Forks and Jets

The true story of a couple or amateur foodie travelogues going around the world


At first, a year seems like a long time to travel. I can see the whole world, you think. We got out a calendar and started figuring out where we’ll be, week by week, and we started losing some countries. New Zealand and Africa will have to wait, lazing about the Cook Islands will be planned in the next go-around. 28 countries in one year is only about two weeks a country. It’s kind of like having 28 two-week vacations, only we will be building our immersion into other cultures with each new country instead of going back home to work. I smell homesick coming on.

Our final itinerary is below, in order. We’re using a Round-The-World ticket from OneWorld to get us there.


  • England
  • Scotland
  • Wales
  • Ireland — Fail!
  • India
  • Thailand
  • Laos
  • Vietnam
  • Cambodia
  • Malaysia
  • Indonesia
  • Hong Kong
  • China
  • Taiwan — Fail!
  • Japan

    Hey! Enjoyed hanging with you guys in Yungshuo! Im in Vietnam now… Got a culinary tip for you!
    Try the ‘Cha ca’ in Hanoi. Just had it then! it’s bloody awesome! You get a large skillet of grilled trout, a plate of veg and some rice paper and then you just put them all together!
    I had it a the ‘Gecko cafe,’ Which is just outside the old quarter. Anyway, thanks for the Gan’s Noodle tip in Yungshuo! They were delicious!

    Safe Travel eating!!
