Natural Wonders: Akame 48 Waterfalls

by Barilee Traveling @ Barilee Traveling

With most of us travellers and expatriates sticking to the Japanese cities, it’s literally a breath of fresh air to get out of the city once in a while. If you appreciate waterfalls as much as we do, take the daytrip from Osaka, Kyoto or Nara to Akame 48 Waterfalls, found in Nabari of Mie Prefecture. A place with water so crystal clear, you can trace every stone and bump along the entire riverbed, and even drink it if you’re as daring (or foolish) as one of us was (*cough* looking at YOU, Barun *cough*). Although the name suggests 48 wondrous waterfalls, the number 48 is used as a way to describe “many.” But not to fret, you still get to see 25 magnificent, gushing waterfalls, ranging from big, small, wide and tall. Check out our photos for most of them, but the five main attractions are Fudo Falls, Senju Falls, Nunobiki Falls, Ninai Falls, and Biwa Falls. It’s also famously home to the giant salamander, many of which you’ll be able to see at the Salamander Center at the entrance of the trail. Duration To complete the 3.3 km circuit, the park suggests 3 hours total (1.5 each way). […]

We’ve already traveled Korea extensively over the last seven years, so we but there’s still a few spots that we’ve always wanted to cross off our checklist.

Essential Packing List for Travelling Southeast Asia

Welcome Aboard!

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

Pardon our tardy announcement – but here it goes – we have added a new travel companion to our team back in June: Nicholas.  Its been a very new type of adventure for us, but we are slowly getting into the groove as a team of three. And while things have certainly changed around here with the new addition, we have no plans to stop traveling. Being able to explore, journey, and experience the big wide world is our way of knowing we are doing things right (for us). Nicholas has already proven himself already on one road trip this summer. We took the long holiday weekend in July to attend a friends’ wedding and explore a bit of southern Virginia. At the time N just turned 4 weeks, and we were a bit nervous about how he would take to our escapades. Sergey and I have a bit of a different perception on how ‘easy’ Nicholas is (who is surprised here?) I will just say, and I think Sergey has to agree, he is no magical baby that you only hear about from a friend of a friend that never cries, only coos, and sleeps through the night by the end […]

Run For Your Visa

by Mike @ Saigon For 91 Days

We had planned on staying in Vietnam for just three months, but when the time came to choose our next destination, we weren't quite ready to leave. After spending so much time in the south of the country, how could we neglect the north? Just one problem: our visas were set to expire. I've heard Cambodia is nice this time of year. How about we visit for a couple minutes?

A Boat Trip on the Saigon River

by Mike @ Saigon For 91 Days

During our visit to District 2's undeveloped Thú Thiêm neighborhood, we noticed a pier to which a few fishing boats were anchored. Interesting. A week later, we returned to try our luck. A fisherman met us on the pier, evidently clued in to what we might be proposing. And he was game.

Hokubo: Home Away From Home

by Jen A @ Barilee Traveling

It’s easy for city dwellers like us to get caught up with our bustling metropolis lives and never really thinking much about the countryside. This is a common theme among many city folk in not just Japan, but many developed countries. Thing is, the countryside actually has a ton of things to explore and experience, and is full of warm smiles that welcome you in like family. But, getting out there and finding your way around can pose some logistical challenges.   That’s why JTB, one of the biggest tourism companies in Japan, is investing a ton in promoting some really amazing rural spots and putting together programs to help both Japanese and foreign visitors discover what the countryside has to offer. We were lucky enough to get a special invitation from JTB to have a guided tour of Hokubo, a quaint little county in Maniwa City of Okayama Prefecture located just an easy 3.5 hour direct bus ride from Osaka. Here’s a look at the sites and experiences we got to enjoy!   Takoaka Shrine   A winding single-road into the mountains had us pulling up to a secluded mountainside shrine.

Best Cherry Blossom Experience in Washington DC

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

As your resident DC experts we have a great post for you today – our best tips for optimal sight seeing of Cherry Blossoms in the US capital. The peak bloom is likely to come super early this year – March 18-23, as opposed to the average early April timeframe – so get your walking shoes and cameras ready, hop on the next bus or plane, and get ready to experience Cherry Blossoms in DC like a pro! First, a bit of background – cherry blossoms are kind of a big deal in Washington DC, maybe even THE biggest deal. The National Park Service issues an official peak bloom forecast, and we have a National Cherry Blossom festival to celebrate the blooms every spring. The festival has been going on for over ONE HUNDRED years. And hundred years is a long time for the United States – that fact alone makes it a big deal. The original cherry trees were a gift from the city of Tokyo to Washington DC in 1912 to commemorate the lasting friendship between the two countries. And though relations between the US and the land of the rising sun haven’t always been so cordial, we […]

Wind, Water & Fury – Hozenji Temple

by Barilee Traveling @ Barilee Traveling

There comes an aura of mysticism and fascination when it comes to ancient rituals of offerings, chants and prayers. Imagine a temple, where fragrant swirls of incense waft past as glowing paper lanterns creak overhead. Candles pierce through the darkness from a glass case, coins tumbling into the donation box resound with sharp clinks and murmurs of prayers float through clasped hands. This is what you’ll find at Hozen-ji Temple, buried in the very heart of one of Osaka’s most popular entertainment districts. While most visitors to Osaka are awestruck by the explosion of lights, delicious scents and exciting sights of Dotonbori, Hozen-ji Temple patiently awaits at the end of a quiet alley known as Hozen-ji Yokocho. Almost mysteriously, all the noise and hustle of Dotonbori just a few dozen steps behind you melt away, replaced by a mist of peace and quiet that wraps you up in it’s calming aura. Hozen-ji Temple has been a key landmark since 1637, just a few decades into the Edo era of 1603-1868. This dimple in history was notable for its stability and popular enjoyment of arts and culture, and Hozen-ji watched throughout its early years as many performance theaters rose – and […]

Barilee Impressions: Hotel Maui

by Barilee Traveling @ Barilee Traveling

Seoul is such a sprawling metropolis that choosing a clean AND affordable place to stay that isn’t a dormitory can feel like a herculean task. On a last-minute trip to Seoul, we were just in that very predicament. A good place to start is a list of recommended accommodations from the Korea Tourism Organization, proudly carrying the “Good Stay” badge of certification. One of these accredited lodgings is Hotel Maui, which although doesn’t bring a taste of Hawaii into downtown Seoul, it does provide a cozy getaway from the hustle of bustle of the city. Just one subway stop from Dongdaemun, the very heart of Seoul city, it matches prime location with fresh digs while running surprisingly reasonable discounted prices for it all. Book through Agoda,  Booking.com or AirBnB for slashed prices on all of their rooms, be it Standard Twin, Standard Double or Standard Triple. Hotel & Facilities Hotel Maui impresses from the outside by combining wood, metal and glass to create a modernistic tower. A “Good Stay” certification sign perches prominently at the entrance. Breeze into the lobby and you’ll be met with bright hues of white with wooden accents and cutesy details, including Christmas decorations for our visit. A […]

How to Travel with an Office Job

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

We’ve been getting this question  a lot lately – how do you travel so much? Or rather, do you work? I guess that’s the appeal of travel for so many – it’s the opposite of the office, of work, spreadsheets, meetings. In fact, work was the driving factor that lead us to get off the wheel back in July 2013, and leave it all behind for 14 months. Now we are back in Washington D.C., and will call the nation’s capital our home base for the foreseeable future. November 1 will mark a year of us moving back into our house. And yet, we’ve traveled more in this year than in the previous three and half years that we’ve lived in our current home. How? What changed? And…do we work? The short answer to the question is yes we work, but we prioritize our time and money to channel towards travel. Just go – it’s that simple. But let’s break it down a bit more: Perspective & Attitude Perspective and attitude is the biggest reason we travel all the time. All other factors are supplementary and fluid — they can change at any time. I don’t know if we would have been as […]

Should you Attend a Travel Blog Conference?

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

So, travel blogger conference. I made the decision to go to TBEX North America 2015 kind of on a whim, a month before the event. I spent the rest of the 4 weeks prior to the conference questioning, and even regretting, my snap decision making abilities. First of all, I am not a huge networker and we are also not certain how far down the ‘professional’ path we want to take this blog. In general, I find the whole concept of selling our ‘stats and message’ to anyone who would listen unnerving. Then, there’s the whole money matter – is it really the best way to spend our disposable income, given the first point? In the end I went – but only because of sunk costs. So, with those negative caveats in mind, here’s a rundown of my impressions from the first ever travel blogger conference that I attended. TBEX is a fantastic value The fact that TBEX is a fantastic value – in purely monetary terms – was my least expected conclusion. But it’s true. The $150 admission ticket gets you one pre-TBEX tour to area attractions (plus the option to just show up and take an unclaimed spot on […]

Southern Laos

by Barilee Traveling @ Barilee Traveling

Southern Laos Pakse This sleepy town serves as both a border crossing town and as a base for intrepidous adventurers set to explore the Bolaven Plateau. More details on Bolaven Plateau below. Alisa Guesthouse: Clean, spacious and well-located on the main Pakse drag. Recommended in Lonely Planet and for once, LP got it right. Sinouk Coffee: A higher-end cafe serving as an ambassador to its namesake coffee resort. An extensive menu, French patesserie-style interior and the best WiFi in town makes it worth a morning or lazy afternoon. Daolin Restaurant Cafe: This is #1 ON TripAdvisor (as of Aug 2016) and the main reason we visited. Top notch friendly service and delicious food kept us going back several days in a row. Bolaven Plateau Tired of the tourist overload of Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng and ready to explore a multitude of waterfalls, ethnic villages, a cooler climate, coffee plantations via 2 wheels & a motor? With elevation ranging from 1000 to 1350 meters above sea level, the heat notably subsides once you get up to the latter and lays the foundation for a region covered in rivers and rich in fine coffee plantations. Rent a motorcycle and hit up […]

Who, What, Where, When and How of TBEX

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

Given my misgivings about attending a travel blog conference (and really, I would have very similar feelings about any other networking event, especially one that stretches over several days), I attempted to calm my nerves by researching what to expect of TBEX. I was able to find quite a bit of information, which reassured me a bit that it wasn’t going to be completely terrible. And that is in fact what happened. All in all, I though TBEX was a great investment of time, energy, and money. So if you are feeling unsure about attending, read part one on why I thought travel conference ended up being great investment for me, and hopefully that will help you to decide whether you should attend. And if you do decide to go – here’s part two on what to expect from TBEX. WHO: Goes to TBEX Expect to find lots and lots of travel bloggers. Some will be aspiring bloggers – as in, never have written a single post, and maybe they don’t even have a name for their blog yet. Others will be rather senior – but, most big time bloggers will be there in speaker capacity. A vast majority will […]

Wanderlust Friday

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

Pardon the interruption in posting — we just spent the most amazing month on the road exploring Mexico. We have so many memories, thoughts, souvenirs, stories and tips to share with you. We will bump up Mexico in priority coverage, and start posting about it shortly. For now, I would like to discuss our addiction. It is known as travel, and I fear it’s getting worse. The day we left Mexico to go back to the US, I cried. And we were actually in Tulum — our least favorite (but not to say that it was totally bad) place out of all that we’ve explored in this amazing country. I feel a bit like a crack user  — nothing will compare to the high of our first long term travel, but I must have more (and each fix is still so, so good). Anyone out there feel the same way? I am not going to ask how to alleviate this longing, because neither one of us really feels the need to do that. We will continue to travel, both short and long term for as long as we feel this need. On the plus side, I can say that choosing a lifestyle […]

Central Laos

by Barilee Traveling @ Barilee Traveling

Central Laos Vientiane As far as Asian capital cities go, Vientiane was actually quite pleasant. Not overpopulated, a diverse food scene, cultural attractions, and an expansive night market make it a place that’s definitely worth enduring the heat for. Buddha Park: Whether you’re buddies with Asian mythology or not, the mix of Buddhist and Hindu sculptures on this grassy section of land will capture your imagination. You’ll find creatures just knee-high to behemoths several stories tall. Go early to try and avoid the searing sun from baking you alive. Do your best to stay in the area surrounding the streets of Samsenthai and Setthathilath, just above the river and night market. This is where most of the action is within walking distance, including several inner city temples, the aforementioned night market, the cultural center, banks, motorcycle rentals and a variety of top class food options. Thakhek / Konglor Cave Circuit Thakhek is a town that really only serves as a base to explore the circuit of caves that stretch eastwards, and most particulularly, the absolutely breathtaking Konglor Cave to the northeast. Inthira Thakhek: Though placed on the higher end of the expense range for lodging, this place is absolutely worth […]

More Than Sushi: Osaka Street Food

by Barilee Traveling @ Barilee Traveling

Heading to Osaka? Whip out your elastic pants and fill that wallet with cash because you’re about to take on the food capital of Japan, famous for being a hub for Japanese cuisine from all corners of the country. Oodles of street food can be found within the more bustling districts, where tourists and busy businesspeople with a full schedule are looking for a quick and tasty fix. Here’s a quick list of the top street foods you absolutely have to indulge in on a trip to the big O! Okonomiyaki   Okonomiyaki was born and perfected in the streets of Osaka, so needless to say, a trip to this foodie city just wouldn’t be complete without gorging on this filling dish. Imagine a thick pancake made with a hearty mixture of egg, finely diced veggies and your choice of meaty topping, ranging from bacon to seafood delights. Or just say “niku nashi de onegaishimasu” for a vegetarian-friendly meal. Foods with “yaki” in the name means “grilled,” and okonomiyaki is grilled to perfection on an iron griddle before its smothered in a sweet ‘n savoury sauce or four. Have it on the go as a true-to-form street food, but if […]

DC like a local: Cherry Blossoms

by Sergey Guryakov @ House to Laos

Last week we published our guide to the Best Cherry Blossom experience in Washington DC in the most iconic spot – the Tidal Basin. And it’s true, if you only have time/patience for one place, you’ve got to hit up Thomas Jefferson Memorial loop (exact location to see the memorial at sunrise). But! As great as that experience will be, it will be something that you will share with lots and lots of other tourists, locals, photographers, and brides-to-be. If, like us, you like to explore a bit more hidden places, away from the big crowds – then this guide is for you. Below are the best cherry blossoms spots in Washington DC – enjoyed mostly by locals, and a few tourists-in-the-know. Hains Point This is cheating a bit, as Hains Point is part of the Tidal Basin circuit. It’s a longish walk from one to another (30 minutes to get there from FDR memorial – your suggested location on the Tidal Basin, and then another 30 minutes or so to actually stroll the area), far enough that only about 10 percent of the Tidal Basin crowd ever makes it to Hains Point.

HTL Travelers’ Gift Guide: 2015

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Gift time!! Just kidding — the holidays is one of the reasons we decided against the permanent nomadic lifestyle. We love evenings spent with friends and family, sipping whiskey in the warm glow of the fireplace and of course christmas tree (or as we call it — new year tree), reflection on the year past, and anticipation of new, exiting adventures. We love the coziness, the holiday parties, the pleasant errands that come with this all. And, you know what else we are super excited about? Our gift to each other this holiday season — a month long exploration of Mexico in January. We are super pumped about this. With this trip in mind, we’ve put together our 2015 HTL travelers’ Gift Guide. This list includes special items that we already own and LOVE, and a few items that would complete our travelers’ packs…in case, you know, you are thinking of getting us a gift, ahem.

Goodbye Korea: Hello Newest Adventure!

by Barun Sarkar @ Barilee Traveling

We’ve got some life-altering news (no, really). After years on end living it up in South Korea as cross-Pacific expats, we’re incredibly excited to announce that we are FINALLY living out our dreams of living in… Japan!   Since 2010, Barun has visited Japan four times on both business and leisure trips, and from the second he first arrived, he fell head over heels in love with Japan’s sophistication, development and ravishingly beautiful traditional culture. Kyoto in particular, with all its mesmerizing temples and historic sites fed into the natural tour guide in Barun, and it was settled – he would HAVE to live there at least once in his life.   Jen, with her undying love for all things edible, could not tear herself away from the trains of sushi, savoury bowls of ramen, and sizzling gyoza (fried dumplings) on her previous visits to Tokyo and Fukuoka. So when Barun confided in her with his not-so-secret plans for Japan, she clamoured aboard! After a month of real estate agents, temporary apartments and furniture hauls, we’re officially settled in – and what a spot! We’re in the district of Nipponbashi, just steps away from the bustling shopping districts of Namba, […]

Saigon at Night

by Mike @ Saigon For 91 Days

Once the sun sets, taking the suffocating heat with it, Saigon turns on the lights and lets down its hair. Students meet to play cards at coffee shops, the bars fill up with both locals and tourists, and the city's innumerable old lady brigades claim their habitual seats on the corners. Whether we were getting drunk at hotpot joints with brand new best-friends-ever, strolling along the canal with dozens of dog-walkers, or zipping around on scooters while the city lights blaze by, some of our best Saigon memories came at night.

One day in Tirana, Albania

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

We’ve spent more than one day in Tirana, Albania — three days, in fact! — and found it to be a very pleasant experience to amble between our coffee shop of choice, several green spaces in downtown area, and a few monuments and notable buildings. Tirana is not going to win any awards for the most beautiful, or historic, city in the Balkans – in fact until 1920 Tirana was little more than a village and majority of it was built post World War II in ‘socialist ugly’ style. But, there is so much youthful energy and great ambiance in the fashionable boutique cafes and restaurants  in Tirana, that we had a great time eating, drinking, and people watching through our three days here. If pressed for time, you can really see Tirana in one day – or even less. Below is how we would spend the day: 24 hours in Tirana, Albania Fill up on excellent coffee at the Mulliri Vjeter café right by the Youth Park. Grab one of the tables outside or right by the window and watch the comings and goings of stylish citizens of the capital city. Another bonus – you can catch up on the […]

East West Brewing Co: The Craft Brewery Taking On Big Beer

by Jake Hornberger @ Vietcetera

Five years ago, there were only 2,000 craft breweries up and running in the US. But by the second quarter of 2017, America proved just how hopped up it had become as it surpassed the 5,500 craft brewery mark nationwide. The threat to the “big beer” industry had become a reality. Now, as bigtime, multinational […]

Welcome to Japan! Cosplay Galore

by Barilee Traveling @ Barilee Traveling

After three weeks of running around Osaka to find an apartment and set it up, we were going a little stir crazy and needed to do some exploring. Luckily, we didn’t have to go far to feed our travel-hungry spirits, since we had moved into Osaka’s bustling district of Nipponbashi – packed with shopping, restaurants, nightlife and tourist attractions. We hopped on our bicycles for a little wandering around the ‘hood, when we almost ran right into barricades blocking off the street for a massive, shoulder-to-shoulder crowd that stretched for as far as we could see. We had stumbled upon Osaka’s anime hub of Den Den Town hosting its annual Nipponbashi Street Festa, an all-out free-for-all exhibition of the otaku subculture that worships Japanese anime and manga in all its quirky glory. Men, women, Japanese, expats, young and…slightly not as young all took part in the cosplay bonanza. Completely decked out in amazingly detailed costumes, they staked out spots on the asphalt to pose for the thousands of gawking cameras and the fans behind them, clicking away as if the cosplayers had just jumped out of a manga comic. We joined the fray of photographers, so check out some of […]

Castle Hopping in Albania

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

Is it surprising that Albania is a great destination for castle hopping? Like, really great. Albania is not a large country, and there are by no means countless historic fortresses and edifices — which means that castle sightseeing is not overwhelming, there’s no FOMO, or castle fatigue. Another huge plus – you don’t have to have a PhD in architecture or history to discern the variations of the Albanian castles — set centuries apart, these sites represent little known, but endlessly fascinating history of a country whose long road to nation state is interwoven with the storied histories of the Greek, Roman, and Ottoman empires. We knew nothing about Albania or its history before we showed up in the capital city of Tirana ready for our grand tour organized by Albania friends. Our poor knowledge of the country was not entirely our fault — Albania spent the better part of 20th century completely isolated from the rest of the world by the design of its dictator in charge, Enver Hoxha. No one in Albania knew what was happening in the world, and conversely, the world knew very little about Albania, either past or present. Albania’s communist era dictator, Enver Hoxha had his name carved into the […]
