Oahu and Traveling Home

USA | Tuesday, 6 Jun 2017 | Views [258]

Sunday, we started the day off with a snorkeling trip out of the Hilton at Waikiki. We booked the trip overnight and were not certain that the booking had been successful, so we went over to the hotel a little early to make sure we had a place on the ... Read more >


USA | Saturday, 3 Jun 2017 | Views [253]

On Thursday, we started off the day making eggs at the apartment then caught an Uber to pick up a rental car. We had plans to explore a bit of the island so we needed a rental car to make that easier. We get dropped off at the Economy Rental lot and ... Read more >

THAILAND | Tuesday, 30 May 2017 | Views [323]

On Sunday, a group of us had talked about going for a short hike to a waterfall near Chiang Mai but some of the people who were going to go were far too hungover from the night before to have any desire to go. Maddie and I decided to postpone the hike ... Read more >

Still in Chiang Mai

THAILAND | Saturday, 27 May 2017 | Views [340]

Thursday was an early morning as I had to hurry and grab breakfast from 7-11, let me explain. Remember in previous posts that 7-11’s are everywhere, EVERYWHERE, and it is difficult to find time for breakfast when the excursions usually leave pretty ... Read more >

THAILAND | Wednesday, 24 May 2017 | Views [373]

Chiang Mai

THAILAND | Tuesday, 23 May 2017 | Views [303]

I am very glad I made the switch in hostels. People here are way more outgoing and it is much more comfortable sleeping. Yesterday, I had about a 15 minute walk between them and it was a hot one. It is on average 100 degrees F up in Chiang Mai the last ... Read more >

Advanced Diving, Koh Tao

THAILAND | Thursday, 18 May 2017 | Views [364]

After discussing the diving options with my instructor later that evening, I decided to go through with the “Advanced Adventurer” course. It gives you another 5 dives and includes a night time dive, which is what sold it for me. My instructor ... Read more >

Koh Tao

THAILAND | Tuesday, 16 May 2017 | Views [568]

As we jumped in a taxi to head to the ferry boat to the island of Koh Tao, it seemed as pretty much everyone who was on the island for the “Full Moon” party was heading over to the new island. I saw all of the same faces on the boat of people ... Read more >

Ko Phangan

THAILAND | Friday, 12 May 2017 | Views [366]

My flight from Bangkok to Surat Thani was a short hour flight, no issues at all. The Surat Thani airport is the smallest thing I have ever seen. It makes the Lansing airport look like a palace. It is exactly like the Sault Ste Marie airport...2 gates.... Read more >


THAILAND | Tuesday, 9 May 2017 | Views [376]

The flight from Munich, Germany to Bangkok, Thailand was about 10 hours. Not bad at all since I just watched movies most of the time. The biggest issue was the time changes. I left Munich at 2:30 pm Germany time, so that puts me in Thailand at about ... Read more >

Munich 2

GERMANY | Saturday, 6 May 2017 | Views [302]

The last day of traveling with (part of) my family had finally arrived. Not saying that it is a good thing, it just means that I am getting closer and closer to taking off on my own for a month. A lot of planning had been done by my brother and parents ... Read more >

Munich 1

GERMANY | Thursday, 4 May 2017 | Views [351]

According to the german weatherman, our first full day in Munich was supposed to be the best weather. We decided to go out to the Nazi concentration camp memorial at Dachau. It was about a 40 minute train ride northeast-ish out of Munich, then you take ... Read more >

The German Alps!

GERMANY | Tuesday, 2 May 2017 | Views [1104]

We made our way, through the clouds and rain, back into Germany along the southern border. It was a nice 2 hour drive over to the Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castles as we were driving through the valleys between the mountains. We made it over ... Read more >

Salzburg, Austria

AUSTRIA | Monday, 1 May 2017 | Views [422]

Made it out of Salzburg, Austria in one piece. I am slightly disappointed in the human race after sitting through a 4 hour Sound of Music bus tour that my mom wanted to go on, but i will get to that later. We spent a day and a half in Salzburg and I ... Read more >

GERMANY | Saturday, 29 Apr 2017 | Views [664]

We successfully made it out of Berlin, heading north to the small, small, SMALL town of Schwanbeck. The total population of the town was about 115 people. A (some number of greats) great grandfather of mine was baptized in a church in that area, so ... Read more >


GERMANY | Thursday, 27 Apr 2017 | Views [723]

I have finally spent some time in GERMANY! I am currently writing from das Autobahn. Bryan just topped out at 135 km/hr (disappointingly not that fast), maybe he made it faster, but 135 was the highest I saw from the back seat. I think my mom’... Read more >
