Sunday Snapshot | Kiss from a Clownfish | Andaman and Nicobar Islands

A Cruising Couple Sunday Snapshot

These fishes easily get scared off. But the little one right there was daring enough to plant a kiss on my mask. I guess they have grown used to the visitors from outside. I guess they have grown used to our funny faces. They’ve decided to spread the love. You can meet them in Havelock, […]

Sunday Snapshot | Sea Turtle | Galapagos Islands


The Galapagos Islands is high on our destination bucket list. While Casey has made it to Ecuador twice, we’ve yet to make it to the islands themselves. This stunning picture of a sea turtle casually gliding by is compliments of Dan’s sister, Sarah, who recently spent six months scuba diving (with a bit of studying […]

The Gili Islands: A Guide to the Magical Stepping Stones of Lombok

Bali To Gili Meno Fast Boat

The Gili Islands are known for being some of the most beautiful islands in Indonesia, having managed to preserve their pristine beaches and authenticity despite growing tourism to Bali and Lombok. And by authenticity, I mean the only form of land transportation is horse carriage or bicycle! Ah-mazing, especially after living in Taiwan where I’m […]

Padangbai Barong Dance: An Exorcism Ceremony

We weren’t expecting to see spiritual warfare when we went to Padangbai. Our main purpose for visiting the small fishing village was actually just to check out the action below the water: reef sharks, manta rays, turtles, and general ocean scenes seemingly taken straight from Finding Nemo. And while we were fortunate to experience the […]

Apo Island

El Nido: Paradise In Palawan Part 2

Beautiful View

While our quick stop in Sabang and the Underground River was lovely, it was really El Nido that resulted in our jaw-dropping, heart racing, ‘I can’t believe somewhere this beautiful actually exists’ ramblings. A harrowing six-hour van ride away from Sabang or Puerto Princesa, El Nido comprises 45 islands at the very northernmost part of […]

Road Trip: LA Monterey Santa Sur

We have been irreconcilably behind on our blog. No matter how hard we try, we really just can’t seem to keep everyone up-to-date on the daily occurrences of our lives. So we’re going to do a quick catch-up of our Road Trip in three Californian cities and one infamous highway in our attempt to get […]
