    Ninh Binh’s Hidden Gem, Van Long

    Location: Vietnam

    We initially heard about Van Long from a TV show; ‘Life Without Limits: Vietnam‘, that was on the BBC before we set off on our travels. When we started planning our rough route through Vietnam we were too intrigued not to have it on our list as Van Long is a relatively undiscovered gem in the Ninh Binh Province that is also known as ‘Ha Long Bay on land’ to most.

    What and Where to eat in Hanoi

    Location: Hanoi, Vietnam

    When we first arrived in Hanoi it was a little daunting venturing out in to busy streets and knowing what is good food. With the help of foursquare and recommendations from other travellers we found some amazing meals. Being our first stop in Vietnam we learnt a lot about Vietnamese food and some of the meals that have become our staples while traveling. Here is what you should be eating while in Vietnam and where you should eat in Hanoi.

    The Hanoi Round-up!

    Location: Hanoi, Vietnam

    We have just come to the end of our time in Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi! What a way to start our trip, plunged right in the deep-end and had a pretty big culture shock, but we have fallen in love with this city. Mental traffic and all. We spent about about a week in Hanoi (with a few day trips) and got to see nearly everything that we wanted to do.

    How To Plan A City Break

    If you have been following us for a while you may know that we love a city break. As we both work, it can be hard to get time off work or find the time to travel long distance. So for us, city breaks are ideal! Not only do you get to see new little bits of the world but you also get to experience the hustle and bustle of a city other than your own.

    There are so many cities that are on our wish-list (Prague, Vienna and Amsterdam to name a few) and luckily for us the UK is a short distance away from many European cities that don’t cost an arm and a leg to get to. City breaks further afield however mean that you need a few extra days to explore which isn’t always possible! So the likes of New York are special city breaks that we rarely get to enjoy. We are trying to tick-off the ever growing list by exploring, drinking and excessively eating in all these new places and are slowly making our way through. Here are some of our tips for planning the perfect city break.

    So you’ve done all the tourist attractions in New York City? You’ve walked round Central Park, visited the MET, have been to the Top of the Rock and are wanting to do something a little more off the beaten track? Look no further. As this was our fourth and fifth time to this amazing city we wanted to see some different things and not the usual tourist stuff. Some of these options may still be quite touristy but they are not up there with the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building thats for sure!

    As this was our third and fourth times visiting New York we wanted to find a few new places that were off the beaten track. After extensive research and stalking on Instagram we found a food market and knew that we had to go! Smorgasborg is a food market in Brooklyn that has two locations, Williamsburg on Saturdays and Prospect Park on Sundays. We visited the Prospect Park site. AND. IT. WAS. GREAT!
