Temples in Bagan. Fishermen on Inle Lake. I’m sure you’ve heard about these things by now. Mentions of the beauty and allure of Myanmar is all over – I even spotted it on Snapchat the other day. It’s one country that is still holding on to some of its mystery, and adventurous travelers are beginning to flock … More life lessons in burma
Dedicating this post to dumping some Bangkok shots that I haven’t gotten around to posting anywhere. Inspired by my recent collaboration with KLM – found HERE (and hiiii new readers!) – I’ve decided to post some of the shots on the blog to share more of what I see/do on a daily basis. We just finished one … More bangkok daze
It is so nice having talented friends. The magical little nymph behind The Pickled Leaf is my friend Trish. She’s currently in culinary school, and her new venture The Pickled Leaf is a simple concept – bringing people together to partake in one of life’s greatest pleasures: fooooood. And it is really, really good food. The … More the pickled leaf
In case you are not aware, I grew up in Arizona. My desert upbringing familiarized me with various shapes and sizes of cacti, the different textures of each of the mountain ranges that completely encircled my hometown, and, as I often bemoaned, the color brown. Every flight I took, primarily in those angst-filled preteen years, I would … More a conversation about color
Scott recently purchased an old Jeep and we finally had a long weekend free to test it out on the road. It really shouldn’t come as a surprise that we ran into a few issues. Did you know that old Jeeps can run on gas OR propane? And that there is a tiny switch that changes what fuel … More zen and the art of jeep maintenance
I hope you guys like horse pictures. These are all from Farm Mor Por and Mirasierra up in Khao Yai, my new favorite thing about my favorite place.
noun 1. a statement or proposition that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth. 2. any person, thing, or situation exhibiting an apparently contradictory nature. Been feeling like a walking talking paradox lately.. I want to keep this show on the road; to keep moving – going where I want, when I want. To fill … More paradox
The last week of my America trip was spent wandering up the central coast of California with Joey. He took a break from Jazzfest to meet me in L.A., rent a convertible, and drive north with really nothing planned. We left L.A. in the afternoon, pulling over abruptly for tiny farmers markets with their portly, … More coastal cliffs, a camaro, and a campfire
I’ve really run the gamut of emotions during this year in Thailand. I flip flop between thinking this is the best decision I’ve made in awhile…or the worst. Going home for a month did nothing to make my decision to live so far away any easier. While I love exploring as many places as I … More homeland
You really don’t need an excuse to escape to the beach. But, if I had to use one, my one-year Thailand anniversary was as good a reason as any. The trip consisted of the usual suspects: Ja, Michael and John. Location: Koh Samet, a short drive and ferry ride from Bangkok. We did our fair share of … More vacation life
A bit of random Bangkok action from my DSLR while I work on some new content for this site. What kinds of articles do you want to see? I’m thinking of heading into a more general lifestyle direction, while still sticking with the concept of travel and living abroad. Let me know in the comments!
When I lived in the Netherlands, my mother made the journey to Breda, met my friends and experienced my daily European life. This year, she added Thailand to the list. Only this time, we rode motorbikes instead of bicycles, sipped tropical drinks on a river instead of shots of vodka from a water bottle, and walked through jungles instead of cobbled streets. … More mothership has landed
