Wow...I just realized it's been awhile since I posted.  I forgot to post anything from my Vietnam trip.  Ok...here is the quick recap of Vietnam...massive cars/motorbikes, chaos, everyone driving at one time going in all directions, honking and more ... Read more >

Smarmyville (aka Koh Samui)

THAILAND | Wednesday, 28 Jul 2010 | Views [478]

First, let me just say, "I hate Koh Samui."  In fact, I hate it so much that if Chaweng Beach broke off the island and fell into the ocean it would only be an improvement. (OK...maybe I shouldn't put that bad kind of energy into the universe, ... Read more >

Finding Nemo

I decided I like the train again. Its preferable to riding the bus and ferry for over 10 hours. I've always read that those born with an astrological sign of Cancer usually love the water and at one point in my life, I think this was true. But it ... Read more >

Bangkok Dangerous

THAILAND | Thursday, 15 Jul 2010 | Views [477]

I've decided I like trains much less after having been on one for what seemed like forever and not being able to sleep at all on it. I arrived in Bangkok at "O dark hundred," tired, cranky and starving.  I then had to to get a cab to my ... Read more >

THAILAND | Friday, 9 Jul 2010 | Views [322]

So back to Chiang Mai....This time I stayed in the Old City, which is inside Thae Pae Gate. I met up with Dave, the salty old expat that I met in Mae Salong and he gave me the dime tour of Chiang Mai. He also helped me look for apartments and what ... Read more >

I HEART Mae Salong

THAILAND | Monday, 28 Jun 2010 | Views [397]

"Ahhhhhh!" That was the first thing that came out of my mouth as we made our way further into the mountains and closer to Mae Salong.  The oppressive heat of Thaton was slowly being ebbed out by the nice cool Mae Salong air.   I was warmly ... Read more >

Want to know something interesting about the bus network here in Thailand?  They don't need a bus stop to drop people off or pick people up.  So when I told the bus driver I wanted to get off at the Basang so i could catch a soong taow to Mae Salong, ... Read more >

The Lost Week: Border Run to Mae Sai

THAILAND | Monday, 14 Jun 2010 | Views [466]

On Sunday, I basically lounged around Chiang Rai. I was feeling a bit under the weather...maybe it's from being in the rain (imagine that!), but I thought I was coming down with something.  And no, I wasn't just coming down with a case of irritation.... Read more >

Well, thankfully, Ben came back up from his trekking in Chiang Mai on Friday.  We took a walk to the yellow tables, had a nice normal sized meal, and then headed back to the hotel in hopes of getting a good nights rest and an early start the next morning.... Read more >

Got nothin' but time on my hands and getting larger every minute!

THAILAND | Friday, 11 Jun 2010 | Views [352]

So I returned to good ol' Baan Rub Aroon, my home away from home, and awaited the return of my travel partner, Ben.  I had a day or so to myself, so I took advantage of the me time and wandered aimlessly through the food market and the streets that branched ... Read more >

The Lost Week: Exit Stage Left

THAILAND | Thursday, 10 Jun 2010 | Views [282]

I admit it, I bailed a couple days early. With me only having a couple days left on my volunteer stint and having wrapped up the projects I was working on, I decided to make a hasty exit stage left late Thursday afternoon.  After saying goodbye to ... Read more >
