The last tango in.. Bali.

By D Before we ended our six months of overseas adventures, we decided to spend a few days in paradise. Bali is a small island with a lot of variation. There are the beachy areas (also where most of the partying happens) up to the volcanic peaks more toward the center of the island. We […]

Western Australia via Campervan

It’s been awhile. Mostly because this blog post overwhelmed both of us any time we thought of it. It’s a bit long. It’s probably more than a bit rough. But we had to get it posted.. otherwise, we may never post again. Without further ado: Western Australia, via Campervan. #vanlife For those of you that […]

Much of this is due to the fact that it is the ‘new’ tourist destination. By that I mean the country was […]

Thailand | Chiang Mai

By S Thailand is popular tourist destination. And when I say popular, I mean realllllly popular. According to Wikipedia, 29 million international tourists visited Thailand in 2015 (the total population of Thailand is 67 million, BTW). That works out to just under 80,000 tourists entering the country each day. 80K per day! If all of […]
