So, getting paid to speak at a conference in which you get a free trip to Anchorage is pretty awesome.  Getting to have your husband come along when you are 6 months pregnant with your first is a HUGE bonus!  Luckily, I have a friend with celiac who lives in Anchorage, and she had amazing suggestions and we did our best to try them all!

I always pack plenty of food for flights, especially long ones like this.  But I was pleasantly surprised by the options Alaska Airlines provided.  Check out these gluten free, vegan and kosher options on Alaska Airlines!...

Hanoi is a large and fast paced city of nearly 8 million.  There is something for everyone and as with nearly every other city, I could have spent more time in Hanoi.  We hit the major tourist things, but there was more I would have liked to see, like a showing of a water puppet theatre and the Imperial Citadel.

Sorry for the very short Hue post.  I was not feeling the best and missed out on most of the food and!  So I don't have any food really, I just had a mango smoothie and some veggie fried rice.

Hoi An is an amazing UNESCO World Heritage site! This is a beautiful town that is like stepping back in time.  Similar to Siem Reap, Cambodia (another of my favorite cities), you’ll want to just save some time to wander around.

I am not going to go into the history of Vietnam, because frankly, I don’t know enough to do it justice.  But the history is one of the reasons we were drawn to Vietnam.  Both my husband and I were born after the war ended, and just like in Cambodia, we wanted to get up close and personal to the historical place.  Our time in Saigon was very history orient...

We really had a great and relaxing time in the beach town of Nha Trang. We were only there one night, however, the night train we had taken got us there in time for the sunrise, and we didn’t leave the following day until nearly 8pm.  What did we do? Ate, hung out on the beach, ate, checked out a mud bath spa, ate, slept, hung out on the beach, ate.  This...

World Heritage site Halong Bay had been the city I was the most excited to visit – I couldn’t wait to see the towering limestone structures jutting out of the water.  Unfortunately, everyone else ALSO wants to see Halong Bay and it is becoming extremely touristy.  We had a water view from our hotel and nearly the entire water front was a construction zone...

We only spent one night in Cần Thơ, it was a good stopping point between Sihanoukville and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).  For a unique experience, we spent the night in a rural homestay as part of our tour.  The homestay was really designed for tour groups, but in a rural part of the town and in what felt very home-like (this is a city of 1.2 million, so it w...

Who is G Adventures?  An AMAZING tour company, is who!  At the time we took our trip, I was 33 and had been to 20 countries.  I was diagnosed with celiac in 2011 and we managed to do Ireland shortly after my diagnosis - granted - being in an English speaking country with an awareness of celiac disease made that much easier.  But I like a challenge.  So, I...
