Happy faces of three generations at the Phuket Tin Mine Museum

Monday Montage: I am happy

I dropped my mom off at the airport a couple of nights ago… and for a bit I wallowed (ok, I wallowed for a whole day), but I am now filled with feelings of happiness. I am happy because my mom chose to spend her time and money traveling all the way to Thailand and making me, Chad, and Z feel extra special… Read more →

Going Back In Time at the Phuket Tin

Going Back in Time… The Phuket Tin Mine Museum

I love museums. Like really love them (oops, my California accent just slipped out, didn’t it?). Unfortunately Chad is not that much of a fan of them, so I often forgo time at museums in favor of spending time not boring my poor husband. I guess anyone could get bored while I spend eons hours reading every single plaque on each exhibit.… Read more →

I had to start with our cute puppy sleeping on my lap. That's a great start to any Monday, right?

Monday Montage: Mondays…..

Yep, the dreaded Mondays. Seriously, who can say they like Mondays? I don’t think I have met anyone that can say that Monday doesn’t come with it’s own special form of hell most weeks.  Even here in Phuket, despite the fact that we live as expats and don’t work normal 9 to 5 jobs, it still feels like a Monday. The hustle… Read more →

It is the annual Baba (Peranakan) Wedding in Old Town Phuket. “Baba” refers to Chinese immigrants who migrated to Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand during the 19th century. Here in Phuket many came to work… Read more →

Monday Montage: Amazing Days

There are days that make life feel absolutely amazing, and the day I picked up my mom from Phuket airport was definitely one of those days. Hugging her after so long was probably the highlight of my year so far. I admit I even cried tears of happiness (thank goodness for waterproof eyeliner)! So far we have had pretty good weather… Read more →

Catching Up and Getting Ready

It has been a rainy week here in Phuket, well rainy with bits of time that are hot as hades. Lucky for me the hellish heat has given me enough time to do some laundry. I know, it is an exciting life I lead, right? But really it is! And it is even going to be more exciting in the coming weeks.… Read more →

Monday Montage: 300!

This is my 300th post! I can hardly believe that Chad, Z, and I are still on this adventure of ours! It has been quite the trip so far… I am so thankful that you all are still here and keeping me company through your reading our posts and your lovely comments (if you haven’t commented yet, here is you… Read more →


3 Ways to Make Long-Term Travel Stressful

Chad, Z, and I have been living and traveling outside our home country of America for over two years now. The first year all we did was travel from place to place with no home base. During that time I learned some ways that I could make our travels stressful. It’s a special gift that I have, so I decided to share them… Read more →
