Things to do in Krabi, Thailand

Things to do in Krabi, Thailand

Krabi is a large province on west coast of southern Thailand. Krabi Town is the capitol, a quaint little city that lies at the mouth of the Krabi River where it empties into Phang Nga Bay, then into the Andaman Sea. It is a relaxed place of diversity, delicious food, and breathtaking scenes. Large limestone cliffs jut high into the sky, lush jungles and mangrove forests surround the area, and it is the perfect location…

Sarajevo – Scars of War

Sarajevo – Scars of War

Our bus journey from Niš, Serbia, to Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina, was thirteen hours of sheer beauty. We wound through fields and farms, curving around rolling hills that extended across winding rivers toward mountains that disappeared against the backdrop of a clear blue summer sky. As we zoomed through the tunnels cut into the mountainside, the emerald waters of the river glowed bright green below. Our path widened and narrowed along the cliffs with an endless view of tree groves….

Evil Spirits of Nyepi Eve on Bali

Evil Spirits of Nyepi Eve on Bali

WARNING: Some of the following images are graphic and of a disturbing nature We spent the day of Nyepi Eve, or New Years Eve, roaming the towns and villages of Bali, awing at the Ogoh-Ogoh, the large papier-mache effigies of evil demons that were to be paraded through the streets then burned at midnight. This was symbolic of killing off all the evil spirits and bad energy, so the citizens could live more peaceful and pure…

Nyepi – Celebrating the Balinese New Year

Nyepi – Celebrating the Balinese New Year

In all my travels, never have I encountered a holiday tradition as unique as Nyepi. It’s the Balinese ‘day of silence’ that is commemorated every new year following the dark moon of the spring equinox – which lucky enough for us, happened during our stay on the island. What made this experience so special, is that the Hindu island of Bali, lies in a country that is dominantly Muslim, the the largest Islamic country in the world…

Art in Bangkok

Art in Bangkok

We left Khao San Road to take a stroll away from the bustling street and into a quieter area.

The Art Exhibition sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and the Thai Art Council USA.  Outside of the gallery was lined with artist selling their creations, and small workshops where by-passers can try their hand at…

Bohemian Bangkok

Bohemian Bangkok

I’ve been in many large cities in my life. London, New York, Rome, Los Angeles, Paris, Chicago, Washington DC – none of them prepare you for Bangkok. When you think of Thailand, you think of Buddhist monks in saffron robes, domesticated elephants, beaches that truly look like the shores of paradise, and the perfect balance of spices and coconut milk. What you experience when you hit Bangkok is something very different. We’ve been in Bangkok…

How Monks Cured my Travel Blues

How Monks Cured my Travel Blues

Today didn’t start well. I was suffering from some of the worse jet-lag I’ve yet to encounter, so I was a bit grumpy to begin with. That mixed with sciatica, this damned pinched nerve that has been plaguing the entire length of my right leg for the past year of my life, as well as a sickness I’d caught in the States last month that refuses to go away, leaving me coughing and wheezing like…

The Cost of Living Around the World

The Cost of Living Around the World

I often get asked, ‘How can you afford to travel around the world so much’ … My response has changed over the years, but essentially it’s the fact that the cost of living outside of America is often a cheaper option, even though America isn’t even in the top 15 most expensive countries to live in anymore. We spend less money traveling around the world every month than on one months rent in the States. Granted,…

Top 10 dishes to eat in Malaysia

Top 10 dishes to eat in Malaysia

We love to eat, and have no shame in getting fat during our stints in Malaysia. It’s inevitable. We enjoy the food to much to refrain from gluttony. Here’s why: Malaysia is a melting pot of culture. There are Singaporeans, French, Thais, Indonesians, Spaniards, Arabs, and other Europeans thrown into the mix, but the country is dominantly Chinese, Indian, and Malay – meaning there is a lot of options when it comes to eating! The…
