Our daily backpack: what to bring for a day of adventure.

Eric and I have gotten into a routine of what to bring each day while we venture around cities and beaches on our southeast Asia trip. We’ve decided on a backpack because it’s easiest to carry, distributes weight well, carries a lot, and works for riding scooters, walking in the rain, or just being out and about.

For a daily adventure, on average, here’s what we pack: Continue reading Our daily backpack: what to bring for a day of adventure.

Peace out, Thailand! A preview of our adventure time in Taipei, Taiwan.

It’s been real, Thailand. Our visa is up and we are headed to Taipei, Taiwan. Bring on the cafes, the zoo, and panda shaped bread! I realize I’ve skipped over most of Bali & our three saweet weeks in Bangkok (ft. cute cat cafes & delicious street food) , but fear not – I will certainly catch y’all up on what we did there in the coming weeks. Promise.

Here’s a preview of the awesomeness that’s to come for our Taipei trip & some of our must see adventure time spots coming up in this week’s posts: Continue reading Peace out, Thailand! A preview of our adventure time in Taipei, Taiwan.

We Dig vs. We’d Ditch: Klong Prao Beach, Koh Chang

We pretty much adored every part of our trip to Klong Prao Beach on the beautiful island of Koh Chang. Not yet as touristy as what we’d experienced in Bali, Koh Chang truly captured our hearts.

Some splish, splashin’ adventure time at Paradise Resort and Spa – an amazing hotel that we stayed at for the week (think buffet breakfast with omelettes, fruit, & fresh bread, palm tree lined thin beaches, and swings… yes, swings).

We Dig vs We’d Ditch: Sanur, Bali

Welp, it’s official. Eric and I have set sail for southeast Asia. And there’s no one I’d rather go with (plus our pipsqueaks, Hati & Ernesto, duh).

Our first touch down: Taipei – we’ll leave the airport next time, Taiwan! Promise.

Adventures off the deep end.

This has been a long time coming. Internally & externally. Especially internally. I’ve always been driven – driven to do, to ‘succeed’, to excel, to create, to go. But along the way, I’ve realized that this need to succeed is short lived. I succeed at something, I feel the high, and then an emptiness creeps over like a vine tightening around my legs, growing up around my chest, and threatening to squeeze the very life out of me. The emptiness of, “What next? What now?”
