Less than a year, and we got to go abroad again! I onced asked my dad about his ethnicity, and he said he was a European mutt. When I dug deeper, he explained that we were part Belgian, French and English. Just by chance those were the three countries ... Read more >

Finally heading abroad again after 2 very long years!

USA | Tuesday, 13 Jul 2010 | Views [357]

Asia was amazing, we dream of it every day and wish we were back there! Amazing usually is expensive, while overall our trip wasn't that costly, we were gone for over 2 months and it set us back a little bit.  Finally, we were able to save for and justify ... Read more >

So Kyle and I have been back in the US for a little over a month.   It was a hard adjustment.   We both readapted in a different way.   Kyle had a hard time right at first.   He was irritated by American’s and the way they seemed so ungrateful for ... Read more >


August 6th Heading Home!!

THAILAND | Wednesday, 6 Aug 2008 | Views [508]

Ok, here's a run down on the last day of our trip!  Breakfast, then quick beach time.  Shower, pack up.  Haggle with the taxi driver on the price to the pier.  Settle on 200 Baht, still too much.  So we take the taxi truck to the pier, take the ferry ... Read more >


August 5th Last Full Day!

THAILAND | Tuesday, 5 Aug 2008 | Views [516]

This day looked much like the other days on the island.  Beach time!  Apparently, I get really fun on the last day of our trips.  I must finally relax enough to have a good time.  Kyle and I enjoyed a decent amount of Rum and Coke while we lounged on ... Read more >


August 4th

THAILAND | Monday, 4 Aug 2008 | Views [552]

Today we decided to do something other than just lay around on the beach!  We decided to lie around on a boat!  There was a boat trip that offered snorkeling, lunch, fishing and a fish farm all for 400 Baht, a pretty good deal.  We had to return the ... Read more >


August 3rd

THAILAND | Sunday, 3 Aug 2008 | Views [706] | Comments [1]

We are fed up with this Tub Tim resort.   The service is crap and the food is not all that good, plus we are getting ripped off by staying in this fan-only room.   So we rented a moto and went in search of a new place to stay.   We only had two hours ... Read more >


August 2nd

THAILAND | Saturday, 2 Aug 2008 | Views [532]

This morning Kyle was able to sneak and get a voucher for breakfast since we figured it wasn’t included with our cheapie room.   As time went on we realized nothing was included in our cheapie room.   Not only did it not have hot water and AC which ... Read more >


August 1st Koh Samet

THAILAND | Friday, 1 Aug 2008 | Views [573]

We had breakfast this morning.   The usual fried eggs with toast and veggies.   For some reason or other the food seems better and healthier out here.   Even when it seems ill prepared.   I am guessing that most of the food is fairly fresh and not ... Read more >


July 31st, Ko Samet, Thailand

THAILAND | Thursday, 31 Jul 2008 | Views [1351]

Angy and I were woken up at around 4:45 am, give or take 15 minutes.   We got up and went about our morning routine of brushing our teeth and Angy washing her face.   The train man then came around and turned everyone’s beds back into seats for the ... Read more >

THAILAND | Wednesday, 30 Jul 2008 | Views [1114] | Comments [2]

Breakfast was again very good.   Mim helped me order mushrooms with my eggs rather than the potatoes I was having.   Then we parted ways with Mim, saying we would meet up in Koh Samet in a few days.   Kyle and I had a few things to get done before ... Read more >


July 29th, Chiang Mai, Thailand

THAILAND | Tuesday, 29 Jul 2008 | Views [629]

Today we needed to figure out which beach or island we wanted to go to and make travel arrangements for getting there.   Kyle’s dad had tried to help us out with the use of his timeshare but nothing was available at such short notice near any of the ... Read more >


July 28th, Chiang Mai, Thailand

THAILAND | Monday, 28 Jul 2008 | Views [1041]

We got up and enjoyed the breakfast at our hotel that Mim had suggested.   We both had poached eggs with bacon, ham and sausage.   Of course the sausage is like a hot dog but it is still good, it at least tastes like a sausage.   Kyle went down ... Read more >

LAOS | Saturday, 26 Jul 2008 | Views [753] | Comments [3]

So if you read yesterday’s story you might remember how when Angy had to go to the bathroom the second time I “made” her go to the bathroom alone.   Well it was about four in the morning and it was already getting light outside.   Also she was just ... Read more >

We woke up early to get ready for our trip.   We separated our gear and put the stuff we would be bringing into the dry bags Kyle had bought for the trip.   I would have to go without my pillow for another night, no room, and kind of ridiculous on ... Read more >


July 24th, Luang Prabang to Luang Nam Tha, Laos

LAOS | Thursday, 24 Jul 2008 | Views [576]

The tuk-tuk got to our guesthouse at exactly 9am.   Before we left, while I was getting ready Kyle went down the street to a little stand that sold baguette sandwiches with chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes and chili sauce.   At least we would have a little ... Read more >

LAOS | Wednesday, 23 Jul 2008 | Views [616] | Comments [1]

We were in search of a new hotel this morning. We are nearing the end of our trip and we realized we are a little lower on funds than we thought. Oh this was totally scary! When I went to shower there was a massive spider up in the corner. I let out ... Read more >

LAOS | Sunday, 20 Jul 2008 | Views [717]

Woke up in the morning and had breakfast. Angy and both ordered the French breakfast which was the wrong choice. A baguette, butter, jelly, and a few pieces of pineapple. I guess it was free but still I could have had more. We hopped into our mini-bus ... Read more >

LAOS | Saturday, 19 Jul 2008 | Views [715]

Goodbye Hanoi! Kyle and I are leaving Vietnam today for Laos. This is the one country that we didn’t get our visa ahead of time, since I am such a planner and preparer this makes me a little nervous. We got up and had our standard breakfast. Then we ... Read more >
