Kenya, part 1 – Safari Time!

Our time in Asia was over, but the fun was only just getting started. There was a lot to look forward to for our 8 weeks in Africa, but I would be lying if I didn't admit what you all already know--it's all about the elephants! 🐘😍 Day 200: Welcome to Kenya! Our flight from Doha …

Bali, Bali, Bo-Bali

Greece was lovely, but I was ready to head back to the tropics. Though a bit illogical to head all the way back to Asia, I was determined to make it to Bali on this trip and we found a way to make it work post-Christmas with some flight finagling. In retrospect, I should have …

10 Days of Ancient Greece

To say that I've been slacking would be a serious understatement...sorry! Here we go again: After 2 much needed (semi-relaxing) weeks over the Christmas holidays with family in Luxembourg, we headed towards Greece. We decided ahead of time that this would be our only European stop on our RTW tour, mostly because we've both been …

Philippines, part 2

Here’s the second half of our Filipino adventures: Day 141, continued: Electricity is overrated? Once I had my pants back, I was a much happier woman. My stress (and anger) levels were reduced enough that I could happily take a nap on the ferry ride back to Cebu with the assistance of my wonderful travel …

Philippines, part 1

Clearly I'm struggling to stay on the blogging bandwagon (#fail) but here's some more catch-up... Day 131: Doritos for first dinner This day was mostly lost to travel, so there's not much to say, BUT I would like to report that the Manila airport is a tragedy, or at least the domestic terminal is. Our …

Vietnam – aka rain, rain, go away

The catch-up continues... Day 117: Another day lost to travel, another crap hotel We left Phuket in the mid-afternoon and had a layover in Bangkok on the way to Hanoi, so most of this day was pretty uneventful. We arrived late in the evening and then spent way too much time figuring out the visa …

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 …

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 …

Thailand, part 1 – Bangkok

Out of all of our Asian destinations, I was most excited for Thailand, so here we go! Day 88, part 2: More curry everything, please Our arrival in Bangkok (from Kathmandu) was smooth, especially because it was only upon arrival that I realized that US and EU citizens don't need a visa to enter the …
