Bucket-List Destinations You Can Actually Afford

Bucket list is often a euphemism for the dreams I’ll get to someday. Why wait– especially when many of these epic destinations are way more affordable than you think. We’ve been honeymooning since 2012 and have experienced world wonders across the seven continents and kept our average budget under $40 a day per person. Of…

Sukhothai: The Golden Age of Thailand

We’ll admit, when you see ancient temples nearly every day for nine months you can get a little bleary-eyed and jaded…but our visit to Sukhothai was anything but an ordinary stop in Southeast Asia. While going through our photos for this post we realized we had forgotten how stunning and cutting-edge the first capital of…

The Back Roads & Warm Hearts of Thailand

Sometimes the biggest snafus turn out to be the best experiences and our botched road trip from Chiang Mai to Pai, Thailand is at the top of that list.

After our laid-back Christmas rock-climbing holiday in Railay Beach we decided to investigate (purely for…

Climbers’ Christmas

Only accessible by boat, Railay beach has the feel of a far-flung Thai island…but instead of ocean, dramatic cliffs are what isolate this gem from the mainland. The staggering landscape and turquoise water bring the typical posh clientele to the peninsula but, even better, the upper echelon of rock climbers. It’s a quirky, beautiful place…

Adventures in Southern Thailand

Surviving 12/12/12 mostly unscathed, we led our six fearless friends on a race to see as much as Southern Thailand as their remaining five vacation days would allow. On the docket: Khao Sok virgin rainforest, Phang Na Bay’s karst islands, party Phuket, and the mellow beaches of Racha island. GO! Khao Sok National park Beaches…
