Itchy Feet on the Cheap
  • 300th Video! State of Channel Address w\ Major Announcement

    1,824 views 3 months ago
    This is a travel/food channel made by an actual traveler and an obsessive eater (check out the silken tofu dish in this video). I'm a life-long expat who's Canadian but also lived in Slovakia, Vietnam, and China. Sara, my partner in crime, is an international teacher. While living abroad, we travel like a couple of insane conquerors. We love to experiencing new cultures, especially their food. I hate the term foodie, cause it sounds pretentious. I don't like food fads, I like to eat. I like to discover cultures through their food. It's not about being trendy. I also love to watch food being cooked. Street food is an art. Mastering just one dish and sharing your mastery with the world, deserves my stomach's respect.

    While Asia is our first love, we've been all over Europe, South America, and North America. Together, we've been to around 30 countries.

    Currently, we live in Chengdu, China. Asia's first city to be named a UNESCO City of Gastronomy. I've obsessed over the food in Sichuan. I created a series that involved drawing Sichuan food themed playing cards at random and searching out the dish in Chengdu. The 54 episode series can be seen here:

    But if you are going to Chengdu, you should really check out my Sichuan food guide.

  • Chengdu: City of Gastronomy Play all

    I'm taking on Asia's first UNESCO City of Gastronomy. Chengdu is my home, and lucky for me - it's a food heaven! Sichuan food is known worldwide. I love it, but with so many dishes out there, it's hard for me to know where to start. Luckily, I found a deck of playing cards that feature a different dish on every card. In this series, every week I'll shuffle the deck up and draw a card. Whatever dish I get, I'll head into the city to hunt down and try. There's some weird looking stuff in there, but my mouth and I are open to new tastes. Tune in every Thursday at around 3PM EST to watch the latest video, and be sure to subscribe.

  • Vietnam! Living and Traveling it for 2 years. Play all

    I love Vietnam. I lived there for two years, and I still go back from time to time. These videos will show you a side of Vietnam that you didn't know existed. They will make you want to travel there, meet their people, and eat their food. I've been all over the country and I can honestly say it's one of my favorite places in the world.
    If you are planning to head to Vietnam, check out my budget travel guide:
    Or, if you want to learn more about the food my food guide has photos and descriptions of over 75 dishes:

  • This is China Play all

    When I first moved to China, I was blown away. Despite Han Chinese making up about 19% of the world's population, I found that I didn't really know anything about the people and their country.

    These videos are a documentation of my discovery. You'll find videos from around Chengdu (the city I live), and from plenty of other places around China.

    Don't believe what you see in the movies - This is China.

  • The India Chronicles - 28 Days/28 Videos Play all

    This is my 28-day trip through India. I decided to do a video per day documenting the adventure. Some of the videos will be informative. Some will showcase a city or a tourist attraction. Some will likely be about getting diarrhea (that happens a lot in India). Watch the ones you want, or binge watch them all while you sit in the bath eating a sandwich. If not all 28 are there, that means I haven't completed the trip yet. Be sure to tune in tomorrow to see what happens next. Thanks for watching and enjoy!

  • Tibet in China - Experiencing Tibet in West Sichuan Play all

    Visiting the Tibetan Autonomous Region is a pain. As a westerner, you need a guide and a special permit. My dislike of organized tours led me to Western Sichuan, where you can experience Tibet independently, without any special paperwork. This series shows you what it's like and gives you some information on the people, their culture, and the towns. If you want to take this trip yourself, please visit my website and have a look at the detailed guide: An Alternate Way to Experience Tibet -

  • Qinghai, Gansu, Sichuan - This is Western China! Play all

    For almost a month, we traveled Qinghai and Gansu province in western China. The Chinese will call it exotic China. It's the home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. The mountains change from a dusty brown sandstone to a beautiful green. The yellow river, the 2nd longest river in Asia, cuts between the provinces. It's early waters have a beautiful green hue. China's beauty is on game here, and the culture is one of the most diverse with Chinese Muslims, Tibetans, and other ethnic minorities.

  • The Best of Taipei, Taiwan... And Maybe the World. Play all

    Taipei, Taiwan is an amazing place for food. It may be the best food city in the world. We spent a lot of our time at the night markets, sampling the various snacks. The street food is cheap and varies from Asian dishes to western dishes with a Taiwanese twist. The Taiwanese twist... that sounds like a dance. I guess that could be the name of the happy dance that comes out of me when I'm eating Taipei's delicious food.
