Since I started my little “Total Travel Disasters” series, I’ve highlighted travel meltdowns in which I was, more or less, an unwitting victim. Getting screwed with a broken camper rental. Being targeted by a bed and breakfast tyrant. Finding ourselves on the wrong side of a battle with a rental car in Britain. This post is […]

If you’d thought I hit my exciting announcement quota on the first half of 2018 already, have you got another thing coming. Koh Tao is a pretty small island — literally just eight square miles — so when the lightbulb first went on that I wanted to share my Koh Tao with the world in a […]

If my recent Maui coverage has made anything clear, it’s this: I’m an East Maui kind of girl. And if there’s one town that I personally consider the soul of the island, it’s unassuming little blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Paia. This funky new-age surfer town is essentially the hub of Maui’s North Shore, despite its diminutive size. There’s boutique […]

If you dream of exploring Maui beyond the busy resort towns and the luxury hotels, of escaping somewhere no one will try to sell you a snorkel tour or a luau show, or of falling asleep under the stars and waking up next to the ocean, then this is the Maui trip you’ve been waiting for. […]

Jumping out of chronological order to skip ahead and tell you about my February adventures! Weâll be back to Hawaii soon <3 Over my last three trips, I’ve fallen pretty crazy in love with the surreal skyline, efficient energy, futuristic architecture and extreme organization that are hallmarks of Singapore’s downtown core. But I’ve also started to […]

Jumping out of chronological order to skip ahead and tell you about my February adventures! We’ll be back to Hawaii soon <3 When Ian and I were planning our trip to Telunas Resort in Indonesia, we were thrilled that this was a trip where getting there was going to be half the fun. Why?

Jumping out of chronological order to skip ahead and tell you about my February adventures! We’ll be back to Hawaii soon <3 I know that to some people, our entire lives kind of look like one long, never-ending vacation. But in reality, Ian and I get frazzled and overworked and disconnected from what’s important like everyone […]

When you dream of Oahu, whether you’ve been here before or not, you probably close your eyes and picture the waves of North Shore. A lei-covered luau. Maybe a sunset on Waikiki Beach. The pineapple whip at the Dole Plantation. Perhaps the calm beaches of Kailua. One area you might not think to explore? Oahu’s equal […]

Waikiki seems to be one of those places that some travelers love, and some travelers love to hate. I’d been to Waikiki before, and had seen many of it’s major sites — Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor, The Aquarium, a sunset booze cruise and beyond — but I’d never actually stayed there or taken the time to […]
