Goes to Cambodia once... (Seriously, 24 hours in Siem Reap and we never want to leave!)

Although we’re brave eaters, we weren’t ready to eat snails in Vietnam. However, our favorite restaurant in Hanoi did an amazing vegan snail noodle soup- perfect last meal and one of the best things we ate during our time there. 🐌

The end of a beautiful day walking around Bangkok.

Big city lights, small town friendliness, and lots of dragons 🐉

Sunshine in Old Town on the last day in Hoi An ☀️

Almost ashamed to say we needed a break from Vietnamese food... ALMOST.

Eastern promises?

Fresh rolls, delicate treasures of the night market.

Starting the day right with a legendary FREAKSHAKE and a fresh juice 😍 Further evidence the exported Aussie brunch game is 💪🏽

Roti Queen 👑 We were fortunate enough to stay a few yards away from the corner where this woman sets up each night in Phang Nga. Heading to Bangkok today and we already miss her.

Sugarcane master at the Phuket weekend market🔪. It was a great few days in Old Town- now it’s time to head north.

Pad Kee Mao! Still trying to find a place that believes us when we say we want it spicy 🌶 👧🏻🧔🏻🌶

Iced Americanos are critical to survival in this heat! Grateful there are so many tasty options all over Phuket Town.

So begins our quest to eat all the Thai street food possible. Nooooooodles!

Hello Sri Lanka 🙏🏽

The most perfect Arabic coffee on our last Qatari morning.

Amsterdam street food #5: the queen of all street treats, STROOPWAFEL. 👑🙌🏽💖 sitting in the Amsterdam airport about to head to the Middle East and wishing we could have just one more of these.

We love it here for hundreds of reasons, not the least of which is that there is a PANCAKE BOAT. Is this real life?

Amsterdam street food #4: BROODJE HARING. It’s kind of nice when famous things aren’t beautiful, and bb there is just no way to make this legend look pretty. Raw herring sando with pickles and chopped onions. National dish of The Netherlands! 🇳🇱

Amsterdam street food #3: hot waffle 😍 enjoyed this in a rare beam of vondelpark sunshine.

Amsterdam street food #2: FRITES. Not exclusive to here of course, but ‘dam, they do it right. Pictured here with NO SAUCE for pure potato viewing pleasure.

Amsterdam street food vol 1: poffertjes! Tiny puffy pancakes with powdered sugar and butter, like the love child of a beignet and an American pancake 😍

MON DIEU! Burrata + 63 degree eggs + black bread and veg magic... Australian brunch done right in Paris.

#tbt Cinque Terre, under one of many gray skies that have covered us during our time in Europe. On the last leg of our time here, v happy but v ready to fly ✈️ towards sunshine.


Mini cathedral, mega memorial.

It’s a dreary night in Bantry, and we definitely have this raclette grilled cheese on our minds. Shared one the first time, went back for our own the next day 🤦🏻‍♂️🙋🏻

Meanwhile, in Connemara...

300 million+ years in the making 🙌🏽

The road less traveled.

weeping window welcoming.

#tbt to this picturesque af park in Alicante, perfect for a shady stroll on a sunny day.

Tiki freaks 🍹
