Koh Lanta

After a one day trip to Koh Phi Phi V and I decided to take a vacation from travel and spent three nights in a little bungalow by the beach. We spent the first day at the beach, and then decided to rent a motorcycle to travel around the island. Unfortunately our plans were disrupted…

Koh Phi Phi

Visiting Koh Phi Phi was the most thoughtout, spontaneous decisions. One moment we would decide to skip the island, the next we would decide to go. We vacillated for over 24 hours finally deciding and booking the ferry to Koh Phi Phi one hour for it was set to leave. We were unsure if we…

Krabi

After my amazing week on Koh Tao, three of my dive group members and myself headed to Krabi on the west coast of Thailand. The move from Koh Tao to Krabi involved a sketchy night boat and a bus driver who almost kicked myself and another passenger out of the van for false crimes. Yay…

Koh Tao

After taking a flight from Phnom Penh to Bangkok, spending the night in Bangkok then taking a night train to Chumphon, I arrived in Koh Tao. The ferry from Chumphon to Koh Tao was an unpleasant experience full of sick bags and big waves. Thankfully years of changing diapers has honed my skill for breathing…

Kampot & Kep

After the island I spent two days in a wonderful, lazy beach town. Saw salt flats, pepper fields, drove through the country side, and ate fresh crab on the waterfront.

Koh Rong

After over a month of traveling nonstop I needed a break. Koh Rong perfectly fit my needs with amazing people, lovely beaches, and unbelievable water.

Siem Reap

I wasn’t a big fan of Siem Reap. This may be a result of only venturing into the touristy locations, where tuk-tuk drivers and vendors alike hound you every step you take.

Vang Vieng

Spent three great days in Vang Vieng with a group of fellow travelers; we went tubing, played in a lagoon, and simply chilled. Traveling with friends is a lot of fun, but also very different than traveling solo.

Oh Luang Prabang!

Spent five days in the middle of northern Laos at Luang Prabang. I went to a great Lao cooking class, hung out with some wonderful people, and saw the most beautiful waterfalls I’ve ever seen. The fish biting my feet scared me though. Sorry for the delay in posts, the Internet hasn’t been strong enough…

The Gibbon Experience

My sole reason for coming to Huay Xai, Laos was the Gibbon Experience. I shelled out $300 big ones, going well over budget for the first time, to hike into the jungle, zip line to tree houses, and hopefully see some Gibbons. My choice to splurge, was easily the best choice I’ve made on my…

Holy Loas!

Distances on maps can be deceiving. What looks like 3 hours away could turn out to be, you know, like 12 hours. The journey to Huay Xai, Laos was 12 hours long. Starting in Pai, Thailand we drove to Chiang Mai and arrived at Chiang Khong around 12 hours later. We spent the night and…

Pai in the Sky

Went to the bellingham version of thailand. Over hippy, over white, and over hyped. It was still very beautiful and stuck high in general north western mountains. I happened to arrive at the end of a festival, and caught a parade. Today I rented motor bikes (only $4/24hr including gas) and visited all the major…
