Me piggies having fun. We have had some issues (Flooded room) but we are enjoying our anniversary trip.  20 years.  Changed rooms in the middle of the night. Beautiful place, very nice staff.  Looking forward to a big beautiful new room tomorrow. Wish you were here.  #turksandcaicos #islandlife #caribbean #anniversary #beach #ocean #caribbeansea #gracebayclub #vacation #blueskies #gonebamboo #snorkel #beachbum #sandandsea #sunshine #tan #islands #provo #providenciales #gracebay #innycsite #getch #cocktails #food #caicoscays #conch #thebelongers #tci

Morning from our temporary new room. Jacuzzi right out front! | Awoke in the middle of the night to find all 1700 feet of our room under 2” of water. The water heater was gushing 💦! Better view. Small room. More news later.  #vacation #caribbean #cocktails #blueskies #getch #beachbum #sunshine #gracebay #tci #snorkel #caribbeansea #conch #islandlife #provo #innycsite #anniversary #gracebayclub #gonebamboo #thebelongers #beach #ocean #turksandcaicos #tan #islands #food #providenciales #caicoscays #sandandsea

After a strange 4th of July, I began to pack for our 20th Anniversary trip to Turks & Caicos.  I pulled out my passport and wouldn’t you know it, it was expired.  In 32 hours I was to be on a plane to the Caribbean.  FUCK!  After almost having a heart attack.  I called around did some research and ended up the first in line at the NYC Passport Office, 4:45 am yesterday morning, in the rain making sure I could get a rush passport.  I was out at 11:30am with a passport.  Dam!  Today I again woke up early to catch an 8:30am plane out of JFK.  And here I am.  WOW!  #turksandcaicos #islandlife #caribbean #anniversary #beach #ocean #caribbeansea #gracebayclub #vacation #blueskies #gonebamboo #snorkel #beachbum #sandandsea #sunshine #tan #islands #provo #providenciales #gracebay #innycsite #getch #cocktails #food #caicoscays #conch #thebelongers #tci

While NO RESERVATIONS were required to view this beautiful @never1959 mural, we patiently waited for our turn to #photograph it and pay homage to the late @anthonybourdain  In my eyes he was to chefs what Captain Jack Sparrow is to adventure, and brought an unapologetic #poetry to his words like #charlesbukowski #bmwgs #bmwg650gs #bmwriders #advrider #adventure #gs #g650gs #travel #santamonica #wilshireblvd #california #californialove #fallenheroes #nosoupforyou #mural #kitchenconfidential #thelayover #boneinthethroat #gonebamboo #suicideprevention #noreservations #partsunknown #leshalles #miseenplace #beautifyearth #streetart #anthonybourdain

So good,  Bourdain was more than a great chef, traveler, and television personality.  He was a great writer.  This book really took me on a journey and had me on the edge of my seat.  If you’re into crime novels, I highly recommend it.  #anthonybourdain #gonebamboo #crimenovel #fiction #mafia #goodreads

Rather fitting that I found this book on an island and his introduction said he wrote it by the beach. Very entertaining read. He wanted to write a sociopath beach book - and he did. One of these days, I want to go bamboo too, well  at least for a longer period of time.

It's been an odd few days since the news of Tony Bourdain's passing. Strange to think that there will be no more wise cracks to enjoy, experiences to hear, and self-depreciating autobiography to read. And even if none of that was to be anymore, the world would have been a better, warmer place with him in it. We at PV want to extend our support, for whatever it's worth, to his family, friends and anyone that holds his work in high esteem, as we do. While we are currently smack in the middle of our year reading exclusively women authors, we'd like to take a break here and re-name some of Bourdain's work as our collective #PourOfTheWeek. You can find more fiction and nonfiction from this great man, but these are the ones we've worked through thus far. Each is a true joy to experience, from the witty and bloody pages of his crime novels (GONE BAMBOO being a personal favorite) to his poignant essays on traveling, eating, politics within the kitchen, and beyond. This week, if you find a few moments to revisit your favorites or have never had the pleasure of reading any of Bourdain's work, please peel back some of these pages and, as Tony would have said, devour gratefully. He will be sorely missed. Safe travels, Tony. #pourvida #amreading #boneinthroat #gonebamboo #kitchenconfidential #thenastybits #acookstour #anthonybourdainrip #noreservations #partsunknown

Time is a crazy thing. Always been a fan of @anthonybourdain and still dream about the garlicky feast I had at the random little seafood shop in Hong Kong validated by a pic of Tony on the wall... But I just finally finished reading #kitchenconfidential this week and only got his novel #gonebamboo a couple days ago. Excited as ever to read it now... #RIPTony

This man showed me how to cook, live life, see the world, and question conventional wisdom. I will never forget this amazing man who taught me life lessons as he traveled the world.

A big shout out to the passing of one the greats. Phenomenal visual storyteller, author and chef, Anthony Bourdain. “Parts Unknown” on CNN set the bar for docu-storytelling and imagery. And I will miss not only his irreverent humor but the art he created. RIP, Tony. 
Have a good weekend everyone.

Kitchen Confidential was mandatory freshman reading 📖when I was in Culinary school in Charleston SC 20 years ago. I’m absolutely at s loss for words for the loss of Anthony Bourdain.

Because the food world will truly miss you ....

Shocked & saddened by the loss of this icon today. 
Had the honor of meeting @anthonybourdain twice in my life & was floored by his ability to articulate all things food related. 
Kitchen Confidential is still in my top 5 reads and truly speaks to the subculture of the industry I love. 
What Kerouac was to beatniks, Bourdain is to knife wielding, fire taming badasses everywhere. 
RIP AB

Discovered #AnthonyBourdain as a novelist before I knew he was a TV star. Typically this is an annual beach vacation read, today I’ll read this along the banks of the #ChippewaRiver #GoneBamboo
A lot of what has shaped me as the human I am today was given to me by my brother. He handed me my first book by Anthony Bourdain and I was hooked from the beginning. I read all of his books, kept up with his travels and his cooking. I carried this book around with me when he was filming Parts Unknown in Nashville just in case I ran into him. Though we had different views on vegetarian/veganism his views on life inspire me and countless others to push beyond boundaries and to have zero regrets in the process. Thank you @anthonybourdain for the inspiration. #anthonybourdain #gonebamboo

Anthony Bourdain was an inspiration to us all. His books are filled with wisdom that I still carry with me today. 
Bourdain documented his life to allow others the chance to see the beauty and deliciousness that this world has to offer. He made traveling food shows not only informative, but also fun to watch. I currently still have plans to visit Singapore next year strictly based off of Bourdain classifying it as the steamed dumpling capitol of the world. 
His Les Halles recipe for short rib French dip is one of the greatest dishes I’ve ever made. Thank you Uncle Tony.

"Travel isn't always pretty. It isn't always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that's okay. The journey changes you it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind." Thank you for taking us along on the adventure, Anthony Bourdain.#rip#anthonybourdain #kitchenconfidential #cookstour #gonebamboo #RIP#restinpeace

Immensely saddened and shaken to learn that one of the coolest of all time has exited the building...
Shedding some heavy tears reading the news this morning at the loss of the man who’s words first painted cooking as the career for me. 
My walls are supported with every one of your books. I’ve always felt your witty wisdom there to support me- on paper, on television and online. Thank you for everything.
Shine on you crazy diamond<3

My favorite chef/writer Anthony Bourdain has died. I have read and owned every book he wrote at some point in my 20 years of professional cooking. Many times it was Chef Bourdain's perspective on food, cooking and life that helped me keep going. As a professional cook, Bourdain helped me to believe that I could write and have a voice too. You will be greatly missed. Today's production and service is for you. Rest in peace Chef. #anthonybourdain #partsunknown #kitchenconfidential #acookstour #boneinthethroat #typhoidmary #gonebamboo #getjiro #mediumraw #anthonybourdainappetites #miseenplace #professionalcooking

You were the guy that turned me from home cook to professional chef... As sad as I am I’m equally as mad. You showed us dregs, addicts, dirtbags and alcoholics that not only could we find refuge and salvation in food but transcend addiction and achieve Rockstar status. And now you quit. But that’s me being selfish. I don’t claim to understand your darkness. I only say thank you and Godspeed chef.

For those who are into loyalty games (hotel points, airline miles etc.) there is something called «aspirational redemptions.» It is when members of different loyalty programs save up their points or miles to redeem for a business class ticket or a first class ticket or in hotel loyalty programs, redeem points for famous and/or expensive luxurious properties. As a member of IHG program for a few years I’ve had a few of them but the one on the top of my list was Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort. Opened in 2012 it is a hillside resort comprising of 37 hectares inspired nearby temples was designed by Bill Bensley. I’m not much of a resort person but this place was beautiful and just going for a walk around the resort was a great experience.

My Khe beach in Danang is a beautiful 32 km long sandy beach. It used to be visited by American troops during the Vietnam War for R&R. Today it is one of Vietnam’s most popular tourist attraction and in 2016 Danang received 5,5 million visitors. While many tourists go straight to Hoi An, many stay for the beach and several luxury hotels and resorts has opened in Danang and new ones are opening all the time.

Some of the photos from the fireworks display from Team Austria and Team Vietnam. Thanks to a friend that recommended me where to stay the show could be enjoyed with a front row view from the comfort of my hotel room. It was a fantastic show!

I arrived in Danang on 30 April, 2017 which is a national holiday. It is the Liberation Day/Reunification day and unbeknownst to me was also the start of the Danang International Fireworks Festival. The festival was separated into five nights with eleven teams displaying their show around the theme of «Shining with Marble Mountain» and the event was separated into five elements of the mountain, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wind. The festival started on 30 april and continued into 24 June. The night I came to Danang the first night was a competition between team Austria and Vietnam. In the end the competition was won by the Italian team.

After Hue, the trip went to Danang. A coastal city with a booming tourism sector thanks to it’s long sandy beaches, beautiful nature and proximity to the ancient city of Hoi An. To get to Danang from Hue you have to pass the spectacular Hai Van Pass or take the longest tunnel in Southeast Asia at 6.28 km, built to ease the congestion that used to be there. We decided to hire a car over the 21 km mountain pass so we could see some of the most spectacular views in the region. The Hai Van Pass, that means «ocean cloud pass.» The name comes from the mists that rises from the sea. The pass was historically a physical barrier between the kingdoms of Champa and Dai Viet. Since the opening of the tunnel the traffic flow has eased and less accidents have happened. The pass has also had two serious rail accidents and one air crash. But the beauty of the drive over the pass is fantastic. It was featured in the 2008 Top Gear Vietnam special as well where Clarkson called it "a deserted ribbon of perfection—one of the best coast roads in the world,» and I agree completely. It was a spectacular and beautiful drive and I can’t wait to go back again but this time take the drive on a motorcycle.
