Greetings from Bangkok! It’s already proving delicious!! Evidence 1 — Yolk of perfection: Evidence 2 — Fresh honeycomb: A perfect method for coping with jetlag!
Our final stop in Thailand was at a lovely beachy spot: Phi Phi Island. And it was truly a slice of paradise. The white beaches led you into the blue blue ocean, where you could walk out for 10 minutes into the ocean, and still be only chest-deep. We did a lot of swimming, both […]
After our wonderful adventures in Chiang Mai, we headed down to Phuket for a bit of beach holiday! Phuket is known as a beach destination — there are tons of tall hotel towers on Patong beach: But we were lucky enough to stay at the quiet end of the beach — and ohhhh was it […]
In Chiang Mai, we found a treat of a restaurant, and we liked it so much we went back again — Whole Earth Restaurant! Whole Earth offers an extensive vegetarian menu (along with omnivorous options), and when they say vegetarian, they mean it — no sneaky fish sauce or shrimp paste anywhere to be seen. […]
One of our tours in Chiang Mai included a visit to four temples — including the gorgeous Wat Chiang Man, which houses the Crystal Buddha, and Wat Suan Dok. Our first stop was at Wat Suan Dok, where we saw a monk on cell phone. We had also seen a monk in a mall in […]

After our adventures in Bangkok, we headed north to Chiang Mai. Chiang Mai is the largest city in northern Thailand, and was the capital of the Lanna Kingdom — which means it is a perfect place to see fine examples of Lanna architecture (older than what we’d seen in Bangkok). We charged up for our […]
My favourite part of our time in Bangkok was actually a day trip we took outside of Bangkok. We drove out into the surrounding areas in order to go visit the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, about 90k (56 miles) from Bangkok. En route, we stopped to visit a salt field. Salt can only be harvested […]
