14 things I realized being sober in Thailand

I really didn’t think it through when I pledged 100 days of no booze. There I was after a particularly shit-tastic break-up and my normally loyal and thoughtful brain decided to punish itself, or me, or both. One-hundred days of no booze, it said. Get your life in order, it said. Figure shit out, it […]

liveaboard to Richelieu Rock

Richelieu Rock. That’s what I’d heard. That’s what they said. If you’re a diver in Thailand, that’s the place you need to see. And so began my quest to find the right liveaboard to see this and a few other sites in the Andaman Sea – the Similan Islands, including Koh Bon and Koh Tachai. […]

Pattaya to Koh Mak

Posted from Laem Ngop, Trat, Thailand. Trying to figure out my way to Koh Mak from Pattaya during low season wasn’t as straight and narrow as one would think. But it’s easy to get there once you know the ins and outs. The thing about low season is many services are on hiatus until the […]

Posted from Pattaya, Chon Buri, Thailand. After diving on Koh Tao I decided to head back up to Bangkok for a few days to do some shopping I neglected to do two weeks before and spend some more time with my friend. Plus, since she has weekends off, we decided we would head to Pattaya […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
