Charlie and Steve's Excellent Adventure

Tasting the world one meal at a time

Month / July 2015

While you were working – Broken Hearts, Hoi An, Vietnam

 The chorus of the Hoi An market choir rises over baskets of herbs and small little pots burning incense in the morning, the cries are raucous and insistent but lacking in urgency; it’s not so much a demand but an introduction. There may be a formidable army before us but there’s breakfast behind, good luck […]

Gluttony Expedition – Slow, Hoi An, Vietnam

 Nothing to do and nowhere to go, we’ve been yearning to say that for a few days now as this sleep in time has no finish time we can determine. There is one thing that must happen today of course and that’s to top up on our junkie fix with another bowl of Cao Lau, […]

While you were working – A Deserved Beer, Hoi An, Vietnam

 The conversation is a common one, the one with other travellers that inevitably veers towards recent and impending travels. And so the story for us has contained the essential probings about Vietnam, food, sights, scams and places. On this questioning line of discovery there is one element that contains little inquisition, the question of another […]

While you were working – Gypsie Blessing, Kon Tum, Vietnam

[…]

While you were working – A Bit of Bling, Buon Ma Thuot, Vietnam

 The screaming public row that was yesterday simmers still, there’s no need for a trip to the lawyer for divorce proceedings, just a trip to the mechanic that we’re calling a counsellor nowadays. This is the best counsellor ever, it turns out all along that all Rob needed was something shiny to wear out to […]

What you’d rather be seeing – San Telmo, Buenos Aires

 In March 2015 we were in Buenos Aires, Argentina and I spent an afternoon in the grungy suburb of San Telmo focusing on photography and in particular portraiture.  Due to all the top summary posts of South America at the time I didn’t publish these images. We’re on the home stretch of this trip and […]

Gluttony Expedition – Room for Two, Nha Trang, Vietnam

 It’s time to pay the bill, but we don’t have any idea how much we’re to be paying and only a slight idea what we’re paying for; we’re sure we ordered something with beef in it but was there beef in dinner? Yousef hands over some notes and a young boy stands stuck to the […]
