Thailand, part 3 – Phuket

I haven’t posted in a long while and I blame it partially on laziness but most recently on the worst internet service ever. That said...can you really complain while on #permanentvacation? Here’s to catching up…eventually. Day 106 – Day 113: Eat, tan, read, sleep, repeat After wrapping up our short time in Cambodia, it was …

Angkor WHAT?! (aka Siem Reap)

Before continuing onto part 3 of our Thai adventures, we first headed to Cambodia for a week of adventures in Siem Reap. Day 100 (!): All things Angkor Another Air Asia flight under our belts, we arrived in Siem Reap in the early afternoon and met up with our pre-arranged tuk tuk driver to get …

Photo Post – Terrific Thailand

After a few very hectic weeks in India and Nepal, we had a little bit more relaxation time planned for Thailand, so there aren't quite as many photos this time around, but we still got to see a lot. Enjoy! (And of course, there was our Cambodia temple-marathon in between our Thailand destinations, but I'm …

Thailand, part 2 – Chiang Mai

Our Thai adventures continue... Day 94: Bugs...yum? We had yet another Air Asia flight that morning, this time to head to Chiang Mai, a city in northern Thailand. The flight passed without issue and we were at our new hotel--Rendezvous Classic House--by mid afternoon. We found a random spot for lunch that afternoon (there weren't …

India, part 1

Our time in Oceania was over too soon, and now it was time for Asia. We decided to start in India and slowly work our way East, partially based on weather (some warned us it would be too hazy in India later in the year) and partially based on flight paths. Also based on a …

#FijiTime

And now our final #islandlife stop (for now): Fiji. Day 65: Time travel is exhausting We left Tahiti the night of September 21st, at 2:30am--so really, just REALLY early on September 22nd.

Tahiti – paradise part 3

And now onto Tahiti... Day 61: Onto Mama Paradise, continued A short flight from Maupiti and now we were in Tahiti! We picked up our rental car, which poor Ben hated because it was a manual with a 'shitty clutch', and followed our Airbnb hosts to the studio apartment we were staying at. We originally …

Maupiti – paradise part 2

Continuing our catch up... Day 58: From Paradise to Paradise Jr. Sadly, the day had come to leave Bora Bora. I ate my feelings over breakfast and off we went. Fortunately, we were on our way to another one of French Polynesia's beautiful islands - Maupiti. Most people have never heard of this island given …

Bora Bora = HEAVEN

This post is really late…sorry! We haven’t had proper internet in weeks (#islandlife) and now we’re on safari in India so it’s even worse, but we’re trying. Here goes! Strangely enough, we left Auckland on September 11th. In theory it should be a day like any other, but it always has a strange, ominous feeling …
