How I Got My Thai Drivers License in 20 Easy Steps

There are many advantages to having a Thailand drivers license while living in Thailand besides the obvious not wanting a ticket or to be thrown in jail. Many of the attractions and things to do in this amazing country have a dual admission price system. Tourist prices, and local prices. Most places will give you the locals price (sometimes as… Read more →

Monday Montage: Plans and Days Off

Our time in Bangkok did not go as planned, but it was not a total waste (3 PAIRS OF SHOES!!!!). We really enjoyed walking around the city again. Most of my pictures in today’s Monday Montage are from our time there. On a completely different note… There are times in my life lately that have been so busy and crazy that I… Read more →


Bangkok, or How the Best Laid Plans of And Three To Go Often Go Awry

I remember now why I stopped trying to plan what we would do while we were traveling and just went with a spontaneous and flexible attitude, hoping that we would have fun along the way. It is because our plans often go awry and then I am left feeling like I missed out (just a little). My luck with planning was… Read more →

Z and I went for a walk the other day, but we did not make it very far. The heat made us turn around and take the scooter to go get our ice cream,

Monday Montage: Help With Our Day in Bangkok

We get to take a completely unplanned and spontaneous trip to Bangkok soon and are making it our monthly mini-vacation from Phuket. We get one whole day to have fun in the crazy and fun city! So now the decision of what to do is supposed to happen. Right, that’s what happens next? Seriously, why is this so difficult for me?! I know I used… Read more →

And I hope that your Monday is fabulous, wonderful, and everything that a Friday feels like. Now it’s your turn! If you celebrate Mothers Day, what did you do? On a… Read more →


Kid-Friendly Things to Do on Rainy Days in Phuket

Rainy season is fast approaching here in Phuket, or at least I am hoping so. The crazy, hot heat is even too much for me! I dream of more rain. Yep, you read that right, I am ready for cooler weather. In my defense, this is the hottest time of the year on the island and I think everyone here is slowly… Read more →

Sunset in Chalong, Phuket. I just love the sunsets here.

Monday Montage: May the Fourth Be With You

Are you guys Star Wars fans? Well, I married one… in fact Chad has more Star Wars tattoos than anyone else I have ever met (if you are wondering, he has three). Now he has brainwashed shared his love of Star Wars with Z. Admittedly one of the first things she ever watched was Star Wars, the original movie… when… Read more →


The Sunset Beach Resort, Koh Kho Khao, Thailand

One of the awesome things about visiting (or living in) Thailand is being able to stay at amazing resorts on the cheap. A couple of weeks ago, Chad, Z, and I re-realized this when we went on a spontaneous trip to Koh Kho Khao. Our destination for our time in Koh Kho Khao  was The Sunset Beach Resort. (**DISCLAIMER: The Sunset… Read more →

I really wish I could take credit for this one. I love it!

Monday Montage: Phuket Through Z’s Eyes

Recently Zoë has taken an interest in taking photographs. She has always taken random photos, but lately her photos have been really artistic… and that is not just mommy bragging (well, maybe a little). I actually think that her photos are better than mine! Not only does she take interesting and candid photos, but they are usually taken from her… Read more →


A Weekend Away in Koh Kho Khao

 Even in Thailand, life can become mundane if you let it. Chad and I were both feeling a little unsettled being so settled recently and decided that we needed to get away for the weekend. Through chance and happenstance we ended up deciding on Koh Kho Khao. We had heard many good things about Khao Lak and originally decided that we would… Read more →
