Sri Lanka Me Lazy

Sri Lanka Me Lazy

Ayubowan Folks,Back in Australia, we tried to tell someone that traveling was more stressful than daily life.  We argued that always having to plan your way forward and never being comfortable out-weighed the stress of the 'real world.'  He nearly doubled over from laughing at us, and told us we were totally out of touch [...]

Singapore Slingin’

Singapore Slingin’

Ni hao, Or more appropriately “hello” as Singapore has a whopping four national languages, English included. This made for a very stress-free (and expensive) time in the cleanest city/island/country (still confused on this identification) in the world, Singapore!

Let’s take it from the top! After two weeks of sunshine in Thailand, we [...]

Throuple Takes Thailand

Sawasdee Ka and Happy New Year! They say nothing can prepare you for Bangkok, but what those naysayers don’t have by their side is a (practically) fluent Thai speaking, itinerary binding, third-wheeling, survival ninja - I’m talking to you, Matt!  For our eighth country, we decided five months was enough of a honeymoon, so we invited [...]
