14 things I realized being sober in Thailand

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. […]

sleepy Koh Chang

Posted from Ko Chang, Trat, Thailand. I need to face facts. While I do love the country and being in the wilderness, the city-girl in me can only go so long without my bright lights and chaos before I begin to wonder if civilization has imploded.

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 […]

back in Bangkok

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. It took three hours in Bangkok for a bird to poop on me. People say it’s a good sign, but I think the people who say this saw Under the Tuscan Sun and have never been shit on by a pigeon. I tried to brush it off, literally, with a […]

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 […]
