Adjusting to life in the “real world”

Sometimes you wish you could do it all over again. TD and I returned from our trip in late 2011 and are firmly entrenched back home in San Francisco. At that point, we were definitely ready to come home. Everything got to be too much after a while – the … Continue Reading →

Open your Golden Gate!

Words can’t do justice to the feelings of joy and the swelling in our chests as we saw this vista….home!

Hiking in Sun Valley, Iadho

The west coast is the best coast

We could feel ourselves being pulled, like so many settlers before us, out west. After our national park adventure, we visited TD’s college friends who lived in Ketchum, Idaho. It’s an incredible landscape out there with mountains, rivers and even the craters of the moon. It’s no wonder that Hemingway … Continue Reading →

Yellowstone is like another world

Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons…America the beautiful

After yet another lapse in blog posts, we resume our story at Yellowstone. When we last left off, TD and I spent some QT with our friends in St. Louis. Our next stop was Boulder, Colorado where we hooked up with our homies who used to live in San Francisco. … Continue Reading →

Back in Thailand – in St. Louis

Just like those intrepid settlers from my favorite childhood video game, Oregon Trail (I’m talking the green and white version, not the upgrade to color) we began our trip west in St. Louis. We were visiting our good friends Za and Josh from our Pun Pun Internship in Thailand. After … Continue Reading →

Atlantic seaboard bonanza

For about two weeks after Vermont we ran the gauntlet from Maine to North Carolina, visiting friends and family along the way. It feels strange to write about these domestic locales, so let’s just stick to the highlights.

I have to be honest, this travel blog has been the last thing on our minds recently, and in fact I haven’t given it two thoughts since getting back to San Francisco three months ago… that is, until I received this message from a reader last week: “hi, for the … Continue Reading →


Wholesome Vermont fun!

What better way to ease into the US than whiling away a few weeks with family in the picturesque countryside of Vermont. Get ready for a heavy dose of Americana… 4th of July parades!

The last stop – U.S.A

At long last, our final destination – the land of milk and honey. After 26 months, 34 countries and almost $100,000 later, we are finally back in the States…for good. How to sum up over two years of life on the road? I don’t think we can fully express what … Continue Reading →

What wopuld a ferry ride be without Mariachis

Narcos show up in the most unexpected places

Patzcuaro is a lovely city situated in the highlands of Michoacan Mexico. Surrounded by pine forests and lakes, and with beautiful crafts from the local indigenous people, is a popular weekend spot for Chilangos to escape the craziness of Mexico City. It’s just about the last place we expected to … Continue Reading →
