9 Helpful Lessons Learned While Visiting Thailand

Being first timers in Thailand, we naturally had a lot to learn! We planned our trip without the help of a travel guide or travel agency, so everything we encountered was a learning experience. Unfortunately, some things had to be learned the hard way. Our trip was quite the adventure, but we wished we had…

8 Great Things to do in Bangkok!

When you think of Thailand, the first city that comes to mind is probably Bangkok. This could be because of movies, music, or simply because Bangkok is the largest city in Thailand. Our first night in Bangkok was literally a 4 hour nap before we flew to Koh Samui en route to Koh Phangan, but…

Chiang Mai – A MUST see city in Thailand!

Chiang Mai, the oh so beautiful city and Province of Thailand, home to over 300 Buddhist temples, many cultural activities, nature, and great food and fun! Chiang Mai is normally a first stop for many visitors to Thailand, but the way everything worked out for us, it ended up being one of our last stops!…

Easter Weekend in Koh Phi Phi and Krabi

“Where will you be for Easter?” my mother asked a few months before our trip. As I looked at the dates, I realized we would be in Koh Phi Phi! So I sent her a google photo of the longtail boats in Maya Bay. Krabi was certainly the most beautiful location we visited! I’m lumping…

Celebrating Songkran on Koh Tao!

It is funny how things just seem to work out, especially while traveling. When we were in line for Little Miss BBQ in Phoenix, AZ, we were talking about our upcoming trip to Thailand, and the guy in front of us turned to us and said, “I just got back from Thailand!” He proceeded to…

Full Moon Festival on Koh Phangan

If you have been keeping up (with my posts, not the Kardashians), I recently posted about our itinerary to Thailand, and how we would have done it differently. Now, I am going to go into further detail on the places we have visited, the experiences we had there, and any words of advice I have…

Seattle: Another Foodie Haven!

After our flight landed in Seattle, we got our bags, waited forever for a shuttle to the car rental place, got the car and left the airport around 11:30pm. We were STARVING. Problem was, it was getting close to midnight. The GOOD thing about Seattle is you won’t find many fast-food places, but that really…

Seattle: The Culture and Climate of the City and its People

Seattle, home of the Space Needle, Pike Place Public Market, Starbucks and lots of rain. Even if you have never been to Seattle, you know about these landmarks and traits, but what about the less known cultural facts about Seattle? I did not know much about this city, especially about the neighborhoods, culture, people, and…

Southern Utah, Salt Lake City, and Some Rad Pics and Vids!

While we were in Arizona, our trip home to CT was postponed a few weeks, which meant we needed to figure out where else we wanted to go. We could have driven to New Mexico to explore there a few weeks, but the flights out of Albuquerque were really expensive. Our other two options were…

Food and Fun in Arizona

This will be my 3rd and final post on Arizona, which is bitter sweet. We really enjoyed the beauty, fun, and activities in Arizona. We certainly enjoyed ourselves with all the hiking and drinking locally in Arizona, so be sure to read those blogs, but I also wanted to tell you about the great food…
