Throttle Jockey Diaries Part 1

Hey there everybody, I don’t know if you heard, but apparently some guy named AJ has been posting loads of cool pictures and awesome posts to the blog lately, so I thought I’d try and do the same today to keep him on his toes. Today I’m writing to you from Hoi An, a city […]

Two Weeks on the Road: Hồ Chí Minh to Đà Nẵng

I was unquestionably nervous. I’ve dodged cars on a motor bike through Phnom Penh, traversed highways through northern Thailand, and weaved by the endless potholes plaguing the roads of Cambodia, but Ho Chi Minh was undoubtedly something new. Complete and utter madness. We were trapped in a city of 8.2 million people with miles of […]

NHA Trang to Hoi An: The Untouched Coastline of Vietnam

NHA Trang reminded me of Honolulu, Hawaii. Hotel sky rises bordered the beach. The beach itself was filled with tourists, umbrellas, and lounge chairs. I was surprised by how clean the beach was. No trash on the beach or in the water. To add to the cleanness the water was crystal clear with visibility up […]

Saigon to Da Lat: Our Trip in the South of Vietnam

When we arrived in Vietnam I had 2 goals, find a motorcycle and eat. Buying motorcycles in Vietnam was one of our main attractions to the country. We had heard the road are well maintained (this has actually proven to be true) and scenery along the way is one of a kind. We began our […]

No Prior Experience Neccesary

The alarm went off at 3:40 AM. Alex, AJ, and I got up out of our beds, packed our things silently in the quiet dark hostel room, and quickly walked downstairs and out the door to the alley where our bikes were parked. It was quiet outside, or at least as quiet as it possibly […]

Eating Our Way Through Ho Chi Minh City

Food. The food in Ho Chi Minh was without a doubt the best food I have had on the trip thus far. The vast majority of our time in Vietnam was spent wandering the streets in search of the best street food we could find. Our hunt began searching for Bánh mì. Bánh mì literally means bread in Vietnamese […]

Roadtrip 2016: Vietnam

Friends and family, thanks for checking back in to the blog! It’s been a while since I’ve written something for you, but today I was inspired by a big event for us here in Ho Chi Minh City. The big news? …We got motorcycles! 3 of the finest two wheeled stallions money can buy, known […]

Volcanos in Dieng to Beaches in Pangandaran, Our Final Stops in Indonesia

A Look Back at Indonesia

Indonesia… What a place, guys. It’s the type of country where you can see landscapes you thought only existed in National Geographic, and then down the road 100 feet you can find trash piles as large as a city block. It’s a place where you can feel more at home than anywhere else in the […]

Yogyakarta and a Treacherous Decent to Langse Cave

After our quick stint in Jakarta we hopped on a night train to Yogyakarta which is located in south eastern Java. We were told that Yogyakarta is one of the cultural epicenters of Java which, I could kinda see as there were many temples scattered through out the area. The scenery, once you were out […]
