    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: Swiss Engagement Spot

    Since we just had our one year wedding anniversary, I’m still on a sappy love high and wanted to do a Photo Friday post showcasing the spot where we got engaged. In May 2013, David and I took a trip around Europe. We’d been together for three years at that point, but somehow we had never taken a trip with just the two of us before! So we wanted to make the most of it.…

    Photo Friday: Look Up in London

    By Alexis  Well…my laptop has finally crapped out on me after about six months of threatening to do so. It hasn’t even turned on for three days now. *sigh* I can still post from my phone (like I’m doing now), but I don’t have access to any of my photos or editing software that’s on my computer, soooooo there may be a lack of posts until I can get it fixed or get a new…

    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…

    Photo Friday: Somewhere in Austria

    By Alexis When I was a sophomore in college, I studied abroad in Salzburg, Austria for nine months. It was one of the best times of my life. Young, carefree, and living in Europe…what more could you ask for?? My time in Austria is really what solidified my wanderlust since I was able to see most of Europe then (it’s where I racked up most of my country tally). With our monthly country adventure now in…

    Photo Friday: Chiang Mai Shadows

    By Alexis In the week before we left Chiang Mai, I was finished teaching, so I spent most of my time planning and preparing for our upcoming trips, but one day I was able to just take a walk around town and leisurely (well, as leisurely as you can get when it’s 100 degrees out) snap some photos. I saw these shadows on the moat road that goes around Chiang Mai’s Old City and waited till…

    Photo Friday: Quintessentially Thai

    By Alexis I cannot believe we are leaving Thailand in just a few short days!! We head to Japan on Tuesday, which means this will probably be my last Photo Friday post I EVER write in Thailand and that just blows my mind. So this week I wanted to share something that just screams Thailand, and to me, that’s a classic longboat shot down in the islands. If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you might…

    Photo Friday: Temple Reflection

    By Alexis When you’re living somewhere (as opposed to vacationing), it’s not every weekend that you go out sightseeing. David and I tend to lean toward the homebody temperment, but with our time in Chiang Mai quickly ticking away, we knew we had to get up and start checking things off our Thailand bucket list. One of those goals was to see the jaw-dropping temple that is Wat Rong Khun, better known as the White Temple. We…

    Photo Friday: Hawaiian Sunset

    By Alexis The first night I met David, I remember thinking he was sooo cool for being from Hawaii. Now I’m married to him and can honestly say that, even after years of being together, I still gush over the fact that he grew up somewhere so magical (I particularly love when he speaks a little pidgin, haha). Makes me feel like I somehow snagged an exotic prince! The summer after I graduated college, I…

    Photo Friday: Child Monk Crossing

    By Alexis I’m back! Sorry for the delay in doing these Photo Friday posts the last couple weeks. I had a family emergency and had to take a last-minute flight back to the States, but luckily David was able to keep the blog going while I was away. For those curious, everything turned out okay back home and now I’m back in Thailand, worry-free :) Since I took a little hiatus, I wanted to make sure…

    Photo Friday: Inside Angkor Wat, Cambodia

    By David My first Southeast Asia experience came in 2010, only a couple months after I met Alexis. I remember this night very clearly — I was hanging out with Alexis in her dorm room when my cousin texted me and said, “Do you want to go to Cambodia?” “Uhhh… yes?” I responded. “I’m going with a volunteer group but my mom will only let me go if you come too. She’ll pay for you…

    Photo Friday: Views From Our Apartment

    By David Yes, you read that right… By David. I’m stepping in this week with a Photo Friday guest post (don’t all let out a sigh of disappoint at once). Because I’m so obviously not as talented as my amazing wife, I didn’t want to throw one picture up here touting its quality and have you all be supremely underwhelmed. So I thought I would share a small collection of photos — photos that provide a…
