Where’s Wally: Bangkok

Wally is hanging out on Sukhumvit Soi 7/1. Wally heard that was where a good deal of the on-site filming of The Hangover 2 was shot in Bangkok. Sukhumvit Soi 7/1 is a street that makes one feel a little dirty just walking down. It’s a bar street, but not the kind of a bar a couple goes in together -so after passing through – we went elsewhere for a Sing-Ha beer.

During our stay in Bangkok, we heard all kinds of funny spoilers about the movie, but we’ll keep most of them to ourselves and only say that Bill Clinton was in town at the same time as the cast, and stopped by the set…

Let’s Get Out of This Country

Border Crossing into Laos


If you find yourself in Thailand, it’s not a bad place to be. The food is good, the beaches are good, and you can knock yourself out doing anything from watching elephants paint or training in Muay Thai. But after thirty days we were ready to head to the next country. (Maybe one with a few less lady boys). More

Eat that up, It’s Good For you.

Loving the Food, in Chiang Mai, Thailand

I think to love traveling you have to love trying new and exotic foods. If you do, every meal can be an exciting experience. Otherwise, it can be terrifying. Thais eat a lot of things we don’t. It’s not uncommon to see rodents and strange animal parts cooked up, especially the further you go from tourist areas. I think they can get away with it because the sauces and spices are so good, but we prefer ours with chicken and such. More

Everyday is a Winding Road

Wanderings in Pai, Thailand

We were ready to leave the beaches and do something new. But when we got to Chiang Mai, it fell a little flat. So…we got out. We hopped on a minibus and went on the very winding road to a place that is famous with backpackers as a spot to do…nothing. That’s right, there’s nothing to do in Pai. It’s just some town in the mountains that has a pretty awesome night market (we love a good night market). More

The Full Moon Party, Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand

The Full Moon Party is believed to have started in 1985 on Haad Rin beach in Koh Pha Ngan. It was a legendary party that was spread to other backpackers traveling the region until it steadily grew bigger and bigger. These days some of the parties have as many as 60,000 people at them and you can also attend half-moon parties in the Jungle. (Then they have black moon parties, and jungle parties and I have no idea what exactly they entail). Other islands around the world have their own full moon parties these days, but none of them are anywhere near the scale as the ones in Koh Pha Ngan. More

Christmas Luxury in Phuket, Thailand

Once you get into the swing of backpacking it becomes clear what a budget room is worth. $15 to $20 is pretty standard in most of the area. $25 is a usually a rip-off unless it includes cable TV, a balcony and a free breakfast. The idea of a room costing $350 a night in such a part of the world is hard to put into perspective. But that’s what our room in Phuket was quoted at online. More

Island in the Sun

Koh Lipe, Thailand


It’s true. When the sun is out, and there are no boat motors revving, or children crying – all you can hear is a subtle lapping of the water, and all you see is the perfect Thai beach with the clear blue water and white soft sand and a few longboats. That’s it. That’s all Koh Lipe is. More

Where’s Wally: Thailand

Wally has found himself in a dark cave in the middle of nowhere in Northeast Thailand. More
