After one full year on the road, here’s everything we’re doing to afford full-time travel and make this lifestyle work.
We’ve officially been on the road for a whole year! Today, we’re looking back on the highs and lows of the past twelve months, including our most exciting adventures and the biggest challenges of working while traveling.
My 24-hour visit to Sihanoukville and Otres Beach was filled with activity – and proved that this area of southern Cambodia is worth a visit (even if it’s a quick one).
Why just look up at Southeast Asia’s limestone mountains when you could climb them? Ryan went rock climbing in Cambodia (with a company called Climbodia, ha!) and tried everything from top roping to rappelling.
Thanks to some lucky timing, we got to attend the 2017 Luang Prabang Film Festival in Laos. This annual festival celebrates Southeast Asian cinema, supports local filmmakers, and gives Lao people a rare chance to go to the movies.
During our trip to George Town, the quirky but charming capital of Penang, we quickly understood why people seem to love this town so much. The stunning street art, interesting architecture, and delicious food are just the beginning.
This holiday season, give the travelers in your life something they’ll really love. From beautiful home decor to super practical gear, these are our top gift ideas for people who travel.
Supporting small businesses is part of being a responsible traveler, and we believe it starts at home. Lots of small companies are making unique travel and outdoor gear, and in honor of Small Business Saturday, these are some of our favorite products.

After a change of plans, we ended up visiting Ao Nang in the popular province of Krabi. It was…not our favorite place in Thailand. But we did find some things to appreciate there, so here’s the good and the bad.
Bangkok may be a massive urban center, but it turns out this city has a number of beautiful green spaces. Plus, a day out in a park makes a great respite from all the chaos.
We visited Koh Kood hoping for a quiet, laid-back Thai island without too many crowds. It delivered just that.
Want to visit a not-too-touristy beach in Thailand? Head to the southern tip of Koh Chang. Here’s everything you need to know about traveling to the island.
If you’re an avid yogi, or even just a curious beginner, maybe you’ve thought about doing a yoga retreat. Jen’s reliving her time at the Whole & Happy Retreat in southeastern Thailand, a magical week full of yoga classes, relaxation, introspection, and wonderful community.
You probably wouldn’t expect Cambodia to have any microbreweries – but it turns out there’s six! Ryan visited them all, and now he’s sharing the highlights (and lowlights) of each, including where to find the best IPA, take a date you want to impress, and have an interesting local experience.
