Making a Trail

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Today, we went to the War Museum in Siem Reap. The entrance sign was equal parts quaint and creepy. Based on reviews by other tourists, it was an interactive museum where you could pick up and take pictures with various small arms and stand on the tanks. So, we did just that: Dual weild: I […]

We made it to Siem Reap, Cambodia today. We were worried we had budgeted too much time to spend in Siem Reap, but then we learned about our hotel’s all-you-can-drink $9 happy hour, and we weren’t so concerned :). Look for more posts later this week. ~ Becky

We really had a great time on Ko Lanta. The sunsets may bring us back to this place some day. A few cool shots of a fire dancer: We’re in Bangkok for the night and fly to Cambodia tomorrow. Best wishes for everyone back home.

This line was actually yelled at me when we were visiting Hawaii, but I thought it was fitting to be reused to honor the sweet moped we used to get around Ko Lanta. It was really fun and alowed us to explore way more of the island than we would have been able to otherwise. […]

We’ve been in Thailand for almost three weeks. Initially we were a little worried we had budgeted too much time here, but we’re going to be sad to leave. Thailand is a beautiful country with friendly and happy people. The food is really good too. As to the blogging, we’ve been a little remiss. So […]

We did a mangrove/sea kayaking tour off Koh Lanta in Southern Thailand. It was, as usual, an oppressively hot and humid day, so being near/in the water all day was welcomed. We paddled our kayaks from a smaller inland tributary to the water separating Koh Lanta Noi and Yai. In the mangrove forest at the […]

Today we went on a tour exploring the islands west of Ko Lanta (where we’re staying.) The main reason I wanted to go on the tour was I had read about all the limestone karsts, which are islands with sheer cliffs created by erosion. The islands themsleves did not disappoint, and the white sand beaches […]

Today we celebrated the Thai new year, Songkran. The original purpose of the holiday was to celebrate the new year (starting April 13) and to bless Buddha by bathing him in water. Then people blessed each other with water, too. Somehow over the years this has devolved into a giant water fight. The largest celebration […]

Chiang Mai itself is a beautiful, mellow little town. We spent a few days here just walking around the old city, eating good food and buying souvenirs (not to mention Mike getting some baller custom-tailored suits.) Our last night in Chiang Mai, Mike and I headed for some drinks at a stretch of bars down […]
