USA | Saturday, 2 Jul 2011 | Views [77]

Tues I woke early to practice yoga in Mysore & we enjoyed our last breakfast at Green Hotel.  Our suite was quite loud due to street traffic & shower wasn't working properly, so we were ready to enjoy Ahmad's air conditioned auto ride to Kelpatta.... Read more >


India, Day 3

USA | Monday, 27 Jun 2011 | Views [108]

We left Visthar & Bangalore early & spent 4 hours on highways sadly with constant exhaust blowing in our faces - it is a testament to how heavily populated & full the roads are in India.  Our driver had to stop along the way to jump out of the car & investigate ... Read more >

Tokyo

USA | Saturday, 10 Jan 2009 | Views [206]

We made it to Tokyo.  Thailand's customs didn't hold us there -- bummer, really.  We found each other with not too much difficulty (we flew on different airlines).  After leaving customs, we walked into the cold Japanese air.  I know 50 degrees is tropical ... Read more >

The Island of Koh Chang

THAILAND | Tuesday, 6 Jan 2009 | Views [306] | Comments [3]

We spent our last day at a different resort on Koh Mak called Koh Mak Resort (very original, we know).  Our first resort was too busy and loud for us.  We have been spoiled with luxury and solitude.  Koh Mak resort was back to that.  We spent most ... Read more >


It's the little things

USA | Monday, 5 Jan 2009 | Views [354] | Video

Just thought it would be worth mentioning the little things that make this experience exceptional - everyone smiles and putting your hands together like a prayer & bowing your head is a form of respect & thanks. "korb koon ka" is ... Read more >


Lovely Koh Mak

THAILAND | Sunday, 4 Jan 2009 | Views [310] | Comments [1]

We left our island paradise of Koh Kood for another island (hoping for paradise again) -- Koh Mak.  This island is north of Koh Kood and much smaller.  At one time, Koh Mak didn't have any motorized vehicles. That has changed now but it is quite easy ... Read more >

I love this pic taken at our New Year's eve ~ hope everyone is enjoying the holiday! We walked to our roadside stand for Singha beers then laid around in front of our bungalow and read, napped and relaxed.  (The most excitement on our shore was watching ... Read more >


Happy New Year!

USA | Thursday, 1 Jan 2009 | Views [316] | Video

AWAY

USA | Wednesday, 31 Dec 2008 | Views [268] | Comments [1]

We woke early to catch a puddlejumper to Trat - only to find out most ferries were full due to the New Year holiday. We paid perhaps a little more but were able to secure spots on oversize speed boats - great rides reminiscent of the big lake on a ... Read more >


Last Night in Bangkok

USA | Tuesday, 30 Dec 2008 | Views [251]

Dined at ethos - a vegetarian restaurant & wandered Khoasan Road - famed night area with cheap goods & hostels nearby (full of backpacking students fixing their dreds & looking to drink snakeblood - oh and street vendors sell corn, kernels ... Read more >


Second Day in Bangkok

THAILAND | Tuesday, 30 Dec 2008 | Views [311] | Comments [3] | Video

After a refreshing cold shower (it is wonderfully hot here 85+ degrees and HUMID) & short nap to help with our jet lag ~ we went to the night bazaar.   Given we are in the Old City the subways are not near us, tuk tuk is the cheapest and fastest ... Read more >
