great barrier reef

My experience snorkeling The Great Barrier Reef was the stuff dreams are made of. I honestly don’t feel this post will do the day justice, but I hate to say “you had to be there” in a travel post. Haha. So, I will do my best to show just how awesome this day was…complete with pretty pictures and videos and some fun tips! And if you find yourself traveling to Cairns to check out The Great Barrier Reef – you’ll… Read more »

This month’s travel guest post is taking us to Mexico! The author, Andrew Tjong, just came back from San Miguel de Allende and had a magnificent time there. He’s originally from the Netherlands but is doing his MBA in China… and currently residing in Taiwan. He’s quite the seasoned traveler! Andrew has been to San Miguel de Allende a couple of times (most recently he was there for the entire summer) and has now written an ebook on all that… Read more »

Tokyo Street food

Guest post by: Jeffrey Barroga It invigorates your soul, calms your weary morale, and widens your perspective in life: travel is one of life’s pleasures that seems to enrich your entire being as you do it more and more. Unfortunately, as much as there is to be gained by traveling, it’s also one of life’s more expensive pleasures. But that doesn’t mean that you have to limit yourself to traveling just locally. Don’t get me wrong, there are so many… Read more »

Julia of Philly with Fjallraven isn’t a stranger to the travel guest post section of my blog, she was one of my very first guest posters with the amazing “9 Reasons Why You Should Visit Denmark.” But Julia is also an expert on all things… Read more »

sleeping koalas

Hopefully, no one is tired of koala photos just yet, haha. I honestly think one of my favorite things about being in Australia is that I have the chance to get close to koalas whenever I like! And this post will be sharing photos from the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium & Wild Life Sydney Zoo…so, there’s going to be a couple more koala photos! When my husband and I first arrived in Sydney we bought a Sydney Attraction Pass that… Read more »

QVB BUILDING

I’ve always been told nothing in life is free. And that is still technically true for the “I’m Free” tours. However, it is a pretty neat concept, in my opinion. The way it works is there is no set price, you just show up at the time the tour starts, and it lasts for about 3 hours. At the end of the tour you decide how much it was worth and then pay your tour guide accordingly. Pretty neat, right?… Read more »

The Blue Lagoon in Iceland

Iceland is a country that has risen very high on my list of countries I would like to see one day…thanks to one of my best friends, Shannon of “A Blonde and a Brew,” having visited this astonishing country. Her tales of magical lagoons, gorgeous national parks and sampling puffin have undoubtedly piqued my curiosity for this country. It also doesn’t hurt that this where Jon Snow lives…or at least where is home is filmed. (For all you A Song… Read more »

Dinner with a Geisha

“What was your favorite experience in Japan?” I’ve been getting this question quite frequently recently. Which really isn’t very easy to answer. There are a million things I loved about Japan…so, I figured it would be a bit easier to break it down into tours and places I visited. I also can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am that readers are reaching out to tell me my blog has inspired them to visit Japan! And some are… Read more »

22 Things That Surprised Me About Japan (as an American)

I know I’ve said this a million times, but Japan is an absolutely amazing country. If you ever have the opportunity to visit, DO NOT hesitate. Living in Tokyo has been one of the best experiences of my life, and I would move back in a heartbeat and stay there forever. It is my absolute favorite place I have been to, hands down. (And my husband seconds this!) I know there are many preconceived notions about what Japan is like,… Read more »

Fushimi Inari Shrine (伏見稲荷大社, Fushimi Inari Taisha)

Out of all the things to see in Kyoto, Fushimi Inari Shrine was by far the most recommended sight to me in Kyoto. Everyone said to I had to see it…and I mean everyone! From random folks I met at the gym in Tokyo, to the person whose apartment I was renting through Airbnb..there were a wide variety of people saying it was a must-see. And Fushimi Inari Shrine did not disappoint! Fushimi Inari has more than 10,000 torii gates… Read more »

The Liberty Bell

Happy 4th of July! It’s weird not being in the United States to watch the fireworks and parades with my friends and family this year. I spent my 4th of July weekend this year climbing Mount Fuji! And I’m very happy to report – I survived! Haha. I’ll be sharing photos of that experience this week.   But anywho, last year, I did get to celebrate America’s Independence Day like no other in Philadelphia. So, this post is taking a… Read more »

Robot Restaurant Tokyo

If you find yourself in Tokyo someday and only have time to do one touristy thing, I highly recommend you visit Robot Restaurant! It is the most inexplicably crazy (in a good way) performance I have ever seen. This isn’t an actual restaurant, really, as the name implies. It’s a robot show where snack food and various drinks are served. It’s honestly a bit hard to describe it, and I don’t even think my photos do it justice. It’s a… Read more »

Perhaps Bananas

France is a country I have always wanted to visit, but I have yet to make the journey to. Fortunately, this month’s travel guest blogger, Mallory of Perhaps Bananas, was just there on her honeymoon. And she’s sharing some incredible photos of her favorite spot in France – Versailles! Mallory had quite the whirlwind trip, and she actually just moved from Seoul, South Korea to Buffalo, New York. Following her journey has been so fun, and you’ll definitely want to… Read more »

muir woods

…that is the question! With all the traveling my husband and I do, we are always looking for ways to maximize our experience and minimize stress when traveling. Navigating your way through a new country or even your own country can be fun, but sometimes it’s nice to sit back, relax, and let someone else do the navigating. One of the ways we do this is by booking tours. (Usually through Viator.) Having someone guide you through a city or… Read more »

Tokyo Tower

Wow! This weekend we kicked our exploring skills into high gear! We saw and experienced so much these past few days, that I will need to break it into several posts. Which leads me to an announcement regarding Have Clothes, Will Travel…starting this week, I will no longer be publishing on Monday, Wednesday & Friday. I will instead be publishing on all week days! So, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday there will be a brand new post on Have… Read more »

Carousel Bar & Lounge - NOLA

  New Orleans is known for many things, but one of the first things that always comes to mind is how wonderful the food and drinks are. Anytime we asked for a recommendation for a bar or restaurant in New Orleans, the answer was always, “Well, there isn’t a bad place to eat or drink here!” With that being said, there were several spots that really stood out above the rest for us, and offered some truly unique experiences! 1.)… Read more »

The amount of things to see and do (and eat!) in Rome seems to be never ending. My husband and I spent two weeks wandering the streets of Rome last spring, and I feel as though we only saw a fraction of what Rome had to offer. I’ve covered the more famous tours and sights in previous posts. In this post I will take a final look at some of the smaller, quirkier tours we took and some of my… Read more »

Our little, whirlwind trip up to New York City was nothing short of an unforgettable adventure. There are so many things to do and see in this city, sleeping seems like a silly waste of time (and as the title suggests, we hardly slept at all). I went to New York with my friends for a few days, after they were so kind as to help me move into my apartment. But before I talk about New York, I want… Read more »
