Where Hanoi resembled a large town, with its alleyways offering fresh beer and any type of street food imaginable, Saigon is much like other Asian cities I’d visited. It was the last stop on a three month jaunt, including a whole month in Vietnam. While I probably loved Vietnam more than any other country we […]

I’ve been to five countries and countless cities this year, eating my way through the best food as I went. I think with my stomach at all times and when you flip through the photos from my trip, it shows. Since giving up dairy last November, I’ve had more limited options than I did in […]
Inspired by the recent post of my friend Lisa at LL World Tour on her favorite Chicago eats, I’ve compiled a long list of my favorite places to eat in my hometown of Atlanta. I still find this city to be an under-the-radar destination for most people and when I was working on my AFAR […]
Recovering from Travel Days by caroline-eubanks featuring a hydrating mask It took me over two days to get home from Malaysia, starting at 6 am in Kuching when we left our hotel on a Wednesday, taking me on five flights and four time zones before finally arriving in my own bed around 2 pm […]
I have two roles: writer and blogger. I’ve written extensively about what I do as a freelance writer, but rarely talk about being a travel blogger, mainly because so many of my colleagues have summed it up perfectly. I’ve been part of this community for over 5 years, which has brought me new friends and […]
After the great success of last year’s post and giveaway, it’s that time again: Caroline’s Favorite Things 2014! While I still use and love the products I featured for 2013, I’ve come up with even more brand new things to get for the traveler in your life or for yourself. And again, there’s something for […]
I tend to err on the side of hesitation, wary of attractions that claim to provide visitors with the full cultural experience in a park setting. They tend to resemble Epcot more than the place they’re supposed to represent, little more than caricatures. Hilltribe villages in northern Thailand immediately come to mind. But this is […]
If you saw the last few editions of Travel Writing Round Up, welcome back! A lot are repeats from last month, but new posts are denoted with stars. I have checked all the links to ensure that they are still valid, but please let me know if I have missed one. Feel free to shoot me an […]
I scrambled to find the right amount of money to pay for my brunch. I pulled out blue bills from my most recent trip and joked with the server about having more foreign money in my wallet than American money. I told her about my visit to Malaysia and she replied, “I’d never go there […]
Kuching, Malaysia is known as “Cat City” for the Malay word kucing. While I didn’t see stray cats roaming around in the Borneo city like I did in Croatia and Turkey, you could see that they sure love their felines. Upon pulling into the parking lot of our hotel, we saw a large group of tourists […]
Blessed. It’s a word I’m sick of seeing on Instagram, but on this day, it’s true. It’s the day I reflect on the good in my life, on the great people I’m surrounded by and the opportunities I’ve been lucky enough to have. I create these Thankful Lists every year since I was 15 and […]
Like much of Southeast Asia, Malaysia is a very inexpensive country for travelers. The capital city of Kuala Lumpur is a hub for most people visiting the country. You can stay in a guesthouse for under $10 USD per night and eat for even less. Tourist attractions can range in price, but are generally less […]
