So we've successfully made it to Sweden, including Barkley. Next up on the list: finding jobs, an apartment in the city, finally learning to speak Swedish (for me), just minor things. The good news is spring is finally setting in and frisbee is starting! ... Read more >

We wake at 4:30am, brush our teeth and make our way over to our friends who are stationed in front of the tent shop, already goofing around. We were able to piece together the night before that the group of 5 is working on their senior project together ... Read more >

When we last wrote Alex and I were on our way to the market in Surin to purchase some items to make Hor Mok  at Pirom-Aree's. We asked Aree if she would be willing to help us make this dish and if we could use her kitchen to do it. After a little ... Read more >

Inevitable Angkor

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 18 Feb 2010 | Views [534]

During our last days in Phnom Penh it becomes clear to us that we really do need to go to Siem Reap to see the temples of Angkor. We had been hesitant to make the trip because of the high admission prices and tourist traffic. Again and again, other travelers ... Read more >

Bangkok and Beyond Part II

CAMBODIA | Saturday, 6 Feb 2010 | Views [617]

A Tuk Tuk from the train takes us to the Thai/Cambodian border. The mass of moto drivers, beggars and hawkers yelling and tugging us is only a glimps of what we are about to walk into. After we stamp "out" of Thailand we are hoping to turn ... Read more >

Geography is very useful

Today is the end of our stay on Ton Sai. We've had a great time and we're sad to leave. We decided to not bring a rope and draws on our trip since we'll be doing a lot of traveling without climbing. We didn't realize that it would cost more than twice ... Read more >
