The last time I was in Bangkok over 5 years ago it was dirty, smelly, crazy, loud, you constantly got harassed on the street, and ripped off. Just take a look at this travel log from October 2010 of my first impressions. When I stepped out of the airport in Bangkok this time no taxi drivers swarmed me. I wasn’t greeted with the symphony of horns beeping and “taxi, taxi, need a taxi miss, where you go miss, taxi, taxi”. Military rule might not be good for everyone but it is great for tourists.… Read more
My original plan was to spend 2 weeks on Ko Phangan. I left early to go to Bangkok for various reasons, like spending too much money, wanting to spend time with friends, and cook my own food again. I have a little regret about that decision because it is such a wonderful little island I could probably spend 6 months on. There’s a good chance I’ll be visiting again!
It took quite a bit of travel to get to this beautiful island off the east coast of Thailand.… Read more
Hey folks! Thought I would give you a quick recap of my time in Bali and update you on my new adventures. If you are following me on Instagram or other social media you know that I decided to head to Thailand after a month in Bali. My visa was about to expire, which I could have extended but thought why not explore new lands. I heard Ko Phangan was a vegan heaven and I haven’t been there before so why not?!… Read more
I bet a lot of people wonder why I travel so much. They might not understand the wanderlust I feel when I’m back on US soil. If you took a glimpse into my life you’ll see no attachments, no mortgage, no husband, no children. I tried last year to “settle down”, plant some roots, start a new life in a new city, but it just didn’t sit right with me. When I thought long and hard about it, my gut was yelling at me to continue traveling.… Read more
It’s been over 5 months since my retreat in Sayulita where we survived the worst hurricane to hit Mexico (it didn’t hit our area thankfully!). I was going through my phone and realized I wrote a piece about the vegan food I found there and didn’t even post it here on the blog! Now I realize that I didn’t write a blog about the retreat at all. Shame on me.
The retreat was amazing, besides the hurricane scare. We stayed at Hotelito Los Suenos whose staff took great care of us and provided delicious breakfast and dinner each day.… Read more
Hello friends! If you read my last post I was feeling pretty in the dumps last week. This week is totally different. Maybe it was hormonal? I don’t really know but I’m moving on and getting excited about my future travels.
You probably know I started a new travel business offering unique, affordable getaways in beautiful locations with special guest teachers. I also started blogging over at my new website, and I forgot how much I LOVE writing! Blogging has fallen to the waist side over the last few years, but when I’m passionate about something the words just flow.… Read more
