Gili Trawangan

 The diving in Gili Trawangan is amazing! I saw so many turtles, sharks, and so many fish I’ve never seen, or even knew existed before this trip. I also did my first night dive and saw a few more sharks, and plenty of lobsters. To tell you the truth, I was terrified about going on…

Ubud

Traveling by motor bike/scooter is so much fun, and easy. We rented one in Kuta and drove to Ubud. It should of taken us an hour and a half but instead we got there in about two hours, because we kept getting lost. Since we didn’t have Gps or any maps, all you have to do is…

Bali

Bali is everything I imagined it would be and more. This is my first time in Indonesia and I’m sure I’ll be back soon. We are in Kuta Beach, it’s very touristy, filled with Western restaurants, and people trying to sell you stuff on the beach- but the Bali vibe is great. How we got…

Bangkok

Tonight is our last night in Thailand, and I can’t believe it. I’m going to miss it here, but I’m excited to spend the last days of our vacation in Bali. We arrived in Bangkok yesterday around 2:30pm, and we booked a hotel at an airport kiosk. Our flight to Indonesia is at 6am so…

Koh Lanta

Koh Lanta is a beautiful, quiet island. We decided to stay here for a couple days, and for the first time on our trip, we actually got to sleep in.  We’ve been on the go since we got here, waking up early for diving, adventure tours or traveling. How we got here: One hour ferry…

Koh Phi Phi

Maya Bay is “the beach” from the movie.  It is really beautiful, but extremely busy, and you need to take a boat to get there. You can’t walk 5 feet in Phi Phi without seeing a company that offers a tour there.  Around lunch time the place turns into a circus, with many more boats,…

Koh Tao

The journey

18 hours on a plane, 9 hours on a train and 6 hours on a ferry- that’s how long Christian and I have traveled so far, and it’s only day three of our trip. The flight from LAX to Taiwan wasn’t too rough, considering I was in the middle seat for 14 hours. Eek! We…

The destination

Three weeks in Thailand and Indonesia- nothing booked before the trip, no travel books/guides, and only a vague idea of where we want to go. Let the adventure begin!  (Photos taken in Ko Tao, Thailand)
