unexpected itineraries: two weeks in thailand

unexpected itineraries: two weeks in thailand

Let’s talk about Thailand! Thailand is a great place. Sure, there are the 18-year-old gap-yearers running full force towards the full moon parties, and there are those who call themselves “true backpackers” who think Thailand has become too touristy, but Thailand is a gem. If you’re doing a massive Southeast Asia trip, I’d recommending going [...]

unexpected dreams: fitness vacation

Let's talk about some wanderlust! Fitness and travel are two things that I'd absolutely love to intertwine. While possible, I'll admit, it's not the easiest thing to do. Enter the concept of a dream fitness vacation. I recently came across Tommy John, who is currently promoting their "Go Anywhere" line with a mission to make [...]

unexpected kent: dover, canterbury, and the seaside

Hi guys! Earlier this month, I took a very short, but very sweet trip to Kent, England. Sometimes trips are great because of the company you're with, not the actual destination, and I'll admit, I thought this would be one of those trips. I was so wrong! Kent is full of so much beauty and [...]

Before coming here, after telling [...]

Although just a short trip away from Basel, the vibe is entirely different. It's amazing how two places right next to each other can [...]

Singapore is the kind of place that charms you, and well, despite being incredibly excited about relocating to Europe, we miss our Singapore home! So I decided to make some good old [...]
