Koh Samui, Thailand: Why We Couldn’t Stay Away

Well, here we are again in Koh Samui, Thailand. We’ve been here since June 1st and we couldn’t be happier about our decision. This blog post isn’t going to be so much about what we’ve been doing but more about how we got here and why/how we decided to come back to this little island…

Koh Samui (Again): Our Mini Waterfall Tour

So — we’re back in Koh Samui, Thailand. Why? Because it’s perfection, that’s why. Honestly — out of everywhere we’ve been so far on this adventure — this is our favorite spot. We fell in love with it last June/July and we knew we wanted to come back. So we did. There are so many reasons why we…

That Time We Went To A Vietnamese Wedding

We spent (another) two weeks in Hoi An, Vietnam — rang in the New Year and went back to visit our awesome Airbnb hosts (Mike and Hanh) from our previous visit. But honestly? We didn’t do much in those two weeks because the weather was…well…shit. But we did do one thing — went to a very awesome,…

Phu Quoc, Vietnam: Gorgeous Beaches & Sketchy Moments

We were bummed to say goodbye to my Dad and Leslye — but the good news was — Adam (Kile’s brother) was still with us and we were going to be meeting up with his wife Monica! The fun continues! And now we were headed to the island of Phu Quoc. So Much to Explore: Let’s Get…

Mui Ne, Vietnam: FAMILY TIME!

Kile and I had been counting down the days for this next chapter of our adventure — family time! The festivities were going to begin in Bangkok before moving on to Mui Ne, Vietnam — Kile’s brother Adam would be the first to arrive, then my Dad and stepmom Leslye, and finally Adam’s wife Monica (next…

Vang Vieng: Does It Get Any More Gorgeous Than This?!

Clearly, by our last post – Laos immediately left a great impression on us. Luang Prabang was amazing. It ticked every box when it comes to a place we love to hang out: it’s not too big, surrounded by nature, it’s cheap, the people are nice and it’s beautiful. What more could you want? Little…

Wrappin’ It Up In Chiang Mai With A Waterfall & A Temple

Once again – another month has absolutely flown by. We loved our time in Chiang Mai and fully understand why so many ex-pats and retirees flock to this beautiful city. It’s so rich in history and culture, not to mention full of great food – it’s not hard to fall in love with this place….

Yi Peng & Loy Krathong Festivals: The Entire Reason We’re Here!

We’ve been quite boring since we last wrote. The weather was a bit gloomy and rainy. The elections back home had us pretty depressed (don’t even get me started.) And overall – we just weren’t very motivated to do much. That all changed within the past 4 days. Back when we began our travels we…

Huế, Vietnam: It’s Huế Cool

A visit to Central Vietnam isn’t complete without a trip to Huế- pronounced “hway.” Hence the title – get it? (total dork alert) The city of Huế is about 78 miles north of Hoi An and completely worth the day trip. Our new friend Jerry, who was staying at our Airbnb, invited us to join him – we…

Hoi An, Vietnam: Food, Generosity, Karaoke & More Food

Layovers and Customs – FUN! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – travel days suck. They just do. They’re my least favorite part about gallivanting around the world. Getting from the Philippines to Vietnam was one of those sucky travel days. We flew from Tagbilaran to Manila (7 hour layover in Manila)…

Bohol, Philippines: So Much Beauty On One Island

Our time in Panglao was spent exploring that tiny island and venturing up to the bigger island of Bohol which is over a bridge about 7 miles from where we were staying. Road Trip with a Local Food Pit Stop My friend and co-worker Farrah, who is from Bohol, has a lot of connections around Panglao…
