  • Thailand! Part 2

    October 25, 2020 by

    Part two of our Thailand adventures takes place in Chiang Mai. I was very excited to see the northern part of the country as well as eat one of my favorite foods, khao soi, and the city did not disappoint! We loved walking around in the walled city, exploring the alleyways and eating more delicious… Read more

  • Isolation updates!

    April 22, 2020 by

    Hey there, long time no blogging. So the last two weeks on the road were a bit of a doozie and I didn’t get to finish a lot of posts I was working on but I’ll update you quickly on what’s been going on with us! We had been monitoring the whole corona virus situation… Read more

  • Thailand! Part 1

    February 22, 2020 by

    Hi Friends! Sorry it’s been awhile since my last update — I guess we have been having too much fun? Or more likely that it hasn’t been on my radar to write recently. But I am hoping to crank out the rest of the posts from Southeast Asia before we head to India. I decided… Read more

  • Thoughts while traveling…part 1

    February 9, 2020 by

    So I was thinking of maybe documenting some interesting thoughts or things we reflect on while we are traveling. I am not sure if this will stick, but lets see… How did people travel before google maps and ride sharing services?!? I am happy to be doing this trip with those apps my phone. That… Read more

  • Malaysia!

    February 6, 2020 by

    I’ll admit, Malaysia wasn’t a country that I thought we would spend any significant amount of time in during our travels, but I am so glad that we did. We explored two different cities, Kuala Lumpur and Penang. We learned so much about the different cultures living together and experienced our first temples. Kuala Lumpur… Read more

  • Singapore!

    January 20, 2020 by

    Singapore was so great! It was a great way to dip our toes into Southeast Asia. The city was so clean, easy to get around, beautiful to look at, and had super delicious food. Oh and the signs were in English most of the time! Really, what more could I have asked for. Let’s get… Read more

  • Australia Week 2: Kangaroo Island and Adelaide

    January 13, 2020 by

    Our second week in Australia was much more exciting than we bargained for — we had originally planned on spending more time on the southern coast but our trip was cut short by the bushfire crisis, but more on that later. We still had a great time for our last week: Matt saw his first… Read more

  • Australia Week 1: Sydney

    January 8, 2020 by

    Our first week in Australia was spent exploring Sydney and the beaches. We wandered around gardens looking for parrots, enjoyed the waterfront, hiked between beaches along the coast, and enjoyed the New Years Eve fireworks shows in the harbor. A lot of our days were spent in smoky haze due to the fires west/south/north of… Read more

  • New Zealand Week 3: Wine, seals, mountains, parrots!

    December 30, 2019 by

    Our last week in New Zealand was yet another whirlwind of driving, new cities, and taking in the sights. Some highlights include wine tasting, hanging out in seal colonies in Kaikoura, taking a helicopter ride over the glaciers, and luging in Queenstown. South Island Wine Country Our South Island adventure started with a ferry ride… Read more
