Taking A Chalkboard Around The World
Taking A Chalkboard Around The World
A trip around the world has always been on my bucket list. I still can’t believe that Jeff and I finally did it. We’ve just returned home to our sunny island home of Phuket, Thailand and finally have a moment to look back on our amazing journey around the world.
.
Before we started this trip, I knew that we wouldn’t have the space in our luggage for souvenirs as we were going to nearly 30 different countries. Even though we have been told we packed light, I can assure you that our bags were anything but light. This inspired me to think a little outside the box for souvenir ideas.
.
My favorite part about traveling is looking back on my photos long after the trip. It is a great way to put you right back to where you were and bring back memories you had long forgotten about. I wanted to do something fun and different with my photos. So I thought, “Why not bring a chalkboard?” I decided to have a photo taken of myself  holding a chalkboard with the name of the country I was in. I wanted a way to visually see each country while having a reminder of myself in that place during that time. Even if I may have been up all night, had not showered in days or was only in a country for a few hours, I wanted to remember all of it.
.
Now, 28 images later, I have a fun collection of pictures that for me, sums up our 159 day, 32,281 mile trip around the world!

CANADA:
Even though Canada isn’t too far from my home county, it was still really exciting to go visit! Two days in Vancouver and I was in love! Canada is a great country and Vancouver is a beautiful city!

ENGLAND:
Since we only had two rainy days in London, and as it was my first time to England I knew I wanted the cliché photo with a red phone booth!

BELGIUM:
Brussels was a beautiful city and I was surprised at how modern of a city it was. We had one of our favorite meals of the entire trip in Brussels, an absolutely amazing beef stew. This photo was taken at the bus station before we boarded to Amsterdam.

ISRAEL:
With so much history in Israel, I had a hard time deciding where would be best to take a photo here. While we were driving with a guide through the desert we went to this cliff where you could see a beautiful monastery in the hillside. I thought that this would be a great reflection of this historical importance of Israel.

IRELAND:
Green! I knew I wanted this photo to be green, but I struck it rich when we just happened to get some sunshine since it was gloomy and raining during most of our stay. Ireland may have been our first stop, but it was also one of our favorites. Read our “Complete Guide to Ireland” for our best recommendations!

MOROCCO:
Oh Morocco! We were here for just a few hours while stopping during a cruise we took early in the year. I had always imaged Morocco as a colorful place, however Casablanca was not what I imaged. This is at the Hassan II Mosque which is the 7th largest mosque in the world.

AUSTRIA:
Innsbruck, Austria is a beautiful little ski town nestled in the mountains. We were lucky enough to stay with some wonderful friends here for 2 weeks!

SPAIN:
We were lucky enough to be in Barcelona on my birthday in January! Once again, this was a quick stop during our cruise so I can’t wait to get back to explore more!

CZECH REPUBLIC:
We met some great friends in Prague and had an amazing time exploring this beautiful old city. While Europe has some of the best beer in the world, I’d bet most of it can be found in Prague, and at a cheap price too!

EGYPT:
Egypt just may have been my favorite place on this trip! Not only did I fulfill a childhood dream of visiting the pyramids, but we also got to spend great time with some new friends!

HUNGARY:
Budapest is one of the most enchanting cities in Europe. It is a great city where history meets a modern twist. I would live here in a heartbeat! This was the first time we have used AirBNB and found ourselves in this old apartment complex trying to find which apartment was ours!

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES:
Even though we spent most of our time in Dubai, we were still able to get out and see the beautiful desert! Jeff and I were both really impressed with Dubai and can’t wait to get back to explore more.

ESTONIA:
Tallinn, Estonia is a quant little old city and has so much culture and lots to see. We were only here for one night but enjoyed walking around the old town watching the snow fall.
.

FINLAND:
Finland is also on the top of my favorite places we’ve been to this year! Helsinki is a great design oriented town that is hip and embraces its rich history, although I had to take this photo while up in Lapland exploring the arctic circle and seeing snow fall for the first time in my life!
.

ITALY:
We went to many places in Italy, but it was in Venice during Carnival that I wanted to take this photo. Carnival was such a unique and beautiful way to explore all that Venice has to offer.

NORTHERN IRELAND:
While in Dublin, we decided why not take the 3 hour drive with some friends up to Northern Ireland to see the Giant’s Causeway and while we got there right after sunset we were able to catch some light for this photo!
.

.
GERMANY:
Germany has always been on the top of my list of places to visit in Europe and this year it finally happened! Although we only had 2 days in Berlin, it was great to learn more about Germany’s vast history and how the city has transformed to a modern city with tons of artistic expression.

HOLLAND:
I didn’t know if I should write Holland or The Netherlands but in the end it didn’t matter since we had such a great time in Amsterdam exploring the canals!

PORTUGAL:
This photo is in Lisbon near the port while it was pouring rain. We had to be quick since the rain just kept washing the chalk off the board, but it made for a fun experience!

TURKEY:
Although Istanbul has so much history and culture, it was this pop of color while walking around that caught my eye. I wanted to show a different side to such an old city.

SWEDEN:
Since we spent an entire night at the airport in Stockholm we though it would be fun to take photos in the nearly abandoned airport at 2 in the morning.

VATICAN:
The Vatican is such a beautiful place and it was very surreal to see all the paintings and murals in the museum, but it was here that meant the most to me. It really is amazing to stand here and thing about all the people that come here to see the pope.
.

Chalkboard around the world

.
MALDIVES:
Holy blue ocean! The Maldives are such a beautiful place. There are 1,190 different islands so it is hard to pick just one. We stayed in Maafushi which is a local island, but as you can see we still had a resort like beach to spend our time.
.
Chalkboard around the world
.
FRANCE:
Paris is a place that every girl longs to go to at least once in her life and I was no exception, I absolutely fell in love with Paris. We had an amazing 5 days here with a good friend who was kind enough to show us around this memorizing city. I can’t wait to get back and eat some more macaroons!

SINGAPORE:
While it was not my first time in Singapore, it was great to be back and see how much this city has grown. Singapore is a beautiful city which great people and beautiful architecture.
.
Thailand
.
THAILAND:
Phuket will always be a second home to me and it is where we began and ended our around the world trip. Living here has really opened my eyes and taking this photo was really important. This photo was taken in a little lagoon in Koh Phi Phi Ley near where the majestic beach from the movie The Beach was filmed. You can see another hidden beach in the background that we could swim to. Taking a long tail boat out to this preserved island and spending the day snorkeling and soaking up the sun is my favorite thing to do in Thailand.

MEXICO:
Growing up, my family always spent at least once if not twice a year in Mexico. This year I was fortunate enough to get the change to travel to a new place in Baja called Loreto. It is a great little fishing town located right on the Sea of Cortez.
.

.
SRI LANKA:
Sri Lanka is a beautiful island nation located just southeast of India and visiting was a great treat for me. There are many elephants, beautiful landscapes and beaches. If you ever get the chance to visit this beautiful country, take it!

The Best Festivals Around the World

.

Each year we try and keep an eye out for the best festivals in the world and how many, if any, we can experience. While some festivals are well known and popular to visit, there are many which are less known but equally entertaining. Festivals bring people together, celebrate special times of the year, push out the old, bring in the new and give everyone the chance to relax, celebrate and let loose, so here is out list of the best festivals around the world, starting of course, with our hometown favorite, Songkran in Thailand.

.

The Best Festivals Around the World

.

 

Songkran (Thailand)

Officially the celebration marking the Thai new year, Songkran has evolved into one of the most fun and memorable festivals around the world. What was once celebrated by marking each other with water to bring in the new year and cleanse oneself, Songkran has become a nation wide water fight all across Thailand and one of the most fun days of the entire year. From the North in Chiangmai, where they celebrate the hardest, down to the South, in Phuket, the entire country erupts into laughter during the April festival as no one is safe and nothing is off limits. Police line the streets, their radios wrapped in plastic, as they are often a big target. Business men wearing suits are just asking for it and you wouldn’t dare sit outside a cafe and drink a cup of coffee without looking over your shoulder. Thais and westerners celebrate alike, by either setting up roadside stations with buckets and water hoses to soak those passing by or by loading up the bed of a truck, filling large trashcans with water and throwing water on all who pass. One of the most light hearted festivals in the world, Songkran is one of our favorite days of the year.

Carnival (Venice, Italy)

Celebrated on three different continents, Carnival is hands down one of the best festivals around the world. While New Orleans in the USA and Rio in Brazil have their own versions which are a massive hit, our favorite is the classic Carnival in Venice, Italy. Visiting Venice during this iconic festival has been on the top of our travel list for years, so when we got the chance this year we leaped at it. We were not sure what to expect when we arrived, and were quickly swept off our feet into the magical feeling of the festival. Gondola’s slowly passing by our window, beautiful Italian songs heard on every street and mysterious masked revelers appearing around each corner made our experience of Carnival one of our favorites of the year and something we will never forget. Venice is also a great  destination to combine with other European travel and there are lots of rail itineraries like this which can help you to maximize your holiday.

Burning Man (Nevada, USA)

Maybe one of the most unique and, errr, odd festivals in the world, Burning Man brings in an eclectic crowd from all over the world to celebrate art, music, dance and general weirdness in the middle of the Nevada desert each August. What started as a small annual festival has boomed into one of the biggest festivals in the USA each year. Tickets sell out almost instantly for the bizarre event and bring in partygoers from all over the planet. Built up to hold hundreds of thousands, the entirety of “Black Rock City” is then completely removed at the close of the festival. Volunteers work hard to make sure not a single trace is left in the desert each year. A mecca for individuality, Burning Man boasts some of the most impressive works of modern art in the world, brought in and build just for the festival. Burning Man might be a bit extreme for many, but it is certainly one of the best festivals around the world.

Oktoberfest (Munich, Germany)

Europe has some of the oldest and well known festivals in the world and Oktoberfest might just be the top of them all. Who doesn’t love beer, suspenders and beautiful women? While it technically starts at the end of September each year, Oktoberfest officially ushers in the start of the harvesting season and is celebrated by beer drinkers and party goers world wide who descend on the southern German city of Munich each fall to join in the fun. Not much needs to be said for one of the best festivals around the world, so book your ticket, prepare to drink gigantic amounts of beer and wash it all down with delicious German pretzels and meats, a true mans festivals if there ever was one, which is not to say the women love it too.

San Fermin Festival (Pamplona, Spain)

Known by many as the running of the bulls festival, the San Fermin festival takes place each July in the Spanish city of Pamplona. While the running of the bulls is actually the last event, the two week festival holds some of the most entertaining events of any festival in the world. Both running with the bulls and a gigantic tomato fight are events in the festival which started to honor San Fermin, the patron saint of Navarra. The festival has gotten larger and more popular over the years, now a top destination for thrill seekers world wide who want to enjoy the thrills of running in mass, dressed in red and white, away from charging bulls. While we have never been to Pamplona for the running of the bulls, we have it marked in the calendar for this summer and cannot wait for the chance to run for our lives!

Yi Peng (Chiangmai, Thailand)

The name might not ring a bell but the images of this amazing festival sure will. Known as the lantern festival to many, the Thai festival is celebrated mainly in the northern city of Chiangmai where once a year, in the month of November, thousands and thousands of people gather to send off their bad habits, sorrows and negative thoughts up into the air in beautiful paper lanterns which light up the sky for days. A magical feeling falls over the city each November as visitors stream in from each corner of the world to release their own lanterns in one of the most picturesque moments of the year. While lanterns will be found floating in the air for days, there is a particular moment when everyone releases lanterns together which completely takes over the night sky in one of the most awe inspiring sights you can witness. Chiangmai is not one of the most visited cities in Thailand behind Bangkok and Phuket, but it has some of the most beautiful scenery and magical festivals, including Yi Peng each autumn.

Holi (India)

How could we make a list of the best festivals around the world without mentioning India? While India seems to almost have a festival for each week of the year, no festival has spread across the world quite like Holi, or the color festival as it is known to many. Colleges all over the world celebrate Holi each year, many students having no idea where in the world it came from. In the US, there are organized “color runs”, which while may have not come directly from Holi, are certainly strongly influenced by images of the festival seen around the world. Officially celebrated to mark goods victory over evil, Holi, much like Songkran in Thailand, is simply a happy time for many Indians, one of the happiest of the year. While nothing could be more special than celebrating Holi in India, if you don’t find yourself on that side of the world, just ask around and you will surely find a group of people celebrating in some form wherever you are. Celebrated in March each year at the passing of the full moon, Holi is by far one of the best festivals around the world.

Where Will You Be In 2014?

Where Will You Be In 2014?

.

With 2014 shaping up to be our most adventurous year to date, we hope to make the year all the more memorable by connecting and meeting up with new friends, bloggers, photographers and strangers all over the globe. As many of you know, for most of 2013 we lived in Phuket, Thailand which we absolutely loved. While we will be returning to Thailand in 2014, we will be taking a very backwards and exciting route. We realized that we will be working through most of Europe, the Middle East, and India before finding ourselves back in South East Asia and want to meet up with and cross paths with as many of our friends and fellow travel loving bloggers as we can while we are on the road.

Where Will You Be In 2014?Let us all use this space as a place to loosely lay out our 2014 travel plans and see where we all might cross paths and plan a couple travel blogger meet ups. Now, if there is one thing we have learned during our life on the road, it is that plans change, and we all end up in far flung corners of the Earth without really planning it, but, let’s just pretend some things might end up going according to plan and we find ourselves in the same cities at the same time.

We will use this place to update our 2014 travel plans, post about possibly meet ups in different cities and see who is going to be around. If you have travel plans for the year ahead, simply post them below in a comment and look at the other comments for people you might be crossing paths with. We will post ideas and possible locations for meet ups for drinks, photo walks and sheer exploring of new locations.

So, where will you be in 2014? Let’s all have a fantastic year, see the world around us and inspire those around us to get up off the couch and travel like they mean it!

.

Our 2014 Travel Plans (subject to massive and unpredictable last minute changes)

January – Ireland

February – England, Wales, Scotland, France

March – Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Sweden, Romania

April – Turkey, Dubai, Iran, India

May – Thailand, Vietnam

June – Thailand

July – Thailand, Japan

August – October – Thailand, Cambodia, Laos

November – Thailand

December – Australia, New Zealand, Fiji

.

So there you have it, our extremely adventurous, tedious, robust and improbable 2014 travel plans. Our first few months in Europe will be mad, and we really hope to get to Iran and India before heading back to SE Asia. We know plans will change and who knows but we hope this can be a thread for us all to comment and hopefully share info, tips, contacts and travel plans.

Cheers and we hope to see you along the road in 2014!

– Jeff & Marina

12 Best European Christmas Markets

12 Best European Christmas Markets

.

Each year across Europe, Christmas markets pop up and fill town centers with cheer and joy. While not every city has a Christmas market as impressive as the 12 cities below, most have at least a small christmas market of some sort. The one thing that I love about European Christmas markets is the authenticity and quality of the goods, crafts, food and people. The foods offered are amazing, hearty and home made, the crafts are unique, hand made and sturdy and the people are genuine and merry.

We are excited to be visiting Europe this winter and while we will be arriving after Christmas, we hope there are still some remnants of these Christmas markets to enjoy during our travels!

Have you visited any Christmas markets while traveling in Europe? Which are your favorite ones? Favorite foods? Let us know in the comments!

Cheers and Happy Holidays!

10 passport stamps to brag about

10 Passport Stamps to Brag About

One of the coolest parts of traveling internationally is slowly (or not so slowly) gathering unique and different passport stamps and visas from all the different places you visit along your travels. Some visas take up entire pages, some have little stickers that look like postage stamps, some are all hand written and some just look plain awesome. Passport stamps are like a secret point system among well traveled people. Travelers share their passports with others at hostels, hangouts, planes, trains, etc. Nothing is more fun than looking through someone else’s passport and seeing a crazy stamp you both have in common or finding one that you have always wanted to get!

The majority of passport stamps are fairly subtle and boring, England and Holland I’m looking at you, but some are really cool! Have you been to Nepal or Bangladesh recently? While each country has their own passport stamp, there are a few places out there that are non immigration points that offer a passport stamp, which are super cool! Here is our list of the 10 Passport Stamps to Brag About, how many do you have?

1. Antarctica

Having a passport stamp from Antarctica tells the world that you have almost run out of places to explore! Often referred to as the final frontier, the last of the 7 continents, it takes some real dedication to get there. Most people leave from Punto Arenas, at the very bottom of Chile and set sail for the land of ice. Many cruises in the area will stop in Antarctica or on the Chilean Frei Base in the South Shetlands Islands where you can get a passport stamp and even mail a postcard home or to friends, stamped as sent from the bottom of the earth. The passport stamp itself is pretty awesome, complete with a penguin.

2. Machu Picchu

Didn’t know you could get a passport stamp in Macchu Picchu did you? As you enter the national park site, there is a small room off to the left before you show you ticket and enter the gate with a couple tables complete with the very cool stamp and ink pads. You get to stamp it yourself and place it anywhere you wish in your passport. While I am not completely sure this is 100% legal to do, it sure is fun and what a cool stamp to have in your passport! Also, if you are brave enough to make the hike up the ancient inca trail to Macchu Picchu, you can get even more exciting and unique stamps at check points along the way. stamp_02

3. Easter Island

Located 2,182 miles off the coast of Chile, Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui, is one of the most off the beaten path destinations on Earth. Famous for its Moai heads, only the most hard core travelers make it to Easter Island. (did you know the heads also have bodies buried under ground?) The passport stamp itself is nothing too crazy, but having a stamp from Easter Island will most surely give you some added street cred among even the most well traveled adventurers.

4.Greenland

Greenland is home to just 50,000 people and is not visited by many. The easiest way to visit Greenland is via an Air Iceland flight from Reykjavik, the capital city of Iceland, to Kulusuk, Greenland, a flight that takes a bit over two hours. Greenland is said to be a beautiful country, with stark contrasts between snow and ice, recently in the news a lot as a National Geographic cover called it “ground zero” for the discussion of global warming. The goal here is just to obtain the stamp, as the stamp itself is as boring as Canada’s but will make a way better late night hostel story among new friends.

5. San Marino

Officially part of Italy, San Marino is completely surrounded by Italy, and is only 24 square miles large. “San Marino claims to be the oldest surviving sovereign state and constitutional republic in the world, as the continuation of the monastic community founded on 3 September 301, by stonecutter Marinus of Arba“. Even though San Marino has an open border agreement with Italy, visitors can still have their passports stamped earning it a spot on the list of the 10 passport stamps to brag about.

6. Hong Kong

A stamp from Hong Kong is different than a stamp from China, and a pretty cool stamp at that! Hong Kong is one of two Special Administrative Regions of the People’s Republic of China, the other being Macau. Here, you will get a passport stamp upon arrival and departure just like anywhere else, but something about visiting such an interesting island with a wild history is pretty cool, plus I just love seeing the Chinese symbols in my passport.

7. Cambodia

What fun would this list be without including at least one Kingdom? While Thailand is also considered a Kingdom, the Cambodian stamp and visa is a level up from Thailand, simply because it takes some hassle to get there. Cambodia has a very colorful history and with so many temples like Angkor Wat and all the historical sites in Phnom Penh, it makes a fascinating destination for those seeking a bit of adventure, delicious food and a friendly and caring people. A stamp from Cambodia is certainly something to be proud of and worth showing off. Take a moment and read about the time Jeff watched the sun rise in Angkor Wat all alonecambodia passport stamp, lat

8. The Galapagos Islands

Officially part of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands lay 500 miles off of its coast. Home to less than 25,000 people, the Galapagos Islands contain one of the most diverse and interesting ecosystems anywhere on Earth. (I’ve got to see a Frigit Bird before I die.) Much like Easter Island, a passport stamp from the Galapagos is worth bragging about, as it takes some serious dedication to get to this far off island.

9. Berlin

At certain points in Berlin, there are remaining sections of the Berlin wall for tourists to see. For about $10 you can get 8 souvenir passport stamps in you passport. While simply being in Germany is not the most impressive passport stamp, having one from the Berlin wall is pretty cool. Please note that many travelers have complained about the German immigration officers throwing fits upon seeing these souvenir stamps and have even made people get entirely new passports before being allowed to leave Germany, so stamp away but at your own risk.

10. Akhzivand

Ok, this has got to be the cream of the crop! Akhzivand is a tiny little “micronation” located between Nahariya and the Lebanese border on the Israeli west coast. A man by the name of Eli Avivi founded Akhzivand in 1970 and although its legal status remains ambiguous it is supported and promoted by the Israeli Ministry of Tourism. Surely a passport stamp, which is available, from Akhzivand has got to be one of the most brag worthy out there!
