    unexpected eats: 5 treats in Boston!

    When I lived in Massachusetts, one of my favourite things to do was to take the train to the city and have a day of walking around, window-shopping, and grabbing some good food. Over the couple years that I called Boston my home, I’d found some favourite places to eat, whether for a snack or full-blown meal. Want to know my top 5? Read on. Mike’s Pastries Whenever anyone tells me they’re going to Boston, I tell them they MUST go here and get a cannoli. The shells are cripsy, the filling is creamy and rich, and there are plenty of variations, so you’ll never get sick of them! I dream about…

    unexpected eats: making hainanese chicken rice

    When away from home, there’s nothing better than comfort food. Though we aren’t exactly away from home, we’re settling into a new one. Singapore is the kind of place that charms you, and well, despite being incredibly excited about relocating to Europe, we miss our Singapore home! So I decided to make some good old Hainanese Chicken Rice. This is the national dish of Singy, and though I did bring a bunch of packets of chicken rice paste to Europe with me, I wanted to make it from scratch. I decided to use this recipe, though I made some changes. Your ingredients are really easy to find in Europe. Some…

    unexpected eats: my favourite restaurants in pokhara

    As you guys definitely know by now, I am a MAJOR food lover. Last year, after returning from the Annapurna Circuit to Pokhara, I quickly learned that Pokhara was a little city that treasured food (at least Lakeside does!). I spent a little less than a week there, but dreamt of returning to my favourite places for yummy post-trekking food! Unfortunately, upon my arrival this time ’round, I learned that most of my favourite places had closed…. which meant I had to try new places! I found these restaurants through luck, recommendations, and chance, and they’ve become my favourite places! If you wanna get that Instagram Go to The Juicery Cafe! …

    unexpected fitness: how to stay healthy while traveling

    When traveling, we often eat loads of local food; we don’t get that workout in; we let our healthy habits slip, because “we’re on holiday!” Being a part time nomad, living half of my time on the road, I have learned how to minimize the fluctuation in my weight and stay relatively healthy. Here are my tips on how to stay healthy while traveling. *DISCLAIMER* I am by no means a fitness professional. I am definitely not the MOST fit person (I still like to eat Brie and chocolate and fried chicken). I can’t guarantee that what works for ME will work for YOU. Also, if you don’t want to…

    unexpected cooking: what to do near inle lake

    Inle Lake is a place that some title “The Most Beautiful Place in Myanmar.” While I did find it beautiful, I found that once you saw the lake, you struggled with figuring out what to do. Here are the top moments of Inle Lake. First off, definitely take your boat trip. Inle is a big vast lake with plenty of life! Beware of the fisherman, who will strike the classic “fishing post,” then ask you to cough up money. Enjoy the scenery, the tourist stops (they’re actually quite fun), and seeing everything the lake has to offer. At nighttime, the puppet show happens! Puppeteering is a lost art, so see it…

    unexpected teatime

    I’ve been wanting to get to Myanmar for quite some time, however each time I’m about to hop on a plane and go, something happens and I end up somewhere else. Two tries later, I made it! Hello Myanmar! I was absolutely shocked when we first arrived in Yangon. For a developing country, one that has recently opened its doors to foreigners, the airport is beautiful! It wasn’t run down at all, and I quickly had to adjust my expectations for the country. We took a taxi to the train station, because we were actually heading out of Yangon that night. We then headed out to explore, carrying all of…
