The past few days have been spent still exploring Bangkok - there is so much to see here! I've stayed near the "old town" area the past two nights, which is where the grand palace is. There are a lot of other gorgeous and historical buildings in the area as well. As noted before, there … Continue reading Temples and Songkran
I'm back in Thailand, exploring Bangkok! I started my SE Asia trip here 2 months ago, but didn't have much time to explore. There's so much to see and do here, I wanted to make sure I allowed myself enough time. The past few days I've been sightseeing in different districts, soaking in all the … Continue reading Back in Bangkok
I'm off to Bangkok tomorrow, after a month in Vietnam. My visa expires tomorrow, so I've got to leave the country! Originally I was planning to head to Cambodia, but I don't have enough time now. Realistically I probably could go, but it would be very rushed and I'd definitely like to check out Bangkok. … Continue reading Farewell Vietnam!

I had no idea I'd love Vietnam so much - the food was amazing, gorgeous scenery, friendly locals … Continue reading Last City in Vietnam

I spent a few hours at the beach and then went and checked out the "Fairy Stream." The … Continue reading Red Clay in Mui Ne

I wanted to go trekking, but you need at least 4 people for a group and I couldn't find … Continue reading Exploring Dalat
After a day in the beach town of Nha Trang, I headed up into the mountains to Dalat. Dalat is considered to be part of the central highlands region and is at an elevation of 4,900 feet. It's much cooler here (plus no humidity- yay!) and the scenery is absolutely gorgeous! It feels so good … Continue reading Motorcycles and Waterfalls
