Electronics for digital nomads

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads. Clayton from Spartan Traveler quit his job over a year ago in San Francisco and has been traveling the world ever since.

Surreal “postcards” from Google Earth

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads. Sometimes even Google makes our world look even crazier than it actually is, as evidenced by these surreal and quirky screenshots of Google Earth collected by Clement Valla. In his own words: "I collect Google Earth images. I discovered strange moments where the illusion of…

Vegetable vendors, Hanoi-style

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads. One of the fun things to see in Vietnam (and elsewhere in Asia) is how incredibly piled-up the bicycles and motorcycles are, packed high with whatever vendors are selling. During Lunar new year, people were transporting big kumquat trees across town on bicycles and motorbikes,…

Astronaut sheets, for the space dreamer in you

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads. We've posted about tweeting from space, but what about sleeping in a spacesuit?

While I'm currently living in Ho Chi Minh City, I've been trying to visit other places in Vietnam, such as the beachside towns of…

Chicken in a Soda Can

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads. Another interesting chicken dish from Vietnam: Ga Tan. Literally meaning "fall-off-the-bone chicken", they are simmered in a variety of medicinal herbs (a recipe originally from China) and said to be good for your health. I found this one in Hanoi, but they are not always…

Scenes from Saigon

Following some of the Instagramming series we posted on Portugal and London, here are some scenes from Saigon, Vietnam, where I'm currently based for about four months. Hope you enjoy!   For more photography of Saigon and other parts of HCMC, see my full 40+…

Possibly the best chicken rice stand ever?

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads. During my travels through Southeast Asia, it's always fun to see the way vendors serve their foods. From artful mounds of fruit to piles of shrimp, lined up meticulously in a glass case to add to soup to many other edible treats, there is no…
