After our adventures in northern Thailand, a two hour $40 flight took us down to the opposite end of Thailand to the wonderful beaches of Krabi. We spent nearly a week in this paradise, and we hoped the good weather continued to last as we had yet to have a bad weather day on our… Continue reading Seashells and Sun – Krabi, Thailand
This post could alternatively be called the greatest day of my existence, or maybe, the day my mouth formed a permanent grin, or even God, take my soul now, I’ve lived a full life. And yet, none of those titles would suffice what was one of, if not the greatest, day of my little 22 years of living. It is… Continue reading The Elephant Park – Chiang Mai

So, in true backpacker-budget-traveler fashion, we did the cheaper option and bought us a day trip to Berlin, Germany! I love Berlin.… Continue reading A Day in Berlin
The friend I’m traveling with, Alex, is Polish, so it was really important to her that we incorporate Poland into our European endeavors this summer! I obligingly agreed to do so, if only because I love adding countries to my “have seen” list. We took a flight from Paris to Warsaw, and then took Polskibus… Continue reading Polski Time
