Bangkok Tour

As a Bangkok veteran who has made almost twenty trips to the city, I love that I never seem to run out of new things to do. This round, though, I was showing around a first timer — and I felt very responsible for making sure he saw the traditional highlights of the city in addition…

Viator Ambassador

Today, I’m excited to announce that I am a member of the 2014 Viator Ambassadorship team. Excited because as a world leader in tours and experiences, Viator is a brand I’ve enjoyed partnering with and freelancing for since 2012, and a bit proud too — because it’s an honor to be asked to represent a brand you…

New Orleans Nightlife: Getting Off Bourbon Street thumbnail

Now, I know what you’re thinking about the three posts I’ve written so far about my girl’s trip to New Orleans. Thanks for the tip on that crazy stylish and affordable boutique hotel! Nice photos of the Garden District and the French Quarter. And very cute attempt at pretending you didn’t drink 2,000 calories per day…

The Great Escape: Month 60 Roundup thumbnail

Oh, my monthly roundups. They are so ridiculously out of sync with real time now (this post is basically eleven months late, whoops!) that I recently considered axing the series, but I decided to play catch up instead — so brace yourself for a couple of these coming up! However, now that I’m writing on multiple…

Father’s Day from Above: A Helicopter Ride over Los Angeles thumbnail

Like Father’s Day, for example. Ever since I started spending more of them away…

Hotel Crush: Casas Brancas in Búzios thumbnail

It’s been called the Brazilian St. Tropez and the Hamptons of Rio; basically, it’s this pocket of the planet’s infamous playground for the rich and famous. Welcome to Búzios, Brazil. I’ve never been to the Hamptons and I couldn’t point out St. Tropez on a map, but I knew I had to go to Búzios. Less than three…

Street Art, Sunset and Sugarloaf: The Perfect Last Day in Rio de Janeiro thumbnail

A week in Rio de Janeiro flew by. I knew it would. Heather and I had debated what to do with our final day in the city. There were so many options! We’d hit a lot of the major must-sees — we’d woken up before dawn to be (literally) the first two people at Christ Redeemer, we’d…

Floating on a Feeling: One Night at Rainforest Camp thumbnail

After our amazing first day and night at the aptly-named Elephant Camp, we woke up raring to go for the second and third days of our adventure with Elephant Hills in Khao Sok National Park. Elephant Camp, with its luxury tents set in the jungle, was already quite the departure from reality. Rainforest Camp, the sister…
