Doi Inthanon National Park hosts the highest point in Thailand at 2565.3341 meters above sea level and has an impressive collection of birds, animals, plants and flowers within its border. As Chiang Mai is starting to heat up and smoke, it is a nice retreat from the city. Our journey began with our friend channeling his […]

In less than a week my mom will be visiting and I will be back to my “second home” Bangkok! I fear that lately I’ve not been terribly motivated to write about our mini adventures. We are settled in to Chiang Mai after being here a month and perhaps it feels a bit too much […]

My last Kyoto post left off at the Seiryoji Temple, in Arashiyama. From there we boarded a bus, still hungry from our failed attempt to find our desired restaurant, and my clever friend navigated us across town to the Philosopher’s Walk. With her navigation, the bus system was very easy and an all day pass equated […]

Flashback Friday! Laos is one of my favorite countries because of the amazing people but it’s been sorely neglected from this blog. Today, that gets better with Wat Sisaket, the oldest monastery in Laos. I visited Wat Sisaket on our first trip to Laos. It was the morning of our last day before heading to Vang […]

Saturday, we headed back to Ayutthaya to share this wonderful city with James’ dad! I mentioned in a previous post that this is one of my favorite cities in Thailand and this marked my third trip (in 9 months).
