After a full month in Myanmar without a single cooking class I was excited to get back to Thailand to take a class at the Blue Elephant Cooking School. Over the past few months I’ve taken many different cooking classes but without a doubt this one stands out from the rest.
After my first Thai cooking class at the Silom Thai Cooking School I was craving for more. There was no way I could leave Thailand with only one cooking class under my belt. For a change of scenery I figured why not combine a few…
Before we even got to Thailand I already knew I was going to be taking multiple cooking class. Thai food, after all is one of my favorites and there was no way I was leaving the country without a handful of recipes mastered.
Vicky and I rode with the Easy Riders for four full days. Everyday we had breakfast, lunch, and dinner with them and saw nearly a dozen different things, all of which provided different insights into Vietnamese culture and history. Here I’ll highlight a few of our favorites:
You may have noticed that Vietnam has involved a lot of tours. First we did the tour with Sapa Sisters. Then there was the tour of Hanoi, then Halong Bay, followed by the tour in Hue, and most recently the tour in Hoi An. All of those, however, were but warm-ups for the biggest tour Vicky and I have been on since our trip began; A four day motorbike tour through the Central Highlands with the Easy Riders.
Before even arriving in Vietnam I already knew I loved summer rolls. Fresh veggies, noodles and meat or shrimp all bundled in a rice paper wrapper to be dipped in a fish sauce based dipping sauce = perfection. So when I found the Hanoi Cooking Centre as being top rated cooking class on trip advisor AND offering spring roll themed cooking classes, I booked a class without hesitation.
Vicky and I knew that during our 5 days in Hanoi we were going to want to do a tour of Halong Bay. Not only was it recently named one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, but after two months in China, we were dying to see the ocean. After only a day in Hanoi, it was very clear that many other travelers had the same thing in mind, as Hanoi is literally riddled with tourist agencies offering Halong Bay Cruises.
Every destination has a multitude of accommodation options, it’s difficult to choose which one to go with. Sure, we talked about Couchsurfing, hostels, and hotel stays on this website, but there’s also apartment rentals, house sitting and more! What are the major differences between these and how do you decide what’s right for you? Let’s discuss.
You might be wondering what a seaglass post has to do with a travel blog.
Actually, not a lot.
But here at ACoupleTravelers we support people who support us, and it just so happens my parents have a small seaglass jewelry shop that we would like to feature here. Now you may be wondering…
As you can imagine, Vicky and I spend an inordinate amount of time online booking flights, hotels, hostels, you name it! It’s important to have reliable, user-friendly websites we can turn to. Like a hammer to a carpenter, these are after all, our tools.
When we were approached by EasyToBook.com to review their website, Vicky and I happily agreed.
