Cambodia rnd 1: Siem Reap

With Thailand in the rear view, I was off to Cambodia! I touched down in Siem Reap on a sizzling Wednesday afternoon and was immediately confused. The visa process was easy enough at the airport and I was cleared to enter the country, but when I went to take out cash from the ATM i […]

Chiang Mai rnd 3

Thailand was great. It was better than great. It had exceeded my expectations. Unfortunately my month there was coming to an end. After returning to Chiang Mai once more (for the 3rd time) I was almost ready to move on. Luckily I had a few days extra in the city before I had to fly […]

Pai 2… and 3… and 4

Finally, I actually have some down time. I’ve decided to take my time in Phenom Penn slowly, cut down on the booze, and actually write something. I’ve been lack luster in my blogging performance. The heart hasn’t been in it. There’s a lot of beer in Asia and I usually sit down for one after […]

Pai 1

I’m pretty confident that there’s a 50% chance you die on your way there, but I would take those odds every time if it meant I got to spend another day in Pai. It is one of the coolest places in the world. It’s a paradise tucked up in the northern mountains of Thailand. A […]

Chiang Mai rnd 2

Back to Bangkok

So I’m back in the big city. This time however, I’m rolling solo. To be honest I was rather nervous to start my onward journey, relying on only myself. It was sad to see Chelsea go. She was a great travel companion and it would have been hard to adjust to SE Asia without her […]

Koh Samui

I’m not sure there was a better feeling during the first two weeks of this trip than when our ferry left Koh Phi Phi. Perhaps I’ll make my way back to those islands at some point, but my memories until then will be full of sickness and horror. Admittedly that’s dramatic, but we were sick […]
