Sure, the Agung Khalia villa was like paradise in the midst of green, lush paddy fields. The views from the bedrooms are of paddy fields while from the living room you can see your gorgeous swimming pool. But the best part of staying at the Agung...

Chao Phraya River, Thailand
A great way to see a lot of the flavor of Bangkok is to take the Chao Phraya River Taxi up and down the line. It's cheap, you see the sights and sounds of Bangkok, and you also get to see the locals in their commute. I stayed on until we hit the...

Tui Beach koh rong island, Kâmpóng Saôm 18300, Cambodia
Waking up early in the tropics is a must! Our first morning on Koh Rong we awoke to this view from our charming Tree House located right on the beach. Should we linger on the porch or descend to the deserted calm beach for a walk along the...
Mount Rinjani, Sembalun Lawang, Sembalun, East Lombok Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
Taking a 3 day/2 night Rinjani trek at the end of wet season is not the most brilliant idea I’ve ever had, but it is one of my most memorable experiences. After climbing up what felt more like a riverbed than a trekking path, we shed our wet shoes...

The Bangkok Mules - Mekhong rum, brown sugar, ginger ale, lemongrass - at Salt went down a little bit too easily. It was the Mekhong rum, a classic spiced rum flavored with Thai herbs and spices that starts bitter and finishes sweet, that took me...
George St, The Rocks NSW 2000, Australia
The Rocks is undoubtedly one of Sydney's most beautiful areas. Follow George Street until the very end and it’s almost like you’ve stepped back in time—there are cobblestones under your feet, quaint stores to browse, and great pubs to visit. One...
Luang Prabang, Laos
The rural village near Luang Prabang was nearly deserted. Me and my friend had stopped to explore this small, nondescript hamlet on our way to the Kouang Si waterfalls. It was mid-morning, when men were at work and kids were in school. The only...
