Renting An Apartment In Thailand
By Dave

Vicky and I decided to change things up in 2014 (well, technically December 2013), by renting an apartment for 39 days. After two weeks trekking in Nepal, we decided it was time for some R&R and to catch up on some work. There were a…

Volunteering at Mindful Farms in Thailand
By Vicky

For some reason I thought the idea of volunteering on an organic farm outside of Chiang Mai would be perfect for both Dave and myself. (Later, we realized that it would be perfect for her). I heard of Mindful Farms through fellow travel bloggers Honey…

The Golden Triangle and the Drug Trade
By Vicky

More frequently though the Golden Triangle evokes images of opium poppies, hillside tribe and the drug trade that went on in this region for years. The name itself originates from the high price of opium, leading itself to being known as black gold, which was purchased with gold. With the amount of gold and opium that passed hands, this area is now known as the Golden Triangle.

Our Favorite Temple In Thailand: The White Temple
By Dave

Grandma’s Thai Recipes Cooking Class Review
By Vicky

After taking many cooking classes in Thailand I was ready to take my final one in Chiang Mai. I chose Grandma’s Thai Recipes for its stellar TripAdvisor reviews and the fact that the cooking class would be private, and you get to pick which dishes to prepare. While group cooking classes are fun I do enjoy the personal interaction and conversations with the instructor that comes with a private class.

Biking Around Sukhothai – Photo Post
By Dave and Vicky

Sukhothai literally means “Dawn of Happiness.” Well, we were pretty happy to be there and rent a bike to explore some ancient ruins. They’re reasonably well preserved and compact, so you can do the whole thing in a few hours. There isn’t too much of a story here, so we’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!
