Mai Chau Road Bike

Here’s a quick clip of some of the scenery on my bike ride in Mai Chau

Motorbiking in Mai Chau

Another ‘day’ trip from Hanoi landed us in Mai Chau. From everything we could understand Mai Chau was described as a ‘mini Sapa’ but closer in proximity to Hanoi, and with consistently better weather. Sapa is ~10 hours away, while Mai Chau is ~4 hours […]

Ha Long Bay

The day after thanksgiving we took a 2 night 3 day trip to Ha Long Bay. It’s roughly a 3.5 hour bumpy bus ride from Hanoi, but definitely worth it. Of all the places in Vietnam, maybe even SE Asia, I was most looking forward […]


After Nha Trang we made our way to Hanoi. Hanoi was also quite hectic, similar to Saigon, but a little more backpacker friendly. The streets had more of an old world feel to them, and there were plenty of twists and turns along the way. […]

Saigon at Night

The final segment of the Saigon tour was to get an idea of what Saigon became at night. Our guesthouse was located in Section 1, specifically off of Bui Vien Street, which is the backpackers area. We spent 4 nights there and didn’t venture out […]

Vietnam/American War

We spent a few days in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), and wanted to get an idea of how they perceived the war. The end of the War was signified with the Fall of Saigon in 1975, and the majority of the South was supported […]

Good Morning Vietnam

The itinerary for the weekend was pretty relaxed in Saigon. 1.) Check out the Reunification Palace 2.) Check out the War Remnants Museum 3.) Day trip to the Cu Chi tunnels for an organized tour 4.) Check out the nightlife of Saigon. 5.) Tour the […]


The first leg of my trip is coming to a close, and as I look back on Tokyo, it’s an incredibly modern city with plenty to offer, however it’s tough to go at it alone as a solo traveler. This is one of the more […]

Rickey Being Rickey

Rickey Henderson is amazing, and the G.O.A.T when it comes to a base stealer and leadoff hitter. He is well known for his antics on and off the field. Rickey was never known as a modest man. Moments after breaking Lou Brock’s stolen base record, […]

My Day Trip to Hakone

So two days ago I decided to get away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo and take a 90 min train ride southwest of Tokyo to Hakone. The weather forecast looked good so I booked a 7:28 train to make sure I could take […]

The Early Bird Does Not Get the Worm

So I was up bright and early for the Tsukiji Fish Market, I was out the door by 3:30 AM and walked ~ 1.5 miles from my hotel to the market. I took my sweet time thinking I would have no problem getting a slot […]

Let the great experiment begin!

Konichiwa everyone! The flight from EWR to Tokyo was 14.5 hours, and boy are my arms tired. All jokes aside, springing for business class for my big 6 flights was the best move i could’ve made, what some people may not know is that int’l […]


  Today’s the big day, the pack is pretty tight but coming in at a reasonable 40.5 lbs. I obviously packed way too much. From my recollection here’s my pack 4 button down shirts 3 pairs of pants 5 pairs of shorts 3 long sleeve […]
