Weekend Road Trip: Brugge, Belgium

by Darryl Hall @ escapingthedesk.com

We are incredibly lucky in Britain, with Europe just 30 minutes away on High Speed train.  It's easy to make last minute plans to explore a nearby country for a couple of days.  This weekend we have decided to pick up the backpack again (Ok well make that suitcase) and explore Brugge in Belgium. This will be our 3rd time visiting Brugge – a historic medieval town that somehow managed to evade much destruction during the World Wars.  It stands as a living time capsule with it's venice like canal system linking all corners of the city together. We are determined to actually see some of the big sights properly this time around.  Apart from visiting the culturally important Frietmuseum, we haven't done a whole lot else – except for lots of walking and playing on the frozen canals in the winter. So I hope you join us on this potentially cultural tour of Brugge, we will be blogging as we travel around and give the place a full guide write-up later on.  You never know, we might just end up giving the cultural crap a miss and get drunk and fat on chocolates instead. Wish us luck!

A Technologically Challenged New Mom’s Favorite Apps

by Rachel Loftspring @ Chewables Chicago Recent Posts

I am so not savvy when it comes to technology. But when Mila was born, it became clear that it was time to look into some new (for me) apps – her grandparents demanded photos! They’re all easy to use/available from my iPhone, and not because I think iPhone is best (actually, I kind of hate it as a phone), but because it’s what I have: iCloud Photo Stream – I realize I am late to the party (is the party still even going on?), but I love that I can store (as backup) all the photos I am obsessively taking of my daughter and invite a limited number of people – close family and friends who actually want to see all the photos I’m taking – to see them. This way I also avoid broadcasting all her photos on Facebook/other more public social media sites, which I did not want to do. Added bonus: extra storage on iCloud is ridiculously cheap. FaceTime – Okay, I am even later to this party, but having FaceTime when grandparents are out of town is pretty much the best thing ever. They love seeing her real time, and she will love it too one day. Case in point: I have a friend whose two year old’s nightly routine includes a call to her out of town grandparents. She can even do it by herself now while her parents clean up/take care of other things around the house. Baby Connect – During these first few months, the doctor has had us tracking all feedings and diaper changes (prompting more discussions about poopy and pee pee than I ever thought I would have in my life). This little app is amazing. It’s super easy to log everything, not just feedings and diaper changes, but size and weight, vaccination records, milestones, etc… And you can have multiple users inputting from their own phones, and the information will sync. The app costs $4.99 and is worth every penny. Sound Sleeper – Apparently some babies fall asleep to different kinds of white noise like magic. That is not my kid (the sleep sheep, loved by so many, seems to have no effect whatsoever on Mila). But I’ve heard some of the white noise apps are good, and this one has several sounds to choose from, including a shhh and womb sound. I’m still deciding how well this works for us, but the app itself has been simple to use. Parents: what apps have you loved? Any other technology tidbits? I’m open to trying most things, especially if it makes her sleep longer at night! Subscribe to Chewables Chicago!

Hey, Krista.  Thanks for taking part in our third edition of ‘Intrepid Journeys'.  Tell us a bit about yourself and The Wellist I am the founder and editor of The Wellist, an online publication inspiring everyone to travel the world and do it WELL (hence The Wellist). At the end of 2013, I quit my job in corporate finance in New York, moved back to my home state California, and took off on a solo journey around Southeast Asia. While I was traveling, I turned to the travel blogging community for tips on where to go, where to stay, etc. Being more of a “luxury traveler on a budget” I decided to start The Wellist in order to tap that budget-‐‑luxury travel market. In March 2014, I decided to turn The Wellist into an online publication with multiple contributing writers in order to cover more destinations around the globe in a shorter amount of time. I also love the unique perspective and individuality each writer brings to The Wellist. South East Asia [...]

My Latest Project (and what happened to Chewables the last 9 months)

by Rachel Loftspring @ Chewables Chicago Recent Posts

It’s been some time since I’ve posted on Chewables, an absence mostly attributable to my latest project: Mila. Mila arrived two weeks ago, and my husband and I are completely head over heels in love. In the nine months leading up to Mila’s arrival, I found myself largely either unable or uninterested in eating out. And exhausted. Hence the lack of posts. However, while it’s obvious to me the exhaustion will only increase, I have missed writing and am eager to get back into blogging. Chewables posts will be somewhat different than before, just as my life is different than before. I expect there to be a larger focus on healthy recipes, exercise, and home posts (I cannot wait to share pictures of my nursery), as well as musings on life as a new parent (I sill cannot believe the hospital let us just take her home). I hope you’ll join me on this journey, just as you’ve joined me in the past!

A Fit Pregnancy: What Worked for Me

by Rachel Loftspring @ Chewables Chicago Recent Posts

I was in great shape when I found out I was pregnant. I ran regularly and consistently hit my 10,000 daily steps. I practiced yoga at least twice a week. I had started taking Pilates again. After seeing those two positive lines on the pregnancy test (and after celebrating with my husband), I committed myself to a fit pregnancy. The potential health benefits – an easier pregnancy, delivery, and recovery – and the positive mental juices I always get from a workout made continuing to exercise a no-brainer for me. Plus, I assumed that, with only minor modifications, I could just maintain my current fitness routine. After all, I had heard stories about women running six miles right before going into labor. I figured, sure, why not? I discovered why not just a few days after learning I was pregnant, when 1st trimester exhaustion, nausea, and food aversions sucker punched me set in. I could barely get off the couch, let alone get to the gym. By the time I made it through 1st trimester and felt well enough to work out, I was far from my pre-pregnancy stellar shape. I had lost endurance, muscle tone, and weight. I was weak. Restarting a fitness routine after an extended break is always hard. Restarting when pregnant was, for me, a major reality check (as was my ever-expanding waistline). I had no choice but to recalibrate my expectations of what a fit pregnancy would look like. It was not going to be business as usual with some minor modifications, but rather a new way of exercising and thinking about exercising. Here’s ultimately worked for me*: Run, run-walk, walk-run, walk (and crawl): Once I peeled myself off the couch, I began running again. No speed records were set (which is saying a lot, since I am notoriously slow), but I was out there running. After a while, I needed to add some walking breaks into my runs. And that walking time became longer and longer, to the point where I was walking with an occasional few minutes of running. In 3rd trimester, I switched entirely from running to long walks, and as those became harder, I aimed for several shorter walks a day rather than a single long one. By the last few weeks of pregnancy, making it two blocks (which was more of a crawl than anything else) was a challenge. Still, I did it (all while cursing those women who ran 6 miles the day they gave birth). Try out prenatal Pilates/yoga: I was religious about taking prenatal Pilates and yoga classes. Yes, the cost of classes adds up, but the hubby and I figured we were saving so much money in wine and dinners out, that it was a wash. More importantly, I felt infinitely better when I took the classes. I tried several options, and settled on two standouts: the prenatal Pilates classes at Core Concepts on Belmont, where we had a regular group of expectant mamas and two amazing teachers, and the prenatal yoga classes at Sweet Pea's Studio, which were part yoga and part group therapy. Strength train arms, butt, and legs: I was not broken, just pregnant, so I continued non-core strength training. This was important not only for once the baby was born (tiny humans are heavy!) but also for delivery, which, along with running a marathon, was the most physically intense thing I’ve ever done. Beyond the strength training in Pilates and yoga, I did squats every day and TRX work outs until I was 36 weeks pregnant. Remember, you are not eating for two: Public service announcement - you are eating for one plus a peanut. As such, pregnancy is not a free pass to eat whatever you want/twice as much as you need. In fact, most pregnant women only need 300 more calories each day than they did when not pregnant. That is not a lot. Did I indulge in a few extra sweets now and then? Absolutely. Especially at the end when pregnancy was particularly uncomfortable and ridiculous (how is it humanly possible to get that big?). But I did not make a habit of it. Enlist your partner/friends: My husband and friends regularly walked me joined me on my runs and walks. And I took Pilates with a great group of expectant women who were also dedicated to having healthy pregnancies and who I looked forward to seeing at each class. Knowing others supported my fit pregnancy goal was crucial, not to mention it made exercising a lot more fun. *Before starting any exercise routine, speak with your doctor/midwife/etc… about what is right for you.

My Perfect Pregnancy Gift: Wine

by Rachel Loftspring @ Chewables Chicago Recent Posts

To me, meals – and life – are just better with a glass of vino. This made pregnancy sans wine rather challenging. My husband, knowing how much I missed wine, came up with a plan to lessen the blow: each month he surprised me with a different, very nice (it helped that our normal alcohol expenses had drastically decreased) bottle of wine that we could share post baby girl's arrival. And he marked each bottle with the month received so we could remember when it was from. Isn’t he the sweetest? His goal was to pick out bottles he thought I would like and also that had some significance to us. We found out we were pregnant while visiting Argentina, so the first, the Luigi Bosca Malbec, is an Argentine specialty (and one of my longtime favorite bodegas). He knows I love port in the winter, so he made sure to include the Niepport in the bunch. The Toscano represented our first trip together when we went to Tuscany. And there are several champagnes, since I particularly craved the bubbly while pregnant. He actually gave me the last champagne the morning our daughter was born – she arrived exactly at 40 weeks – right before we left for the hospital. Below is the full list of wines from my husband. Hardest decision is where to begin. Oh, and if your wife (significant partner/finance/girlfriend/etc…) is pregnant, I highly recommend this! The List

  1. Luigi Bosca Malbec, 2010
  2. Torrione Petrolo Toscano, 2009
  3. Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne
  4. Niepport Porto
  5. Ürzuger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese, 2012
  6. Walter Hansel Pinot Noir, 2011
  7. Crognolo Toscano, 2012
  8. Pol Roger Extra Cuvee de Reserve Champagne
  9. Domaines Ott Château Romassan Rosé, 2013
  10. Daniel Dumont Brut Millesime Champagne 2008

A Weekend in Brugge

by Cristabel @ escapingthedesk.com

We have been to Brugge 3 times now. Twice for the weekend and once just for lunch on the drive back from Amsterdam. The first time we went, it was February and freezing. It was awesome. The second time, it was May and the weather was very hit and miss – the fun mixture of cold winds, sunny patches and rain. Oh Europe how you like to toy with me. You can enjoy Brugge in all weather… as long as you come prepared! The joy of Brugge is that you can spend a few days just walking around it's cobbled streets, checking out the architecture and the canals whilst eating chocolate, waffles and chips.   Even though we have been twice, there are still so many things that we haven't yet done in the town – like take a boat tour around the canals. The first time we went, this wasn't a possibility as the canals had all frozen over, the second time it wasn't really possible as it was just so busy! We aren't a big fan of standing around for ages in queues. Personally, as much as the warm weather was lovely in Brugge, I enjoyed the freezing [...]

Studying Mandarin in China – Student Visa’s & Arriving in China

by Darryl Hall @ escapingthedesk.com

This is part 2 of our guide on Studying Mandarin in China.  This guide will cover the process between applying for your Student Visa at your local embassy, through to what your first week will be like on Campus. We originally studied in China in 2013, during the Spring Semester (February – June) on a Standard Language course.  The first few weeks are undoubtedly the toughest you will face.  Depending on where you study, might mean little to no other English speakers around and the fact everything is written in Chinese Characters makes it virtually indecipherable unless you have a decent knowledge already. The great thing about China these days, is that things are far easier for foreigners than it used to be.  There are shops that cater for all foreign imports of food / drink.  Plenty of expat groups in many Tier 1/2 cities that you can get support from. In your first few weeks living China, if you are feeling down / depressed, there are avenues for support available.  Your University professors will hold the best opportunity for guidance on things, make sure you have their mobile number stored on your phone!!

How we hacked our way to better Travel Discounts online!

by Darryl Hall @ escapingthedesk.com

It's been a while folks.  I've been meaning to write this for a while as we saved a huge amount of money whilst travelling by a few simple ‘travel hacks' on the likes of booking sites / airlines. I refer to this as Geo-locational travel hacking.  Something you may not have heard before? Basically it works like this.. Some travel companies (hotels / holiday operators / airlines) use data about your location (geo location based on IP) to tailor pricing and offers to your specific market.  The fact is, many large companies like laterooms.com, agoda.com or booking.com are global booking agents and they deal with many different markets from a single domain.  What you see on that website is determined by your geo location. This infographic explains more on the geo based pricing for travel, hotels and air tickets.   You can test all of this yourself by downloading a VPN and switching your location around and searching for the same thing over and over again from different countries.  Here's how to test it out. Download a VPN, you can get free ones but generally speaking the free ones are slow and don't work.  We always used (and still do) VyprVPN [...]

5 Tips in 5 Minutes – Staying Out of Trouble in Southeast Asia

by Darryl Hall @ escapingthedesk.com

You may have noticed many travel blogs out there have a dedicated section for ‘tales of the road’ and ‘travel incidents’. But we haven't got one of those sections for good reason. There are plenty of mishaps that will occur when you're on the road for an extended period of time. There will be decisions that you regret making, perhaps accidents that you could have avoided. These things happen to even the most sensible of us, but it can put would-be travellers off from picking up the backpack. I also see most of those stories written in a bad tone or even laughed at. Sure you can laugh the problems off afterwards, and learn your lesson.. But is there a need to glorify your experiences in short essays on how you overcome every single one and build up your personal ego? Anyway, that is my rant over. Yet, I am sure you want to know some tips on staying safe whilst travelling. Every country works in a different way and tourism can make locals behave in an unfortunate corrupt manner. Look at this from locals perspective though. Imagine earning unimaginable low wages, with corruption strife in every facet of your [...]

Travellers Guide to Daily Budgets in Shanghai, China

by Darryl Hall @ escapingthedesk.com

Continuing with our series of ‘Backpacking Budget Guides to China‘, this week we focus on the daily costs of staying in Shanghai. Generally speaking, Shanghai will be one of the more expensive cities that you may visit during your stay in China.  That doesn't necessarily mean it blows your budgets out.  But with the fact it's the financial capital of China, local higher wages of workers (especially in Pudong) are of course going to mean higher costs of living overall. Shanghai is the eating mecca of China.  It's seriously good and there is just so much choice available.  You may well find that dining out in Shanghai will leave you thinking you may have tried some of the best food in all of China.  And we aren't just talking about Chinese cuisine either.  Because of the centuries of western influence (especially France) there are some really incredible places to eat Italian, French, British & American cuisine.  But again, just be mindful of your wallet.  Generally speaking these types of places are on par with prices back at home.. So you won't be eating cheap if you decide to eat the upmarket western food. Our total overall daily budget whilst in [...]

Travellers Guide to Chengdu (China) – Travel & Attraction Costs

by Darryl Hall @ escapingthedesk.com

When we travelled across China, we had the fortune of being able to travel through so many interesting places with major attraction draws.  Perhaps the only exception to this was Nanjing, although with plenty of awesome attractions, didn't have the big draws as say.. The Great Wall of China.  Well maybe you could consider the Nanjing Massacre as something people have heard of outside of China.. But it's not really a happy attraction is it? Over the 5,500km of distance we travelled across China, we tried to make sure that we could visit the top tourist draws in those places.  So in Hangzhou, we spent a lot of time around West Lake.  In Shanghai we enjoyed our time in Pudong and walking on the shorelines of the Old Bund.  In Beijing we saw history up close, at The Forbidden Palace, Summer Palace and The Great Wall of China at Mutianyu.  In Xi'an we of course visited the The Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum. The next destination on our list was Chengdu, with maybe the ‘cuddliest' form of attraction we both wanted to see, especially Cristabel!

6 Signs You’ve Survived A Trip to South East Asia

by Darryl Hall @ escapingthedesk.com

South East Asia is a beautiful place to travel, with a wide variety of cultures to experience. But there is plenty you need to know to survive and not sweat the small things on your trip. If you've already travelled there, these might re-kindle some memories! You Know That “Mild Hot” Means VERY Hot (Reference: http://qz.com/) You may have wanted to eat a spicy dish in Asia and ordered the mildly hot.  But when you taste it, your mouth is on absolute FIRE! Everything in Asia is purposely 10 time hotter than anything you've ever tasted before! You are better off just avoiding the hot sauce all together.  Especially if you don't want to keep making runs to the toilet constantly throughout your travels. But if you’re into the extremely hot, Asia is also known for it’s great chilli eating contests. It seems as if some people are born with already numb tongues and crying eyes because of how much the contestants can withstand.  The Thai's are notorious for the love of anything hot.  Evidenced by the fact they even have absurdly hot sauce on their breakfast! Travel off the beaten track, Rent-A-Moto/Scooter to gain more mileage on your travels (Reference: http://travelerbydesign.com/) You will see plenty of travellers renting scooters in South East [...]
