Holy Duck! There’s a Fish in my Handbag!

Laos Visa Run

I woke up same time, same place, same intention, nothing different, just another day. But Holy Mother of God, today was all sorts of wacky. Not the sort of wacky that puts you in an animal hospital with a missing nipple, but rather the sort that … Continue reading →

HOW TO: Fix Writer’s Block on the Road

Writer's Block

I’ve had writer’s block for the past week and it’s driving me nuts. I love to write, and I want to write, but, the, words, just, won’t, flow. I keep starting new pieces, but after just one paragraph, I give up in frustration. Hmmm, what … Continue reading →

The Freakonomics of Gym Membership in India

Freakonomics Indian Gym Membership

Part of my love for travel is seeing how the world really works. If there’s one thing I learned quickly in this regard, it’s that prosperity back home is based on anything BUT better ways of living. Even simple tasks like joining a gym can … Continue reading →

The iPhone Camera Challenge

iPhone Camera Only

Ever since I started traveling, I’ve been torn by a common dilemma. I’ve wanted to capture moments as vividly as possible, but I’ve also wanted to travel as light as I can. Of course, high quality cameras take up a lot of room and weigh … Continue reading →

A Day in the Life of a Desert Explorer

Gobi Desert Mongolia

A zipper opening, that’s my wake-up call. No, please, not yet, just ten minutes more. Mornings have never been my strong point. And when you’re faced with walking for 8+ long hours every day for two months, the effort to get up is so, SO … Continue reading →

Taking New ‘Ways of Life’ Back Home

Small Efficient House

Maybe it’s just me, but as I’ve travelled, I’ve developed an odd habit of applying new surroundings to a mythical home I’ll build when I settle down. All of a sudden while writing a blog post, I’ll notice the way the window closes or the … Continue reading →

Cost of Living in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Cost of Living Thailand

I always thought the cost of living in India would be the lowest on Earth. But after spending only a few weeks there, I started to hear suggestions that Thailand was even cheaper. Could that possibly be? Our cost of living posts have become somewhat … Continue reading →

Expedia, Thanks For Nothing!

Expedia Review

As someone with a she’ll be right attitude, it’s unprecedented for me to leave for an airport early. Normally I get there with just enough time to spare because I only have one carry-on bag and anyway, ‘what the heck could possibly go wrong?’ This time … Continue reading →
