If you head south to Canngu while in Bali go with the intention to eat and be lazy. It is the perfect hub for partiers and digital nomads. Strange mix but it offers things that both need. Cheap places to stay, the beach and Instagram-able cafes. I had spent a week sight seeing and doing…

Cebu City Street Food
My favorite thing to do when I get to a city is eat. And eat some more and just when you think I am done, keep eating. This is why food tours are so good to me. It allows me to do this with no judgement.
Hiking in Banaue
In my efforts to push myself and see different parts of the places I visited I signed up for a press trip to Banaue and Sagada. Rice terraces and hanging coffins. Sounded tough but doable. Maybe I’ll start doing the ones that just involve lying on beaches,

Thailand: Buffalo Street Food Tour
The more food tours I do the more I am convinced that there is no better way to learn about where you are and who the locals are then to eat what they eat. Whether it is a scorpion or a dumpling, the kind of food people eat is representative of their culture, their surroundings…
Surin, Thailand : Silk Weaving, Ruins and Elephants!
Press trips can be really exhausting. It is lots of being ushered around to jam in as much as possible in a short time. Never the less I was excited to be going on my first official one. Even if I wasn’t all too sure where I was headed or what I would be doing.
Looking for a Thai Massage?
Who doesn’t love getting a massage? I almost never get them when I am home because they are expensive. Not wanting to miss a chance I signed up for two different ones when choosing excursions for TBEX. It was great to see two totally different kinds of Thai massage experiences.
Bar Hopping in Ratchaprosong, Bangkok
