    Photo Friday: Bali’s Blue Point

    There’s this thing I do sometimes with places I’ve visited…I close my eyes and conjure up a colorful mental snapshot of the place. In my memory, for example, London is all white and matte grays. Nice, France on the other hand is muted orange and sandy browns. And Bali is pure blue. Have you ever noticed that? That an entire place can be summed up in a single color or two? David and I ended…

    Photo Friday: Thai Nights

    By Alexis We’ve been in Sanur, Bali for about a week and a half now and today’s the day we get back on the move! We’re heading over to a new place in Balangan, Bali where we’ll be stressed about my unemployment relax in the sun for a couple weeks. We’ll be staying in a pretty sweet looking bungalow that’s walking distance to the beach and even has a pool! Perfect for shark-a-phobes like me :)…

    Photo Friday: Back in Bali

    By Alexis We’re back! We loved our visit to Bali last October, so when David’s mom and little brother said they were intrested in taking a surf vacation here, we knew we had to come back and meet up with them. The photo above was snapped out the car window during a day-long private tour of the island (a highly recommended activity in Indonesia! Only costs about $40 USD). One thing I really like about Bali…

    Indonesia May Allow Visa-Free Entry

    By David Only two more days left in Thailand. It’s crazy to think back on this whole journey and to then realize it’s over. Alexis and I have been doing a farewell food tour of all our favorite places in Chiang Mai over the past week or so (so much massaman…). We’re definitely ready to move on to the next chapter of our lives, but it is a little bittersweet as well knowing the dream…

    Why It’s Important To Leave Online Reviews

    By David Back in October, we rented an apartment in Bali for a few days through Airbnb. Like all of our Airbnb experiences, the host was nice, everything went smoothly, and we had a great time. Something interesting happened after we checked out though. After we checked out, I left this review: I thought I was really fair. I didn’t want to be mean, just honest. I made it very clear that despite the downsides of the…

    5 Travel Lessons From Our SE Asia Trip

    By David Since we’re getting ready head out on another adventure in a little over a month, I figured it was time to finally finish this post I started back in October (you are correct, I’m the worst). When we got back to Chiang Mai after our Borneo, Bali, and Ko Lanta trip, we said we would post about the latest travel lessons we learned. Obviously, that never happened. But now, as we’re gearing up…

    Three Perfect Days in Bali

    By David After four great days in Borneo, we boarded an AirAsia flight from Kota Kinabalu to Bali. The two and half hour flight was $91 a person and touched down in Bali just after 8 PM. The flight itself was spectacular — check out the photo Alexis shared in “Back in Chiang Mai!” In addition to the beautiful sunset, we also passed through a lightning storm for about an hour. It was really something to see. Where to Stay…
