Sleeping Amongst The Dead In Puerto Inca, Peru

by Forest Ray @ WanderGoGo

“What is this place?” “This is the necropolis of the Inca.” The young woman at Hotel Puerto Inka’s lonely reception desk motions towards small circular stone structures dotting the hillside above us. “You can walk around if you like,” she says. “Just don’t disturb the stones.” The sea carves out a small cove here at Puerto Inca, along Peru’s southern coast. The bulk of the necropolis clings to a thin strip of sand between jagged pillars of volcanic rock and the battering tide. The only permanent occupants here are death and the ocean, two forces beyond human scale, each held in the other’s gaze. Even the hotel is merely a visitor. Skeletons lie scattered within the crumbling stone walls of […]

Quenching Thirst With Argentine Wines In The Burning Lands

by Forest Ray @ WanderGoGo

In Salta, a band of gauchos sing songs of loss and loneliness upon grasslands as vast as any sea and just as unforgiving. Festive families sing along and sometimes take to the floor to dance to the gauchos’ rhythm. The four of us share a bottle of wine and grow closer in the soft lights, festive sounds, and rich smells of the dining hall. Valhalla itself could not be so convivial. Wine is officially Argentina’s national drink. Although Argentine wines travel the globe, the overwhelming majority come from Mendoza, a smallish place in the heart of Argentina’s wine producing region. But what wines await in the rest of this expansive region? Fueled by curiosity and our shared love of wine, […]

If a city strikes your fancy, rent an apartment for a month and stick around for awhile.

Another advantage of worldwide Internet networking is that it allows us to exchange short-term apartments without going through an agent or company. Check the New York City craigslist sublet page and you’ll find plenty of Parisians happy to exchange their Left Bank apartment for a little temporary stepping stone on the Upper West Side.

8 of the Best Cafes in Hanoi

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

The big cities in Vietnam have a cafe culture that is virtually unknown to the rest of the world. Don’t expect a Chemex of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe with hints of blueberry and strawberry or an Aeropressed Kenyan. You might be able to locate one eventually, but not before tripping over scores of cafes serving up tumblers of coffee so dark it looks like used motor oil and smells like the most intense mocha you’ve ever had. It’s no secret that we love Vietnamese coffee and as a follow up to our very popular Saigon cafes list, we offer a list of some of our favorites in the northern capital city.

The 5 Best Night Markets in Taipei

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Taipei is inarguably one of the top street food cities in the world. Taiwan is known as the land of snacks: they have literally invented and re-invented genre after genre of snack food over the years. From pearl tea to fried chicken, the Taiwanese are all about inventing and perfecting the ultimate snack foods. Think Chinese-influenced foods created with the ingenuity and dedication to perfection that (you would think) only the Japanese would bring. While Taipei isn’t quite as famous with local Taiwanese as Tainan for their snack culture, they’ve got it covered and will most likely be your first stop in Taiwan. The sheer volume of street food options available alone are enough but, matched with the quality and price of the food available on the streets, it’s pretty much unbeatable. The catch with Taipei street food though, is ... Read More »

Most of the best inflatable loungers of 2017 weigh just a few ounces too, which means they are ideal for travelers who like to pack light.  There are so many things that make these the ideal choice for your relaxation needs, not the least of which is how comfortable they are. They come in a range of styles, from outlandish to subdued, so you can find one to […]

‘A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY’: THE TWILIGHT ZONE EPISODE THAT EXPLORES OUR NEED TO TRAVEL

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

“a place around the bend where he could jump off”

Created during a time (1959-1964) when American television seemed eerily clean and domestic, The Twilight Zone challenged viewers to examine a possibility of uncertainty beyond the comforts and assumptions of contemporary life. It was my favorite thing on TV. One episode in particular always stuck with me- A Stop at Willoughby. It brings up questions. How could such a ‘successful’ man working in a New York tower and living in an upscale suburb be so miserable? Why would he dream of escaping to a sleepy village where the streets have no name and the children wear overalls and go fishing?

A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY is the story of an advertising executive named Gart. Gart feels endless pressure from his pugnacious boss and his minion-like coworkers at his New York City office during ... Read More »

10 THINGS I CAN’T TRAVEL WITHOUT

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Recently I’ve taken a four-month break off of travel to settle into a comfortable life in a quiet town. It’s been nice, mostly.

I do miss packing and unpacking the bags. I miss tossing away ripped up socks, giving away paperback books, and moving what’s left of my big shampoo into a small little shampoo thingy.

Some things are essential to have packed and ready to grab when I’m on the road. I will not include the obvious things like a camera, computer, passport, etc. These following are the little home run hitters that are easy to forget about, but always needed:

1. DENTAL FLOSS

I like to eat. I like to eat meat. I like eating late. My teeth are spaced fairly far apart from laughing too much. Stuff gets in there and I need to get it out. I’ve often been wandering ... Read More »

The Living Spirit Of The Pyramid Of The Sun

My whole life I had dreamed what my first experience abroad would be like. Would it lead me to drop out of college and never look back? Would I meet my future husband and elope? I can tell you, neither of these things happened. My first experience abroad happened this past summer. A professor from my university was planning a study abroad trip to Cuernavaca, Mexico for a month so that students could study Spanish at the Universidad Internacional. As a Spanish major, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to fulfill my wanderlust and earn some class credits. For months prior to my departure date, I talked about all the adventures I was bound to have and how […]

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN THAILAND

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand, with over 26 million foreign entries in 2016, can be a very touristic place to visit. By some accounts, 20% of the Thai GDP is based on tourism (worldwide nations average about 10%). Thailand is often an entry point for all of Asia, a constant revolving door of tourists on short or extended trips. We’re writing this article to help you avoid getting your hand caught in that often dangerous door.

Thailand is a country that can live up to its high expectations and reputation. It really can be paradise. On the other hand, it can be a disappointing place filled with drunken pub crawlers, tourist scams, empty promises and subpar made-for-tourists versions of local dishes. Pad thai made with instant noodles? You’ll find it all over Phuket and Koh Samui. If you venture past the tourists districts, the food ... Read More »

SIEM REAP’S 10 BEST BARS: CLASSY, HIDDEN DIVES JUST OUTSIDE OF ANGKOR

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Every year I find myself in Siem Reap, Cambodia for a week. It’s inevitable, and always enjoyable.

Angkor Wat is, along with Bagan in Myanmar, one of the two most spectacular temple sites in Asia, if not the world. I’ve come back again and again with friends, or by myself. Although lately I barely spend time in the temples of Angkor Wat, I love the cafe and bar scene of nearby Siem Reap, a charming little French colonial town adjacent to Angkor that now serves as the tourist-amenity center of the region. Though a tourist town, it’s far from a tourist trap. There is something about the clear blue sky, slow clouds and that long twilight that I love here. And, there’s the drinks.

Pub Street is famous here. It is the center of Siem Reap and the fulcrum of activity in ... Read More »

5 of SAIGON’S BEST HIDDEN COCKTAIL BARS

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is a place of surprises, much of them elusive to first-time visitors with just a few days on the ground. Though a bit challenging at first, Ho Chi Minh City eventually became our favorite city in the world and a base for many of our adventures in the Southeast Asian region. It’s also a pretty great place to go out and grab a drink, whether it’s a Monday or Saturday, Saigon’s music venues, breathtaking rooftop bars, and tiny neighborhood spots are buzzing.

Unlike the more world famous, easy-to-find spots of Bangkok and Shanghai, Saigon is a city of tight neighborhoods which unveil themselves only to those intrepid enough to explore the tiniest, faintest lines on the map. Saigon doesn’t have a Times Square or Pudong. It’s a megacity comprised of small, distinct districts and alleys. Perch ... Read More »

Searching For The Elusive River Ganges In Varanasi

by Sue King @ WanderGoGo

Visiting Varanasi — the spiritual heart of India — on the banks of the River Ganges, was a long-standing dream of mine. The city had always fascinated me, maybe even scared me a little. I had read that few people visited Varanasi without falling ill. I had heard about the proximity to death, the funeral pyres, the floating bodies, the poverty and constant hassle from touts and beggars. I was also aware that there was beauty amongst the squalor. River ceremonies, vibrant colors, faithful pilgrims and floating candles.   A Memorable Bus Trip From The Nepalese Border My partner and I spent five months backpacking around India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. We carried only day packs, took local buses and […]

LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt External Hard Drive

by Elliot Pelling @ WanderGoGo

Imagine having your phone or computer stolen during a trip. It’s horrible. And while the shock and cost of replacing your belongings is often the first thing to come to mind, the real tragedy is your lost data. Hundreds of photos and hours of video gone. Memories never to be recovered. While cloud technology is improving and able to act as a good option for some, a lot of countries don’t have reliable internet connections that allow you to backup large quantities of data. If you don’t want to go through the heartache of losing everything you worked so hard for, it’s best to keep a second, physical copy around you just in case.

How to Order Coffee in Vietnam Like a Local

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Vietnam is a country that runs on coffee. There is a cafe on just about every block in Saigon and Hanoi and they’re packed most of the day with a mix of locals leisurely sipping away enjoying the day and others grabbing a quick fix on their way to wherever they’re headed. The cafe culture in Saigon is why it’s one of our favorite cities in the world. To see the list of our favorite Saigon cafes, check out our post on it.

Coffee is brewed differently in Vietnam. It’s sort of a mix between the French press and pourover methods and despite producing great coffee, it’s surprisingly “low tech”. You won’t see any chem-lab looking siphons or giant blown-glass drip towers. Coffee is brewed in a little metal filter called a “phin”. Grounds go in, water goes in, and coffee ... Read More »
