Bangkok

Unfortunately my time in Bali had to end and I had to get back to the real world….well the real traveling world. It was time for me to embark on my next country; Thailand. Thailand is a country known for its elaborate temples, its beautiful mountain ranges, its immaculate beaches in the south, a crazy capital city and of course it’s amazing food (Mmmm Pad Thai). I flew into Thailand’s most famous city and its capital, Bangkok, and boy was my breath taken away. Bangkok is known to be an erratic, crazy and hot and I can tell you, all of the above is true. Averaging 95 degrees...

“And I Love Her….”

Yes, I did find love in Bali!!!!! Her name is the Gili Islands. The Gili islands are a place of rest and relaxiation (and sometimes partying Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan are popular destionations for travelers who like white sand beaches, beautiful views of sun rises and sunsets and general tranquality. No cars are allowed on any of these islands so your only means of transportation are horse and carriage carts, the iron horse (a bicycle) and of course your feet. The best part about staying on these islands is that you’ll realize that you don’t want to go...

Koh Phangan

The south of Thailand is known for its beautiful tropical islands. Some of the more popular include Phuket, Koh Samui, Koh Phi Phi and of course Koh Phangan. Unfortunately due to my time constraints I could only visit one of these islands and I choose Koh Phangan. Koh Phangan is very popular amongst the backpacker community because of the Full Moon Party. This party, as its name suggests, happens on the night of the full moon of each month and some call it “the best party on the planet”. This beach party originated in the 1980s and draws crowds of 20,000-30,000 people. Given...

Eating, Praying annddd Loving in Bali?

After a few days of hanging out on the beach, I decided to head up to Ubud for some Zen and relaxation. Ubud, which is often referred to as Bali’s spiritual capital, has become increasingly popular with tourists over the years. Ubud boasts beautiful tiered rice fields, tons of ancient temples, places to do yoga, arts and crafts and of course really great food. The most central parts of Ubud are very touristy and have lots of cafe’s and restaurants that cater to tourists, but a 5 minute bike ride will whisk you away from it all into blissful paradise. Heath (a friend that...

4 Days in Bali turns into weeks

4 Days in Bali turns to weeks.As I mentioned in the last post I initially came to Bali, Indonesia to learn to dive. My plan was to spend 4 days in this region diving and then move on to some of the great sites of southern Thailand. Well that plan failed miserably. The beautiful beaches of Bali are one of the main reasons that people tend to visit this island and I couldn’t pass up this opportunity. While Bali is a favorite to those looking for the perfect beach wedding and newlyweds looking for a romantic getaway it has also become very popular with the young and single crowd....

Bali

There are two main reasons why I wanted to visit South East Asia. First, I wanted to learn how and why the cultures of the 11 countries of this region are so similar, but very very different (yes, same same…but different). Secondly, I really really wanted to learn how to dive!!! I’ve always loved going to Aquariums and tend to visit them in the cities that I travel to. I’d never given diving much thought until I visited the Parque Explora Aquarium in Medellin, Colombia and was amazed by a display when Nat says “Yus, you know this is the way it looks underwater right?….why...
