Sunrise and Sunset in Bagan, Myanmar

Sunrise and Sunset in Bagan, Myanmar

We arrived in Bagan with almost no plans other than wanting to catch a sunrise and sunset at some point. And ideally we would find a quiet spot away from the usual tourist hotspots which wouldn’t require fighting for space. We found a pagoda to climb for each of these that gave us exactly what we were hoping for. πŸ™‚ ... Read More »

The Best Way To See Bagan

The Best Way To See Bagan

Bagan, Myanmar is easily one of the most picturesque cities we have ever visited. While it’s nearly impossible to visit the 3,100+ pagodas and temples in one trip, you can visit a number of them by renting e-bikes, bicycles or hiring a guide/driver. Walking is possible, but you won’t make it very far as the sights are spread out quite ... Read More »

Yangon Wake-up Call

Yangon Wake-up Call

We sat in our Yangon guesthouse thinking, “What the heck are we still doing here?” After four days in Yangon, the last two with basically no internet, we were questioning our decision on coming to Myanmar. Our first couple days in the city were busy with seeing pagodas and taking the circle train around town, but we weren’t digging the ... Read More »

Merry Christmas From Thailand!

Merry Christmas From Thailand!

Merry Christmas! We’re celebrating in Chiang Mai, Thailand.Β Even though it’s a sunny and beautiful 85 degrees today we were lucky enough to find snow, sort of. The snow is made from bags of SALT! It’s not packable and you can’t build a snowman, but we did see plenty of “salt castles!” Merry Christmas from us to you. We hope you ... Read More »

Throw Momma From The (Yangon) Train

Throw Momma From The (Yangon) Train

When else could I work this 1980s movie title into a blog post? πŸ™‚ While in Yangon we decided we wanted to see more of the city, which our legs couldn’t get us to alone. After doing some quick research it was obvious the best and cheapest way to get around was to jump on the circle train. The Yangon ... Read More »

Indonesia Travel Costs: Spending Breakdown

Indonesia Travel Costs: Spending Breakdown

The goal for our RTW trip is to keep spending to under $100 USD/day. This spending breakdown is really just of Bali since we decided not to leave the island. We split our time on Bali between the cities of Les, Ubud, and Pecatu. When we booked our flights into and out of Denpasar, we had the intention of leaving ... Read More »

Our Top 5 From Ubud, Bali

Our Top 5 From Ubud, Bali

We enjoyed our time in Ubud tremendously and would highly recommend a visit for anyone considering it. Ubud is a yogi and healthy eaters paradise. We loved finally having the ability to eat healthy and at a low cost! After a couple months on the road and constantly eating food that made us feel slow and sluggish, it was a ... Read More »

Here is a little bit of what we found during our week on the Java Sea. The Locals HAPPY! HAPPY! HAPPY! I’m ... Read More »

Myanmar: A Golden Country

Myanmar: A Golden Country

We have been in Myanmar for a few days now and have learned a couple things: it has absolutely stunning sites and weak wi-fi. We sort of expected the wi-fi issue, so it hasn’t been too big of a pain though. We would have liked to get a few more posts up, but they will just have to wait. πŸ™‚ ... Read More »

Waterfalls and Water Palaces Galore!

Waterfalls and Water Palaces Galore!

Bali has a number of beautiful waterfalls and water palaces and we were lucky enough to see a few during our time on the island. The ones we saw were easily worth the price of admission, which was generally only a couple dollars. We really enjoyed our time at each place we stopped and we would have spent even more ...
