“Bangkok, Thailand is a massive beautiful city that is always busy and filled with tons of people and shopping centers.” - Traveler Austin Romito

From eating the Thai-riffic street food that many say is the best food they’d ever pad,

to enjoying a brake when he was wheelie tired from exploring all day,

it’s safe to say that Austin had a great time in the boun-Thai-ful city of Bangkok.

“One of my favorite spots was Sticky Waterfalls outside of Chiang Mai, it was a warm waterfall that washes over sticky rocks. The rocks allow you to climb up the waterfall! We had a local guide Tuk, who took us to a lot of locally favorite spots around Chiang Mai.”

From being boulder than the rest and harnessing his inner climber,  

to exploring the gray area between close and too close (woah Nellie! Better hold on to your trunks! 😊),

to going on an action peaked trip to the top of a mountain to see the Doi Suthep temple,

Austin really embraced his adventurous side exploring Chiang Mai.

 

Here’s to finding your adventurous side (while also keeping your safe-Thai in mind) & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

Siem Reap, Cambodia is one of my most favorite destinations. The history (both ancient and modern) of the country is absolutely fascinating. I am a veteran of the awe inspiring and massive Angkor Wat temple complexes...many times over, because it never gets boring.

Goodbye, snow. HELLO, flowers!

The spring blossoms just sprung here this week and it’s about darn time!

With the COVID-19 pandemic, an economic downturn, and worldwide lockdowns, I think it’s safe to say that spring 2020 wasn’t what we were expecting.

But now that I see the beautiful flowers on the hills behind my home, I’m reminded of what the Spring season represents. It represents the hope that good weather is coming and that we’re exiting out of a dark, cold winter. 

And, in light of the current situation, I’d like to think that it also represents the hope that better things are coming and that we will be exiting out of this pandemic (and it’s negative effects) pretty soon.
