Thailand

The Healthy Guide to Chiang Mai

  Sleepy late mornings when guesthouses open their doors     ladies sweep the streets like flower carpeted floors.     Gilded roof temples glisten in the sun     orange robed monks catch the eyes of everyone.     Blocks alternate businesses but it’s pretty much same...

Which Thai Island is Right for You?

  The mythical islands in Thailand conjure vivid images of paradise. Limestone karsts emerging out of the glassy turquoise sea. Palm trees swaying over white sand beaches. An underwater world teeming with colorful coral and tropical fish.     Indeed I’ve had...

Thank You Koh Tao

  There’s no denying     that Koh Tao     is incredibly touristic.     Backpackers flock from across the globe to call the underwater world their home.     Every palm shaded turquoise bay boasts resorts restaurants reggae.     Italian and French, green juice and...

Pick Your Pleasure on Koh Phangan

  The island throbs and pulses with energy.     The moon glows rotund and full casting its light across the cerulean sea.     Bodies crowd water vessels directed by its magnetic pull.     DJs and backpackers yogis and healers     the weary seeking a good time    ...

Life is Better in Koh Lanta

  I awaken to the image of the sun flooded golden shore on Koh Lanta.     I walk the dusty path past bungalows and bars where my neighbors stay swaddled in slumber.     Quiet blankets the beach and shade spills across the sand;     blessed protection from the intense...

Tonsai Bay Makes Me Never Want to Grow Up

  In a faraway place     where limestone crags grow from a glowing sheet of glass     where paths weave from the jungle all leading to the beach     where tides recede for miles unveiling the rocky life beneath     I found Neverland.     I found the pirates who guard...

Same Same But Different

  When I first touched down in Thailand three and a half months ago I felt weightless. I could hardly contain my excitement as I prepared for the adventures that awaited me.     It’s no secret that I struggled to feel enchanted and balanced in Vietnam and Thailand...

Lonely Beach Ain’t Lonely No More

  I arrived in Lonely Beach with an overwhelming desire to be alone.     Not just to be alone but to feel uncertain lost, confused lonely.     Perhaps I sound a bit odd.     Thailand as much as I loved it depleted me     with too many backpackers and an unexpected...

This is Bangkok

  The sun rises over Khao San Road.     Inebriated Brits lay comatose in massage chairs while Thai women rub them. One awakens from his slumber and offers me the key to his hotel room.     A robed monk walks quietly down the littered street. A smoothie vendor exits...

Life in Pai

  Sunlight creeps through the cracks of your bamboo hut.     Beyond your shutters diligent workers harvest their crop in expansive rice fields.     The town sleeps as you walk the path along the river into the village.     A secret courtyard welcomes you with organic...

My Release in Chiang Mai

  I felt the large cylinder inflate with heat, loosened my grip, and let it go.   In one harmonious exhale thousands of glowing paper lanterns ascended into the night sky. The beaming vessels soared, liberated, uniting in a sea of glittering stars.   Worries, fears,...

Rockstars and Temples in Ayutthaya

  Silence and stillness enveloped me as I watched the sun set behind Wat Chaiwattharan.     Chapels rose majestically from a manicured lawn. The calm of my surroundings seeped into my skin.     Beheaded Buddhas and pilfered brick walls depicted the city’s tragic fall....

The Land of Smiles

  My spirits lifted when I touched down in the land of smiles.     At immigration I was offered a stamp and a welcoming “sah-wah-dee-kah!” Tour desks and workers eagerly waited to lend a helping hand. Bus drivers, street vendors, bystanders all spoke English?!?!    ...
