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.
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?

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.
