Spend just hours in Thailand, and it’ll become apparent just how serious the stray dog issue is here. There are over 120,000 in Bangkok alone. (more…)
Sawatdee from the tropical island of Koh Tao! I’ve been here in the Gulf of Thailand for around a week now, and its more incredible that I could have imagined.
Ever thought about making extra money online, but weren’t sure where to begin?
I’d be willing to bet that most people would answer that question with a “yes”. And that’s why I’ve put together this list of easy ways to start bringing in some of that sweet, sweet Internet money.
As an American, you’re allowed visa-free entry into Thailand for 30 days at a stretch. Since I’m here for 2 months, but didn’t bother prearranging for an extended 60-day visa, it was time to do a little border-hopping to renew my stay. And what better place to go than Cambodia?
When the lavish MAYA Lifestyle Shopping Center (that name is a bit of a mouthful) opened in February of last year, it brought a brand-new addition to Chiang Mai’s coworking scene. CAMP, an acronym for Creative and Meeting Place, is a large and modern environment with plenty to offer the digital nomad.
This was the first coworking space I visited in Thailand, and it’s kept me coming back again and again.

I arrived in Thailand with the goal of going full “vacation-mode” during my first week. After plenty of great food and incredible sightseeing, I was ready to get back in the groove. But Pai had other plans.
One of the things I’ve been looking forward to since arriving in Thailand is the chance to grab one of those famous, dirt-cheap Thai massages. So when the heat and humidity got truly brutal the other day (as it does most days), it seemed like the perfect time to scratch that itch.

After a 12-hour flight, a 3-hour layover, and another 4-hour flight, I finally arrived in Bangkok a few days ago. This post is a bit delayed, as at the time of writing I’ve actually just reached Chiang Mai (more on this in my next update). But there’s still plenty to share!
Have to start somewhere, right? So hello – I’m Eric, and this is my website. And although it’s pretty bare-bones at the moment, the fact is that it’s taken me a while to get to this point.
