a good night’s sleep and waking up in a place that puts me in a good mood every morning is well worth the time and effort put in to find it. That being said, sometimes it is a relief to have limited places to choose from which was the case in Railay, Thailand. Railay is a small peninsula in the Krabi province of Thailand sporting mostly wild jungle (which separates it from the mainland), but also several world-class beaches. Because of its small size, Railay only has a couple dozen different resorts and hotels which made my job of finding the right one a whole lot easier! With a maximum budget of $100/night and our preference towards a villa or cottage, we were able to settle […]

A Little Story… How One Maasai Tribe Is Changing the Face of Responsible Tourism

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

The sharp guffaw of a wild baboon startled me from sleep. Close as a whisper, the eerie sound ricocheted through my dreams. I awoke in full fight or flight response mode. My eyes whipped open, careening around the space; they slowly adjusted to the soft ochre light emanating from the banked campfire. From somewhere outside the dim […]

Travel Fatigue After 11 Months on the Road

by noreply@blogger.com (Outlander Abroad) @ Outlander Abroad

I wrote this out while hiding in a much-needed private room in Chengdu, China, when the little frustrations of daily travel life were beginning to take their toll on my mental sanity.  This was just prior to some very necessary days with some familiar faces from the States and three blissfully relaxing weeks in Bali with my Portuguese pirate.  It bears sharing in its honesty.  Burnout happens, and at that point I had to just put my head down and charged forward, until I reached the "break" I had put out there for myself.  In another situation, perhaps I would have just stopped and gone straight to visit friends, or return to a more familiar, comfortable destination and camp out there for a while.

**********

Mere days after I hit the eleven-month anniversary of my travels, as I found myself collapsing onto my fourth bed in a week's time, I felt absolutely exhausted, grouchy, and overwhelmed at the thought of making the regular series of decisions that I have to tackle on a regular basis:  Where will my next stop be?  How will I get there? How much longer will I be in this city? What should I do tomorrow? Where should I find food?  

While this journey has been an absolute dream of mine, and while I'm truly enjoying every step of the way, it bears acknowledgement that feelings of burnout were likely to occur at some point along the way, given the duration of my travels.  I had already experienced something akin to homesickness, a longing for a space of my own, familiarity, a routine - without wanting to give up traveling or return home.  But after a few days of rest and relaxation in Northern Thailand, I forged ahead, racing through Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia, with a very brief stop back in Bangkok as I made my way towards Hong Kong and perhaps my most intimidating destination of my entire trip:  mainland China.  I had been so good about forcing myself to stop and stay in one place early on in my travels - spending a full three weeks in my own apartment in Buenos Aires, followed by nearly five weeks based out of Aveiro, Portugal, very shortly thereafter.  Since then, I have hardly stayed in one place for a week.  In fact, I can probably count on one hand the number of times I actually succeeded in doing so, most being prior to my run through the aforementioned countries.  

At this point I do have some rest and relaxation ahead, but it's still a little under three weeks away, when I have a full three plus weeks of beach time in Indonesia.  That doesn't sound too far off, but that is also the entirety of the duration I have remaining here in China.  While it would be tempting to just stay in one place a few extra days and get in some necessary recovery time, I don't want to miss the opportunity to see some of the incredible sites that I came all the way to China to see and experience.  Which is truly the conundrum of any traveler, especially the long term one - how to balance seeing and doing and experiencing with sanity-saving days off?


I'm going to try and push through for the next few weeks - I'm still resolved to see the terra-cotta warriors in Xi'an, spend time with my friend Amy in Shanghai, and visit the Great Wall and the Forbidden City in Beijing.  But perhaps I don't have to overextend myself and do too much else.  I have to try not to overly pack my days full, or I risk collapsing into a terrible mood that's some horrific hybrid of hanger and exhaustion.  

**********

Looking back, I did overextend myself, nearly reaching a breaking point a couple of stops later in Zhangye.  But that's also where I found some sort of stubborn resolve and fought back.  I began my mental recovery when I set foot in Shanghai, a more comfortable city for a Westerner, and a place where I would stay with a friend from home.  I found another familiar face in Beijing, and that was enough to carry me through, to end my stay in China on a positive note, before my mid-trip vacation in Indonesia.  But, more on those things to come...

To Kill a Clucking Bird

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

"Jay-zon", a few seconds of silence, "Jay-zon" again, a raspy yet kind voice called out.  The moon was high, and I was lightly dreaming when I heard my accented name. Groggily, I got up to see what Rocky Bittika wanted.  Rocky is a stocky, strong Karen man and one of the full-time residents at PunPun.  Imagine him as the Burmese "Wolverine", a gruff, good-hearted outdoorsman. Over the past few days, we had bonded over gardening, badminton, smoking cigarettes, and table tennis.  That night, Rocky had something on his mind.  In two days, he would be leaving the farm.  He was en route to the Burmese border to celebrate the ceasefire between a faction of Karen rebels and the Burmese military.  He wanted a grand send off.  "Maybe I will get a fish, or a chicken...or something like that.  We can kill it, and you can cook it,” Rocky said to me, as we puffed some of his aromatic tobacco and papaya leaf blend in the moonlight.  I was honored that he chose me as the chef.  Killing the animal is an important link in the food chain, and being a city boy, I'd never experienced it.  I was excited. Anxiety welled up in my chest.  Fresh blood would flow.  By firelight we would sacrifice a chicken, in honor of Rocky, and feast on its flesh.  I was also tired, and when our meeting was over I stumbled to bed, my head met the pillow, and forgot about our tete a tete.

Shade Market Cooking: Condiments Part 1

Shade Market Cooking: Condiments Part 1

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

When I sit down at a restaurant, whether it's fine dining or a diner, I want a bottle of hot sauce close to me.  In Thailand, they feel my struggle.  Places that serve great food and those that serve up mediocrity will almost always have condiments set at each table. It is actually a sign of a quality restaurant if their table side seasonings look fresh and abundant.  Our favorite spot for Khao Ka Muu, braised pork shank over rice, is a great example. The traditional garnishes of raw whole chiles, raw whole garlic cloves and scallions are usually crisp and unblemished.  The same can't be said for their competition.

Scenes From A Singapore Christmas + An Announcement

by Sarah Shumate @ The Wanderblogger

Satay roasting on an open fire. Sweat droplets dripping from your nose. Construction carols being sung by heavy equipment hire. And folks dressed up in very little clothes. Sorry, I’ve never been particularly skilled at rhyming, so that’s the best I’ve got for you. But if you ask me, it’s still a fairly accurate depiction of a Singapore Christmas…for those of us used to a more northern hemisphere Christmas anyway! Since we returned to the US for Christmas last year, this year’s Christmas was the first one we actually got to spend in our new country. And despite my terrible attempt at a humorous ‘Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire’ parody, celebrating Christmas in Singapore wasn’t actually all that bad. In fact, it was pretty darn amazing. (Once we got used to the fact that the weather was never going to feel very Christmasy.) The holiday season officially begins in Singapore the first week of October. That’s when the Christmas lights and decorations start going up on Orchard Road and stores begin advertising their holiday sales. It’s a little early if you ask me, but I can’t really say anything. We never even took our Christmas lights down after last […]

This is a Northern Food

This is a Northern Food

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

It's early morning in Chiang Mai, and Ton Payom market is starting to get going at full speed.  A tapping rhythm can faintly be heard from the western entrance.  As we drift towards the southwest corner of the open air market, the tapping becomes a pounding. We finally got to the market early enough to watch a young man help prepare our favorite laap.  The dish laap is a salad of minced meat, in the same sense that steak tartare is a salad.  But it is more than that.  Laap is a dish of celebration.  It's a verb, a communal activity.  Laap is a rhythm passed down for centuries, pounded out with blades, flesh and blood.  Or, as Mr. Yoot, one of the proprietors of Ton Payom's laap stand, put it, "This is a northern food."  The modest presentation of laap belies its rich flavor and history.
