Washington DC – A Walk on The Mall

Washington DC  – A Walk on The Mall

The Washington National Mall is one of the best organized, and most encompassing and colossal of all the forums of the world that I have ever witnessed. If you’re in town for only one day, which we find many people doing on road trips along the east coast, then there is a walk along the National Mall which we feel is mandatory to get a good experience of the city. Time of year does matter,…

Bohemian Travel Destinations

Bohemian Travel Destinations

With last years travels to Japan and Korea under our belts, we settled back into our comfortably posh lives back in Washington, DC. Of course we know our travel itch is only placated for small amounts of time, and eventually we wanted to leave again, this time for longer, so we could travel farther. Researching destinations, possibilities, and opportunities became an obsession. With loose plans conceived, we wrapped up all projects, moved everything we own…

Innovative Singapore

Innovative Singapore

Locals call it a ‘fine’ country. Littering- $500. Protesting- 1 year in Jail. Go to 7 Eleven to buy chewing gum, you can’t! Chewing gum is illegal in this country. But we haven’t seen cigarette butts on the ground, littler in the streets, or stains on the sidewalks. This country is spotless, and not only one of the richest countries in the world, but also one of the most modern and dazzling. Singapore architecture already…

Life in Egypt

Life in Egypt

Beware of Egypt. It’s full of tasty swaramas and delicious scams, fruity aromas of street-side hookahs, and a nose clogging combination of sand and smog. The streets are busy and the subways crowded. Pedestrians side step, dodge, and hurdle food stands, electronic shops, and sweater peddlers as they weave and waltz with each other. We were lost in Egypt, but there was never anything that needed to be found. Everything was everywhere only in greater…

Socialist Republic of Vietnam

April 20, 2010- We have arrived in Ho Chi Minh City! The traffic is purely chaotic, the vendors see us as walking wallets, and the food is delicious! We are excited to wander around the city documenting and learning the customs of the people here. We are sorry to see Sarah Jane leave, but excited to hear about her crazy adventure back to the U.S.!…We’re a little behind on video footage, but now that we…

3-17-2010 Leaving DC was quite the adventure! It was so hectic getting to NYC to make it to our flight to the other side of the world…But we giggled at the obscene, adored the beauty, and enjoyed the great race that is life. 3-19-2010 On the flight over we flew China Airlines. The flight attendants have such poise, grace, and elegance. Their skin is so perfect like a porcelain doll- At times, I had a…

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka

A teardrop-shaped island cast adrift in the Indian Ocean, Sri lanka is filled with cultural and natural treasures. Indians, Portuguese, Dutch and British have all left their marks here, making for a delightful mix of ancient cities, monuments and atmospheric colonial architecture. At the same time, palm-fringed beaches are never far away and mountainous greenery beckons inland. It’s clear to see why Marco Polo proclaimed Sri Lanka to be one of the best islands in…

Dubai

Dubai

Dubai – A designer city Glitzy, glam, over-the-top and a little overexposed, Dubai lives for attention. On the surface it’s materialistic beyond anyone’s wildest dreams and by treating every visitor like a VIP, visitors respond by spending like VIPs, only to need resuscitating when the next month’s credit-card bill arrives. But this is the whole idea. We’re talking about a city that virtually invented the ‘shopping festival’ (Dubai Shopping Festival, or DSF), the simple premise…

Jordan

Jordan

Amman, Jordan’s capitol, is known as the white city. It showed layers upon layers of white limestone boxed houses, clustered together atop rolling hills. Centuries upon centuries of civilizations revealed some mesmerizing views of history.  The people greeted us with warmth and sincerity while the children welcomed us by yelling “Welcome To Jordan!!” from the rooftops as we passed by. Invitations to sip tea with strangers was plentiful. The Bedouins Village of Petra preferred their…
