His Take: How Much You Can Expect To Spend In Thailand

His Take: How Much You Can Expect To Spend In Thailand

Alright, so I’m doing this one in a bit of a different format than most of the countries we’ve been to so far.

His Take: Almost Rock Climbing on Railay Beach

While Jamie and I were living in Toronto, and prior to us embarking on our painfully strict budget with the purpose of saving for Southeast Asia, we were becoming rock-climbing fanatics.

His Take: New Year’s Eve in Bangkok

Having known before leaving home that Jamie and I would be spending New Year’s Eve in Southeast Asia, Bangkok wasn’t exactly at the top of my list of places we’d be likely to bring in 2014. I had imagined us counting down to midnight while packed on to a beach, sipping buckets, with 30,000 other travelers on a notorious party ... Read More »

His Take: The White and Black Temple in Chiang Rai

Before we arrived in Chiang Rai, the city was a bit of a mystery to both Jamie and I. We had heard that it was a good launching point from which to hop on the slowboat to Laos, with a few memorable sites to check out around town for a couple of days. We had casually read something about a ... Read More »
