Coffee comes with a cookie in Australia, just because. Kirra Beach, Australia
Gin Fizz and Harbor Bridge
Excellent cocktail near the Sydney Opera house.

Fish with Beetroot Salad
First of many excellent meals at Blue Lagoon Beach Resort, Nacula Island Fiji
Marinated Tropical Chicken
...with coconut because it just makes everything better. Nacula Island, Fiji
Worst Veggie Tempura
A late night desperation meal after our return from Nikko to Tokyo. Mostly onion. Lots of grease.
Katsu Bento on Train
Beautifully wrapped and arranged, these are pretty great train meals.
In Tokyo. Makes Keegan happy for breakfast.
As part of a nice Itzakaya lunch on a super hot day in Nara, Japan
At Team Borderless Labs in Tokyo. Magical imagery and experience.
Housemade tofu near our third hotel in Tokyo.
Nara, Japan. Super fresh ingredients. Tasty tempura. Ice cold Asahi.
From a place which really only has udon noodles.
Top grade beef which you cook at your table. Excellent restaurant in Osaka - Tsugyuru
Yellowtail, Salmon and Grouper which we made at a hosted experience on our last night in Japan.
Incredibly fresh and perfectly cooked ahi steak in Hanoi.
Hanoi Old Fashioned
The ever so elusive decent cocktail, with a tropical lime garnish.
Hidden Gems. Super cool cafe in Hanoi
Keegan and I discovered this vegetarian buffet at a Buddhist restaurant near Hanoi train station before our train to Da Nang.
Cat Ba Crab
One of the more exotic things on our Cat Ba cruise. These were stuffed with shrimp and rice. Some of our fellow travelers weren't keen on the accusing eyes.
You had to work pretty hard to get the meat and avoid the shell of these. In Da Nang.
Sometimes, you just need some fresh veggies. We went to a nice upscale restaurant in downtown Da Nang, and John gave in to this western lure.
Steak in the sky bar
On our last night in Da Nang, we sought out a recommended roof top steak house from which to see the dragon show. The dinner was good (though Keegan's steak was too fatty and had to be sent back), but the musical act featured a shrill, smarmy female singer from the Phillipines butchering rock classics at far too loud a volume.
Our Hoi An food tour guide, Harry, explaining how these beautiful Udon noodles are made.
Another stop on Harry's tour taught us how bean sprouts are grown in sand over night, then washed and sent to market.
A favorite on the food tour was the Bahn My (Bon Mi?) which features fresh baguettes with pate, veggies and meat of choice.

Sticky Rice Pudding
Our final stop on the Hoi An food tour took us to a home factory where this sesame sticky rice has been made for 70 years - available only here.
On our first night in Siem Reap, Keegan went straight for the most Cambodian dish possible, and loved it.
Rice for Amok
The rice that accompanied Keegan's Amok.
New Leaf Cappuccino
We loved the New Leaf Eatery in Siem Reap, which had delicious breakfasts, great coffee, and a commitment to sustainability.
New Leaf Eatery's take on the full English breakfast. Potatoes were particularly yummy.
We splurged on dinner at Sokkhak River Lounge in Siem Reap. A highly rated place (which had Cambodian and French dishes, and red wine), which deserved its ratings.
Even the airport food was pretty great in Cambodia. Here was a farewell breakfast choice.
Hawaiian Rice in Pineapple
One of many dishes we enjoyed at Veed View on the beach in Ko Lanta, Thailand.
Keegan didn't expect a whole fish, but loved this tropical dish at Veed View on Kho Lanta.
Nuts with that
Our hotel bar at Laguna Beach Resort in Kho Lanta had very limited food choices during low season, but served these complimentary peanuts with curry spice, basil and mint that we just loved.
One night in Kho Lanta, we went to a very cool place (Where Else) sat down and looked at the menu, and realized that 3/4 of us wanted burgers. The place was deserted, so we had appetizers and then headed for the best burgers on the island at the Koala Bar. Laura, the 4th of us, went for a 1/2 rack of the ribs. Apparently Aussie portions are bigger than even American.
A very very tasty "dessert" martini, served at the elegant Mozzarella restaurant in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia.
The beach bars in Kuta serve the same beer - Bintang, including the excellent lemon and organge Radlers - but brand it with their own cozies. We liked the retro sentiment of this one.
Kuta is very tailored to the Aussie tourists, and apparently this is a favorite breakfast dish.
Artistic Acai Bowl
Naomi ordered this beautiful bowl at a local cafe / hostel near our first hotel in Kuta.
...and she liked it!
